Was there ever a real Holly Golightly? Apparently, yes. American Dorian Leigh Parker started modelling in the 1940s at the late age of 27 but, with a face that was classically-boned, eyes of hypnotic blue and an air of feminine mystery, she quickly became the most famous model in the world.
During her long life of more than eight decades, Dorian Leigh (who dropped her surname when she first started modelling) had several husbands and a legion of A-list affairs. Truman Capote became fascinated with her, and was a frequent visitor to her New York apartment.
He learned to gain entry through the fire escape, and she would come home to find him playing with her cats. Capote coined a nickname for her, "Happygo- lucky", and inside his head a character began to form – a woman with a more than liberal take on the rules of life.
