Hubert De Givenchy designed the key costumes for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany's, other items were provided by the Paramount wardrobe department, supervised by Edith Head. When the actual dress from this design was offered in Christie's New York in 2007, the Givenchy label was absent. It was suggested that perhaps this dress was designed at the last minute and may not have been a Givenchy creation. Actress Debi Mazar explains When Givenchy looked at Audrey Hepburn, he saw Audrey Hepburn. When Edith Head looked at Audrey Hepburn, she saw Holly Golightly.
The dress made for the film was offered for auction at Christie's New York, December 12th, 1990 lot 95.
