As time passes by, we discover that there were many more people in history who played an important role in society’s evolution, one of them being the famous actress Audrey Hepburn, known for her parts in movies from the XXth century.
Recognized as both film and fashion icons for the trends that have been following her since then, she brought substantial changes in many areas of interest, since she was a humanitarian as well.

Audrey Hepburn

Being the first actress to win an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA Award for her performance in the romantic comedy “Roman Holiday”, Audrey Hepburn played a prominent part in the worldwide cinematography, rosing to fame in the Golden Age of Hollywood and starring in renowned movies like “Sabrina”, “Funny Face”, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “Charade” and “My Fair Lady”.
Maybe many people are not aware of this fact, but, as was mentioned in Audrey Hepburn’s official biography, she helped the Resistance during World War II, although her parents were in sympathy with the Nazis.
Without knowing her style and her grace will become a model for women in the future, during the war she donated to the Resistance all the money she earned from recitals and she sometimes acted as a courier, delivering papers and money from one group of opponents to another.
The actress is still recognized as an example for all the women in the world, because she influenced the public’s opinion about the image of femininity, acting in total opposition with the other famous women of her time, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor.

As the muse of Givenchy fashion house’s head, Audrey Hepburn had a weakness for this brand’s perfumes, so in 1957 the perfume “L’Interdit” was made especially for her.
She left behind some kind of legacy to the world, things that are not going to be easily forgotten and for that, the actress is considered, even in our days, an example of beauty and elegance, the fact that was proven when she was named in 2014 “the most beautiful woman from the last 50 years”.


Since her first leading roles in cinematography, Audrey Hepburn became a huge influence for the way people are dressing and for how they are living their lives, saying something that remained in history “Life is a party, dress for it”.
When talking about clothes, we immediately remember that in the movie “Roman Holiday”, one of her first important roles, as Princess Ann who becomes frustrated since she is not allowed to visit Rome because of her tightly scheduled life, the actress was wearing a man’s shirt.
Although she was in the role of a princess and she loved feminine stylings, she spent her time visiting the city on a Vespa scooter, while wearing a manly shirt, creating an authentic look that every woman wanted to try.
The same thing happened with her short haircut, which became iconic because many women were encouraged to try something new since in that period the hair’s length was the one that made women more feminine.

Since then, every woman in the world considers her wardrobe incomplete without the perfect black dress that can be easily styled for many types of events.
During the film, the actress accessorized it with cat-eye sunglasses, which are still in fashion nowadays, an impressive hat, and some pearls, shocking the whole fashion world with her simple elegance.

being Eliza Doolittle in “My Fair Lady” or Regina Lampert in “Charade” or even Sabrina Fairchild in “Sabrina”.
In this way, she gave an important lesson to everybody, showing us that your attitude is the one that matters the most when you are creating your own style, as she said “There is more sex appeal than just measurements.”
