Breakfast at Tiffany’s Not-So-Happy Story

Ever since I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s one month ago I can't forget this fashion show for Givenchy, who designed Audrey Hepburn's costumes.  He was the first high fashion designer to break into film. I understand why this movie appeals to so many generations of girls. Myself, I preferred to watch Roman Holiday, a fantasy story of a princess who escapes from her life for a day - escape from responsibility and societal expectations. Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s is more down to earth, a wanna-be socialite who is trying to move ahead in life. While escaping from her past, ignoring lack of founds, she aspires to becoming one of the fabulous New York ladies. In fact, Holly is a high class escort, if not a call girl. I understand her aspirations, but I'm far from understanding the way that she chose to fulfil them.  The fact is the fabulous Audrey Hepburn represents the ideal of young women -  beautiful, feminine, and fun loving.
