Classic, chic, timeless, Audrey Hepburn, a true beauty inside and out will forever be an inspiration to myself and the fashion world. Her influential grace, simplicity and style are reflected everywhere in the fashion industry. Audrey not only inspired her countless fans, but she was and still is a muse to many designers. Audrey Hepburn became the style icon that she is today because of her simple, timeless looks that featured bold accessories including statement jewelry, hats, sunglasses, long gloves and pearls galore. The Audrey Hepburn look will never go out of style and she will always be an exceptional inspiration.
My friend Brittany did a modern day Audrey Hepburn inspired photography project. I played Audrey and these are the results along with some quotes by the one and only Audrey Hepburn herself…
“Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.”
“Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside but it doesn't help if you're ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up."
"Paris is always a good idea."
"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles."
The influences of Audrey Hepburn are seen everywhere in today's fashions.
This lace gown reminded me of a dress that is currently available in BP.
And this black dress could easily turn you into an Audrey for the night.
These sunglasses look quite similar to the popular must-have Ray-Bans of last summer…
Audrey's preppy look is definitely a current and constant trend. And patterned pants like these (florals in particular) are going to be big for spring!
Hats are a spring break must, so try accessorizing your beach look with one!
Audrey lived the life of a Givenchy Barbie. In her time, she was Hubert de Givenchy's muse and she was very frequently dressed in lovely head to toe Givenchy.
and more Givenchy...
Remember to take a look back in fashion history for inspiration, the past does have a way of repeating itself… Audrey Hepburn will never go out of style, so when in doubt, channel your inner Audrey, smile and think What Would Audrey Do.
