Fab Friday Icons: Audrey Hepburn

It’s the last Friday of the month (and of 2012!) so I decided to end it in style! Last night, I flipped through the pages of the new book Audrey: The 60's and just had to dedicate today's posts to the by far most elegant and iconic fashionista of the 20th century...AUDREY HEPBURN!

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” – Audrey Hepburn

She embodied grace, elegance and style in not only her fashion and wardrobe, but her actions and lifestyle as well. I’ve always admired this petite movie star for her beauty and generosity that showed from the inside out. To me, she was one of the most beautiful women of all time with her glowing skin, sparkling doe-eyes and slender, ballerina figure. Muse to famous designer Hubert de Givenchy, the iconic LBD was born…and you know you’re never overdressed or underdresses with a LBD!

Givenchy went on to design the actress’s personal wardrobe, as well as her movie ensembles. Hepburn had such an elegant look. Her clothes were perfectly tailored, clean-cut and timeless. They were simply perfect…minimalistic and classic. Here's how you can get the Audrey look:

Pearls have always been an Audrey staple. I just love how this necklace falls on the nape of her neck. Some say Diamonds are a girls best friend...I say pearls are!

What's your favorite Audrey Hepburn movie? Has she inspired you as much as she has inspired me? I'd love for you to share you favorite Audrey looks with me, so leave a comment below!

Great design isn't always about symmetry, it's about balance.

Create equal but different visual interest on both sides of your space by playing with varying heights, weights, and quantities of your objects on opposing sides.
