I just watched Audrey Hepburn in Billy Wilder's "Sabrina," and
I've never considered this actress a beauty, but...
She has more than Model looks.
Great lips, and great, widely spaced eyes.
Few were better than Wilder, and for those interested in "Fashion," this film is a tutorial.
Edith Head, a legendary Hollywood costume designer, took the Academy Award, but the gowns were apparently by Givenchy.
Hepburn's makeup looks a little heavy handed--who am I to complain about lipstick outside of the lip lines?--and the eyebrows are a little heavy handed, but...
Well, Hepburn is to die for.
We see her in black tights--what could be more contemporary?--and white short shorts.
Which is to say that Hepburn's wardrobe in this 1954 film--before even my time, LOL--shines by any standard.
And... Hepburn sings "La Vie En Rose"?
I know from at least one MM girl that her bookings dropped off when she cut her hair, but Hepburn looks great here.
Short and clean.
This is at least as sophisticated as the Givenchy-Head gowns.
Really, really, beautiful.
And this is what inspires me.
