Natalie Portman is glowing on the cover of the upcoming issue of Harper's Bazaar. The very lucky girl got to wear the same dress Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Natalie is often compared to Audrey, so it's really a perfect fit for the cover, and Natalie loved the time she spent in the icon's dress. Here's more:
“I did feel very elegant suddenly,” Portman tells the magazine. “I mean, you can’t possibly measure up to Audrey Hepburn; there’s no comparison. But the elegance that she exuded was transmitted to the dress, you know, the feeling, the emotion of it.”
The dress, one of three versions made for the 1961 movie, will be sold to the highest bidder on Dec. 5 at Christie’s auction house in London. It’s expected to fetch as much as $130,000.
“I was so nervous that I wasn’t going to fit,” Portman says. “Everyone kept telling me how small it was, and I’m not the type who can starve myself. I’m small, but it’s not like I’m see-through.”
