Homage to Audrey

Joel and I played "The Newlywed Game" on New Year's Eve this year with a bunch of other couples. (I think we won, or took second place...either way, we did really well.)

One of the questions posed to the wives was "If you could be any celebrity, who would you be?"

I totally chose Audrey Hepburn. It doesn't matter that she's not really a current celebrity, or that she's not actually alive. If I could choose an era to live in, it would absolutely be the 40's. Love everything about it: the movies, the fashion, the music, etc.

Anyway, I was surprised that Joel answered that one correctly for me. (He does listen!)

I think Sophie must have a thing for Audrey, too. Remember those shoes that she steals all the time? The style is called Audrey. Obviously because they are totally Holly Golightly. And, of course, that's why I bought them.

So besides loving the Audrey shoes, this is how Sophie came out of my room the other day:

Wide headband: check. Audrey shoes: check. Fancy necklace: check. Simple, but elegant dress: check. Big sunglasses: check. Stylish bag (who says Dora isn't stylish?): check. Classic beauty: check.

Yep. I'd say she has the Audrey look down.


  1. SO cute!! Our daughters are about the same age (mine is turning 2 this month) and she does the exact same thing all the time. Love it!

  2. Don't you think it'd be a brilliant idea for us to do a forties-style photo shoot?! YOU as the subject. Start collecting stuff now. :)

    She looks adorable and fashionable.

  3. ohhhhh she's adorable.. my daughter LOVES Audrey as well!!!!!

  4. Thanks for the tribute. Seriously though, if I do have to share my name with someone famous, at least it's someone who was incredibly classy.

  5. I love this post and pic. I'm a huge fan of Audrey too. Breakfast at Tiffanys is one of my favorite movies.

  6. My husband and I played that game too. We gave the same answer as you did. that is so funny. Lara you have a gift that is a great picture.

  7. Oh, that is so adorable! I love how she dresses up constantly!
