Audrey Hepburn - female epitome of style & beauty

Tips from Audrey

- Keep it classy, be natural and subtle.

- Never underestimate the white shirt.

- Grooming is key.

- Wear what you love - Audrey was the first person to wear ballet slippers in public, she dreamed of becoming a ballerina but due to WW2 and her height, she could not; instead she wore her ballet slippers.

- Improve your posture - everything looks good with head up and shoulder back.

- Lower your voice - think of Audrey singing "Moon River" on the fire escape at the set of Breakfast at Tiffany's. 

"A girl can't read without her lipstick." - Audrey as Holly Golightly, in Breakfast at Tiffany's

Sabrina, Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany's are my favourite Audrey films, I can watch them over and over. Sabrina for the script (and Humphrey, of course!), funny face for the fashion and Breakfast at Tiffany's for sweet Holly. I'll never be bored of Audrey.
