An ode to Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn was born on this day in 1929.

Can you imagine a world without Audrey Hepburn? The Hollywood star who was undoubtedly one of the most recognisable film and fashion icons ever to have graced the silver screen.

Audrey’s ‘look’ has been revered and imitated for many years. But she was not only a fashion icon and star of stage and screen, she also countless hours of humanitarian work for UNICEF? Or that she could speak several languages including English, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish and German? 

Why not watch this short documentary about her impact on modern fashion?

Or have a look at our Audrey Hepburn gallery, and tell us which look is your favourite?

Which is your favourite image of Audrey? Or which is your favourite Audrey Hepburn film?
