Audrey Hepburn did not invent black dress, but no one in the history of fashion is more connected to the Little Black Dress.
In her films, Audrey Hepburn told us stories of different girls wearing the black dress portrayed by her and touched our heart with every single one of them, the girl and the dress: From the iconic black floor length dress she wore at the beginning of Breakfast at Tiffany's, to the unforgettable short sleeved black dress she wore holding balloons in Funny Face, to the playful sleeveless black dress with tie shoulders she wore in Sabrina, to the sublime black velvet dress she wore in film War and Peace.
In her life, Audrey Hepburn loved to wear black dresses just as she did on screen, whether they were designed by Hubert de Givenchy or not. Once and again, she showed us how to look eternally elegant in an extremely simple black dress, and made us understand why we think of her when we think of black dress.
Audrey Hepburn alone can be an encyclopedia of the Little Black Dress.
