Yes, call me a walking cliché (I bet you are one too), but there’s just something about her that I can’t really explain. Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote made history, and so did the lady starring in the film about the book. Audrey Hepburn, moviewise and more importantly, fashionwise, changed it all. Countless books have been written about her, entire collections have been made inspired by her and her films, her style never gets old and her movies, God knows how many times I’ve watched Roman Holiday (DVD is probably about to die on me). So here’s a little Audrey doodle print, one I’ve been wanting to do for a while. Paris, pink, the white gloves, the pearls, the little blue Tiffany box, all the things she used to love, all the thing I happen to love too!
“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles”.
Hope you like it as much as I loved making it!
PS: NYFW has just started and so has Sweet n’raw’s coverage! Don’t miss it!
It’s Sunday and Milan has never felt colder for me (I’ve been living here for four years). Then I think about my beloved Mexico, my little piece of paradise called Acapulco and I die a little inside (30º and Summer sun, 365 days a year). I’m not saying that I hate Winter in Europe, I’d like it better if I were inside a mountain chalet, wrapped up in a furry blanket, sipping hot chocolate (ok, maybe a White Russian to get the heat going). Holiday season really makes me homesick. Anyway, back to what concers us today. This is the sixth and probably last post from our X’mas Shopping Guide (I’m not sure if I should do a couple more, let me know if you’d like me to).
I’ve been wanting to do the classic Audrey Hepburn illustration for so long, and I finally found the perfect excuse: the gift guide for the Old Hollywood Diva. We all have that certain friend that dresses like she just got out of a Fellini movie. We all have that friend that has watched every single Audrey Hepburn movie more times than we’ve watched Sex & the City re-runs. We all have that friend that still prefers a good old Hollywood romance, than that Twilight crap playing in your nearest multi-plex. If you do have a friend like this, her it is, the gift guide for the Old Hollywood Diva. Enjoy!
