Audrey Hepburn is a classic fashion icon. Her beauty is remembered and appreciated years after her death. In honour of her birth anniversary, MyGlamm lists some lessons we learned from the Fair Lady.
Less is more- Audrey’s look was always clean, chic and minimalist. Her makeup was never too much. Her style was always effortless.

Grace before fashion- Audrey Hepburn’s easy grace and charm made even a bare face or short hair look ultra-feminine on her. Not all of us are trained ballerinas like Audrey but the correct posture and etiquette can go a long way.</p><blockquote class="instagram-media" style="background: #FFF; border: 0; border-radius: 3px; box-shadow: 0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width: 658px; padding: 0; width: calc(100% - 2px);" data-instgrm-version="6"><div style="padding: 8px;"><div style="background: #F8F8F8; line-height: 0; margin-top: 40px; padding: 50.0% 0; text-align: center; width: 100%;"></div><p style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px; margin-bottom: 0; margin-top: 8px; overflow: hidden; padding: 8px 0 7px; text-align: center; text-overflow: ellipsis; white-space: nowrap;"><a style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: 17px; text-decoration: none;" href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BE60VDXheuB/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">A photo posted by Audrey Hepburn (@ms_audreyhepburn)</a> on <time style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px;" datetime="2016-05-02T20:55:02+00:00">May 2, 2016 at 1:55pm PDT</time></p></div></blockquote><p><script src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js" async=" defer=" defer="defer">
