Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, the Original 50’s Icons

May 29, 2011

Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly wait backstage to present at the 1956 Academy Awards. In a month, Kelly will marry Monaco's Prince Rainier and become Princess Grace.

There is little doubt that Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn reigned supreme as eternal 50s style icons. Both dominated the silver screen and garnered a plethora of awards for their stellar acting abilities.

When I think of the 1950s, I think of glamour, style and class, not only in the way women used to dress and look, their lifestyle as well. It was a period of real transition in fashion. The arrival of the “teenage cult” changed the fashion from a much disciplined style to the  more flexible 1950s glamour, and brought with it the defined waist line, the full and voluminous skirt, the tube-like pencil skirt and mid-heeled pumps. In addition to that, the detailing of the 1950s clothes was very intrinsic, with plenty of beading on the blouses and skirts.

It is a relief that 50’s fashion has never died. Today fashionistas such as Dita Von Teese, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Scarlett Johansson, all continue to channel that 50’s vibe.

Covelli Boutique was created to help you find that inner-50’s bombshell. Real vintage is often difficult to find and super expensive but that doesn’t mean you can’t replicate it and look just as good. The quality Covelli merchandise pays perpetual homage to that ultra stylish era by retailing authentic and flattering retro fashion.

Have a look at some rare but no less breathtaking pictures of both Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn in this slideshow:
