Audrey Hepburn – A Style Icon

Audrey Hepburn’s quotes are what girls live by these days. In a world where body image is the number #1 criteria to be accepted in the society, Audrey’s wise words help women feel better about themselves and help them in accepting themselves.

But the question is, does body image really matter? The answer to this question is no. Body image doesn’t matter at all, as long as you accept yourself and are confident about the way you look. You can however, glamourize yourself with a little bit of jewellery and feel like you own the world. Something else that you’d be needing is a good haircut and a great pair of heels and voila! You will look like the star that you really are.

Audrey Hepburn always had a unique style and she was voted as one of the most beautiful woman of all times. Is this a coincidence? Of course not. If you look at it, she’s really petite and delicate. If you are to compare her to the likes of Marylyn Monroe she won’t really stand a chance. But then again, it would be unfair because both of them belonged to different times. Then, what was so different yet so similar about them? It was their love for fashion, jewellery and a sense of confidence!

Audrey always said, “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” It was indeed her confidence and her happy nature that made her special and beautiful.

It was only a matter of time before Audrey Hepburn was tagged as a style icon. Her flawless dressing was very chic. She mostly favoured gowns and swore by pearls. She made many appearance in pearls and the media loved her for that. Breakfast at Tiffany’s was her breakthrough and the most sensational movie of all times. But what gets to the audience is her simplicity in the movie. She didn’t want a rock from Tiffany’s. A mere inscription was what she was happy with.

Here are two looks that defined Audrey the most.

She wasn’t wealthy in the movie, but it was on Sunday’s that she made herself feel special. She put on her best black dress, boho shades and a lovely neck-piece with four strands of huge pearls and a flower chocker in the front.

It was her style. To keep things simple yet chic. She always went for one piece of jewellery. Here, she made sure to keep her neck and hands bare, tied her hair up in an elegant bun with bangs covering a major part of her forehead and wore sparkling earrings. Can’t say we don’t like it.
