Special thank you to fleurine for tweeting me this video!

vivienleighed asked: I have a question, is it Laurence Olivier Audrey is standin next to in the video of the london premiere of the nun's story? And if so do you know if she ever met Vivien Leigh because they are my two fave actresses and I would be so happy if they did :) Xxxxxxx

I honestly don’t know if Audrey and Vivien ever met but it wouldn’t surprise me if the two had been introduced at an award show or some hollywood event.  Being an Old Hollywood fan myself, I would love knowing that these two fierce and talented ladies were friends or acquaintances.  I’ll be sure to keep a look out for any evidence that may suggest that Audrey and Vivien had met. Thanks for the message. :)

EDIT: Here are two videos of Audrey Hepburn and Vivien Leigh at the Royal Premiere of My Fair Lady in London, 1965.

e-loisewho asked: Hi! I'm Eloise, i'm only 15 years old and my god, I looove Audrey Hepburn. I was looking for photos of her and I stumbled upon your blog! I love it. I respect you guys so much. I wish I was alive when all her movies were shown. It could've been amazing to even see a glimpse of Audrey on the big screen. Anyway, she has inspired me to be classy, be positive and love myself. Although thanks to your blog I get to see Audrey off cam. I love her and I love you for doing this. God bless you!

Hey Eloise! Thank you! I’m so happy to know that Audrey is a positive influence in your life. :)  Also, I don’t know where you live but a lot of old theaters still show Audrey’s films today.  I’ve had the good fortune of seeing many of her films on the big screen and the experience is like seeing her movies for the first time all over again.  You notice things that you don’t pay attention to when you watch it on your TV or computer screen.  I remember thinking how beautifully dressed the extras were in Breakfast at Tiffany’s when I saw it at my local theater.  Again, thank you, your message has brightened my day. 


Autumn Bride by rareaudreyhepburn featuring tiffany & co. earrings

This wedding ensemble was inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s wedding to Mel Ferrer on September 25, 1954. Audrey Hepburn wore a tea length, semi mutton sleeve, full skirt wedding dress by French fashion designer Pierre Balmain. She accessorized her look with a floral crown, opera gloves, and kitten heels. I added pearls to compliment the look. Audrey’s hair and makeup were simple. Pale pink lips, an understated cat eye, and penciled eyebrows is just enough pop and color to complete the look.
