The It Dress

Hello strangers! I have not forgotten you, never fear. Instead, I've been busy. As usual. Amongst this busyness is completely revamping the website from the ground up, so rest assured that this is for your benefit. :)

Anyway, my friend Natalia sent me a fantastic little article this morning, and I just had to share. A recent survey was taken out on the most iconic female screen outfit of all time, and Holly Golightly's long black evening gown beat out some stiff competition to come out on top. The long little black dress even beat Marilyn Monroe's unforgettable halter neck dress from The Seven Year Itch and Keira Knightley's stunning green gown from Atonement. You can read the article, courtesy of The Daily Mail, here, and see who else rounded out the top ten.

It's nice to see that 50 years on, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Audrey and Givenchy are still as influential as ever. As Coco Chanel once said: "Fashion fades, only style remains the same."

Audrey Hepburn's sophisticated style is timeless, and I'm glad her elegance lives on.

YAY! there was something like that online and audrey came in 4TH place! behind carrie bradshaw's wedding dress, marilyn monroe's "happy birthday mr.president" dress, and gwyneth paltrow's pink oscar dress from 1999. anyways i love that B@T'S dress next to the dress she wore in sabrina.
