Natalie Portman Wears Audrey Hepburn's Dress

Natalie Portman Wears Audrey Hepburn's Dress

Natalie Portman wears the iconic black column dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1961′s Breakfast at Tiffany’s for the “Secrets of Stylish Women” November 2006 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands Oct. 20. Bigger picture in the gallery!

Natalie (often called the modern-day Hepburn) channels Holly Golightly by showing off the back of the dress, which was designed by Givenchy. Pearls are draped around her neck. Her hair, set with a black headband, is swept up into a stylish updo in an update of Golightly’s signature beehive.

Natalie, 25, on wearing Audrey Hepburn‘s dress: “I did feel very elegant suddenly. I mean, you can’t possibly measure up to Audrey Hepburn; there’s no comparison. But the elegance that she exuded was transmitted to the dress, you know, the feeling, the emotion of it… I was so nervous that I wasn’t going to fit. Everyone kept telling me how small it was, and I’m not the type who can starve myself. I’m small, but it’s not like I’m see-through.”

  • Alicia

    good picture but she is prettier than that, the cover could have been more beautiful, and Audrey Hepburn was a size two, so i don’t know what she was worried about

  • Amy

    NATALIE is amazing. The script for the Other Boleyn girl was amazing too.

  • moonbeams

    I adore Natalie. And I think Audrey Hepburn must be smiling down well pleased. Natalie’s got it all: She’s truly beautiful; she’s got class; she’s smart; she’s politically aware; she’s a humanitarian; she’s a talented and compelling actress. Now if only she and Jake were in the same city at the same time, …

    I absolutely love Natalie Portman. She and Emmy Rossum are my
    favourites for stylish, pretty, classy, smart and sophisticated young

  • Amy

    Natalie probably worried because she’s actually more of a 3, 3/4 depending on the garment. She’s my height and build. She’s not a 2.

    Audrey also had an eating disorder from how she grew up during WWII, etc. She was slightly tinier than Natalie.

    I love that classic Givenchy dress Audrey Hepburn worn for one of my favorite movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Natalie Portman is a beautiful actress and she does channels Holly Golightly on that cover of Harper’s Bazaar. Is that the dress to be auction off?

  • vika

  • Andreia

    It’s cool but i think she could look more natural!!!! it’s kinda plastic….no one can imitate Audrey!!!! she’s so unique!!

  • tongt0ng

  • jennifer

    wow….she looks fantastic. great character and actrees = natalie

  • Rachelme

    I think Natalie looks pretty, not beautiful. Granted Natalie is only 25, and when Audrey wore this dress she was already 30 and already had a baby. Audrey’s age and motherhood add ups to the aura an elegance she had at that time, that Natalie couldn’t because she is still a young girl.

    Nevertheless, Natalie looks pretty

  • Sarine

    I love this picture! At first I thought I was seeing double.. haha.

  • Halcyon

    There is no one better to honor Audrey than Natalie. Both breath-takingly beautiful, kind and intelligent, and iconic actresses of their age. I can not wait to get this magazine.
