Audrey Hepburn, was a tiny waif who embodied elegance and re-defined beauty and style for an era.  A former ballet student, she was frequently described as ‘gamine’ because of her slender, boyish figure and she portrayed doe-eyed innocence with a regal grace.   Hepburn became a muse for Givenchy, wearing many of his designs in various film roles, as well as in photo shoots and on the red carpet.  I have seen many of her films and she always seems impeccably stylish and lovely, even while portraying Maid Marian as a middle-aged nun 🙂  Actually, she played a nun in “A Nun’s Story” as well and is equally as lovely in that film.  Just, perhaps not as glamorous as in some of her other films.  I personally enjoy “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” for no reason other than her style (and the handsome George Peppard).  Also, if you haven’t seen “Roman Holiday“, you should, it’s very good, she plays a Princess on ‘holiday’ with fabulous clothes and jewelry and, as a bonus, it will give you a new appreciation for Gregory Peck!  For more great fashion, watch “Sabrina”.  If anyone could come close to emulating Hepburn’s style now, it has to be Natalie Portman, I think or perhaps Anne Hathaway.

This is one I’d never seen before – she looks more like a bombshell than an ingenue

You have to love this shot, I am sure that my best friend will!  Not only does she still look fantastically stylish about fifty years later, she’s got a little dog in her arms, too.  Eat your heart out Paris and co. – it’s all been done before and with a great deal more sophistication.  I don’t know about anyone else but I have never looked that good while travelling!
