Breakfast at Tiffany's Style Analysis: The Reinvention of Oneself With Fashion


Breakfast at Tiffany's Style Analysis: The Reinvention of Oneself With Fashion

In this video, I’ll be analyzing the style of the character Holly Golightly who is portrayed by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I’ll be exploring the concepts of femininity, stability vs desire, and the pursuit of self-actualization using Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

I’ll also be covering the work of costume designer Edith Head and Hubert de Givenchy’s fashion that is featured in the film as well as the partnership the designer had with Audrey Hepburn.

Through this, we can breakdown the refined elegance of Holly Golightly’s do-as-she-pleases and party girl chic style to understand the deeper, complex reasoning behind her reinvention that hinders true her freedom.
