Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany's Halloween Costume

I've gotten many "Help! I want to do Audrey for Halloween" queries in the past few months, so here goes. By far the easiest option is buying this:

$50.99 Amazon.
Includes dress, hat, gloves.
Roughly a women's size 6/8.

Obviously, that's "costume quality", meaning not great. If you want to piecemeal it, here are some suggestions:

$39.99 Crystal Crown Barrette. Amazon.
$44.99 Black Retro Sheath Dress. La Redoute.
$24.99 Black Hat. Amazon.
$3.99 Cigarette Holder. Amazon.
$12.00 Oversized Sunglasses. Amazon.
$29.99 Simulated Pearl Necklace. ShopNBC
$13.95 Black Opera Gloves. Amazon.
$12.50 Black 15" Gloves. Amazon.

Oscar de la Renta knows his Old Hollywood movies — how perfect is this little dress?

$149 O Oscar Dress, Macy'sicon

Also as "Anonymous" pointed out:

$89.99 Isaac Mizrahi for Target, Amazon

For hair, I would recommend taking a picture to the hairdresser — this high chignon is not easy to get right, plus you need either long hair or an additional hair piece if your hair is short.

For makeup, see my Audrey Hepburn Makeup: Step by Step Guide.

Just remember to have fun and don't take too much stress over perfection :)
