Hello October!!! I’m so excited that the Halloween month is FINALLY here! I have always thought Halloween was fun… However, after having kids, I really enjoy celebrating Halloween even more! Valentina and Alina (especially Valentina being an older sister), get SO excited about the Halloween costumes. Their excitement makes me want to start decorating our house and plan what our costumes will be from the end of September!
I thought I should share our last year’s “Mommy and Me” Iconic Audrey Hepburn- Breakfast at Tiffany’s Halloween Costumes. I got several messages and DMs on Instagram last year asking where I got our matching customs! This is why I decided to create a quick post and share where I got our costumes. If you are a big fan of Audrey Hepburn and “breakfast at Tiffany’s”, you can recreate something similar for your family this year!
The Story Behind That “Little Black Dress”
Worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s
I totally recommend reading this article in Vogue UK about the story behind that “little black dress” worn by Audrey Hepburn. That legendry satin dress was designed and custom tailored by Hubert de Givenchy for her! Givenchy described the dress as a “perfect example of 1960s style…” Chic at the front, sensual and Parisian in the back”. Beside her chic and timeless black satin dress, Audrey Hepburn was accessorized with Tiffany’s multiple rows of pearls necklace and a beautiful brooch in her hair!
My “little black dress” in these pictures is a velvet dress that I have owned for many years! In fact, my aunt bought it for me when I was 18 years old, and it has been hanging in my closet since then! It is one of those dresses that is very special to me, and I will never be able to let it go or “donate”! Hahaha! I thought it was a perfect look for the Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s” costume. Here is where you can buy something similar or just a beautiful “Little Black Dress”. You can always find something fun and not that pricey on Amazon, or you can get a designer little black dress if you wish!

The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Costume
The breakfast at Tiffany’s costume is a must-have for any fan of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s movie. I think this costume is perfect for someone who wants to look like a classic Hollywood starlet and it is SUPER easy to recreate! If you love Audrey Hepburn, it’s the perfect costume for you!!!
How to Create a Costume for Your Daughter Based on Audrey Hepburn’s Style
The key elements to consider when making this outfit are the black dress, pearl necklace and the red lipstick! That simple! While you can easily find that “little black dress” for your daughter/s, for some reason, I had a hard time finding the exact same black dress, in two different sizes for Valentina and Alina. I checked several kids online clothing stores, and I could not find what I was looking for! Therefore, when I found these cute black tutu costume with gloves on Amazon, I ordered them right away!
Here are some other choices for you to consider:
Ideas For Makeup & Hair Styles That Would Match Audrey Hepburn’s Look
I tried my best to create the exact hairstyle of Audrey Hepburn’s in the movie, but I was not able to! Hahaha! Since last year we were in the middle of pandemic, I did not want to go to any hair salons to create that “look”. So I decided to make a small little “Donut Bun” for myself and Valentina and put the “vintage” tiara hair pieces on our hair! You can also choose other headpieces, crowns and tiaras like this, this or this!
The makeup was super easy… I love this red lipstick by Mac. The shade is called “Dare You” (Cremesheen Lipstick). I applied some on myself and Valentina’s lips! You can also use Chanel Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue lipstick (the shade is called “Sweet Berry”). This shade is so beautiful and gives you the same look of the “Dare You” lipstick by Mac. I also applied my favorite blush by NARS. The shade is called “Torrid” on our faces! I did not apply any makeup on Alina’s face, since she was only 1.5 year old, and I did not want her to get any allergic reactions to the makeup!
Audrey Hepburn’s Long Black Satin Gloves
You can pretty much find the gloves at any party stores (like PartyCity). I bought ours on Amazon! Here are some great options for you:
Audrey Hepburn’s Pearl Necklace & Headpiece
Here are some cute Audrey Hepburn’s pearl necklace and head piece choices on Amazon…so you don’t need to look elsewhere!
If you are considering creating the Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s costume, I hope this post was helpful and gave you some ideas of where to buy the items you need to recreate this look! I hope you have a fun day celebrating Halloween!
