Audrey Hepburn: Her Fashion Legacy #iCon

When we hear the name Audrey Hepburn, we all know her as that movie poster girl. In reality, she is more than just an actress. A Belgian, born in 1929, Audrey’s impact goes beyond the movie screens.

If there’s one thing that we can associate Hepburn with is her famous black Givenchy dress, which was sold back in 2006 for 467,200 euros – the highest price paid for a dress from a film. The impact that that dress has.

This Black Givenchy Dress is a certified Audrey Hepburn style, from her critically-acclaimed movie, “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”

To pay homage to the iconic queen of the film industry, let us look back to some of her iconic styles:

The Audrey Hepburn Hair

The Updo hairstyle is a classic Audrey Hepburn.

The Audrey Hepburn Updo Hairstyle is one of the most influential hairdos of all time, making it one of the most requested style in salons all over the world.

With her beauty and charm, she can definitely rock a fringe hairstyle.

Before Miley and Katy rocked the hairstyle, Audrey was one of the pioneers of the fringe hairstyle among female celebrities.

The headscarf is one of the staple accessories for women in the 50’s.
