Favorite Audrey Movie Fashions: #4


I’m crazy about this Paco Rabanne dress.

It’s a “love it” or “hate it” creation. I’m in the former camp because it shows that Audrey could be ‘60s mod and still look fabulous. Even today the dress dazzles (OK, the “hate it” people would say it blinds, but so be it).

Hepburn wore this dress in the 1967 film “Two for the Road,” a movie that improves with age. Rabanne is one of several costume designers credited for the film, so I’m not sure which other creations are his.

Regardless, Audrey looks ‘60s chic in many of the clothes. This dress is a startling and welcome departure from her usual elegant gowns with classic lines. I’m curious to know what others think!

  3. I love Audrey's look in TWO FOR THE ROAD, it was a perfect fashion direction for the still-young-and-beautiful actress after her ultra-stylish and highly fashionable turns in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, CHARADE, and MY FAIR LADY.

    She wore it all so well...

  4. You are right about that. She looked stylish in "Paris When It Sizzles" and "How to Steal a Million," but "Two for the Road" was a distinctive '60s feel that still works today.
