One of my favorite ways to glean fashion inspiration is to look towards a style icon of the past. What better style icon to look towards than the ever so graceful Audrey Hepburn? Cecil Beaton’s 1964 silhouette portrait of Audrey Hepburn showcases her distinctive elegance and self assurance.
You don’t need to head to the museum to find inspiration from such art world luminaries as Edward Steichen and Cecil Beaton. The Condé Nast Store makes over 100 years worth of fashion photography, fashion illustration, and fashion images from the company’s archives available for you to bring into your home. Discover gems from the archives of iconic magazines, from Vogue to Vanity Fair, House & Garden to Gourmet.
