Beautiful Photos of Audrey Hepburn Taken by Milton H. Greene For Life Magazine in 1953

Film and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn was known for her fashion choices and distinctive look, to the extent that journalist Mark Tungate has described her as a recognizable brand. When she first rose to stardom in Roman Holiday (1953), she was seen as an alternative feminine ideal that appealed more to women than men, in comparison to the curvy and more sexual Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor.

In 1954, fashion photographer Cecil Beaton declared Hepburn the “public embodiment of our new feminine ideal” in Vogue, and wrote that “Nobody ever looked like her before World War II ... Yet we recognize the rightness of this appearance in relation to our historical needs. The proof is that thousands of imitations have appeared.” The magazine and its British version frequently reported on her style throughout the following decade. Alongside model Twiggy, Hepburn has been cited as one of the key public figures who made being very slim fashionable. Vogue has referred to her as “the acme of classic beauty”.

Hepburn was associated with a minimalistic style, usually wearing clothes with simple silhouettes which emphazised her slim body, monochromatic colors, and occasional statement accessories. Her influence as a style icon continues several decades after the height of her acting career in the 1950s and 1960s. Throughout her career and after her death, Hepburn received numerous accolades for her stylish appearance and attractiveness.

These beautiful photos of Audrey Hepburn were taken by Milton H. Greene for Life magazine in Malibu, September 1953.
