‘Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon’ – The National Portrait Gallery

July 2nd to October 18th the National Portrait Gallery are exhibiting, Audrey Hepburn Portraits of an Icon. The exhibition illustrates the life of one of the world’s most recognisable actresses, stars and fashion icons. Alongside images from her post film career including a UNICEF ambassadorship and her presidential medal, plus her childhood years too.

Hepburn is known and loved for her effortless, elegant, chic and refined style. A way of dressing that is synonymous with the clothes and pieces that you will find both online and in store with us at Beulah.

We have created an Audrey Hepburn inspired edit of our favourite Beulah pieces. Taking inspiration from her early years as a Hollywood starlet with a chic Parisian style, to help you inject a little of that Audrey look into your wardrobe whatever the season or occasion.

TrousersEven on a casual day Audrey’s style is still classic, sophisticated and refined. Our Cleo navy trousers paired with our silk Radiance Tee in Ivory embody that chic but simple look that Audrey epitomised on her days off.

Pink Dress

Hepburn is often considered the embodiment of the classic 50’s style. If you want to take a more modern approach to this look our Tulip dress in dusky pink gives a similarly structured style with a strong tulip skirt without the classic volume. If a more traditional take on the iconic 50’s look is what you’re after, our Veil skirt in blush pink allows for a striking yet refined outfit with all the volume that a 1950’s skirt is famous for. But this is paired with the more contemporary blush pink colour for the modern woman.


Audrey loved a classic structured style, and if this is something that you love too then our Elina dress is perfect. This dress comes in both mint and light pink, and is lightly structured for a more contemporary update but still contains the lady like feel that Audrey exuded. Elina is also a great piece to transition from day to night, wear it like Audrey in the day with flats and sunglasses or in the evening with heels and a dainty clutch bag.

fun dress

If a more fun and girlie Hepburn look is what inspires you, our Ines dress in dusty pink is exactly what you need. The pink colouring embodies Audrey’s timeless femininity and the notch neck brings a subtle modernity to the look. Ines is fitted, slightly moving away from the traditional look that Hepburn championed but still bringing her fun, cute style to any outfit.

evening wear dressFor a Hepburn evening wear look our Painted Lady gown in navy is a perfect match, full of the classic elegance that Audrey always carried. The darker colour palette of the dresses again emphasises the sophistication of both Hepburn and our Painted Lady gown, amazing for any evening or formal event.
