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.
12. Think PinkIn those times of doubt, standing before your closet without a mere glimmer of inspiration, remember the enlightening words of Maggie Prescott:  “Banish the black, burn the blue, and bury the beige! From now on girls… Think pink!”  Audrey Hepburn definitely abided by this motto once quoted as saying “I believe in pink.”  The ultra feminine color, delicate and alluring complimented the striking actress, accentuating her pale complexion and rose tinted cheeks.   Always lovely in pink, Audrey made many movie appearances draped in the demure color.  In Funny Face Audrey’s alter ego, Jo Stockton, is transformed from mousy bookshop clerk to Paris’s premier model.  Debuting her new look, Jo confidently reveals the metamorphosis.   With her hair tightly pulled back, crowned with a jeweled adornment, she gracefully makes her way across the catwalk cloaked in a pink capelet and white silk sheath dress.  The crowd of hopefuls muse at the young girl’s unveiling.  In My Fair Lady, another one of Audrey’s character goes through a transformation.  Eliza Doolittle, a simple flower girl, is taught proper English by the ornery Henry Higgins.  After having been made over, the newly sophisticated Eliza Doolittle enjoys a cup of tea with Higgin’s mother.  Audrey wears a blush colored organza dress, embellished in petals, with a high collar emphasizing her long neck.  Audrey Hepburn is the absolute embodiment of exquisiteness in this Cecil Beaton design.  Whether Audrey is wearing pink ballet slippers or a hot pink cocktail dress like the one worn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, she always manages to “think pink!”  So remember ladies “Red is dead, blue is through, green’s obscene, brown’s taboo.  And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce or chartreuse.  Think pink!”
