Hollywood and it’s glamour from the twentieth century is something that can’t be repeated. A lot of fashionable persons and glamorous styles are the synonyms of this Hollywood. But one woman stands out, even today, from everyone and everything. It’s Audrey Hepburn – a real stylish icon that’ll always be remembered by her style and unique beauty.
She was born in Belgium in 1929 and the movie that launched her to the top was ‘ Roman Holiday’ for which she even earned an Best Actress Oscar in 1954.
Next movie, Sabrina, established her as one of the most famous ever actresses and introduced her to Hubert de Givenchy, a well-known designer, now the most famous couture brand, for whom she was a life-time muse.
Either she needed something personal or movie clothes (most memorable are those in ‘Funny Face’ and ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ Givenchy was the designer. People still remember what she said about him: ‘His are the only clothes in which I am myself. He is far more than a couturier, he is a creator of personality.’
The proof for this is next: little black dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s was sold for £467,200. No one ever gave so much money for a film dress.
Simple and elegantly was her way – perfect for her tall figure. Straight clean lines, an ever-lasting style, was her personal signature.
She wasn’t only beautiful, but also smart and a great humanitarian. She also proved her acting talent in master pieces acting with, Humphrey Bogart, Henry Fonda, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, William Holden, Fred Astaire, Peter O’Toole, Albert Finney and Gregory Peck.
