pretty pictures: holiday

it's no big secret that i love audrey hepburn.  i even went through a stage where i watched breakfast at tiffany's multiple times a day, for roughly 2 months.  not just because of audrey but let's face it - she is the one that made holly golightly holly golightly.  i loved her before this time, but after she/holly got me through such a difficult time, i began to adore her on an even deeper level.  maybe that sounds strange or slightly idolatrous but it is what it is - i love audrey hepburn.  i idolize audrey hepburn.  i aspire to be like audrey hepburn.  audrey hepburn is grace, compassion, intelligence, talent, and natural beauty, in the purest form.  someone to look up to, someone to emulate.  oh, audrey, audrey, audrey...

she is an original.  often copied, never reproduced.

so i'm not always the biggest fan of audrey as a halloween costume, audrey look-a-likes, or celebs doing photo shoots trying to replicate traditional "audrey" poses.  [remember emma roberts in glamour?  no offense little emma, but no thank you, i'll stick with the original]  so just imagine my surprise when i saw this editorial, published in tatler magazine, and liked it! 


and the craziest part?  the model who i actually think captured audrey's fun and carefree spirit is phil collin's daughter!  crazy unexpected.  and crazy cool.  can't wait to see what she does next!

  1. Delightful photographs. I love Audrey Hepburn, too, and Breakfast at Tiffany's. I agree, she's got something of Audrey's charm. :)

  3. Now the pic with the dog is great and very similar to the real deal. I love Audrey Hepburn. Wasn't Jennifer Love Hewitt playing her in something? I can't stand her!
