Fashion Rules and Tips

  • Clean lines and simple siloutes were the key. Less was always more for Audrey.
  • Audrey knew exactly what she wanted, and knew what looked good on her body. Since she was tall and thin, she didn't buy clothes that flattered the popular curvy shapes of Marilyn Moroe and Elizabeth Taylor. Intead she bought clothes that looked good on her shape.
  • Manners were very impotant. The key to being classy for Audrey was to always behave and act like a lady.

  • Comfort came first before looking good in the eyes of Audrey. She would never be sacrifice being in pain for looking good.

  • Not only was makeup simple for Audrey, but she kept her hair simple and chic as well. In most pictures, Audrey is seen with her iconic short pixie cut.
