Kim Kardashian Channels Audrey Hepburn in Bangs and Beatnik Black

This might be the only time that Kim Kardashian would take you calling her “Funny Face” as a compliment. The reality star filmed an energy-drink ad in Miami channeling Audrey Hepburn’s character in the iconic 1956 film, from the piecey gamine bangs to the black turtleneck and cropped cigarette pants and Audrey’s signature bow-topped flats.

The simple Audrey-inspired look was a total 180° from her most recent Paris outfits (including two high-necked, long-sleeved, heavily embellished gowns for running errands) — besides being sleek and understated in her style, the sweet ponytail was a fun, girlie change for the normally super-glam star.

At first glance, Kim and Audrey might not have much in common, but the two stars do have one major connection: Givenchy. Hepburn was Hubert de Givenchy’s muse — the designer created some of her most iconic looks, from Funny Face to Sabrina to her famous black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. And Kim is a muse for current-day Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, who has lavishly complimented her, calling her “the new Marilyn Monroe” and said she was “the most beautiful pregnant woman I have dressed in my career” after last year’s Met Gala.

What do you think of these comparisons? Would you have compared Kim to Audrey? How’s she pulling off the look?

I honestly can not believe how horrible people are! seriously!
BULLIES all of you!!!! She is still a person with feelings. EVERY single article all you people just rip everyone apart! If you don’t like her don’t say anything!

Hepburn and Kardashian should not even be used in the same sentence…

Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, who has lavishly complimented her, calling her “the new Marilyn Monroe”.

That man must be blind. All Kim Kardashian is a world famous Ho with a pimp for a Mother!

She looks great & if she wants to go shopping dressed-up, good 4 her, in contrast to most women who dress like men now!

I know Audrey Hepburn, and she is no Audrey Hepburn.

Vacagran on

Audrey would be humiliated by such comparison.

Kristan on

PLEASE no comparisons to Audrey Hepburn. How about she looks like Dita Von Teese instead…..

I actually like this look on her, but to compare her to Audrey is quite a stretch. Audrey Hepburn was a picture of class. She was a role model. She was lady-like. Many things that I don’t think Kim Kardashian lives up to.

MrsG on

Audrey was a LADY. Kim, on the other hand…
