Audrey Hepburn inspired 60’s Look

You guys may know by now that Audrey Hepburn is my biggest inspiration. Not only because of the wonderful human being and actress she was, but also because of her sense of style. I think I’m allowed to say that she is one of the biggest fashion icons of the 20th century.

I already created many different Audrey inspired looks – Holly Golightly, Regina Lampert from Charade, Jo Stockton from Funny Face etc.

And here’s another one to my little – well – collection or how should I call it? It’s a late 50’s/early 60’s look and inspired by some of Audrey Hepburn’s most famous ones. It’s not exactly a recreation but I mixed a few of her looks together.

I went for a simple makeup – eyeliner, dark eyebrows and a light peachy lipstick – something that Audrey has worn very often during that time. For the hair I went with a simple chignon which I created with one of those hair bun makers. Again, this is a hairstyle that Audrey loved to wear – whether in films, on the red carpet or in her private life. Plus she wore it with and without her bangs, which is great for me because I don’t have bangs. Last but not least, I picked my Holly Golightly inspired earrings and my little black dress, which are both from IamAnAudrey. And there’s my 60’s inspired Audrey look done!
