Love in the Afternoon: The Wardrobe of Ariane Chavasse

Ariane Chavasse (Audrey Hepburn) rescues business magnate Frank Flannigan (Gary Cooper) from his own demise in Love in the Afternoon (1957). The daughter of private detective Claude Chavasse (Maurice Chevalier) leafs through her father’s infidelity cases with romantic, rose-colored glasses. She initially encounters the American Frank as the subject of a surveillance photograph taken by her father. A devoted cellist, the young French woman can be seen carrying her instrument in and out of the Ritz Paris. Here’s her wardrobe reimagined (cello included).

How to Steal a Million: Nicole Bonnet’s Wardrobe

Nicole Bonnet (Audrey Hepburn) is the stylish daughter of art forger Charles Bonnet (Hugh Griffith). She drives a little, red compact car and isn’t afraid of wearing all white or a boldly-lined eye. She and burglar Simon Dermott (Peter O’Toole) initially cross paths under rather impromptu circumstances in How to Steal a Million (1966). When they meet for the second time at the bar of the Ritz Paris, he orders a Scotch, and she follows suit.
