I have to begin with the unforgettable opening scene of the 1961 (1961?!! That long ago…) romantic, comedy film ~ Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Where the iconic Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, all in black and dressed in jewels… timeless and sublime, standing outside, gazing in at Tiffany’s.
Produced before most of us were born, the first time I watched it was when I was in my early twenties. Growing up in Africa I remember watching Audrey Hepburn “films” but not this one. This is my absolute favourite, in fashion, style and jewels. It’s mesmerizing.
Are you a fan of big jewellery, big necklaces? I would think the only way to ‘go big’ is the way she has, on a blank canvas.
Are there any films or movies you can recommend, where jewels were worn in a particular or memorable style?
