My Fair Audrey

Every woman should mix at least a little Audrey into her style. She is classic, timeless, fun and spunky. I love her style and pretty much everything about her. Audrey is quoted as saying, "My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses, and the little sleeveless dresses" and it is so true. 

In honor of this style icon, here are are few of my favorite Audrey looks ... complements of All About Audrey, a blog dedicated to this style icon.

Audrey pictured with the cast and crew on the New York set of Breakfast At Tiffany’s, 1961.

Audrey in her very first publicity shoot for Paramount Studios in 1953. Audrey can also be seen wearing this outfit in photos with Dean Martin, Rosemary Clooney and Jerry Lewis - she was shown around the lots and met a few Paramount stars towards the end of a very long day. Photo by Bud Fraker.

Cinecitta Studios, Rome, Italy, 1955: Audrey is Tolstoy’s Natasha Rostova in King Vidor’s 1956 adaptation of War and Peace.

1956: Audrey takes some time off on the grounds of Chateau De Vitry la Ville, (18 hectares of parkland containing a castle and farmhouse, which can be seen in this photo) located in the north of France, during the filming of Love In The Afternoon.

1961: Audrey goes cycling with Famous at Paramount Studios. While all exteriors for Breakfast At Tiffany’s were filmed in New York, the interior of Holly’s apartment was created in Los Angeles on a Paramount lot.

Tiffany & Co, 727 Fifth Avenue at 57th Street, Manhattan, New York, 1961: Audrey films her iconic opening scene. Audrey disliked Danish pastries very much, so the repetitiveness of filming the shots of her eating was not enjoyable for her.

Thanks again to All About Audrey and its excellent and dedicated blogger, Anna. Head on over there to follow the blog and never miss an iconic Audrey shot.
