Paula Cooperman of Mill Crest Vintage shares with us today her vision for the fashion showcased in our Noshing at Tiffany’s styled shoot. As a leading boutique and stylist in the vintage clothing industry, Mill Crest Vintage provided handfuls of options for our beautiful models, Runya and Yana, to wear based on the inspired era and film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We were so lucky to be able to play dress-up with such beautiful dresses and accessories! It is truly every girl’s dream! I personally enjoyed examining the vintage dresses and imagining the stories behind them, as they are both original pieces. What fun!
The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Style
The legendary classic style of the wardrobe in Breakfast at Tiffany’s still influences fashion half a century later. Not only did it secure Audrey Hepburn as a style icon, it also made several chic items as famous as the movie itself.
For the bride, we chose this amazing 1950s Alfred Angelo lace vintage wedding dress for its classic lines and whimsical style. The tea length vintage wedding dress is done in a soft white floral lace-adorned net over two layers of tulle and a magnificent silk satin lining.
The sheer lace bodice features a scooped neckline in the lace, which is trimmed in pearls. The silk satin lining, which shows through the lace, offers a sweetheart neckline. Thirty self-covered buttons groom the back and six self covered buttons detail the long sheer sleeves. The full, gathered skirt, which is lined in silk satin and two layers of tulle, falls from just below the natural waist and features a beautiful lace floral design in the sheer net overlay. Paired with a chic crown style headpiece with attached veil, the look is timeless and classic.
Audrey Hepburn wore a fabulous little black cocktail dress that is now often referred to as “the definitive LBD.” We chose this fabulous authentic 1950s little black vintage dress, which was designed in the pique of the fashion’s era.
The dress is done in a silk linen blend for our beautiful bridesmaid. The bodice features a banded V-cut neckline and sweet capped sleeves. The skirt, which falls from the cinched waist, finishes just below the knee. We paired it with a petticoat to show fullness. Accessorized with a simple chic velvet headpiece, over-sized black sunglasses, iconic vintage pearl necklace and black gloves, we were able to capture the iconic style of Holly Golightly with ease.
Both dresses are currently available at Mill Crest Vintage and personalized bridal consultations are available by appointment.
