Halloween in Paris: The Chicest Costume
Fri 28 Oct 2011
Looking for a classic and totally chic costume to celebrate Halloween this year? We love Audrey Hepburn in the iconic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s as Truman Capote’s legendary free spirit, Holly Golightly. All you need is her signature LBD (little black dress) and a few accessories, and your outfit is complete!
Our ensemble was inspired by the opening scene of the film, when Hepburn is seen having her breakfast outside Tiffany’s on 5th Avenue in New York. But it could easily have taken place on boulevard Haussmann outside Tiffany’s Paris flagship. To complete the look, string on this quintessential pearl necklace and pin your hair up in a classic chignon, crowned with a diamond brooch. You will be looking oh so chic with opera-length gloves and a pair of Tom Ford cat-eye sunglasses. And don’t forget your beloved cat, named Cat! Before you go out on the town, we suggest you get into character with the Girls’ Guide’s Audrey Hepburn walking trip.
