Or a series of them, really. The Canadian actor, who first set female hearts atwitter in 2004’s The Notebook, reached bonafide leading-man status in 2011 thanks to a triple threat of flicks: Crazy, Stupid, Love; Drive; and The Ides of March. Here’s a look back at the changing face of Gosling’s career.
Audrey Hepburn is remembered for her impeccable style — those little black dresses, the long gloves, the chic silhouettes she made iconic as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
That classic look was the vision of French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, who not only helped dress Hepburn for her most memorable film roles but also created many of the items in her personal wardrobe. As Breakfast at Tiffany’s turns 50 (it was released on October 5, 1961), see Givenchy’s stunning work through the years, plus photos from his lifelong friendship with Hepburn.
Audrey and George Peppard — In one of her most beloved movies, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Hepburn plays a party girl who befriends her writer neighbor. Naturally, by the end of the movie, they’re in love.
“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You’re chicken, you’ve got no guts. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, “Okay, life’s a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.” You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”
Happy 50th, Breakfast at Tiffanys. (see more photos here)
Boy With Balloons, India Photograph by Kamala Kannan, My Shot By photographing the shadow of the child running with balloons rather than the actual child, the photographer captured an image that immediately stops us in our tracks. Though the shadow is flat, it has so much movement and life. What is most surprising is how vibrant the colors are, and this is because the background is white/off-white.
