Fashion Icon 50's-60's Audrey Hepburn

Isn’t she beautiful? We may think so now, but by the fifties standards, Audrey Hepburn was too tall and too skinny, and was considered to have a “boyish figure”. As a former ballerina, her poise and confidence made whatever she wore look classy and elegant.

Audrey was not only a popular actress, but she was the innovator of her own style. She wore what she liked, which is a style now known as the Audrey Hepburn Look. She didn’t mean to make a fashion statement, she was just being herself. “I never think of myself as an icon.” Audrey says. “What is in other people's minds is not in my mind. I just do my thing.”

The Audrey Hepburn look is feminine and beautiful, yet very simple. She said about her own style: “My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses, and the little sleeveless dresses.” Audrey mostly wore black and white and rarely wore colors. She always wore flats and never wore plunging necklines. Here are some outfits I created that are inspired by Audrey Hepburn and the 50s and 60s:
