Audrey Hepburn Ditches Her Pearls For A More Casual Look (PHOTO)

We'll always think of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, wearing a demure LBD with a strand of pearls around her neck. Although the style icon popularized the long cigarette holder, classic updos and ankle-skimming pants, it was more than her fashion sense that garnered her international attention. Her delicate features, soothing voice and captivating nature put her front and center in films like "Funny Face," "Roman Holiday" and "Sabrina."

In this 1950s photograph we see the British starlet in a more laid-back look. Hepburn wears a short beige coat, showcasing her amazing gams and a pair of slip-on raffia sandals. Her oversized tote adds a nice pop of color and is also the perfect seaside accessory. She looks so good, we don't even miss her signature black sunnies.
