I've always thought that Audrey Hepburn was the very essence of style. I'm at the other end of the spectrum, but it doesn't stop me from appreciating it in other people!

Great "Y" post...

What a fun post. I can't say that I have a favorite film outfit.

Splendid Little Stars said...

Those are quite memorable costumes! What about the ones in Gone With the Wind?
The green gown is so lovely!

Hi Nora and Lola,

So many fabulous outfits and films.
Always loved the movie Grease and Audrey in the Givency gown.

Enjoy the week

I like every outfit worn by Audrey Hepburn - the designs were so beautiful and she carried herself with such grace!

Tracy Cook said...

I love them all oh to fit in to even one of them

Jeanne Pursell said...

My favorite is the first one!

Hope all is well with you two!

VBR said...

Well, I am partial to those black capri pants and top from Grease!

But, I would have to say my favorite dress in any movie I have ever seen is the white dress Elizabeth Taylor wears in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. That dress and that simple diamond solitaire necklace are the essence of 'woman'.

Fun post for Y!

I love EVERYTHING Audrey Hepburn EVER wore. And the Grease costumes were fun, too.


Jim said...

My vote is for Audrey Hepburn in her black Givenchy gown. Also Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favorite movies yet today.

Jim said...

Oh yes, the worst in my book is Raquel Welch's cave girl get-up.

Do love those things Audrey wore but my favorite period for fashion in the movies is the 1930's. For instance, Myrna Loy in the Thin Man movies. Ginger Rogers, Katherine Hepburn, etc. Love those clothes!

Ralph said...

I like the period wear in Grease, the movies and stage versions feel like the 1950s (even as a baby at the time :). Actually, I think that Rex Harrison in the tweedy suit, not at all a costume, truly looks like a classy English gentleman despite not being a costume. Hepburn is all class in that dress and cigarette holder - I know we shouldn't smoke, but the long holder is just too cool!

Gemma Wiseman said...

A great range of costumes! Most are familiar to me except Keira Knightly's! Love the stylish flow of that beautiful green gown!

Barbara Rosenzweig said...

Love the Olivia Newton John Grease outfit - just can't fit into it now! LOL

Thanks for enjoying my Pelican painting!!

Audrey Hepburn dreamy! Love the gown in How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days and always love the style of Carrie Bradshaw! Thanks for sharing. I am catching up and you share some of the best stuff!

Yeah, Yippee is way better than Yello!

Isn't it amazing that Raquel Welch had the body before there were 'enhancements'?

This is a fun link for Alphabe-Thursday's letter "Y".

Thank you!
