The style and panache of Audrey Hepburn was made eternal by this movie. The classic, urbane romantic comedy is the story of a young woman in World War II-era New York who hobnobs with famous people, gets into a lot of trouble, and breaks many ruleS. She made this character one of the most iconic characters that ever appeared on screen.
She wears amazingly beautiful and elegant clothes which lingered on people’s memory for long so much so that her extremely famous little black dress which was designed by Hubert de Givenchy was auctioned off for over over $900000 in 2006.
