"I might as well be reaching for the moon."
This dress makes me think of Audrey Hepburn for some reason. I have a feeling that she would wear it given the opportunity. Maybe I'm just looking for things to associate this dress with Audrey, but it brings to mind Audrey's lace dress that she wore when she won an Academy Award, although this one is black instead of white. It could also be that it reminds me of her because I feel like it is one of the more elegant dresses I own, and what was Audrey if not the epitome of elegance.
Earrings: Lindex (old)
The earrings I'm wearing in these photos are also Audrey-esque. I had been looking for earring like these for years after seeing similar ones on Audrey in a photo shoot (see below), and for my birthday last year my mother surprised me with these perfect ones!! Thanks Mum!
I was a bit hesitant adding the photo of Audrey, because who wants to be compared to her?
Her beauty is not rivalled by anyone, but I do feel like these photos of me carry some of her grace in them. I definitely did try to channel my inner Audrey and embrace her poise.
Audrey Hepburn is one of my all time style icons (not to mention idols). She embodied a grace that was unique. Are any of you Audrey fans? Or is there another classical Hollywood cinema star that you look up to? Audrey has been the one for me since I first saw her in Sabrina. I'd love to hear about your icons in the comments.
