Our Bridal Muse: Audrey Hepburn As Jo Stockton

744ec9b79f1349494c51a9422b4bab57

As gorgeous as Audrey Hepburn’s own wedding gown was, there is something endearing and spellbinding about the dress she donned in Funny Face (1957), as Jo Stockton. Perhaps considered the quintessential short wedding dress, the simplicity and classic appeal of her character’s bridal costume cannot be denied.

The straight neckline, capped sleeve and dropped waistline are perfectly suited to Hepburn’s petite frame. The volume of the skirt does not disguise her tiny waist as it cleverly starts from the hips, and its tea-length hem is both practical and beautiful. It ends just at the lower calf, allowing her to dance and move, whilst still embodying gracefulness and soft femininity. The stunning photograph of Hepburn being spun into the air by her co-star Fred Astaire captures this feeling perfectly.

In terms of accessories, the look is quite minimal. The veil is light with a dotted texture, topped with a charming bow. It appears to be tucked in toward the back of the dress creating volume around the shoulders – a nice touch of drama around the face. The veil then flows down her back to the hem of the dress, however it looks particularly gorgeous when it is gathered around her arm. Pearl earrings, round-toe shoes with a low heel and plain white gloves complete the look.

The beauty style is representative of Hepburn’s signature look. Her enviable eyebrows are thick and dark, sitting atop dark lined eyes and finished with a soft rosy lip. Her hair is pulled back tightly, forming a bun to the back of the head which is hidden by the veil, emphasising her beautiful face without distraction.

Audrey Hepburn/Jo Stockton is inspiration for any bride lusting after a classic and minimal approach to bridal wear. She is particularly important for brides who are working with a petite frame, as everything in this look is working with Hepburn’s height and figure.
