Audrey is a timeless icon.
However, this status of fashion muse was, at first, not expected. Indeed, her thin silhouette was the complete opposite of the beauty standards of her time. Nevertheless, she met Hubert de Givenchy who established her as his fashion muse. Moreover, he designed many of the iconic outfits of her movies. Ever since then, Audrey became a classic fashion icon and a symbol of femininity.
Still today, the collections are tinctured by Audrey Hepburn’s style and by fifties in general. Designers dress their models with flower-shaped dresses, man’s white shirts, cropped skinny jeans, gingham motifs and ballet shoes. They find their inspiration in Audrey’s looks, so effortless and timeless.
Her classic beauty not only influenced the fashion of her time, but continues to inspire designers and fashion lovers today. Indeed, still in 2011 we can notice clearly that Audrey is, without the shade of a doubt, the ultimate muse!
Still in Chloé’s shows, the designer dresses their models with preppy dresses and ballerinas.

The peak of chic is the fitted coat. Louis Vuitton’s shows are inspired by the 50’s and 60’s concept of elegance embodied by Audrey Hepburn on fims like Charade or Love in the Afternoon.
Ralph Lauren reinterprets the idea of the high-waisted skirt combined with a white shirt to give an appearance of elegant effortless woman. Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton designed retro preppy-ish dresses.
Even on the Couture catwalks we can find the Audrey’s touch. Christian Dior is undeniably inspired by Sabrina’s sense of ladylike fashion.
