Channeling Hepburn

A wonderful way to start the day. The sublime Anne Hathaway stars in American Vogue’s November issue cover shoot, photographed by Mario Testino.

Recently, Joan Collins was quoted as saying there was no truly beautiful actresses in Hollywood anymore, as opposed to the likes of Ava Gardner et al. She did say that the only person she felt could fit that mold would be Angelina Jolie, but after seeing these pictures I feel like she missed someone out.

Anne channels old Hollywood in these gorgeous photos and looks amazing whilst doing so. My favourite images are the third and the sixth in the set as she looks uncannily like Audrey Hepburn, who is definitely in my top 3 style icons of all time. The third image really reminds me of Hepburn in Sabrina, when she has returned from Paris and she shows up to one of the Larrabee’s infamous parties in that stunning Givenchy dress. And, of course, we all know what the sixth image is reminding me of. Anne is the spitting image of Audrey in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, proof that the LBD plus chic chignon combo never dates. It’s a timeless classic, just like Audrey Hepburn herself, and I can see Hathaway following in those footsteps. Oh to look this effortlessly chic…

I love these last two images of Holly Golightly and Cat which I found whilst looking through endless amounts of gorgeous Audrey photographs on Google.
This is me in 5 years: living in New York, with no money but plenty of glamour, dating men for money and with no-one but a nameless cat for company. I can't wait :) HA!
