16 Practically Perfect Audrey Hepburn Summer-Style Pictures

Photographs of Audrey Hepburnenjoying summertime on the golf courses at her Alpine hideaway – the Bürgenstock resort in Switzerland – are enough to spur you to stock up on ’50s sundresses and take up pitch and putt. The British actor – who was discovered at age 22 on the French Riviera by Gigi author, Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette – rarely took to the beach (or, indeed, the driving range) without her pristine ballet pumps, wide-brimmed hats and striped parasols to hand. 

Always immaculate and unfalteringly ladylike, Hepburn’s polished style will forever be linked to Hubert de Givenchy, with whom she collaborated on her costumes and personal wardrobe from her role in the 1954 romance Sabrina onwards. But her off-duty moments on holiday, larking around with her first husband Mel Ferrer, or nurturing her children, Luca and Sean, are where we see the style icon at her most relaxed and, dare we say, playful in the style department. 

Here, 16 Audrey Hepburn pictures that show no one perfected prim warm-weather dressing quite like the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star.
