    YAYAYAYAY! I love Audrey and old Hollywood :)

    Breakfast at Tiffany’s is my absolute favorite movie (for more than superficial reasons I assure you- I see too much of myself in Holy Golightly), but I love her in Roman Holiday almost as much.

    Audrey Hepburn was just a truly beautiful, elegant person. Inside and out. Are you doing more of these? GRACE KELLY IS MY FAVORITE/STYLE IDOL. Just so you know ;) Do Liz Taylor too, no one could pull off OTT like that lady. And all of those dresses in Cleopatra! Drool. Worthy.

    (Oh, I just reread your intro to this. Okay then. But what about the 30’s and 40’s actresses. Veronica Lake, Rita Hayworth, Bette Davis, Vivien Leigh? Can you tell how excited I am, haha. Oh, and do some ofr old Indian films as well please. I love those just as much.)

      Did I say “could” in regards to Dame Elizabeth? I’m sorry, I meant can. She WILL LIVE FOREVER.

      I’m with @pdaervo all the way…..Grace Kelley, Rita Hayworth, Nargis, Devika Rani…..sigh! – epitome of grace and elegance. Could you please upload some of those photos/videos. It makes this blog so much more interesting. A big thank you for this one…I’m starting my day with “think pink.” :-)

    The black Givenchy dress is the most iconic image (besides Marilyn Monroe’s white dress) of the 20th century in fashion& film.

    PnP this is the most loved post of mine in HHC. Being a true admirer of Old classic BnW movies (for which I have faced a lot of criticism). I truly loved the way old movies were, so classy, so beautiful and so elegant. Audrey’s movies tops my chart too, Roman Holiday being my fav.

    Sabrina- Great movie again. Sometimes I wish I was born in that era somewhere in Rome lol. But ya only for sometime ;)

      MANGOgrl – why do you face criticism for admiring old classic movies? It’s probably from pseudo-cool people who have no in-depth knowledge of anything.. I love classics – indian and western, print and film :-) Well, i think you’ll find lots of us here that share your passion:-)

    While Givenchy gave us our beloved Audrey in the black dress with pearls her wardrobe and look became trite. Audrey did branch out and boy did she in Two for the Road. Her looks were radical, fun and daringly classy!

    It remains my favourite movie of Audrey’s for the innovative film making, Albert Finney and most importantly for Audrey achieving the the third element in the trifecta of fashion : lines, co-ordination and ADVENTURE!

    An angel!! What a class act! Audrey Hepburn was/is still the most beautiful woman in the world – and not just in terms of looks. She had the most beautiful heart as well. And a great actress.
    She could look fashionable and classy even in a pixie outfit.

    Givenchy & she created magic.

    A cherished post this will be….

    Audrey hepburn had more than just dressing sense or sense of style. She had class along with beauty that was so pure. They don’t make em like her anymore.
