Do You Remember How You Felt When You First Witnessed This Moment?

When Audrey Hepburn appeared on New York's Fifth Avenue, looking the epitome of chic in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany's, it took our breath away.

Ms Hepburn appeared in the very first issue of Marie Claire and, 25 years on, she is still one of our ultimate style icons.
The gorgeous black satin sheath gown that she wore in the iconic opening sequence of the 1961 classic was designed for her by Hubert de Givenchy. It fitted her like a glove and has been considered one of the biggest fashion moments in film history ever since. 
Audrey’s matching elbow-length gloves, lashings of pearls and insouciant dark glasses completed the stunning look. Too chic for words.
