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.
9. The Coat
One style that definitely lasted through the years was Audrey’s choice in coats.  She daringly chose bold colors like the one worn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.   Holly and Paul having just fled a drug store in which they stole two children’s masks, Audrey is shown wearing a brick orange wool coat with large buttons, soft shoulders, and a funnel neck.  Such was a trend in Audrey’s choices of Givenchy coats; brave colors with sizable round buttons, either a boat or funnel neckline and at times three-quarter length sleeves.  The style suited her well.  Audrey donned similar style coats in Charade and How to Steal A Million.  In How to Steal A Million her character Nicole pairs a bright pink coat with a thin, rose colored night gown and black rain boots.  Only Audrey Hepburn could make such an eccentric outfit desirable.   No matter the ensemble, Audrey has proven time and again that a well designed coat can make any outfit fashionable.   When in doubt think simple and clean lines, allow the jacket to be the statement piece.  Fashioned with sunglasses and a pair of modest earrings a sophisticated coat is revamped from a means of warmth to an inevitable eye catcher.
