Instagram star and HELLO! blogger Emily Johnston – better known as the brains and beauty behind lifestyle blog Fashion Foie Gras – is huge fan of mixing classic shapes with contemporary trends, and has now taken her cue from the iconic beauty looks of Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn to create three sunny summer looks perfect for a Riviera holiday or city heatwave alike.
From soft curls and smoky eyes to a sleek chignon and statement collar, Emily has got us covered in her new video (below), created in partnership with sunglasses brand Süüna, whose summer collection is inspired by the stylish shades chosen by the silver screen pin-up stars.
In the video, Emily makes her Princess of Monaco look seem effortless, pulling her hair into a low bun before adding a quick spritz of hairspray to tame flyaway hair before. Her beauty routine remains soft and simple, with defined eyebrows and minimal make-up offset by a pop of colour from a bandana or scarf tied at the neck, and Süüna's Corinne glasses to keep you comfortable in the sun.

Naturally, creating the perfect Monroe look requires bouncy curls – Emily recommends wrapping hair round a downwards-facing curling wand then pinning each curl in place at the scalp to keep the twist in place despite any holiday humidity. Swept to the side with a bold red lip, temporary beauty spot and pair of dramatic cat-eye sunnies like Süüna's Sian, the Norma Jean look is complete. Whether you're blonde or brunette, you too can find out why some like it hot!
The final classic look brings Breakfast at Tiffany's to Brunch Just About Anywhere. Take a thick section of hair from the front of the head and pin behind the ear to frame a high bun – slightly lower and neater than a modern weekend top-knot. Winged eyeliner and a neutral lip are all you need to balance the style; just add statement jewellery and a pair of oversized sunglasses (Süüna recommends their statement Olivia shape) for Emily's elegant Audrey Hepburn look.
