Rare Audrey Hepburn is a tumblr blog featuring rare and popular photographs of the 'S wonderful Audrey Hepburn. I do not own any of these pictures; I do my best to credit the photographers of each picture as well as providing the date the picture was taken. I encourage all to message me if you have additional information on the photographs posted. Every picture posted is a great find I've stumbled upon during my Audrey Hepburn pictorial hunt. Also, follow me at My Humble Fash and Sandra Deevoted.

tr0picalmermaid asked: hello! what an amazing blog! I truly adore Audrey. I just want to know your thoughts on your definition of being classy. Thank you, love x.

I think often times people associate class with money, power, and etiquette; and, although good manners are important, to me, being classy is about being an authentic person.  Classy is defined as “stylish and sophisticated” and I agree with that, but to me classy is about being stylish without having to alter your appearance or self to appeal to others. Thank you for the question and compliment.  I very much appreciate it. Xo

Who better to know the answer to this question than the author of Audrey Style?  I tweeted Pamela Keogh and this was her response:
