Wendy Williams goes full ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ for 55th birthday


Wendy Williams is celebrating her 55th birthday in style.

The talk show host went to breakfast at Tiffany’s Blue Box Café on Thursday wearing a black strapless ballgown, white sneakers and an enormous tiara on top of her short blond bob, clearly channeling Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly from the 1961 movie.

After indulging in a cake shaped like the jeweler’s iconic blue box, Williams took a trip to Louis Vuitton, where she thanked a mysterious “benefactor” with a huge wink and accepted a new pair of Louis Vuitton sneakers ($1,010) customized with Swarovski crystals. She continued on to more stores afterward, sharing photos and videos of her shopping spree as she went.

Ahead of her big day, Williams filmed her birthday show episode on Wednesday wearing a hot pink Pinko dress ($239) with the same white sneakers (likely due to her lymphedema diagnosis) and carried both a pink Goyard tote and a black crocodile Hermès Birkin bag. She also toted a small bag from famed caviar purveyor Petrossian — perhaps an early birthday present?

On the show, her staff surprised her with pink glitter decorations, dozens of balloons and a large birthday cake from Flour Shop. Andy Cohen was the episode’s guest, and the two discussed Williams’ tumultuous divorce from Kevin Hunter.

“Your husband [Kevin Hunter] was not my biggest fan. I’ve been cheering you on for the last six years,” said Cohen, 51, adding, “I’m so excited about Wendy in the city.”

Perhaps after she takes off her Holly Golightly outfit, she’ll slip into a Carrie Bradshaw-approved tutu.
