My absolute fashion icon... forever (by vogue.com)

“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and. . . I believe in miracles.”
Audrey Hepburn

If we could choose a miracle, it would be to see the actress herself—perfectly turned out and happily here to celebrate today. On what would have been her 83rd birthday, for this installment of Dress the Part, we honor her legacy as a practically unparalleled fashion icon by highlighting a trio of her signature looks from her classic films. Whether in the guise of Holly Golightly in Givenchy—the dress that launched the LBD—window-shopping for jewels and gallivanting around an idealized version of New York City in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, an incognito princess exploring Italy in Roman Holiday, or an intellectual turned high-fashion model in Funny Face, Hepburn’s onscreen style never misses the mark. Offscreen she was just as chic as her characters, keeping it simple with clean lines and silhouettes that highlighted her famously slim physique. Capri pants, ballet flats, men’s button-down shirts, a classic trench were her off-duty go-tos—all synonymous with the Audrey Hepburn aesthetic that lives on to this day.
