Icons & Muses: Audrey Hepburn off the set

Hailed as one of the most beautiful women Hollywood ever laid eyes on, Audrey Hepburn was stylish and graceful both on and off the set. Her iconic look has been a reminder of the longevity of sophistication. Her opening scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s defined the classic LBD and her ball gown in Sabrina (paired with the pixie haircut) remains one of Hollywood’s finest on-screen fashion moments. Hepburn’s cool gamine chic off the set is a timeless look that still inspires us today.

The word gamine never sounds quite so beautiful and elegant as it is when applied to the description of actress, philanthropist and longtime muse to Hubert de Givenchy Audrey Hepburn. The two began a lifelong friendship and professional collaboration with the 1954 classic Sabrina (in which Givenchy was not credited as famed Hollywood costumer Edith Head refused to be co-designers but subsequently won an Oscar for the collaboration). From dreamy ball gowns, chic LBDs, to playful 60s mod style, no other duo created fashion moments quite like Hepburn and Givenchy. Here’s a taste of their iconic collaboration on the silver screen from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Sabrina, Charade, How to Steal a Million, Funny Face, and Paris When It Sizzles.
