Capote disapproved of many changes that were made to sanitise the story for the film adaptation, and would have preferred Marilyn Monroe to have been cast in the role, although he also stated that Hepburn did a terrific job. The character is considered one of the best-known in American cinema, and a defining role for Hepburn. The dress she wears during the opening credits is considered an icon of the twentieth century and perhaps the most famous little black dress of all time. Hepburn stated that the role was the jazziest of my career yet admitted:
I’m an introvert. Playing the extroverted girl was the hardest thing I ever did.
