If any of you ladies out there were interested in Gap’s Audrey Skinny Pants but were put off by the $48.00 price tag, you may be in luck now! Gap.com has a sale on The Audrey Hepburn™ twill cropped pant. If you are a size 8, 18 or 20 (in Gap sizing), then you can order a pair through the website for only $19.99. Click here to go straight to the Audrey page, but make sure to check their sizing chart before buying! They tend to size a bit differently.
Because January is a slow month, a list has come out with the top 5 Iconic Hairstyles. Audrey’s famous pineapple ‘do from Breakfast at Tiffany’s came in at #3. The other wavemakers (har har) on the list included Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana, and Bob Marley. If you’re really interested, the whole article can be found here.

Happy New Year, everyone! First of all, a very big thank you to everyone for making 2006 such a great year. A lot of people also called 2006 The Year of Audrey, but maybe we can make 2007 an even bigger year for her. Personally, I’m going to start the year off right by watching a great Audrey Hepburn Double Feature. 🙂 I can’t wait to see what this year will bring!
Or home? If you’ve been poster shopping before, then you know it’s not hard to find an Audrey Hepburn poster. But why are some of them so expensive? There should be no reason, and Bare Walls seems to think so, too. I stumbled across them last night and found a fantastic collection of posters, many being foreign posters that aren’t seen as much (at least in the U.S.), and the average price is $16.95! And, unlike most poster websites, you can view much larger versions of the poster watermark-free. They also offer oversized glossies of Audrey as well, and most shots are the more rare photos, like Audrey in her very early modeling days. It’s nice to find lesser-known photos of her — and it’ll impress your friends even more. 🙂 Continue reading “Need a little Audrey in your life?”
So I wasn’t able to find an Audrey calendar the other day. And on Amazon all calendars “ship in 4-6 weeks.” By then January will be over! But while I couldn’t find any Audrey calendars, I did stumble across some other excellent calendars you might be interested in. Continue reading “calendars, calendars, calendars”
And for a little Audrey-related holiday goodness, you can watch “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” here! It’s narrarated by her Funny Face co-star Fred Astaire and features Breakfast at Tiffany’s co-star Mickey Rooney as well.
News is still very slow here — is everyone on vacation but me? But there is a new boutique in Palo Alto, California, which has a very prominent Audrey style. While their website is still pretty bare bones for now, Vian Hunter is already making a name for themselves with their affordable, chic women’s clothes. There’s even an LBD (that’s little black dress, for those of you who might be out of touch) named the Audrey! If you live nearby and stop in for a peek, you might even catch a glimpse of Audrey herself — rather, a film of hers playing. And to make up for the website still being under construction, they have a printable colouring book with their designs to download, completely free.

I’m a little bored right now, so I’ve been scanning haute couture websites to see what I can find. Once in a while I’ll stop by the Givenchy website to see how things are going, and I’ve found the Very Irrésistible fragrance line. I believe it’s fairly new, since products in its range are still coming out, but it’s worth noting because this fragrance was created to mark Givenchy’s return to their roots: namely, the relationship between Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn, and how together they made an image. I haven’t sniffed it yet, since the fragrance section of department stores always make me nervous, but this fragrance does contain star anise and a specially cultivated Liv Tyler rose. Here’s the full copy for Very Irrésistible: Continue reading “Very Irrésistible”
News is pretty slow today. Real slow, in fact. So I’m afraid I only have one thing to share, but it’s a very excellent article. It starts off talking about the Christie’s auction, and how the bidding frenzy and record-breaking price showed that the allure of Audrey is still going strong 13 years after she left us, and gives an excellent biography as well. To read the whole article, click here. (It’s a bit long, but well worth the read.) There’s one error, though: towards the end the author goofs and lists Sean Ferrer as Audrey’s husband. Please, no Oedipus references.
