A classic Cinderella story that still feels quite modern, Sabrina sees our heroine Audrey Hepburn in an assortment of rags to riches dresses. Starting out as a fresh faced young girl in simple clothes Sabrina comes back from Paris a well dressed woman.
Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe in Sabrina was originally to be designed by Paramount Studios’ legendary costume designer Edith Head but the young actress asked Director Billy Wilder if she could wear “a real Paris dress” in the film. Wilders wife suggested Audrey go to Balenciaga but when the young star turned up, the couturier was too busy see her and sent her to his young friend, Hubert de Givenchy. This became the start of Audrey's relationship with the up and coming fashion designer who was key to Audrey's fashion evolution. With a wardrobe designed by both Edith Head and Hubert de Givenchy, Sabrina became one of the most fashionable films of the time and made Audrey a major fashion icon.
From beautifully tailored Parisian ensembles to 50s swing dresses or casual capri pants Sabrina was always effortlessly chic.
In true Cinderella fashion Sabrina steals the show in a summery floral ball gown.
