Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy Eveningwear, 1963

Yesterday, we looked at Audrey Hepburn in daywear from Givenchy's line for Spring, 1963. Today, she wears evening gowns from the same collection. The wonderful and imaginative hair designs are by Alexandré. The first photo is one of my favorites of Audrey.

Hepburn poses with her husband Mel Ferrer in a pink tulle confection.
The tulle cocoons intricate beading and embroidery.
A gossamer white silk tulle stole adds another layer of fantasy.

Blue cloqué silk déshabillé that falls in loose folds to a slight train at the back.

White lace with appliqued mauve, pink, yellow and blue silk daisies, then beaded and embroidered in gilt thread and sequins. Don't you wish this photo was in color?

Vivid yellow silk shantung with woven-in dots. The strapless neckline blooms like a flower.

Pink cloqué silk wrapped gown that exposes a bit of leg in front and has a tiny train at back.

All photos by Bert Stern.

I completely agree with you Pseu. He was lucky to have her as a muse.

Great blog, I use it for inspiration sometimes as a reference for fashion illustration jobs.
A friend of mine is looking for a 20's cloche hat, I forwarded her the one you have but if you get anymore please email me asap, she needs it by Oct. 30th. Thanks.

Will do, David, but it's not likely I'll get more by then. I'll be on vacation for the first 1/2 of October.

I love these. The clothes just are fluid on her.

Elegant clothes for an elegant woman.
