I've partnered up with Utopiat again to bring you another Audrey Hepburn inspired look. This time I've channeled iconic NYC party girl, Holly Golightly. The dress I am wearing is part of the Audrey Hepburn Costume Collection, but instead of copying the outfit from the movie exactly, I styled this classic LBD ensemble in my own way. I added vintage sunglasses, polka dot tights, and my Kate Spade taxi flats to put my own quirky twist on this look.
I originally planned to shoot these photos at 169 East 71st street, the address of the brownstone where the exterior shots were filmed for Breakfast at Tiffany's. I had visited this brownstone about 3 years ago. However, since then, the brownstone has sold to a new owner. When I arrived to take photos the other day, there was construction being done on the front of the house, and the iconic dark green door looked to be completely sanded down, assuming they are replacing or repainting it. We ended up taking the photos across the street at a more photogenic house. Even though its not the same brownstone as in the movie, I think the photos still get the point across and feel reminiscent enough of the film. I hope the owners of the brownstone leave the door and repaint it to its original color. Even though it's just the door of the home of a fictional character, Breakfast at Tiffany's is such an iconic movie, it would make me upset to know a part of history is disappearing.
