When I was younger, I could never really think of a role model of mine. I didn’t look up to anyone, really. I mean… Maybe my mom? But that was mostly because of her personality and work ethic. As far as fashion goes, I always marched to the beat of my own drum. But as I got older, I realized that I did have an idol.
I unknowingly aspired to be just like Audrey. She was beautiful, talented, and a philanthropist. That’s three things you don’t typically get in a celebrity. No offense. But there she was — not knowing the impact that she would make on the world. Her style is iconic. It made women everywhere want to dress much more simplistic. Hepburn’s style hones the phrase, “less is more”.
Audrey Hepburn had a “gamine” style or, in other words, a boyish look. She is mainly known for having a pixie cut and I feel that it’s what completed her look. She always looked effortlessly tailored and clean, but I believe that part of that had to do with her hairstyle.
I’m sure she styled it in the morning in some way, but for the most part, I feel like she just woke up looking amazing.
Anyway, I am always fascinated by her style and I can say with confidence that Audrey Hepburn is my greatest influence. No matter what she’s wearing, I always seem to love it. Ankle pants, striped shirts, and big sunglasses has become my go-to for the summer and I’m clearing my closet of everything that is unnecessary.

Therefore, as far as fashion goes, Audrey Hepburn is the winner. And she’ll always be the winner. I just feel like everyone should follow her style tips. She knows how to be “sexy” without showing off her goodies. Too many people try to be prettier by getting surgery or showing off too much skin. At 5’7 and only 88 pounds, Hepburn really knew how to make her body work for her. I read that her mother used to call her ugly and so she felt really self-conscious for a while. But she grew to become one of the most iconic fashion inspirations of our time. I seriously wish I could go back in time and meet her. I just feel like a day with her would automatically make me want to become a better human.
