Nicole on Via Clerici // Vintage Breakfast at Tiffany’s Tote Bag
Nicole’s retro Breakfast at Tiffany’s tote bag brings back memory to the unforgettable Audrey Hepburn. The iconic actress starred in 28 films over the course of her career, but none of her roles was more famous than Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The 1961 Truman Capote adaptation turned eating a pastry while window-shopping into a whimsical rite of passage and is forever synonymous with the generously browed Hepburn.
Today it is hard to imagine anyone else than Audrey Hepburn as troubled call girl Holly Golightly, but Truman Capote, on whose novel Blake Edwar’s movie was based, was totally disappointed when Audrey Hepburn was cast in the role. When Capote sold the rights to Paramount, he originally had envisioned Marilyn Monroe as Holly and believed that Audrey was completely wrong for the part. Today we also know that the guy was utterly wrong.
