Must See Films

Roman Holiday 1953

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.
