Books - Michelle Obama, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor

I found these three books on sale today & I pounced. Michelle Obama, Audrey Hepburn & Elizabeth Taylor. Three very different styles. Which one represents you?

Fabulous book on how Michelle Obama mixes high & low to create her own unique look which projects confidence and highlights her best features.

Includes details of her life and her earlier more conservative lawyer style.
Most of all, the book emphasizes that whist her style is integral to who she is, she doesnt let it take over & run her agenda.

A discussion on the cardigan whose status Michelle has single handedly raised to classic power item status.

A chapter on her love of bold florals - Warning - dont try this is you are petite!

This caught my eye - lovely classic look.

What do you think of this?
The event: 20 Summit, Pittsburgh 2009 with Carla Bruni, ex super model & now wife of the French President.
Which dress do you prefer for that event?


Whilst I am not a huge fan Elizabeth Taylor, contrary to her taste in husbands, her style is quite distinct and definite. I love that trait of certainty in a person.

I also liked that this book has some amazing photos of early Liz which show a very different style to her later years.

oohhh, look at this one......I adore polka dots! & it has a collar at the back....

Chic, chic, chic

Never seen a poncho look i liked - but this one is amazing!

I grew up in the these shots call out to me......

Love everything about this Ocsar dress

Another early shot in her pink dressing room

Another early promo, so young....& here style evolved quite dramatically during her career from cute/pretty/feminine to sexy/dramatic.


This book is made up entirely of photos of global magazine covers of Audrey Hepburn.

I love seeing the lesser known photos. But its also a treat to see the common photos being presented & styled differently depending on which country they are from. The country of origin is identified for each cover photos.

Interestingly, this book confirms that her style stayed true throughout her life.

Breakfast anyone? at Tiffanys of course.....

Lovely modelling shots!

Navy & white - totally classic (I adore nautical looks)

Au revoir! Until next time.....


  1. I love Audrey Hepburn's style the most, but my style is probably a combination of all 3. I even do bold florals even though I'm quite petite. I'm so happy to have found your blog! =)

  2. Welcome aboard Trish - thank you for the lovely comments. Make sure you go & like my Facebook page - for the moment, I tend to put things there more often than the blog as FB seems to reach more people....who do you like best from the modern Hollywood women? My faves are Jennifer Aniston (adore that minimal style), Kate Bosworth (interesting looks) & Diane Kruger (a couture queen).....let me know yours...
