If you like the sound of strutting around in Givenchy dresses whilst being wooed by actually decent human men, then an Audrey Hepburn movie might be ideal.

Through her impressive catalogue of movies, Audrey shows us her unforgettable style.

Funny Face, 1957

Screenplay by Dalton Trumbo, Ian McLellan Hunter & John Dighton. Directed By William Wyler.

It was apparent that Audrey Hepburn was a beautiful creature, right from her very first movies. But it wasn’t until Funny Face where we saw how stylish this girl was. She looked great in Haute Couture as well as beatnick clothing. This movie has all the looks and, naturally, is set in Paris.

Breakfast At Tiffany’s, 1961

Screenplay by George Axelrod. Directed By Blake Edwards.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s made Audrey Hepburn an icon. In this role, the polite English girl that Hollywood fell in love with became a morally bankrupt, money-loving socialite who lives on 5th Avenue with a fake accent.

The petite actress runs around New York, doing things she’s never done before with a friend. Her favourite spot is in front of a jewellery store, pastry and coffee in each hand, staring at diamonds that she can’t afford.

Charade, 1963

Screenplay by Peter Stone. Directed By Stanley Donen.

After ’50s musical Funny Face, it seemed like France had adopted Audrey, and a lot of her films were shot here. Charade begins in the French Alps with Audrey looking ever so chic in her winter clothing. She makes a solo coffee at the Apres Ski look anything but cold and lonely.

Paris When It Sizzles, 1964

Written by Julien Duvivier and Henri Jeanson. Directed By Richard Quine.

Like Charade, more of Audrey’s films were shot in Paris, including the rom-com Paris When It Sizzles. Struggling for inspiration under the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, makes writer’s block sound desirable. Por plus Hepburn in Paris watch How To Steal A Million or Love In The Afternoon.

How To Steal A Million, 1964

Directed By Willaim Wyler.

Audrey goes to the dark side in this rom-com and hires a burglar to steal from a Paris museum. But she isn’t all bad. She’s doing it to save her dad from going to prison for art forgery. And she does it all while looking like a model.

Two For The Road, 1967

Written by Frederic Raphael. Directed By Stanley Donen.

And finally, one of Audrey’s later movies is probably her smushiest. If you like making your eyes wet, Two For The Road is for you. It follows a couple road tripping down the south of France, remembering a time when they were younger and hearing Audrey say the word ‘bastard’. If you fancy road tripping down the South Of France, you don’t need a man to drive you around, but this movie might convince you otherwise. I mean, it also might look weird rolling around on a beach by yourself.

Dressing like the pages of Vogue is all part of the Audrey Hepburn aesthetic. Even though for these movies she had makeup artists, wardrobe managers and hairstylists ready to throw themselves at her delicately painted toes, I’m sure you could look that good too. I believe in you.
