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.
10. The Little Black Dress
The most influential fashion in Audrey’s expansive collection of inspired looks, without any hesitation, is and will always be the little black dress.   Surely it would be a crime to only credit Audrey, considering the master designer behind the look was no other than courtier Givenchy.  However, without Audrey as his muse the timeless look would have never made such an incredible impact in the world of fashion.  Originally, the little black dress was the creation of legendary Coco Chanel, but in 1961 through the combined forces of Hepburn and Givenchy, the little black dress was reborn and fashion enthusiasts took notice.  The little black dress was designed for the ageless movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  Walking the streets of New York, in the early hours of the morning, an elegantly dressed Holly Golightly makes her debut in a black Italian satin dress draped in pearls holding a throw-away cup of coffee and a breakfast danish.  In that short scene history was made, and the little black dress became the staple of every woman’s wardrobe.   Today the LBD is recognized by every designer as an essential.  The elegant dress stills holds the same acclaim it did when it first premiered in 1961, that in 2006 Natalie Portman was photographed wearing the Givenchy masterpiece for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar.  Although the dress may have out lasted the muse, it was Audrey Hepburn who forever transformed cocktail wear and the closet of the everyday woman.
