Travelling in style [redux -- MR on holiday]

12.8.09

Today, as I am driving to Paris, I was thinking of one of my favourite films, Two for the Road by Stanley Donen, starring Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney. I have rarely seen movies depicting so well love & marriage and how people deal with the ups & downs. It is also quite pleasant to see Audrey Hepburn in a role that is slightly different from the characters she normally plays. Let's say a more ''natural'' role. But my point wasn't to go on and on about this film, but to have a look at Audrey's style in the movie.





It is interesting because she ages in the movie and you can see her evolving style. If I had enough photos of me in my early 20s, I'd quite like to be able to see my style evolve and try to predict what I will dress like in my 40s or 50s.
Also, what I love about this film, and what made me think about it today, is her choice of travel outfits. A bit Jane Birkin, very Audrey Hepburn (obviously), practical, stylish without ever being over the top. A hard thing to achieve in my opinion, especially when it is time to hit the road!

What is your favourite travel outfit?
