Fashionable Friday : Audrey's Roman Holiday

When in Rome, do as Romans do.  Or Audrey Hepburn.  I know which I'd pick.

Today's fashion & fluffballs illustration is inspired by Roman Holiday, a romantic comedy starring Gregory Peck and Audrey in her first film role.  A timeless classic blessedly conceived before the term romcom was coined, though if Audrey and Gregory had been an item, it might have rather lovely seeing photos of Peckburn out and about on the town.

When doing my scant research in an endeavour to earn my librarianish spectacles, I happened upon this very adorable clip on YouTube showing Audrey's first screen test for Roman Holiday, along with a commentary describing her fetching charms.  How true it was.  



So come, let us choose our respectively favourite gelato by the Spanish Steps, wander further askance to toss three coins in a fountain ~ and mix movies along with our metaphors.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you!

    1. I'm glad I lucked into one of your favourites, Michelle !! So delightful and Audrey is such a 'pixie' as the trailers pointed out. ;) Have a beautiful weekend, bella.

  2. That clip is a find! I haven't seen the movie in ages. I'll have to find it.

  3. I really enjoyed that clip. Audrey was so slim … such a little waist! And I learnt a new English word “romcom” – I had never heard it before. But, of course, I am not a millennial and not “au courant” !

    1. Wasn't she tiny, Vagabonde ... part elf, I'm convinced. I'm glad I could introduce you to a new word. I make them up inadvertently sometimes but this one I can reassure you is real. ;)
