A woman who managed to enchant audiences with her simple elegance, Audrey Hepburn is one of the brightest starts in the history of cinema. Her sense of fashion and style will inspire us forever.

Throughout history we’ve seen enigmatic and captivating actresses who, in addition to demonstrating their talent on the big screen, have captivated the world with their style and elegance–from the sultry Marilyn Monroe to the glamorous Elizabeth Taylor. But, one of the most important names in the world of fashion and film is the beautiful Audrey Hepburn.

What can we say about Audrey Hepburn that hasn’t already been said? We all know her great film career that earned her 5 Oscar nominations and one victory. We know that she had a difficult childhood. And any fan of the actress knows that one of her passions was dancing ballet. So, we know the story behind the myth, we know the woman behind the legend.

When we talk about fashion, it’s impossible not to mention Audrey Hepburn. In addition to having a great influence on the world of cinema, she had a great impact on the fashion industry. Her deep and enduring relationship with Hubert de Givenchy is one of the most iconic duos in fashion.”Fashion came into my life when I had my very, very first couture dress made by Hubert de Givenchy,” the actress once said. “The beauty was extraordinary.” Hepburn’s style is classic, her outfits are reference points of elegance and continue to inspire thousands of creative minds today. Both on and off the screen, her looks have become part of the collective mind of society. We all love the black dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s or the strapless dress with a black on white flower print that she wears in Funny Face.

Yes, Audrey is a legend. She is a woman who inspires us and who will always be a great role model. Personally, I love the simplicity of her outfits– a timeless style that is still a reflection of maximum elegance. Her style was never about trends, but rather timeless luxury. This weekend we heard that Rooney Mara will be in charge of giving life to the legendary actress in an upcoming feature film under the direction of Luca Guadagnino. So, I thought it was the perfect time to look back and be inspired by some of the most elegant and beautiful outfits that Audrey Hepburn wore throughout her life.

Classic timeless style

One of the actress’s most memorable outfits is the dress she wears in the opening scene of the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961). This Hubert de Givenchy designed dress in black satin, paired with a pair of gloves and a pearl necklace, is synonymous with timeless Parisian luxury and style.

Audrey Hepburn was an actress who showed us that there is beauty in simplicity. Throughout her life, she managed to captivate audiences with elegant, classic, and simple looks, which have managed to survive the test of time. A clear example is the look she wore in the movie Funny Face (1957) during the scene in a bohemian bar, in which the actress performs an interpretive dance.

Throughout her life Hepburn had three different wedding dresses, one by Sorelle Fontana (which she never wore), one by Pierre Balmain, and finally one by Givenchy. All three are beautiful creations, but one of the most famous was the last, which she wore to her wedding with Andrea Dotti. The pale pink represents the inspiration of the 1960s.

Audrey Hepburn made her big screen debut in the film Roman Holiday (1953), and with her stellar performance she managed to conquer the world and win an Academy Award. She was clad in an ivory dress with floral lace when she went up to receive the statuette. At that moment, she became a Hollywood star and a fashion icon.

One of the most emblematic images that exists of the actress is a photo of her next to her first husband, Mel Ferrer, in which she’s wearing a blouse with a turtleneck and gingham print pants. Hepburn managed to combine the classic comfort of sportswear with the refinement of European luxury, resulting in a modern style that never goes out of style.

Modern royalty

During the film Funny Face, another great moment is when Audrey wears a ball gown embroidered with black and white flowers with pleats at the back. This Givenchy design is one of the most magical and feminine that the actress ever wore on the big screen. It’s an outfit worthy of any modern princess.
