Audrey remarked of the designer Hubert de Givenchy that, ‘He gave me a kind of look, a silhouette…What is more beautiful than a simple sheath made an extraordinary way in a special fabric, and just two earrings?’ This sheath look emphasized Hepburn’s famous gamine look and began to mean ultimate femininity.
She appeared on covers of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar but her secret to success was that she stuck with fashion that suited her. However, pretty much anyone can carry off the Hepburn look today even if you are not slim and petite. A shift dress can be flattering on any figure and any woman can look great in ballerinas. The timeless elegance of Hepburn is achievable by everyone. Flowers like roses, larger than life earrings and a loveable feeling for fashion is all necessary to pull off the Hepburn look. Remember above all to feel comfortable; Hepburn was actually said to value comfort over fashion.
