Proving that a beautiful outfit really is timeless, the simple black dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s has been named the greatest female screen outfit of all time in a recent survey.

The Givenchy designed gown has become the iconic example of easy elegance.  Accessorised with pearls and elbow length black gloves this classic LBD is the gold standard for a lot of fashion buffs including yours truly.  Hepburn’s own natural style and grace brought it to life, while her quirky upbeat sense of humor made it relatable.

The survey was sponsored by the UK based DVD rental group Lovefilm.
