If you're one of those women who has style, and face it, you either have it or you don't, you'll easily identify with the legendary Audrey Hepburn.  Author and film and fashion historian Cindy De La Hoz, has put together a collection of 59 photos of Audrey Hepburn to illustrate ways to achieve style.  We of course, have to adapt her advice and examples to suit (or not) our own shapes and sizes.  Obviously we're not all as skinny as Ms. Hepburn was.  This is where "you either have style or you don't" comes in to play.  If you DO have style, you'll automatically be able to see yourself in either an adaptation of a particular illustration, or not.  Bear in mind that Ms. Hepburn's outfits were usually put together by the likes of Givenchy, and most of us are off-the-rack gals, so it's not going to be easy.  You could take a scarf as an idea, or some of her shoes, a belt, a hat, earrings, a hairstyle, or some necklace or bracelet to accessorize your chosen outfit.  There are the usual tips like the little black dress, large sunglasses, or suitable purse or jacket/coat.  And then the not so usual like her casual looks on pages 22, 26, 94 and 117.  Of course Audrey Hepburn was also known as a humanitarian (UNICEF) and she worked tirelessly to help children around the world.  This is a different kind of style, and is an admirable trait indeed.  My favorite photo of Audrey Hepburn in this book is on page 13.  I also like the ones on pages 62 and 69 as she's older and radiant.
Conclusion - Beautiful ideas from an exquisite person that was Audrey Hepburn.
