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.
6. The Trench Coat
The trench coat has become a staple in every woman’s wardrobe.    In the latest issue of Vogue, with cover girl Kristen Stewart, there is a wonderful layout featuring a new spin on the trench coat. The models are seen wearing the traditional look made popular by Burberry as well as more fun spins such as a polka dotted trench and a vibrant red trench.  Through the years we’ve seen it transform from convenient outwear worn by the British and French soldiers in World War I to an example of elegance and sophistication especially when worn by the dapper Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca.  However, Audrey Hepburn took this look one step further transforming the timeless outerwear from smart to chic and thus becoming an essential for every fashionista.  In the last scene of Breakfast At Tiffany’s a tragically sad Holly Golightly is shown wearing a trench coat tied at the waist, worn with a pair of kitten heals and her hair pulled back into a fun, modern twist on the school girl pigtail.  Soaking wet Paul and Holly share a kiss in the rain forever cementing the trench coat as the sleek, seductive outwear of choice.
