Who do you think influenced style and fashion of today? Audrey Hepburn perfected the capri pants and ballet slippers look. Her dress in Breakfast At Tiffany's was the perfect Little Black Dress. Coco Chanel accidentally made tanned skin popular. In 1923, she took a cruise from Paris to Cannes. Stepping off the yacht, she had a suntan because she had gotten too much sun. It was accidental, but the media took to it like she was making a fashion statement. I think it was Chanel that once said before leaving the house, take off one accessory. That way, you know you won't be overdressed. Marilyn Monroe was sexy. She was once asked what she wore to bed, and she replied, "Chanel No. 5." She was the type of person who would look amazing in anything from evening gowns to jeans.
