10 of the World’s Most Recognisable Dresses of this Century

4. Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast At Tiffany’s Dress

Hepburn, in the film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, is seen gilding over the pavement in the long black dress towards the Tiffany’s with a pack of pastry and coffee in her hand. While she remains glued to the storefront window, nibbling at her breakfast, admiring the jewellery inside, the world audience remained glued to the image of the woman, in the century’s most famous ‘little black dress’ strolling down the deserted Fifth Avenue in New York City. Arguably history’s most iconic items of clothing, the Hubert de Givenchy design featured on the 1961 Breakfast at Tiffany’s film posters worldwide.
