Audrey Hepburn has long been recognized as a film icon, as well as a fashion icon. Audrey Hepburn’s classic style was elegant and feminine. Making her mark in the film world, Hepburn was the first actress to win an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA for a single role in a film. That film was 1952’s Roman Holiday, which aided in establishing her career as a film star. She continued to grace the silver screen with her presence in performances in films such as My Fair Lady, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Sabrina. As of August 17, a new exhibition of Audrey Hepburn photographs are on display from Beyond the Screen, an exhibition showing at London’s Proud Central gallery. The photos showcase the actress with some of her iconic fashion statements.
Audrey Hepburn’s Classic Style Pieces
The Hepburn photos in the Beyond the Screen exhibition were taken by Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson, and Bob Willoughby, to name a few. The pieces of note? Oversized white sunglasses, cable knit jumpers, Beatnik coats, little pink dresses, and men’s white collared shirts. These 1950s-60s styles are classics thanks to the subtle grace with which the actress wore them. Other female stars of the time contributed to new trends, such as Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly. But Hepburn arguably holds her own unique spot as a past trendsetter.

Do you remember Veronica Mars? Who could forget Kristen Bell’s snarky portrayal of the female detective? Many of the fans can’t. Veronica Mars ran for three seasons on UPN and The CW networks. Despite the show’s cancellation back in 2007, many fans have felt that the show should have continued. The fans aren’t the only ones, either. The series creator Rob Thomas wants a ‘Veronica Mars’ reboot, and apparently, so does Kristen Bell.

In a recent interview with E! News, Thomas stated that he and Kristen are both “hopeful” and remain “very into” the idea of reviving the show. The two creatives have both expressed their love for the series. Fans have done so as well, as they partially funded the 2014 Veronica Mars movie. Displaying a positive outlook, Thomas knows exactly what he wants the reboot of Veronica Mars to focus on if it comes to fruition. The “kick-ass mystery” is what the show should be all about, he claims. “I want to make Veronica the first name in female detectives,” Rob asserts. But he also makes it clear that if he can’t do the show with Kristen Bell, the show may not happen at all.
“I can’t imagine doing it without Kristen in my professional lifetime. I mean, never say never, but I think if I’m not doing it with Kristen, it means that Kristen no longer wants to do it. And Kristen has said she’s willing to do it until it’s ‘Murder, She Wrote.’ As long as she holds to that, then I think I want to keep doing the Kristen Bell version, if there’s an opportunity.”
Unfortunately, there is nothing set in motion just yet, but with Thomas and Bell both strongly set on the idea, a reboot may be in the foreseeable future.
Drew Barrymore’s makeup line, Flower Beauty, was founded in 2012. In the beginning it was exclusively sold online and at Walmart. However, the expansion of sales didn’t halt there. Back in February of this year, Flower Beauty products appeared in Ulta stores across the U.S. Barrymore herself is a fan of cosmetics and beauty products, including hair care, and rather a guru of beauty. Though Flower Beauty has been around for a few years, perhaps some of you haven’t heard of the affordable brand. Flower Beauty has just about every basic product you need. The line also sells hair styling tools and fragrances, so Barrymore doesn’t just stop at makeup.
Drew Barrymore’s Makeup Line Flower Beauty is Great for Girls on the Go
Flower Beauty’s products are easily portable, so if you’re constantly lugging makeup around with you to freshen up in the office, or if you’re running late and have to resort to doing your makeup in the parking lot, no sweat. The best part about this product line is the surprising quality at such a low price. All of Flower Beauty’s products (aside from the hair styling tools) are under $20. If you’re a self-proclaimed makeup addict looking for products that perform well and aren’t very expensive, then Flower Beauty is going to be your new best friend.
Best Values from Flower Beauty
Flower Beauty sells a moisturizing primer called In Your Prime that conditions the skin while priming for around $13 at Ulta. It’s incredibly difficult to find a good primer at a low price, especially one that does what it promises.
Petal Pout Lip Color is a great choice if you’re looking for a lipstick that’s smooth and condition while giving you a nice all-day-wear. It’s available in over twenty shades, including matte options and cream finishes. Plus Petal Pout runs anywhere from $6-9, which is a low enough price to stock up on multiple shades.
The Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette from Flower Beauty is available at Ulta for $16. Like the other products in Flower’s line, it doesn’t disappoint. The formula is surprisingly creamy and lightweight, and it blends like a dream.

Back in 2015, Drew Barrymore sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for an interview and gushed about the success of her line.
I’m most proud of the price point we have managed to achieve with the formulas and materials we work with. It’s an almost impossible endeavor and it’s not something that people might know or understand or think about as a consumer. Our customer reviews are like, flawless — it’s amazing. Across the board people are very happy and I’m so relieved about that because you are surprised and amazed at the level of quality when you try the products.
It’s true. These products will surprise you both in price and quality. They’re a great everyday go-to for twenty-somethings who need to watch what they spend, but know what good quality makeup is all about.
