After retracing Audrey Hepburn’s footsteps on a trip around Europe, New York native Chrisette Michele is meticulously prepping the release of her upcoming conceptual mixtape, ‘Audrey Hepburn: An Audiovisual Presentation‘, a project in honour of the iconic actress.
The second offering from the mixtape is ‘Rich Hipster‘, which features MMG’s own Wale. The project is set for a December 8th release as a free download.

The Single Cover Artwork
We’re proud to reveal the official single cover for Rich Hipster, shown above. Shot by celebrity and fashion photographer Derek Blanks with designs by Josh Dean, and inspired by the Hollywood legend, we find Chrisette posing à-la-Hepburn in front of a white heart set against a red backdrop along with the wordings scattered up top like stubs. Very apropos for the track and the Rich Hipster lifestyle.
The motto behind Rich Hipster is that we’re Rich in Heart, Rich in Art.— Chrisette
As we look closer at the cover artwork, we notice a B&W theme carried over from her first single ‘Charades‘. “A lot of the photos you’ll see are B&W because many of Audrey’s iconic photography were B&W,” Chrisette explains.
“All the artwork leading to the mixtape is in B&W even the videos. That’s a common theme throughout. I thought that was important if I was going to keep Audrey, because a lot of (the movies) we love the most were in B&W.”
Stay tuned for the official cover to ‘Audrey Hepburn: An Audiovisual Presentation‘ the Mixtape.
