"There are certain shades of limelight that can wreck a girl's complexion"- Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn: Style icon for more reasons than one. The Audrey Hepburn look has resounded in fashion history since she first slipped on those large dark sunglsses and swept up her hair. And we love her for her effortless ability to be accessable to all, through her innate respect of "the basic"- originality from the original. Whether this meant her smokey eyes reflected ancient Egyptian tradition, or her posture honoured Roman etiquette, Hepburn sensualized the concept of timelessness.

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

It's that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. Others matter more than you do, so 'don't fuss, dear; get on with it.'”
