Audrey Hepburn: A life of style in memory of an iconic bride

18 JANUARY 2013

Twenty years after her death, Audrey Hepburn's iconic beauty continues to dazzle. One of the best actresses of all time –  starring in films like Breakfast At Tiffany's and Roman Holiday for which she won an Oscar – her ethereal graces still enchant us today.

Even amongst the voluptuous actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age, Audrey Hepburn made skinny fashionable and her short hair became a stylish must-have for brides across the globe.

Enchanting on-screen as well as off, the beautiful actress was known to captivate the hearts of everyone she met and, to date, she is still remembered as on of the most glamorous brides of the 20th century.

In her 14-year marriage to actor Mel Ferrer, the Belgian-born star wore some of the most memorable costumes and styles of her era. During this time she was fond of accentuating the natural thickness of her eyebrows and often pulled up her hair into soft twisted chignons, with a subtle nod to the statement beehive that would later develop in the Sixties.

Neat, chic and positively timeless, this intricate hairstyle will leave you looking no less than a star on your big day and it's no hassle to replicate. Simply lightly backcomb your ponytail and pin in place for an effortlessly elegant look.

Of course Audrey's timeless, iconic style made her famous beyond the characters she played in films such as Breakfast at Tiffany's Holly Golighty, and her wardrobe both in and out of the spotlight still influences the fashion world to this day.

Take inspiration from Audrey's fearless fashion trials and dare to opt for an untraditional, non-white colour on your wedding day.

Having married her second husband Andrea Dotti in a sweet, feminine pink shift dress with a matching headscarf, the Hollywood actress added tradition to her wedding day look instead with an ivory white bouquet and soft gloves in matching cream.

A renowned lover of monochrome, there's nothing more chic than to match your wedding outfit to Audrey's favourite colour combination.

A black shift dress is a fantastic slimming option for bridesmaids or guests and is a timeless classic that can be worn time and time again.

Even today's famous faces are continually influenced by Audrey's timeless style. Victoria Beckham loves a figure-fitting LBD and Natalie Portman's face-framing brows are often compared to those of the iconic 20th century star.

The chic crop Audrey took on for the film Roman Holiday was also embraced by Anne Hathaway in her 2012 wedding to actor Adam Schulman. The 31-year-old actress kept her Les Miserables hairdo for her big day, topping off the look with a vintage headband.
