Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, The Merry Widow, and Belle Epoque

In the 1964 film version of My Fair Lady, Audrey Hepburn stunned as Cockney flower girl turned "lady" Eliza Doolittle when she appeared at the Ascot Racecourse in an impeccable outfit covered in lace, ribbons, and frills with an enormous matching feathered hat designed by none other than Sir Cecil Beaton. The hat's very magnificence managed to awe those around her and properly camouflage Doolittle among the ranks of high society — until she relapsed into her Cockney accent while getting overeager at the horse race.
