Today’s Chic Vintage Bride wore not one but two of my favourite bridal fashions – a Floral Crown with which I still have a mini obsession (the more I see of them the more I love them) and a tea length wedding dress!

She is the absolute epitome of chic and almost 60 years after she danced onto the silver screen in Roman Holiday she remains a style icon and a much loved actress……

Audrey Hepburn 1954 Balmain Tea Length Wedding Dress

Audrey Hepburn married Mel Ferrer in 1954, wearing a Balmain dress that with its tiny waist, wide sleeves and full skirt, was simultaneously of the moment and utterly timeless.

I love that her gown accentuates her curves and compliments her petite frame, whilst her floral crown flatters her dainty features and elfin hair cut.

For her second marriage to Andrea Dotti, the ever fashionable Audrey wore a hot pink mini dress with matching head scarf – the lady truly was just too cool!
