The Story of Holly Golightly

The name of Holly Golightly may seem unfamiliar to some people but the title “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is by all means familiar to everyone. And of course everyone has seen the famous photo of Audrey Hepburn with a thin cigarette in a long holder.

Truman Capote is supposed to use the image of Marilyn Monroe as a prototype for the main character of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Actually it is hard to imagine a more suitable part for fair-curled angel Marilyn Monroe but she suddenly refused to shoot in the film.

But when this obedience is blind it may lead to curious results and the fashion turns from the severe dictator into ridiculous scarecrow. Look through the top list of the most strange and foolish fashion trends and think carefully before following any new tendency.

Fashion was ridiculous throughout the history. Let’s take, fro example, the popularity of wearing animal wraps. Women used to wear the whole animal carcass around their necks with everything still intact and it looked, to put it mildly, a bit weird.

Another trend which you will hardly want to follow appeared in 1990s with the help of Kris Kross, a popular hip-hop duo of that time. They inspired the whole generation to wear their cloths backwards. You can guess that it was highly impractical, useless and not as attractive as it seemed to the creators of this style.
