My style icon: Audrey Hepburn.

When I saw Audrey Hepburn gracing the cover of May's Vanity Fair issue, I literally squealed. Audrey Hepburn will always be my style icon - timeless, classy and so elegant. My favorite Audrey style era was in her post-movie-making years, when she lived in Italy. Photos from her son, Lucca Dotti's new book Audrey in Rome, show her dressed perfectly simple, dashing across the cobblestone streets of Rome. My favorite photo, shared in the Vanity Fair issue, is the one of her strolling on the street wearing a long peacoat, dog on leash. Some of her signatures accessories were pearls, a scarf tied around her neck and a basket purse. If Polyvore were my digital closet, this would be my Hepburn-spiration outfit. Oh the things I would do to have that Kate Spade picnic basket - of course, I would use it as a regular purse, just like Audrey would have.
