Channeling Audrey Hepburn …

Audrey Hepburn is a style icon who epitomised style, elegance and grace. Her groundbreaking dress sense still influences fashions of today. She was the popular muse of French couturier, Hubert Givenchy, a collaboration which produced some of the most iconic fashion images in cinematic history.

Clothes in Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe included staples such as ballet shoes, capri pants, trench coats and turtlenecks as well as little black dresses, indulgent ball gowns and an assortment of accessories such as pearls, sunglasses, scarves and hats. Here are ten things that we can all learn from the lovely Ms Hepburn.

1. Dress with confidence and don’t be afraid to make a statement.

    Wow i think that she has an aura about her that just glows, and thats what true beauty is… what an inspiring role model!

    I agree Naomi. It is her inner beauty that makes her so inspiring. It is a shame that we don’t have many celebrities of her ilk today and no, Lindsay Lohan does not count!
