I was given this book for Christmas, What would Audrey do?,which was very lovely but don't rush out and get it because it is more words than pictures. In fact get this instead Audrey Hepburn: A Life in Pictures as visuals are far more interesting to flick through I think.
In a complete Carrie moment it got me thinking 'why are we still discussing Audrey and her style?'
It appears her looks and the clothes transcend decades and generations. When I first started to read the Gossip Girl book series, which I was far to old to read but devoured them anyway, I was struck by the character Blair's Audrey Hepburn obsession and used to be intrigued how it would develop when a new book came out every six months - it didn't really but I still loved the books.
The best insight is probably by Rachel Moseley and Growing Up with Audrey Hepburn It was a key book for me in my MA studies to understanding the importance of audience reception theory to film and in turn on fashion.
What I would say is..if you think you know Audrey then go and see Two for the Road at the BFI Southbank this Wednesday if you can!
Are you in awe of Audrey? What does she represent to you?
PS I wrote this post a few days ago but there is definitely something in the air as the lovely Fashion's Most Wanted was treated to a screening of Breakfast at Tiffany's for her brithday!
