I want to start by doing a weekly post on one of my style icons! For the very first post, I thought that I would have to start off with the legendary Audrey Hepburn. I often find myself looking into the past for inspiration as I am a big fan of anything vintage or retro looking.
Audrey Hepburn was born in Belgium in 1926, but soon traveled to England to study in London. She then returned to the Netherlands during the war and fell ill with malnutrition and depression. After that she ventured to London again to ballet school and began to model. It wasn't long before she found a career in film and moved to America. Such a jet-setter!
She appeared in many films during the 1950s and 60s such as Roman Holiday (1953), Love in the Afternoon (1957) and my favourite, Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961). She decided to retire from Hollywood at the end of the 60s and worked for UNICEF.
She's a style icon to me because of the little black dress by Givenchy which she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's which is now one of the most famous dresses of all time. Her wardrobe was full with lots of fashion staples such as breton tops and pencil dresses and skirts. She always would be confident in the clothes she wore, even if they were men's clothing! Not only were her clothes stylish, but her short haircut showed off her big eyes which she enhanced with eyeliner and mascara. She could always give a feminine twist with her makeup.
