The movie Funny Face has been on my mind, so much so that I felt compelled to echo the spirit of Audrey Hepburn from the beatnik cafe scene. She’s such an iconic figure in terms of beauty and fashion, but what I always think about is that she broke the mold of the time. She was a former ballerina with a very boyish figure in a time when every woman was aspiring to the curves of Monroe. Hepburn’s beauty was not in chic, she was elfish and boyish, but her appeal was undeniable.
When I consider things like fashion trends, and standards of beauty I think of her and how her confidence and unique beauty shone through despite the critiques of her contemporaries and she became an icon for generations. So I always think that though it may not be in ‘chic’, who knows who the next Hepburn will be.

How much do I love the fact that I’m wearing nerdy chic with ripped jeans? A lot! It’s so much fun to mix styles and patterns together that “shouldn’t” go together. Like the fact that I’m wearing a checkered shirt with a poodle sweater. I read a great tip today in December’s Marie Claire about mixing prints: “Lay out the items that you plan to mix. Now squint your eyes. Each item should remain separate and distinct when examined in this way.” Isn’t that a great little tip?
I’m on set for the next three days, so I’m going to try to keep posting, but you’ll forgive me if I’m a little lax about it until Monday, right? I’ll be sure to have lots of pictures for you to see over on my acting site.
