Hepburn "Tiffany" Dress Could Be Yours

10/9/2006 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Few garments in film history are as iconic as the black Givenchy gown that Audrey Hepburn wore to such heartbreaking effect in the opening scenes of 1961's "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

And Natalie Portman is one of very few stars of the present day who could hope to emulate Hepburn's signature sylph-like elegance. In a rather daring feat of mimicry, Portman dons that very dress -- along with an appropriate pearl choker and a dazzling smile -- on the cover of the November Harper's Bazaar, which hits newsstands on October 20th.

Portman, for her part, doesn't claim to be the immaculate beauty that Hepburn was, but the dress certainly helped channel some of Audrey's effortless glamour. "I did feel very elegant suddenly," says Portman. "I mean, you can't possibly measure up to Audrey Hepburn; there's no comparison."

For the right bid, you too can channel Audrey Hepburn as well: The dress, one of only three made for the film, will be auctioned off at Christie's in London on December 5th. Proceeds from the auction will go to the City of Joy Aid charity, which provides aid to the impoverished in India.

Finally!!!

We see a confident, intelligent, gorgeous woman that is a real roll model and sex symbol without having to whore herself out.

We get a break from the desperate Christina, Nicole, Paris, Fergie, Madonna, Britney, Tera, and Pamela.

Natalie is perfection.

Hello,
Just came to this site delievery of AOL. Audrey Hepburn has always been someone I've been told I look like. Even now at 60. I feel flattered and honnored that I still hear that, especially when my hair is up in a French Twist. As a younger woman I had about a 21 to 22 inch waist. Now it is about 25. I keep dancing and walking. I also loved Audrey's mind as she got older and more mature. I just felt complelled to write this. Thank you for letting me.

I knew some loser would say something like that DeLayne. Read the article...the girl is totally humble about not comparing to her. Why do you have to hate?

I agree with Nick...it's nice to see someone with talent and class on TMZ rather than the usual suspects.

According to my 21-year-old son, Natalie Portman is "the most beautiful creature that ever walked this earth." After seeing her channeling MY vote for most beautiful woman of all-time, Audrey Hepburn, I'm inclined to understand his admiration: Natalie looks absolutely, stunningly, classicly, beautiful.

Natural beuaty! No plastic this and that........She is a class act. Oh, and #2, Jessica Simpson could hire Natalie's stylist and her manager, - NOTHING would help that no-talent skank.

I can't describe in words how amazing she is. A True Woman: natural, beautiful, sexy, funny, smart, talented & down-to-earth. No wonder so many people admire her. No other woman in the world can compare to Natalie. Period.

She is an extremely beautiful woman! She is gorgeous on the inside and out, that's what makes her amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! Ms. Portman hasn't changed one bit on her journey to the top, she has stayed grounded and that alone makes her special.
