Today Would Have Been Audrey Hepburn’s 85th Birthday

Google pays tribute to Hollywood’s fair lady in today’s Google Doodle.

After a bizarre and traumatic childhood, Audrey went on to be a Hollywood great. Read her story on The Guardian and be sure to check out 25 Timeless Style Lessons from Audrey Hepburn on HuffPostStyle.

Surely you’ve pranced around singing Wouldn’t it Be Loverly? when you were younger. And you’ve had (or still have, or know someone who had) one of these Breakfast at Tiffany’s posters:
I had both on the back of my closet door in college. I have no doubt that they influenced my style, seeing as my collection of LBDs (Little Black Dresses) and pearls grew during this time.

Not only are LBDs universally flattering, but so very classic and versatile.

J.Crew’s Wedding Shop has several classic styles:

Raquel Dress in Cotton Cady
JCrew-Raquel-Dress-Cotton-Cady

Misha Dress in Cotton Cady {Extra 30% off w/ code: SALESALE).
Mischa-Dress-Cotton-Cady

And if you’re a 00 (I’m not…) you can score this Louisa Dress in Silk Chiffon for only $50 (reg: $250)!

Here’s my favorite LBD by Laundry by Shelli Segal:

Not only was Audrey a Hollywood star and a style icon, but she dedicated the last 5 years of her life to humanitarian work – Audrey Hepburn’s Work with UNICEF:

 “From the moment she signed on, she went into the field, meeting with the starving children whose message of despair she hoped to carry to the rest of the world. Completely hands on in her approach, she raised the consciousness of millions of people about countries they never knew existed.”

The moral of the story is, as much as we’d love to emulate Audrey’s style by eating croissants and dressing to the nines a la Breakfast at Tiffany’s, we should take her real life work on behalf of the world’s children to heart. Visit unicefusa.org to help a child now.
