For many girls fantasizing about the city that never sleeps, there is no scene more iconic than Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, enjoying her simple breakfast of a French pastry and a street-cart coffee in front of Tiffany's window, as if to peer into an enchanted life she came to the city to achieve. In her little black dress from the night before, her hair tied up, her sunglasses, and her pearls, Hepburn completely embodied the mysterious and free-spirited drifter first introduced to us in Truman Capote's novella of the same name. Essentially, Golighty in this scene represents a truth about the exclusivity of upper-crust Manhattan, and the restless ambition to break into it that characterizes every dreamer who moves to the big city.-TA
