The It Dress

4 Comments 01 June 2010

Hello strangers! I have not forgotten you, never fear. Instead, I’ve been busy. As usual. Amongst this busyness is completely revamping the website from the ground up, so rest assured that this is for your benefit. 🙂

Anyway, my friend Natalia sent me a fantastic little article this morning, and I just had to share. A recent survey was taken out on the most iconic female screen outfit of all time, and Holly Golightly’s long black evening gown beat out some stiff competition to come out on top. The long little black dress even beat Marilyn Monroe’s unforgettable halter neck dress from The Seven Year Itch and Keira Knightley’s stunning green gown from Atonement. You can read the article, courtesy of The Daily Mail, here, and see who else rounded out the top ten.

It’s nice to see that 50 years on, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Audrey and Givenchy are still as influential as ever. As Coco Chanel once said: “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”

    Again, I say that I am 11 and I love her. It just goes to show people that children and teenagers in the modern day will appreciate the movies and films and classics if they just saw or knew about them! We are having a dance for the fifth graders in my school and my dress is totally Audrey~ it has that audrey-ish neckline with the sleeveless look. Its main color is bright but yet it appears to look like some sort of pastel coloured lace. I love it. We voted for the theme today and I voted for holly wood…

    I am always watching an old movie. And one day my friend asked me if she could watch one of them with me… of course I had been chanting and singing the songs, along with having the script basically memorized and reciting the lines everytime I felt awfully happy. (which is often) I was facinated by the older movies since an early age, but not everyone gets that lucky exposure.

    The first awakening book that I ever read was PYGMALION. And in the second grade! I automatically adored the movie MY FAIR LADY when I saw it at age 5. I was always jumpning around and singing. I have had, and am continuing to have,a wonderful childhood.
