We've seen plenty of adorable, pink-drenched little girls' birthday parties in our day, but this Breakfast at Tiffany's-inspired party for 1-year-old Riley manages to be both girlie and chic, much like style icon Audrey Hepburn herself. "I wanted something that was ultimately fun and glamorous, and nothing was better than Breakfast at Tiffany's!" says Riley's mom, Cassidy Freitas. "Also, the theme would combine two of my all-time favorite things: diamonds and breakfast. I felt the theme had been done before, and I wanted to change it up and make it a little more youthful, so we went with the color scheme of mint, peach, and silver instead of the traditional Tiffany blue." A stylish DIY photo booth, a yummy breakfast buffet, and one scrumptious birthday girl dressed as Holly Golightly add to the appeal of this simply stunning party, beautifully captured by Susan Yee of En Point Photography.

Today is the 50th anniversary of Audrey Hepburn's iconic Breakfast at Tiffany's film release. And with the classic movie's combination of romance, fun, and glamour, it makes for perfect wedding inspiration. It's one thing to use Breakfast at Tiffany's for your engagement shoot theme, but now see how you can incorporate everything from the fashion to the best movie moments into your big day!
When you're just not sure what to dress up as for Halloween, you can always rely on a popular classic: Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's. Today just happens to mark the 50th year anniversary of the flick, as well, making it even more of a special choice for 2011. And luckily, channeling Audrey Hepburn in her role as the eccentric-yet-misguided society girl is easy.
- For the makeup: It's all about creating a peaches-and-cream glow with creamy, warm pink cheeks and lips. Pair with black eyeliner and curl-enhancing mascara, along with a touch of champagne (what else?) shadow on the lids. Finish with well-groomed brows and false lashes as needed.
- For the hair: If a tiara is hard to come by (or a tad pricey for your Halloween costume budget), go with an oversized rhinestone barrette instead, like this flower hair clip ($4) from Charlotte Russe. Of course, your look won't be complete without your hair styled in a French twist and baby bangs — cheat the style here with this Holly Golightly wig ($15).
- For your ensemble: Don a slinky black halter gown, long formal gloves, rhinestone earrings, and a multiple-strand faux pearl necklace, and you have yourself an iconic getup if there ever was one.
Poised and elegant, Audrey Hepburns's beauty regimen was actually quite unfussy. Audrey, who would have turned 82 this week, was known to use Estée Lauder products, and her signature look featured bold brows, separated lashes, and neutral-toned makeup. So celebrate Audrey's birthday in style by checking out a few of her favorite beauty products:
- Safety pins: To create her signature doe-eyed look, her makeup artist, Alberto de Rossi, painstakingly separated each of her mascaraed lashes with a safety pin.
- A once-private fragrance: Creed's Spring Flower ($130—$350) was originally made in 1951 specifically for Audrey Hepburn. A fruity floral, the scent became available to the public in 1996 and features notes of peach, melon, and apple at the top, rose and jasmine in the middle, and ambergris and musk at the base.
- Her signature scent: Givenchy L'Interdit Eau de Toilette Spray ($84) was created in 1957 by Hubert de Givenchy for his muse Audrey Hepburn. It was released to the mainstream in the '60s, and is now formulated with Bulgarian rose, jasmine, pink pepper, orris, and tonka bean.
- Go-to soap: Erno Laszlo Organic Sea Mud Soap ($40), which is 97 percent natural, was an Audrey favorite.
- Styling product: After meeting Audrey in 1974, stylist Philip Kingsley wanted to create something that would help keep her overly styled hair looking great, and that's how Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Pre-Shampoo Treatment ($45) was born. She was such a fan, it's said she had tubs of it shipped to her regularly.
Is there a woman in the world who doesn't love stripes? If so, we'd like to meet her. They've been spotted on everyone from Audrey Hepburn and Jean Seberg to current stars like Michelle Williams and Nicky Hilton. Stripes add bold, sporty, and crisp appeal to any outfit, look fabulous with everything from a sequin skirt to jeans and sandals, and they don't have to be an investment — unless you're lusting after Jil Sander's Spring collection like we are. We found a bounty of crisp, classic striped pieces, from dresses to tops, all under $100. Just click our widget to shop.
Some stars' past Academy Award beauty looks weren't the best we've ever seen, but a peek back into the red carpet vault proves that there were many who got it right. Sure, poodle perms, frosted shadows, and brick red lipstick might look strange or dated to us now, but they at one point constituted what was hot at the time. Here are 40 stars who stood out with their memorable makeup and hairstyles at the Oscars (and Governors Ball) from way back when.
With only eight days to go until New Year's Eve, I thought it fitting to pay homage to the quintessential party girl and ladylike legend, Holly Golightly. The iconic image of Miss G enjoying coffee and a croissant while gazing into Tiffany's is permanently ingrained in my head. Holly was the ultimate glamorous girl-about-town, and she always dressed the part. Get her glam look with a long black sheath dress ($80), shiny kitten heels, and elbow-length gloves. Make the look modern with a crystal headband and sequin clutch — and don't forget the pearls.
