Selfies At Tiffany's
PJ O'Rourke's reimagined design Selfies At Tiffany's takes the iconic image of Audrey Hepburn from her role in Breakfast at Tiffany's and gives it a modern, satirical twist. This timeless image of Audrey, with her elegant presence and the classic cigarette holder, has been an enduring symbol of sophistication and style, cherished by people all over the world. Many have it adorning their walls and recognize it instantly.
In his unique approach to this beloved image, O'Roruke replaces the cigarette with a selfie stick and a cell phone, introducing a clever commentary on contemporary culture. This reinterpretation is reminiscent of the work of Banksy, who often takes well-known images and adds a subversive element to create a fresh perspective.
Audrey Hepburn holds the selfie stick with a sense of grace, yet the modern accessory highlights the notion of modern vanity and superficiality, which is ironic, given Audrey's well-documented character as a down-to-earth and compassionate individual. The juxtaposition of the classic elegance of Audrey and the contemporary tools of self-representation underscores the changes in society's values and how we present ourselves in the digital age.
PJ O'Roruke's design is not just an ironic commentary on society's obsession with self-image but also a heartfelt tribute to Audrey Hepburn. As an admirer of her work and her charitable contributions, O'Roruke seeks to keep her legacy alive. Audrey was not only a fashion icon but also a beautiful soul who made a significant impact on the world. By modernizing this classic image, O'Roruke pays homage to Audrey and highlights the enduring influence she had on fashion and culture. This design serves as a reminder of the timeless charm and timeless relevance of Audrey Hepburn, ensuring her iconic image remains as captivating as ever.
