This morning at Integrity Toys W Club breakfast time webinar
there was a grand unveiling of a brand new line of dolls tied to the movie classic, Breakfast at Tiffany's
. Suddenly the breakfast time event made sense (well breakfast for those of you in the east of the planet!).
Now BAT happen to be one of my favourite films, not least because of the devastating beauty and iconic performance by its leading lady, Audrey Hepburn
in her role as the kooky, gal about town, Holly Golightly
. The doll boasts a brand new sculpt and for the first time feet made just for kitten heels
à la Miss Hepburn in the original movie.
The webinar gave a fascinating insight into the way the collection was researched and put together and I for one am looking forward to its release. The dolls also boast a miriad of authentic accessories which were painfully researched and manufactured including the mask Hepburn wore for the 'five and dime' scene. The webinar also revealed that dress for the doll representing this scene was made as a result of a candid on set photo as it is hardly seen in the real movie. Now that's dedication to authenticity!
