Audrey Hepburn And Her Iconic Vintage Glasses

Audrey Hepburn And Her Iconic Vintage Glasses


Who can forget the poster of “Breakfast at Tiffany”? Even after so many decades the poster with a smiling Audrey Hepburn has a very high recall value. The only thing missing in that poster is a pair of vintage glasses which would have taken up the value of poster a few notches higher!

However in spite of their absence in the poster, Audrey Hepburn did wear aviator glasses in the movie, with the same dress in the poster and that unforgettable pearl necklace around her neck. She was an actress who made glasses work with any dress, whether a cocktail dress or a little black dress. In an iconic image from the same movie, Hepburn is seen wearing oversized glasses. Her hair is neatly tied up in a bun with a few strands falling on her forehead and that highlights the glasses even more. She is looking straight at the camera and her eyes are quite visible through the big black eyeglasses.
