My Ultimate Style Icons: Audrey Hepburn & Brigitte Bardot

Some style just withstands the test of time. And while there are quite a few people who have gotten Style right, I definitely have my top favorites. I remember being borderline obsessed with classic style when I was younger. It started with my love of magazines. I would not only read the articles but I would observe the style in all the ads. Clothes just made me feel happy… you know that feeling!!

But I’ll never forget getting big stacks of magazines leftover from my mother and older sister. I read about all the best Seventeen had to offer. One day though, I came across a picture of Breakfast at Tiffany’s in one of the magazines. I had to know who the girl in the movie was! This glamorous woman in one of the most elegant outfits I had ever seen…

So of course after some digging, I found out she was none other than Audrey Hepburn. I would later come to love the movie and even book…but she was my style icon right then and there. Effortless yet elegant. Now I am thirty years old and still her style speaks to me and influences me. I hung that very picture I had seen in my first apartment and every apartment after that.

There is a twist to this love of dear Audrey though. Another time I saw a photo of yet another beautifully styled woman..and she stood out like a weed in a rose garden…but in a good way. She was just different. Her style wasn’t as simple as Audrey but that’s what made her awesome…So in came my Bridgitte Bardot obsession. I mean her hair alone is amazing!!!

And after all of these years of loving style, I am convinced that combining that 60s don’t-care hair and black eye liner with elegant pieces are the key to perfection. Well my happy perfection atleast 😉

Style & Grace. Period. Her timeless combinations of big sunnies and simple black on black ensembles will never grow old. The neutrality of it all was pulled off with the perfect makeup and accessories. She makes minimal look so chic. Being comfortable was always what set her apart. She believed happiness was the best look…and who isnt happy when they are cute and comfy?!

Her hair speaks volumes…get it?! But for real… that volume, that tousled look…ugh yes please! It’s no secret that obviously the 60s speak to me and inspire me but even today that hair and make up looks good on anyone who dares!! She also had a style that is adapted today too. The ultimate cool girl look.
