Many Hen's chose to have themed hen parties, and here at HenorStag.com we love to hear all about your stylish hen events! 

Audrey Hepburn has always been a style icon for me, from "Charade" to "My Fair Lady" she always looks timeless and immaculate, but is probably best known for her role as "Holly Golightly" in "Breakfast At Tiffany's" cementing the LBD (Little Black Dress) as the ultimate in style and becoming a true style icon!
 
We were therefore extremely pleased when newly married Mrs Claire Marie Cureton (maiden name McKiernan) chose to share with us her wonderful photographs from her chic and über stylish "Audrey Hepburn" themed hen party!


 
Claire Marie decided to travel with her hen party to Wexford for a summer hen weekend. They had 3 different themes during the hen weekend (1) "Australia" as her husband-to-be was from Australia (2) Retro 80's as she was born in the 1980's and then (3) her Audrey Hepburn party!

Claire Marie has always been a fan of Audrey Hepburn and loves her glamour, so it was the obvious choice as a hen party theme!  Her summer hen weekend included a vintage tea party with cup cake decorating in the Fitzwilton Hotel, Waterford. Commenting on choosing the Audrey Theme she said:  "I would highly recommend the Audrey Hepburn theme, it's very classy and we had great fun with it."

For anyone wanting to have a similarly themed hen party, think refinement and glamour......cakes and pearls and you won't go far wrong!
 
Claire Marie was married over the Summer to her Australian husband Michael Cureton in Cabra Castle Hotel, Cavan. The stag celebrated his last weekend of freedom in Dublin.
 
As the bride to be, Claire Marie opted for a classic off white 'A' line dress, while her sister Patrice McKiernan went for the classic LBD! Both ladies perfectly encapsulating the classic Hepburn style!

If you want a similar hen party look, then why not try these dresses from Karen Millen and Oasis! The key to the look is simplicity. Audrey favoured classic silhouette's in block colours and kept accessories to a minimum (except for her pearls and sunglasses of course!). Keep your look chic and classic and you won't go far wrong!
 
While Audrey was best known for her classic white pearl look, why not modernise the look with a cluster pearl necklace? This version from Oasis is perfect, with it's different pearl colour tones and edgy chiffon neck tie, it still retains an "Audrey" feel whilst giving the ensemble a modernised feel!
 
So as Ms Hepburn would say.........why not give the look a go darling!!
