Photographs of Timeless Fashion Icon Audrey Hepburn Donning Her Signature Accessory: The Hat

Audrey Hepburn’s status as a global style icon owes as much to her endless assortment of fabulous headwear as it does to her body of film work. Hepburn and her hats were a match made in heaven and for decades she not only graced the silver screen but the cover of every glossy magazine throughout the world, rarely captured without her signature accessory.

Hepburn starred in many great films including Roman Holiday, Sabrina, Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, My Fair Lady and, of course, Charade, the movie that started the craze for her famous pillbox hat, much loved by Jackie Kennedy. She will always be remembered for her incredible hats, which have become part of our cultural heritage and movie folklore. From Givenchy, Mr. John and Dior to Cecil Beaton and Balenciaga, Hepburn inspired loyalty, set trends and cemented reputations.
