Breakfast at Beyonce's! Singer channels Audrey Hepburn in a little black dress and a $30M diamond for Tiffany campaign with Jay-Z

The singer, 39, emulated Audrey's famous Holly Golightly character in the Sixties romcom Breakfast at Tiffany's as she slipped into a little black dress while posing alongside her husband. In the shoot Beyonce also modelled the famed 128.54 carat Tiffany Diamond, making her the fifth female to ever wear the gem, and marking the first time it has been featured in a campaign.  

Beyonce wowed in a figure hugging black gown with cheeky sheer panels and a pair of mesh elbow gloves.  The Ivy Park founder wore her hair styled in an elegant updo with soft tendrils around her face and she stared into the camera stoically with her hands at her hips. Her husband Jay-Z looked dapper in a suit as he gazed at his wife of 13 years.

The campaign the couple told our American Correspondence that: 'Love is the diamond that the jewelry and art decorate.' 

Perhaps most striking part of the shoot was the famed 128.54 carat Tiffany Diamond Beyonce wore around her neck and later switched to her back as she cuddled up to Jay-Z.  The massive yellow diamond was originally unearthed in South Africa in 1877 and had previously only been worn by four women: Mary Whitehouse, Audrey Hepburn, Lady Gaga and Gal Gadot. 

The Tiffany Diamond: The massive gemstone was first unearthed in South Africa in 1877 and was first reset in necklace form to mark Tiffany’s 175th anniversary celebration in 2012 The gem is said to be worth $30 million, according to estimates from Tiffany & Co. 

Whitehouse was the first to wear the gemstone after it was set in necklace form at the 1957 Tiffany Feather Ball in Rhode Island, and Hepburn later donned the gem in promotional images for Breakfast At Tiffany's.  Gaga dazzled in the diamond as she wore it to the 2019 Academy Awards, and most recently Gadot wore the necklace for the upcoming 2022 film Death On The Nile. 

It was first reset in necklace form in 2012 to mark the 175th anniversary of Tiffany & Co. Despite a handful of iconic starlets having tried the diamond on for size, Beyonce and Jay-Z's shoot marks the first time the diamond was featured in a campaign.  And as an extra promotional push for the yearlong partnership, the company will release a short film that depicts Beyonce singing Moon River to her husband.
