Remembering The Iconic Audrey Hepburn And Her Unforgettable Fashion Looks
Plus, a new documentary that dives deep into her glamourous yet tumultuous life
A gorgeous black dress, layers and layers of pearls, and to cut through the chicness, a black pair of edgy glasses! We’re talking about the iconic scene from Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Audrey Hepburn standing in front of Tiffany & Co., croissant in one hand and coffee in another. This was followed by girls from across the globe flocking outside the store to recreate the scene. To say that Hepburn was a major pop culture influence would be an understatement (with her latest influence in the popular series, Emily In Paris).
The British actor and fashion icon left behind a legacy that’s rather difficult to dilute. But who was the real Audrey Hepburn? If you’re searching for answers, then the quest ends here. A new documentary titled Audrey: More Than An Icon, a first-of-its-kind film will look at Hepburn’s life from an in-depth perspective—right from her chaotic childhood during the Second World War to her unparalleled work and fame in the industry. What makes it stand apart from the other creations on the legend? The documentary comes from the masterminds behind the BAFTA-nominated film, McQueen. The international release of the documentary is slated for February 8, 2021.

The documentary will be made with both—consent and contributions from Hepburn’s family members. Expect interviews from the actor’s son and granddaughter where they shed light on Hepburn’s life, battles with malnutrition and abandonment.
Apart from shining in the bright lights of ‘50s Hollywood, Audrey Hepburn was rightfully called, a fashion icon. From her signature Givenchy black dresses, gingham pants, turtle neck sweaters to aqua blue sleeping mask that created a riot in the fashion scene, she was a legend in her own right.
