Style Icon Inspiration: Audrey Hepburn

There is a reason why so many women list Ms. Hepburn as a huge style influence. She had grace, a clothes friendly waif-ish figure, perfect bone structure, and class.  From her early films like Roman Holiday and Sabrina to her classic roles in Breakfast at Tiffany's and My Fair Lady, Audrey wore many quintessential styles by Hubert de Givenchy.  Givenchy called her his muse and designed all of her film wardrobes starting with Sabrina and also designed clothes for her personal wardrobe as well.  Use her as your wedding inspiration muse, as well, and you wont look anything but chic!
