The impeccable style of Audrey Hepburn (my favorite all time style icon) is the center of the exhibition that opens its doors today, at the Museum of Ara Pacisin in Rome, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of her famous film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s (which is one of my favorite movies). An exclusive video will reveal moments of her private life away from the scene.
The retrospective reveals many of the clothes that made the actress a style icon, with her oversize sunglasses and scarves. Considering the link between the life of Audrey and the history of fashion, the images will be accompanied by some garments and accessories created by Givenchy, Valentino, and many others.
The highlight of the exhibition is the green Vespa, with which her partner, Gregory Peck, drove her through the streets of Rome. In the mid-1980s, Audrey Hepburn had left Rome to settle here in Switzerland, where she died of cancer in 1993 at age 63. In tribute to her role as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, a portion of the ticket price will be donated to the organization to fund a project against child malnutrition in Chad.
