Classic styles featuring Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn


I haven’t seen as many classic films as I would like to say I have, but recently I had a mini-marathon of movies, that included Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the Marilyn Monroe film, How to Marry a Millionaire. It was my first time watching either movies and as shocking as this may sound to some, I was not a fan of Breakfast at Tiffany’s at all. I found Audrey Hepburn’s character dull, stubborn and selfish. 


On the other hand, I found How to Marry a Millionaire thoroughly entertaining the whole way through. The clothes were absolutely exquisite and contrasted completely with the next outfit. Full of both conservative and sexy outfits, bright colours and flouncy skirts, there was always something to admire of each character’s attire. Whereas Holly’s outfits of Breakfast at Tiffany’s consisted of little more than a black dress with gleaming jewelry.


For those of you who haven’t seen How to Marry a Millionaire, I highly suggest you do. This post is more of an ode to another Monroe classic. For me, she will always be the most glamorous of ladies.


Who do you prefer – Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe?
