I am so excited to share this month’s Get the Look feature, one of my idols, Audrey Hepburn.
In 1954, Audrey married actor and film director/producer Mel Ferrer. She wore a ballerina-length dress with full sleeves by Pierre Balmain. She accessorized with elbow length gloves and a fresh floral crown (let it be known: Audrey did it first!).

In my search for how to get the ‘Audrey Hepburn’ look for your wedding day, I found that the classic ‘Audrey’ look that we all know and love is based more on what she wore for her role in the 1957 film “Funny Face”. The dress is still a very similar cut to her real wedding gown, so I decided to base my research on the gorgeous Givenchy gown that made this style famous.
The ‘Audrey’ dress is known for it’s high neckline, fit and flare cut, and tea length skirt. Here are some of my favorite picks, at a wide variety of price ranges, that I feel really represent this iconic look.
What do you think? Are you in love with the ‘Audrey’ look? Which dress is your favorite?
