You Need to See This Breakfast at Tiffany’s-Inspired Wedding Dress Collection
There are some looks that never go out of style, and Audrey Hepburn’s LBD, pearls, arm-length gloves, and oversized sunnies in the 1961 opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of them.
For those that can’t get over the classic Hubert de Givenchy frock, you’re in luck: You can now get married in a gown inspired by it. For its 20th anniversary, Reem Acra is releasing an entire black and white bridal collection as an ode to the film.
The designer gave a sneak peek of the gowns featured in a new spread for Harper’s Bazaar over on the official Instagram page.
“There’s isn’t a fashion girl or film buff who isn’t familiar with the iconic image of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, stepping out of a yellow taxi at golden hour, coffee cup and pasty-bagged Danish in hand,” the caption reads. “Clad in a black column gown designed specifically for the scene by Hubert de Givenchy — along with gobs of pearls and diamonds — she gazes longingly into the window of Tiffany & Co., admiring its sparkling contents as she takes a bite of her breakfast. It’s too early for the bustle of tourists or the gaggle of Upper East Side shoppers to interrupt her in what feels like an almost religious ritual. And there, on the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue in New York City, where the historic Tiffany & Co. flagship sits as a beacon of sophistication, elegance, and glamour, BAZAAR.com pays homage to Hepburn in what is now know as one of fashion history’s best moments. It was the magic of that noteworthy scene that led Reem Acra straight to Tiffany & Co. upon her arrival to New York from her native Lebanon more than 20 years ago.”
A single gown quickly became an entire collection with visits to Tiffany & Co.’s archives for design inspo.
“Acra turned to the finest and most iconic pieces for inspiration, namely the Tiffany Diamond, a 128.54 carat canary diamond set on a strand of more than 100 carts of white diamonds, prominently placed in the store’s entrance and no longer available for sale,” a different caption states.
Styles range from romantic black lace and slim silhouettes with bejeweled sleeves and necklines and nods to Tiffany & Co. throughout (think bows, ribbons, and the like) to more traditional white ballgown tulle skirts with incredible floral embroidering (a trending look for bridal 2017).
