    My favorite iconic outfit is the pink genie outfit from “I Dream of Genie”. During my college days, I made myself one just like it to wear to a costume social.

    I would have to say that it is the little black dress Audrey Hepburn wore in the Movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s just gorgeous! And I finally have the body to where one just like it!

    I’ll have to vote for Audrey Hepburn in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S too. I loved those clothes! I may be slightly biased since (1) my husband took me to see it on our first date and (2) some of my relatives told me they thought of me when they saw the movie. I must add that, what reminded them of me was the scene when Audrey was cooking chicken with mole’ sauce- not that I did cook that dish at that period in my life but that it was the sort of thing I would be likely to cook.
