I finally got to see Breakfast at Tiffany’s for the first time a few days ago. I always loved Audrey Hepburn’s timeless and classy style; she’s a true beauty and one of my favourite ladies to look up to. I remember always wanting to see this movie, but for one reason or another I never had the chance to watch it until the other night when I was scrolling down the tv program menu and found it. You can just imagine how happy I was!
So I sat comfortably on the couch and prepared myself to finally enjoy the movie while sipping a nice cup of green tea.
While watching the movie I thought that Audrey Hepburn’s character, Holly, had been portrayed as a very superficial person, absolutely detached from reality, but by the end of the movie I had a completely different opinion of the girl, all she wanted was to find some happiness and meaning to her life, something that could give her the same excitement and assurance that she felt when she admired the beautiful jewellery displayed in front of the Tiffany windows. I think we are all in search of happiness and we can find it only when we stop looking desperately for it.
I remember when a couple of years ago a few friends of mine and I were planning on going to New York for a few days during the Christmas holidays and jokingly (honestly I wasn’t entirely kidding..) I told them that I wanted to go eat a croissant and sip a cup of coffee in front of Tiffany’s just like Audrey Hepburn had done in the movie and one of my friends said I should switch the croissant to a bagel instead to make it more personal. I actually liked the idea and even though we never did get to go on our trip, when I will go, that’s one of the first things I plan on doing: visiting Tiffany’s and eating a croissant/bagel while admiring the jewellery store of almost every girl’s dreams.
