Audrey Hepburn style icon
The largest ever auction of Audrey Hepburn’s private possessions goes to Christie’s this week. The collection includes her signature ballet pumps, scripts, personal letters and jewellery. Piquing the interest of fashion and film fans alike the auction catalogue alone is a thing of beauty. Without question Audrey Hepburn had a style which has endured many years and trends. Her famous film roles created some of the most memorable and iconic images of all time. Here at Watson & White some of our favourite looks were the ones from lesser known films. “Two for The Road” with Albert Finney is in itself as visual summary of 1960’s fashion.
Here are ten of our picks of Audrey’s style from both on and off screen.
