STEAL THEIR STYLE: AUDREY HEPBURN, GRETA GARBO, AND LOUISE BROOKS

I often like to imagine what my favorite old movie stars would wear today if they were still alive and in their youthful prime. Numerous questions beg to be asked, such as:

Would Audrey Hepburn wear skinny jeans?
Would Greta Garbo be able to exude a sense of sultry glamour with modern styles?
Would Louise Brooks look just as dark and mysterious now as in her heyday?

These outfits are my own more modern interpretation of these beloved screen sirens’ looks, but which also include the essentials that made them the style icons they are today:
