50th Anniversary edition of Funny Face coming soon!

Comments Off on 50th Anniversary edition of Funny Face coming soon! 07 July 2007

Great news from loyal reader Bill! The release of a 50th anniversary special edition of Funny Face (Region 1) has been announced, with a release date of October 2nd. This new DVD will feature a few items already seen on the original DVD — the Paramount in the 1950s featurette, original theatrical trailer, and photo galleries — plus a few new featurettes, including a cryptically named Parisian Dreams and a new piece on Givenchy and Audrey called A Fashion Designer and His Muse. You can already pre-order through Amazon so you’ll be sure not to forget, and it’s close enough to the holidays so you can put it on your wish list without having to wait too long. Mark your calendars!

Speaking of Givenchy, I came across this story recently. Apparently, the fashion guru is of the personal belief that fashion in and of itself is dead. People seem to only be fixating on popular accessories and following mindless fads, rather than spending the time (and money) to actually find what works on you as an individual and look good. It’s a great read, though fairly short, and I agree with him on all accounts. If I could afford it, he could dress me every day of the week. 🙂

A close second

Comments Off on A close second 24 June 2007

Clothing site Miss Butterfly recently held an Internet poll to determine which film dress is the most iconic. Unfortunately, Audrey came in second place with the record-breaking black column dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, being beat out by Marilyn Monroe’s equally iconic white dress from The Seven Year Itch. If it’s any consolation, at least Audrey made it a close second without showing her knickers. 🙂 You can read more about the poll and its winners here.

Audrey Hepburn is still hip

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn is still hip 10 March 2007

In the midst of Paris Fashion Week and all the new collections coming out for fall 2007, it’s nice to hear that Audrey Hepburn is still alive and well on the catwalks. In spite (or because?) of Gap’s usage of her last year, women everywhere still aspire to her cigarette trousers, little black dresses, large glasses, and all around aura of sophistication and class. Bend Weekly has an article discussing Audrey’s lasting power in the world of fashion and even provide a checklist to make sure you have all the Audrey essentials in your closet. Remember, Holly Golightly had a small, bare closet in her flat, but she still managed to always look smashing. If she can do it, you can do it.

Audrey Hepburn’s first screen test

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn’s first screen test 23 February 2007

The British Film Institute is teaming up with Hewlett-Packard to publicize more than 300 film clips from their vast archives. A new “mediateque,” a sort of mini-film theatre, will open March 14 in London’s South Bank and will be completely free and open to the public. Audrey Hepburn’s first screen test ever will be available, along with Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation and early Victorian films. BFI also hopes to release around 300 more clips before the end of the year to the general public. You can read more here.

Audrey Hepburn: Still The Fairest Lady

1 Comment 22 January 2007

Time Magazine wrote their own tribute to our lovely Audrey on the 14th anniversary of her death. At first, I was wishing I had just posted their story instead of writing my own awkwardly expressed tribute, but the more I read, the more I was disgusted that this article was printed by no less than Time. While starting out as a lovely remembrance for one of the few top-notch celebrities who lived their life drama-free and managed to turn their life into something meaningful, it quickly degenerates into a crass article that you’d think was talking about Lindsay Lohan or some other tartlet that isn’t held very high in anyone’s esteem.
