Breakfast at Tiffany’s turns 50

When we got invited to a screening at Lincoln Center to watch Breakfast at Tiffany‘s and hear a prologue by Julia Andrews, we couldn’t contain our excitement. The occasion was a celebration for the 50th anniversary of the film, based on the novel of Truman Capote, starring the timeless Audrey Hepburn. Countless essays have been written about the elegance of Audrey Hepburn, Miss Holly Golightly in this film, the modern look of this New Yorker and the understated glamour that is perfectly portrayed throughout the movie. Miss Golightly shocked the crowds back then with her independent and cheerful spirit and her fearless attitude to find her true love in the world. Watching the movie once again, we got mesmerized by her and left the theatre in awe. . . In awe because it is lovely to be reminded from time to time that style does not mean you have to spend a fortune on your wardrobe. Style is a way of life. . . Maybe we will dress up as Holly this Halloween. . . Who needs to see another hot nurse really?
