“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
-Audrey Hepburn

 

Celebrities come and go but not all can keep their influence alive for long beyond their gravestone.

Even though our lifetimes barely coincided, I find so much inspiration from the legacy of Audrey Hepburn.

A star actor of her time, she stood out as an actor, style icon and humanitarian.

Here are five things I admire about her minimalist fashion style.

As it always is with actors of her calibre, Audrey’s style took a centre stage in her career. What was however striking about hers was its ingenuity; Audrey didn’t just have an eye for fashionable pieces, she could create her style by herself.

Anyone can turns heads with a thigh high slit or a deep neckline but I love that Audrey could keep things modest and still look smashing.

Audrey could wear white gloves and look nothing like an opera conductor.

Of course, there’s no Audrey Hepburn without the short fringe.

Not many looks can be framed and still bear relevance decades after but with Audrey, as it was then, so it is now.
