Happy birthday, dear Audrey!

2 Comments 05 May 2011

If you didn’t already know, today is Audrey Hepburn’s birthday! If she was still with us she would have been 82 years old today, but you know what? Audrey is still very much with us. Her influence is as strong as ever, she’s as popular as ever, and everyone still wants to be her.

To celebrate the fairest lady’s birthday, WatchMojo put together a video tutorial on how to get Audrey’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s look in makeup:

So if you would like to celebrate Audrey’s birthday but don’t quite know what to do, why not give yourself a little makeover and pop in one of her films? To make it extra Audrey, indulge with a piece of chocolate, Audrey’s favourite treat. Remember a lovely person by making yourself feel beautiful.

Special thanks to Stephanie for sharing this link with us.

Audrey’s Song

No Comments 07 July 2010

Updating three days in a row? I must be ill! Or there’s just too much going on for me to stay silent. Today finds us looking at the Italian Vogue website, where writer Cesare Cunaccia tells us about the time he met Audrey Hepburn in 1983.

A little Audrey inspiration for you

No Comments 11 June 2008

I’ve been catching up with the guestbook entries, and there are so many sweet and lovely entries! I’m so glad the site makes so many people happy, helps them remember a wonderful woman, and helps newer generations discover her for themselves. While us girls may sigh once in a while, wishing we could look more like Audrey, someone by the name of Just Me has a perfect way of saying “Stay you”:

hello again

No Comments 30 March 2008

I can’t thank you enough for your ongoing patience with all this! My computer is fixed, I’m just waiting on acquiring Photoshop and GoLive again so I can fix pictures and webpages, but I’ve still being working two jobs and prepping for a move. So after the move next month, the dust should settle and we should be back to normal.

To make up for my extended absences, here’s a little something for the ladies: an Audrey Hepburn 50s makeup guide, complete with an elfin Audrey look-alike model! Enjoy, and be sure to try it out on yourself sometime soon. Thick black eyeliner’s back in, ya know. 🙂

Audrey Hepburn in the Ultimate Hotties list

No Comments 22 October 2007

I forgot to mention when I posted the Entertainment Weekly articles that Audrey Hepburn was also mentioned on the magazine’s website. EW is currently polling their readers via the site to see who the Ultimate Hottie is. The contest is still ongoing, but in the Ultimate Female Hotties: The 60s and Earlier, Audrey is definitely on the list:

Ultimate Hottie Moment Wearing a slinky black dress and clutching a long, skinny cigarette holder in 1961’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

You can see Audrey’s page in the list here, and view the competition in general here.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s voted Most Stylish — again

1 Comment 11 October 2007

It seems that just last month Breakfast at Tiffany’s was voted the most the Most Fashionable Film in movie history, and this month Teen Vogue follows suit with their list of Hollywood’s Most Stylish Movies. In the number one spot? Breakfast at Tiffany’s, of course! The list is actually a little surprising for a fashion film list and includes a lot of films I wouldn’t have pegged the Teen Vogue crowd as ever having seen, let alone see as fashion icons. It’s a very pleasant surprise, though, and makes Breakfast’s win even sweeter. To see the whole list for yourself, go here.

Audrey Hepburn makeup tips

No Comments 09 October 2007

I’ve been throwing out tons of tips lately on how to look like Audrey Hepburn or Holly Golightly for Halloween lately, but what about in everyday life? That’s where the book Audrey Style comes in. The first Audrey Hepburn book I ever bought, this book is in equal parts a tribute to her enduring sense of style, impact on the world of fashion, and tips on how to get your own Audrey style. There’s a section in the middle that gives simple, step-by-step instructions on how to do your everyday makeup to look like Audrey, and you even get a variety of styles to choose from (click for full-sized version):

For Audrey

No Comments 05 October 2007

China Glaze makes nail polish in about every colour imaginable. They’ve created a special varnish called “For Audrey,” (alternately “Something Blue”) and if the shade looks familiar, that’s because it’s Tiffany blue. Yes, they somehow managed to get the rights to use Tiffany’s trademark turquoise-but-not and make a polish named in Audrey’s honor. It seems to be a little hard to get, but I’ve found that 8ty8beauty has plenty in stock at $2.48 a bottle. Not a bad deal, right? Unfortunately shipping isn’t automatically figured in to your order, so you’ll either have to write and ask them (be sure to state how many bottles you’ll be wanting and where it’ll be shipped to), or take a guess. I asked the shipping price for 4-5 bottles and it was $6, so all in all it’s pretty reasonable! If you’d like, you can order here.

How to look like Holly Golightly; Audrey interview from 1990

No Comments 28 August 2007

A few days ago I got a message from askmemakeup on You Tube, telling me about a new makeup video she’s done instructing women on how to get the Holly Golightly look in makeup. I watched it last night, and wow! It’s really good. I’ve always had a difficult time with false eyelashes (maybe due to my real eyelashes — they’ve been likened to giraffe eyelashes), but after watching this video I really want to try it again, and I have a good feeling I’d finally get it right. Watch for yourself, then try for yourself!
