Audrey Hepburn, as Holly Golightly, holds a cup and a paper bag while looking into one of the window displays at Tiffany's in a still from the film, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'. She wears sunglasses, a little black dress, long gloves and a tiara in her chignon.

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the classic film "Breakfast at Tiffany's." It is hard to believe that the film has been around for half a century. It still feels contemporary and modern, largely due to how ingrained it has become in our culture. The film continues to be regularly referenced, and can be credited with setting the standard for the "little black dress." The dress worn by Audrey Hepburn was designed by Givenchy and sold at auction for $923,187 in 2006.
