Audrey Hepburn- truly a fashion icon:)

I’ve become a fan of Audrey Hepburn for the past few years and i cant believe it has taken me such a long time to discover this lady who was abosloutely elegant,gorgeous and stylish in the time of her present. Everytime i saw her photos i just got so excited and fixated on how beautiful she was, and how defined her facial features were.

I was watching one of Audrey’s classic movies “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1961) and i was so impressed with her sense of style.  And i have to say, i  particularly love how her style was so simple and looked effortlessly stunning. In fact, much of her dress sense  is very similar to how the fashion world has evolved around up to this day. From the LBD  to the casual blouse with trousers to the evening tube dresses, it proves that fashion is a never ending cycle in style. Just look at how all the skinny jeans, leggings, big padded jackets and rock n roll metal studds are just flooding back into our daily shopping experiences. My friends actually say that my style is very 80’s but im not sure about that?

I love this scene in “Breakfast at Tiffanys”  where Audrey sings Moon River and i actually think she sang better than the version done by Andy Williams. Enough talking, lets enjoy Audrey’s sweet singing:)

The final scene of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” – a real smack in the face on reality of love:)

I was browsing online and came across one of her movie “Sabrina” (1954) which i really want to see after reading the storyline. This is one scene that i really like and i suppose its because of the song she sings in this scene that im really fond of – “Vie En Rose” which means life in pink in French. This song was actually originally sung by the French singer Édith Piaf.

I cant believe its been 17 years since Audrey Hepburn has passed away. She truly was a sensational and extraordinary woman who lived life in the glamorous but always kept things in perspective. I was amazed when i found out how truly down to earth she was and a humanitarian for good causes, such as being appointed as the ambassador to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) later towards the end of her acting career.
