All that Sparkles, Shines

Image

Its coming to that time of the year again – Christmas – where bright colours mix with gorgeous sequins and glitter. The newest collections are full of bright dresses with matching jewels or  pastel colours with big  chunky jewels.

   

Miley Cyrus has become a massive example of this new trend. The ‘ We Can’t Stop’ star has glorified the  trend by wearing full sequin dresses to nude bedazzled dresses. If you want to look good in glitter use Miley Cyrus as inspiration. Glitter gives a fun and interesting look to a simple and plain dress. Just adding glitter accessories such as shoes can add a chic and glamorous feel to the outfit. Some of the nicest dresses tend to be the most expensive but for those with a budget only for the high street, there are many old alternatives.

Audrey Hepburn

File:Audrey Hepburn esmorza al Tiffany's.bmp.jpg

A style icon. An actress. An inspirational woman. A humanitarian. This list could go on and on. Of course I am talking about than none other Miss Audrey Hepburn. Known for playing the part of  ‘Holly Golightly’ in Academy Award winning ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

Probably the most famous thing she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is the stunning Little Black Dress (LBD).

       

This is my most favourite dresses in the whole world. It shows a feminine, confident and strong woman. I love how elegant Audrey Hepburn looks in this dress, it just oozes out the 1960s. As most of you people know is that I love vintage.

When the Dress Was Designed & When it Was Sold

Audrey Hepburn was a close friend of French designer Givenchy. In 1961, Givenchy designed a little black dress for the opening scene of  Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The original hand-stitched dress is currently in Givenchy’s private archive, whilst one copy Audrey took back to Paramount is on display at The Museum of Film in Madrid and the other was auctioned at Christie’s in December 2006. In November 2006, Natalie Portman appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, wearing one of the original Givenchy dresses created for Breakfast at Tiffany’s. On 5 December 2006, this dress was auctioned at Christie’s in London and purchased by an anonymous buyer by telephone. The sale price was estimated by the auction house to have ended somewhere between £50,000 and £70,000, but the final price was £467,200.  The money raised in the auction of the black dress ended in helping the poor people of Calcutta to build a school.

If I’m honest, I have to tell you that I still read fairy tales and i like them best of all. – Audrey Hepburn
