Julie's Favorite 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' Moment
The Audrey Hepburn classic Breakfast at Tiffany's celebrates its 50th anniversary with a debut on Blu-ray this week, and we were with Julie Andrews on the blue carpet to capture her favorite moment of the Blake Edwards film.
"It's sort of a Cinderella story with a twist," said Andrews at the Manhattan premiere on the final day of New York Fashion Week. "One of the favorite moments is that iconic opening shot, which is so beautiful. There's a wonderful close-up of Audrey when she says, 'How do I look?' and it's just divine."
Andrews was married to the late Blake Edwards, and she called the iconic film "a turning point in his career."
Based on Truman Capote's best-selling novella, Breakfast at Tiffany's follows the urban adventures of Holly Golightly (Hepburn) as she looks for love in New York -- preferably with a millionaire. Enter George Peppard, a struggling young writer who finds himself swept up into Holly's happy-go-lucky lifestyle. Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam and Mickey Rooney also star.
