Last weekend I went to see the Hubert de Givenchy exhibition in the community museum (Gemeentemuseum) in my hometown The Hague. This expo is a tribute to the lovely Audrey Hepburn.
I am more inspired by Audrey then I am by Givenchy, but I admire the impact he had on her. One of my favorite movies of all time is also one of hers – Breakfast at Tiffany’s it is. Which is also my favorite jeweler.
As i walked through the museum I was amazed by the garment that was displayed. All designed by Hubert de Givenchy and you could really see the luxury of it. Audrey once said that she is most comfortable in Givenchy’s clothing and I could imagine why. The dresses do not only look glamorous but also comfortable and I find that the most important when wearing an item. I could see myself wearing these dresses and going to parties in them. *sigh..then I woke up. Even though these dresses were made like 50-70 years ago, you could still wear them now in 2017. Speaking of timeless pieces. You can see that Givenchy has put up a lot of effort to make this exhibition look wonderful. I see real art in them and they take you back to time of Audrey.
Not only are Audrey’s Dutch roots something we have in common but she also did volunteering work for Unicef like I do. As a matter of fact, she was an ambassador for a couple of years. Even when she was older she still looked good and had this classical beauty while taking care of children.
I love the way Adurey dressed, spoke and the actress she was. I love her movies and I am inspired by her positive words. Here are some wise words from her.
Of course there were a lot more beautiful things to adore in this exhibition, but you have to experience it yourself. If you are visiting The Hague you must see this exhibition. You have the chance see the expo until the 26th of March 2017 at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague. It is based in a lovely neighborhood which you will be inspired by too! And once you are in the museum, do not forget to take your photo-boot pictures!
