An enduring icon of elegance and taste with a remarkable sense of style; unparalleled allure and spirit continues to absorb and enchant us all, young and old, on-screen and off-screen.
Born in Brussels, Belgium in 1929, Audrey was a British actress and a humanitarian. Her spirit and dedication towards working and re-telling children’s stories of war came from the personal agony and trauma that she had to go through when she was a child. Audrey’s encounter with the ravages of the Dutch war along with food rations, being seized by the German army, pushed her to being anemic and having respiratory issues throughout lifetime. The emotional trauma stayed too, the horror of human suffering made a lasting impact on her. Working with UNICEF was her way of showing gratitude to the organization for all the help she received in times of need. Much defined by her spirit of compassion as much as a creative spirit; her legacy continues to touch millions of people, giving them the strength to Hope, Dream and Love.
Started as a cat walk and photogenic model, her career gravitated towards acting. As a relatively novice actress, she displayed an intrinsic ability and was regarded in the industry by one and all. Amongst a lot of her successful movies, it was ‘Breakfast at tiffany’s’ that set Audrey as a style icon, embodying her as a role model for generations in years to come. Her style is best described as ‘Gamine’ fashion, a style that portrays a sweet and innocent yet charming and attractive appeal. Taking her style and allure into consideration, Audrey is a name every fashion enthusiast affirms and approves. Audrey has also been an inspiration to many JD Fashion shows as well.
Audrey flaunts a short pixie-cut hairstyle, thick eyebrows and a slender figure. Her choice in styles that she picked, juggled between ‘casual boyish’ and ‘sophisticated feminine’. She swore by high-waisted trousers and A-line dresses, accessorized with a slim, tight belt to emphasize her small waist. Audrey’s love for scarves takes them to a totally next level where instead of wearing them around the neck, she wears it on her head, as a full-on headpiece that perfectly embraced her small, defined face.
“His are the only clothes in which I am myself. He is more than a couturier; he is a creator of personality”
Her film ‘Sabrina’ not only cemented her status as one of Tinsel town’s finest but also introduced her to the designer to whom she’d become muse. While it’s legit that Audrey as a Fashion icon popularized a ton of different fashion statements back in the 60’s, one outfit that truly made a mark in the fashion world as well as the world of enthusiasts and admirers, was the ‘Little black dress’ that she wore for her film, ‘Breakfast at tiffany’s’, designed by the very well established and Audrey’s dear friend himself- Givenchy. To accentuate her entire look she accessorized her plain black dress with a pearl neckpiece and an embellished barrette placed on her soft bouffant, along with chic gloves to complete her statement look.
Audrey’s patent layering of clothing is a dream come true for all the skinny women out there, who wish to add a little volume to their lean figures and simultaneously define their narrow waists by simply adding a belt, a style tip amongst a wide array of knowledge one could acquire and imbibe at JD Institute of Fashion, not to mention how comfy it feels to wear. Speaking of volume and breadth, Audrey believed one could never go wrong with nautical stripes. It gives an illusion of broader shoulders and wider torso to a petite figure, like Audrey’s, not to mention how timeless it is since you could always go for nautical stripes and still look chic.
From experimenting with menswear to a red lipstick, oversized sunglasses, contrasting patterns and clashing prints, the JD faculty helps in building confidence amongst all students and instilling in their minds that it’s okay to experiment with pre-set norms and implement ideas. Audrey’s beauty not only shines through her physical look but through the faces of all the people she has helped through her humanitarian work. Today her Savoir Faire for Fashion serves as a source of inspiration to designers and ordinary women. In her choice of clothing she knew what invariably worked for her and kept it; not adhering to preconceived beauty and acquainting standards is another value that we at JD team swear by. Audrey’s selections were timeless classics and cultivated as Audrey style and we all here are living epitomes of it, trailing and acing her looks that are still pleasantly crisp as if it was just yesterday.
