It was one of the most daring dresses of the night, but Jenner revealed there was an unlikely inspiration

The reality TV star posted a photo of Audrey Hepburn in her iconic “My Fair Lady” gown to her Instagram story on Monday night, as well as a clip of Hepburn from the film. 

Jenner’s glittering dress featured a diamond choker that was similar to the one Hepburn wore in the classic 1964 film. But she swapped Hepburn’s long white opera gloves with a sheer version, and went with a simple bun instead of Hepburn’s big updo. 

Zoë Kravitz also bared it all in a stunning Saint Laurent dress.
