Audrey Hepburn’s film catalog is a gold mine of fashion inspiration. From her first staring role as Princess Ann in Roman Holiday, to her last film as an angel in Always, she was the epitome of style. Audrey came onto the Hollywood scene when most starlets were voluptuous bombshells. She looked a lot different than what was popular at the time, but she didn’t let that stand in her way. She accentuated her positives, and in turn, changed the look of what was cool. A lot of current styles and fashion lines site Ms. Hepburn as an influence, but even within her style, there are a lot of different directions you could go in. If you want to know which Audrey Hepburn character you are, grab a paper and pen, and take our survey below.

Which Letters Do You Have the Most of? 8 of 14
You have finished the question portion. Now it's time to see which Audrey you are most like.
A’s 9 of 14
Holly Golightly, from Breakfast at Tiffany's, is arguably Audrey Hepburn's most fashionable role. Every outfit is iconic and perfectly-styled, from the kitten heels to her hot pink tiara, and everything in between. If you're ever in a fashion rut, throw this movie on and you're sure to be inspired from start to finish.

If you answered the majority of the questions with the letter B, you must have a Funny Face, a fabulous funny face. Librarian turned fashion model, Audrey dances through Paris to find herself and love. In her famous dance scene, Audrey wears white socks with her black outfit. As a classically trained ballerina, Audrey wanted to have long lines and thought the white socks would break up the look, but later praised the wardrobe stylist for the idea.

My Fair Lady is one of my favorite movies. I love the idea that anyone, from anywhere, could be cultivated into a woman that would be mistaken for a princess. Audrey's character starts out selling flowers on the street, and is turned into a confident, beautiful, strong woman. Her fashion choices are also confident, beautiful, and strong. Just like you.
D’s 12 of 14
In Roman Holiday, Audrey plays a princess who gets a chance of a lifetime. She gets to see what it would be like to holiday as a commoner, but nothing is common about her wardrobe. She keeps the class of royalty, although her style is infused with a relaxed chiÄ‡ness that can only be found in Italy.
E’s 13 of 14
Sabrina's wardrobe from Paris, is actually designed by french designer, Hubert de Givenchy. Although he is not given credit for it in the film, he created three of her most iconic looks: her traveling suit, her homecoming gown, and her black bateau neckline dress. He was a brand new designer, and this collaboration sparked their lifelong friendship. Your style is a mix between Paris and New York, which makes it special anywhere in the world.
F’s 14 of 14
In Two For The Road, Audrey wore the majority of her own clothes. Each outfit has so much personality and confidence. You can tell that Audrey knew exactly what worked for her, but wasn't afraid to push the fashion envelope. You're a brave fashion soul that's sure to stand out from any crowd.
Hopefully you had fun thinking about the connections between your personal style and Audrey’s. If you haven’t seen some of these movies, maybe it’s time for a movie night! I recommend a few less popular picks too: Charade (my all-time favorite), How to Steal a Million and Wait Until Dark.
