I'm not alone in being inspired by Audrey Hepburn. This quote of hers suggests that women have always admired her style: "Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large glasses and the little sleeveless dresses." By popular acclaim, other necessities include ballet flats, men's white shirts, trench coats, pearls, black cigarette pants, little black dresses, french twists, and minimal make-up except for that glam black liner. (One site even broke the mold by suggesting pastel-coloured polo shirt tucked into skinny jeans. Too advanced class?)
Why Audrey, right now, for me? My friend Devon who introduced me to Audrey is getting married in a few weeks. Back in 2002, we watched Roman Holiday together and had bedazzled Audrey Hepburn purses (sounds a bit ugly now). I feel confident that her dress will have some Audrey flair.
Why Audrey, right now, for all of us? Her grace and charm? Perhaps also because her style unifies some of the odds and ends fashion has recently gifted us (big sunglasses, pearls, skinny jeans, ballet flats) while excluding the potentially less flattering ones.
Or maybe it has something to do with Tiffany's.
