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.”
