  • Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. I'd be playing myself...no one could do it better -- except Audrey Hepburn. I don't know if Audrey and I had anything in common, but if we did, it was certainly not the Holly in me. But I'd rather she play the role anyway, because she did me proud. She's the only one who can outshine me at being me! Plus, she epitomized the skinny brunette gamine as a timelessly chic style icon, combining the seemingly efortless elegance and -- above all -- CLASS -- sheer, ever-classic class -- dripping with GLAMOUR. Moreover, for it allows just enough room for a touch of free spirited creativity and the occasional surprise. What more could I ask for? Marilyn Monroe I adore, and relate to much, much more as a person (if my impressions are correct. which they ARE). But Audrey is my physical type, made it forever chic, epitom...

    • Appropriate for almost ANy occasion. They were super-flattering, and I had one in each of my favorite-and-most-flattering colors: ruby red, and royal purple. (Jewel-tones look best on me, and only the so-called "cool" hue of any given color looks good on me).
    • They were a bit-longish in the torso, meaning the bottom hem lay above the hips but below the waistline. This is a good thing because it achieves just the right proportions, since the neckline is rather low. It also elongates my waist-line, accen...
