How To Be An Audrey
" Audrey was all class. Not just in the way she dressed, but how she treated people. "
Audrey Hepburn is an icon. This may be the biggest understatement of all time. We at Luna Selene have been lifelong worshipers of this tiny goddess and it felt fitting to name our shoes in her honor.
The Luna Selene Audrey Green Suede Kitten Heel was designed with Ms. Hepburn in mind. While she is known for her ballet flats, Audrey put kitten heels on the map. See her stunning kitten heel style in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961).
Audrey was an enigma, a person who comes along once a lifetime. She had the warmth of the sun and the strength of a lioness. Whenever in doubt, channel your inner-Audrey and the world will be your oyster.
Here are ways to be your-most Audrey-esque self.
1. Always Speak Words of Kindness
Audrey was all class. Not just in the way she dressed, but how she treated people. She deeply cared about others and treated them with grace. She adored children and animals and was a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for many years. She was truly a woman who gave “goodwill” to everyone she met.
2. Respect Yourself
It’s hard to believe that Audrey had insecurities; hence the comments she made about her appearance used in the 2020 Netflix documentary, Audrey.
Her humanity made her a queen, and her self-respect made her a force to be reckoned with. She held firm in her boundaries and refused to be treated unfairly. (Rumor has it, she went toe-to-toe with Humphrey Bogart on the set of Sabrina-impressive!).
3. Be Your Own Movie Star
Audrey Hepburn could have been an unknown name and she still would have had that movie-star quality. Act as the star of your own life; it’s the only one you will have as you.
4. Flirt With the World
There’s nothing like a little flirt to spice up an ordinary trip to the market. Audrey had the subtle art of the flirt down to a T. As perfectly written in the book What Would Audrey Do?, “It’s good practice, and it makes the day go faster.” “It also keeps your energy up and moving in the right direction. Whether you’re waiting in line at the Motor Vehicle Department, or running errands on a Saturday morning, it makes life more entertaining.”
5. Avoid Trends
Obviously, Audrey was a fashion icon and always had a pulse on the fashion industry. Despite her guru-status, she never fell into trends. Audrey developed her own personal style early on and stuck to it. Her style was timeless and clean, something that the fashion world still emulates today.
When creating your personal style, play with clothing to see which styles and colors are most flattering and representative of you. Go for pieces that are timeless and can be mixed and matched to re-create different looks.
Basic items all women must have:
- A little black dress (a no-brainer).
- A starchy white Collard Men’s Shirt
- A pair of fitted black of slacks
- A pair of classic heels
- A relationship with your tailor. (Tailoring will make a world of difference in how your clothes fit).
