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.
5. The Hat
One of the most ideal ways to finish off any outfit is by adding a whimsical hat.  On Audrey’s first encounter with couturier Hubert De Givenchy, Audrey decided on a “black, ribbed-cotton-pique dinner dress for Sabrina’s date with Linus Larabee” (quote from Audrey Style by Pamela Keogh Clarke).  The dress fit her perfectly, modestly hiding her collarbones (an insecurity of Audrey’s) and yet, the dress wasn’t complete.  Audrey felt the dress needed something else, something to add a bit of charm.  “Her eye caught a snug-fitting cap with a spray of rhinestones”(Audrey Style by Pamela Keogh Clarke).  Adding the small accessory catalyzed the look from pleasant to enchanting.  The hat added a sweet sophistication reminiscent of the woman wearing it.  If we take a look back through Audrey’s movies we will notice that most of her awe-inspiring outfits were topped off with a fun and stylish hat.  In Breakfast at Tiffany’s her iconic little black dress was worn with a fabulous black hat.  The wide, slightly-turned-down brim with a fashionable satin sash that loosely fell below the shoulder line, added a dramatic appeal that perfectly finished the ensemble.  Also, let’s not forget Cecil Beaton who created the incomparable designs for the fantastical movie My Fair Lady.  The over the top hats weren’t worn intentionally as decorative pieces they were focal points in the movie, especially during one in particular, the Ascot scene.  The background actors transformed into models overshadowed by the divine creations seated upon their heads.  In a 1964 edition of Vogue, Audrey modeled Cecil Beaton’s stylish hats for the cover story.  Audrey delicately showed off the alluring pieces of art, each hat more spectacular than the next.  The hat is a wonderful way to smartly tailor an outfit for any event.  It’s an accessory that never deters from the outfit but confidently enhances the polished look you’re achieving. Whether it is simple sophistication or dramatic elegance, the hat always lends a pinch of panache.
oops I forgot to add (side not - probably not necessary: although the hat may be a borrowed concept the paragraph above is written entirely in my own words.)
