Audrey Hepburn Style Icon

By Elma B.

Audrey Hepburn, whose mother was Dutch and father English-Austiran, was an actress and a humanitrian. She rose to fame during Hollywood's Golden Age after she starred in Hollywood classics like the Roman Holiday, Sabrina, The Nun's Story, Breakfast at Tiffany's, My Fair Lady, etc.

During her acting career she became a fashion icon and was placed on the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1961. Long after her death, her style has remained revered and considered classic. Hepburn's style and personality were very feminine and elegant.

Her style was created by Hubert de Givenchy; Givenchy started working with Hepburn during the film Sabrina in 1954. After their collaboration in Sabrina, the two became lifelong friends. Hepburn became his muse and her style was noticed internationally.  In fact, it was Givenchy who created her renowned looks at Breakfast at Tiffany's and subsequently created a perfume for Hepburn titled L'Interdit

"[Givenchy] gave me a look, a kind, a silhouette. He has always been the best and he stayed the best. Because he kept the spare style that I love. What is more beautiful than a simple sheath made an extraordinary way in a special fabric, and just two earrings?"-Audrey Hepburn. 

Another famous name that worked closely with Hepburn was Salvatore Ferragamo. He created a shoe for her and made her an ambassador of his famous brand. Ray-Ban Wayfarer also benefitted enormously after Hepburn wore their sunglasses in the film Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Hepburn's style was simple and clean cut with giant accessories, e.g. necklaces and sunglasses. Her dresses had an amazing shape and were made from quality fabric. For details on Hepburn's graceful style, see the photos below.
