The Simply Luxurious Life®: Rules Of Style – Audrey Hepburn  

January 20, 2011

Rules Of Style – Audrey Hepburn

A list of style icons wouldn’t be complete without the graceful and elegant Audrey Hepburn. With her classic, timeless style, she reminds us all that less is more, good etiquette will never go out of style and a good heart is irreplaceable. Here is a look at a few of the lessons we can take away from such a stunning and unforgettable woman.

Less Is More 

Be Compassionate


Ankle Pants & Flats


Good Posture


Scarves & Sunglasses 

A Classic Trench


Go Nautical




Can’t Go Wrong With Black


Rock A Pixie Cut 

When you’re beautiful and strong on the inside, it doesn’t take much to share your beauty with the outer world. The key is to believe that you do indeed possess such qualities. Thinking of others, speaking a kind word, subtly playing up your body’s strengths, we all could be reminded of such elegant simplicity from a very classy lady. Thank you Audrey.

Wow! What fab images. I don't think she ever did a bad photo. Love the one of her on her bike-so Parisian!

I absolutely loved her in 'My fair lady' and also as Holly. She's so chic and effortless.

I left a little something for you on my blog :)

I was flipping through a photograph book of Audrey and she just exudes such a natural elegance that we rarely (if ever) see today.

Ohh, Audrey - how I love thee! She is definitely my style icon. I describe my fall/winter wardrobe very Audrey-esque, while my spring/summer is very boho-esque. Great post Shannon, keep the style inspiration coming! xoxo

A lovely, elegant tribute to a true Lady of Fashion. I admire Audrey greatly and I adore her body of front of the camera and behind as well.
I LOVE your site & have enjoyed a cup of tea with you so many times this week... I would love to know if you have ever posted about Grace Kelly?
Have a wonderful weekend.
