In the fateful last episode of season one of Big Little Lies, Zoë Kravitz’s Bonnie attends the fundraiser dressed as Audrey Hepburn’s Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady. Sheathed in lace, diamonds and long white gloves, the diminutive actress sings into an old microphone like the penniless flower seller in the 1964 classic. And at today’s Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA, Kravitz had another Audrey Hepburn moment.
Recalling the timeless glamour of Hepburn, Zoë Kravitz arrived on the SAG red carpet in a peach strapless column dress by Oscar de la Renta. Sitting a little higher on the décolletage with a simple square neck, the powdery orange gown was beautifully classic and unadorned – bar a quaint bow which cinched the waist with the seamless savoir faire of haute couture.
But it was the accompanying accoutrements that truly evoked a 1961 Audrey Hepburn, her long white opera gloves redolent of a glove-wearing Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s – both dramatic and spectacular.
With her slicked-back pixie and smattering of tattoos, Zoë Kravitz was the modern take on a classic.
