In The Mood For Some Audrey Hepburn?

I love Audrey Hepburn! I always have, ever since I was a little girl and lately I have been really enjoying watching all of her films. Talk about classics. There are three in particular which I have been itching to talk about on here. They are definitely my most favourite Audrey films and I fully recommend them to anyone who loves a good ol' classic.
1. Breakfast at Tiffany's
Even if you're not an Audrey Hepburn fan, I would be very surprised if you hadn't heard of this film. It's absolutely timeless and for good reason. It is the ultimate girly chick flick because it is full of sparkling jewels, romance, sophistication and class. I absolutely love the costume choices for Holly  Golightly. It really brings out my love for vintage and definitely makes me want to go vintage shopping, slip on the silkiest vintage robe, make a cup of tea, grab some chocolate and watch Breakfast at Tiffany's over and over again.
2. Sabrina
This is a newly discovered film of mine and I cant believe that I hadn't watched it before because it was exactly my cup of tea when it comes to old films. In a nutshell, Sabrina is a film about a young woman who has been in love with a man, David Larabee, whose father employs her own father as a chauffeur. She goes to culinary school in Paris and returns home as a more older and sophisticated woman and now catches the eye of David who previously never noticed her due to his crazy aristocratic nature. However, its not long before she soon begins to connect even more with his brother. You can see where this is going to go now, can't you? I'll leave the rest for you to find out. There is so much more that happens throughout the film but that is the main plot in a very brief paragraph.
3. My Fair Lady
I have to admit, this is my least favourite out of the three but it is still absolutely fantastic. The reason its my least favourite is probably because its running time is near enough three hours and I really don't like films that are longer than two. I am the most impatient person ever and couldn't possibly get through a three hour film unless and I really liked it. My Fair Lady is one of those lucky few, as well as Titanic of course. I would only suggest watching this if you have a lot of time to spare. It's definitely not a late night film because you can guarantee you wont be getting to bed until very, very late.. or early in the morning. I wont explain the plot because my blog post will be a lot longer than intended but the main gist is that it is a film about a young flower seller with a very strong Cockney accent. She decides to go to a Professor Henry Higgins who guides her through the principles of a persons prospects in society as her ambition is to work in a flower shop, but because of her accent, she is unable to do so as she does not fit the expectations.
