Style Icon: Audrey Hepburn

via





Audrey Hepburn is undeniably one of the most stylish, elegant, beautiful women of all time. Her grace and poise are unmatched in current day and she will forever be one of my most cherished fashion icons. She was the queen of little black dresses, ballet flats, slim trousers, pearls, white button down blouses, and huge sunglasses. Anytime I "can't find anything to wear", I remember her style and dress myself in something simple, feminine, and classic (either an LBD or skinny jeans, a black knit top or white button down, and ballet flats). The best part about emulating Audrey's style is that most of us already own all the essential items. What style icon do you embody when in a wardrobe rut?

Audrey Hepburn is a great choice. She was also a great philanthropist in addition to her great movies and classic style.

I believe that Audrey Hepburn was one of the most gorgeous women that has ever lived. Her elegance will laways be remembered. And of course her style. :)

Audrey Hepburn has always been my favorite style icon. She will forever be stylish, no matter the trends or styles that come and go!

I have almost all her movies, and love watching them when I'm feeling down or need some inspiration! She was never over the top, just pure classy and lady like! Love her!

I am with you on Audrey. She takes the cake!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I so agree with you. She's absolutely timeless and my wardrobe relects her style quite a bit. You really can't go wrong when trying to emulate her.

Happy Wednesday :)

She is my favourite! She's so famous that I just "knew" her without knowing anything... and when I found out that she was an actress, that changed (=raised) my opinion of actresses in general, that's how "powerful" her influence was over me. She is truly wonderful. Shame she doesn't have any beautiful daughters.

Josie said...

She is easily one of my top style icons as well. Always so elegant and chic, and she absolutely embodies the idea of ladylike. Beautiful. Others who I refer to are Rachel Bilson, Katherine Hepburn, and Reese Witherspoon.

Oh she is at the top of my list too. How can you not just adore her? Not mention she stars in one of my favorite films, Breakfast at Tiffanys

ModernMom said...

She really was ahead of her time!

Oh Valerie! She really is one of the greats. Just scanning through these photos is a breath of fresh air. Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O are two of my faves. Whenever I'm in a slump, they can easily inspire me to simple beauty! Great post!

Annie said...

Agreed :) She's so classic. Funny - I was just in Barnes & Noble a few minutes ago and saw a journal with her on the front! xo

Erica said...

She's definitely one of my favorites. What made her even more beautiful was her kindness ; )

Krystal said...
