Based on a Truman Capote story, Audrey Hepburn's portrayal of Holly as the naïve, eccentric gold digger is generally considered to be the actress's most memorable and identifiable role and one of the most iconic images of 20th century American cinema.  

The title 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' is based on the opening scene where Holly is window-shopping at Tiffany's jewels at six in the morning while nibbling Danish pastry and sipping coffee from a paper cup.

Audrey's recipe for Beauty
  • For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. 
  • For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
  • For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
  • For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
  • For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone. 
  •  People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. 
  • Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. 
  • As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others. AH
