Fashion Icon: Audrey Hepburn

Classy and iconic actress Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of a true fashion icon. She has inspired so many actresses, models, and just everyday people in general. Here are some of Aubrey’s most famous looks that I personally love and has influenced me to wear something similar. Everyone needs a little Aubrey Hepburn in their lives.

This is the traditional LBD that became Hepburn’s signature look. Although it’s still extremely popular, no one pulls it off quite like Aubrey. She’s not showing off her body, she’s just wearing a classy and beautiful dress that she clearly loves.

This is THE Audrey Hepburn classic look. After looking at this picture, it’s not hard to see why. The gloves plus her necklace and gorgeous bun and hair piece makes the outfit truly come together. This is a look that will continue to be continually recreated and remembered.

Not many people can rock sunglasses quite as well as Audrey can. Her bathing suit is totally chic and stunning. Plus her timeless pixie cut is showcased here so it’s obviously an important look that we shouldn’t forget about.

I could be wrong but there wasn’t a whole lot of actresses wearing pant suits like this back in the day. Most actresses wore only dresses that showed off their curves and other body parts. (I’m looking at you, Marilyn Monroe) There’s nothing wrong with that, but Hepburn brought something new to the table by making this minimal look such a classy looking one. She was skinny and lacked curves, but she was different from other movie stars at the time and we embrace her look and timeless beauty.

Spotlight On: Lindsay Weir

Spotlight On is a monthly featureish thing that I’m starting this month where I take a look at one particular character and explore how they go with the theme. This character is always going to be fictional and from books, movies, or TV shows. This month focuses on Lindsay Weir from the cult classic 90’s teen drama Freaks and Geeks.

Lindsay

Although the series didn’t air until the ’90’s, it takes place in the 1980’s. The main character Lindsay starts out the series as a smart good girl who’s a member of the mathletes. After the death of her grandma, she begins to question everything. She begins to drift away from her childhood best friend Millie. She begins hanging out with the freaks at her high school after being invited by bad boy Daniel Desario. Throughout the series, Lindsay frequently struggles with becoming a freak and doing things that aren’t typical of her.

Lindsay is a classic example of what happens to high schoolers. Everyone in high school is trying to discover who they are. Teens are evolving and experimenting, some of which are more dramatic than others. Lindsay happens to be one that goes through dramatic changes as she gets closer to the likes of Daniel, Kim Kelly, Nick, and the other members of the gang. Throwing parties, vandalism, marijuana, bars, detention, and many other adventures that Lindsay takes part in. She begins a relationship with Nick, a guy who desperately wants to become a drummer but knows in his heart that he’s not good enough to be a serious professional.

Despite all of her change, Lindsay is still the same deep down. Sure, she’s changed what’s important to her but she still knows who she is, that’s one thing that never changes. She grows more confident and sure of herself during the season. Her change may not be permanent, but it’s one that she is content with. She enters a rebellion period but her fashion definitely evolves for the better. The army jacket she stole from her dads closet becomes her trademark that she wears all the time. Lindsay Weir is a character that most represents change which is fitting for my monthly theme.
