A true icon of our time, Miss. Hepburn remains an unforgettable muse to the world, from art to fashion, philanthropy to film. We review our top 3 favourite flicks staring the brunette beauty.

 

Roman Holiday (1953)

Roman Holiday is one of those joyous movies that still improves with time – and multiple viewings. Delighting in Audrey Hepburn’s ever-inspiring style and Gregory Peck’s immaculate suits, Roman Holiday exists as a 1953 classic made modern with a timeless love story, just as it should.

 

Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961)

It’s New York in the 1940s, where the martinis flow from cocktail hour till breakfast at Tiffany’s. Audrey Hepburn plays Holly Golightly, a heart-breaker, a dream-chaser, a traveller, a tease. Based upon the Truman Capote’s novel of the same name, this is perhaps the original and the best. Not to mention Hubert de Givenchy’s gowns cut golden screen perfection.

 

Funny Face (1957)

Funny Face is a stylish, fun and often overlooked gem in Audrey’s career. It also marks a personal highlight for her: she was allowed to sing and dance, what she had always aspired to do, and with none other than Fred Astaire.

    Robin and Marian is a touching film. Even as an aging nun Audrey still had style

    Audrey is a icon of style and fashion. Funny face is a classic with Audrey singing and dancing. She has inspired many young ladies.

    I liked The Nun’s Story – perhaps not as stylish, but absolutely heartwrenching to watch.

    I’ve seen all those movies and have to say that I love all of them but I think my particular favourite is Breakfast at Tiffanys.

    The quintessential beauty, Audrey is thrilling a whole new generation of teenage girls with her style and spirited manner in her many wonderful films. Paris when is Sizzles, is my favourite. A lady of substance, Audrey in her later years became a UN ambassador and her grace and poise can teach us all lessons today. Teenage girls could do a lot worse than have this chic woman as a style icon.

      Indeed Andrea, the girls today especially Aus are far too casual all the time…there is always room for some style that’s why we love all Blue Illusion products, each is stylish and chic in its own way and affordable too.

    Love Roman Holiday.. from my first viewing at Boarding School in the 50′s to a more recent viewing.As I sat there in my navy blue box pleated tunic & grey stockings I was transported away by the simplicity & style of her classic clothes.I’m a “happy ending” girl, & they don’t come much happier than this one.

    Audrey in Breakfast at Tiffany’s had me visit the iconic store which lived up to my wild expectations, Roman Holiday saw me seek out the Bocca della Verita and put my hand in its mouth and Paris when it sizzles had me stroll down the Champs-Elyees. Stylish Perfection without pretension.
