Throwback to the Future

In collaboration with Rockingham Shopping Centre, myself and five other bloggers were asked to style an outfit based on an iconic fashion image.

The image I chose was of Audrey Hepburn on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Magazine US from May 1957. Photographed by Richard Avedon, Hepburn is captured in front of the camera mid-dance pose in the iconic trench, white jeans and hat. I love how playful the shot is, showing the cheeky nature of Audrey and the dancer within.
