Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany's Barbie doll

In honor of her 80th birthday (Hepburn was born on May 4, 1929), Paramount Home Entertainment's Centennial Collection released two classic Audrey Hepburn movies on January 13, 2009: Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany's.
"Audrey Kathleen Ruston, "Audrey Hepburn," was a British actress, humanitarian and Academy Award winner.
Hepburn spent her childhood chiefly in the Netherlands, including German-occupied Arnhem, Netherlands, during the Second World War (1939-1945).
Hepburn studied ballet and drama in Amsterdam and dance in London in 1948. She worked part-time as a fashion model. And somewhere during her training of the fine arts, she also learned to be a dental assistant!
She appeared in a handful of European films before starring in the 1951 Broadway play Gigi. Her first starring role was with Gregory Peck in the Italian-set Roman Holiday (1952), and her screen test for Holiday was used in the promotional trailer for the film.
Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) proved to be a hit, and another film not originally thought to have Audrey cast as the lead."(

It's not the first time a tribute was made. In 1998, Mattel paid tribute to Audrey Hepburn's grace and beauty by releasing a stunning likeness of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in a series of dolls and fashions commemorating Hepburn's timeless role in the 1961 Paramount Pictures film Breakfast at Tiffany's.

In her Breakfast at Tiffany's ensemble, the Audrey Hepburn Barbie appears as Holly Golightly in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany's wearing a long, sleeveless black gown with a white stole. Her accessories include black opera gloves, triple-strand faux pearl necklace, rhinestone tiara, coffee cup and black handbag. The face sculpting and upswept brunette hairstyle bear a remarkable likeness to Audrey Hepburn in the role of Holly Golightly.

Another version of the Audrey Hepburn doll wears a sparkling pink cocktail dress with matching pink swing coat, clutch, and tiara. Holly Golightly outfits include the Black Daytime Ensemble clothing set and the Cat Mask outfit.
