Need a little Audrey in your life?

No Comments 31 December 2006

Or home? If you’ve been poster shopping before, then you know it’s not hard to find an Audrey Hepburn poster. But why are some of them so expensive? There should be no reason, and Bare Walls seems to think so, too. I stumbled across them last night and found a fantastic collection of posters, many being foreign posters that aren’t seen as much (at least in the U.S.), and the average price is $16.95! And, unlike most poster websites, you can view much larger versions of the poster watermark-free. They also offer oversized glossies of Audrey as well, and most shots are the more rare photos, like Audrey in her very early modeling days. It’s nice to find lesser-known photos of her — and it’ll impress your friends even more. 🙂

So I wasn’t able to find an Audrey calendar the other day. And on Amazon all calendars “ship in 4-6 weeks.” By then January will be over! But while I couldn’t find any Audrey calendars, I did stumble across some other excellent calendars you might be interested in.

Je suis désolé, es tut mir leid, I am so sorry about taking so long with the contest! I won’t waste your time with excuses, so I’ll just get straight to it an announce the winners of the December contest. Second prize is a copy of the new Taschen Icons book on Audrey, and was won by Amy! First prize is a copy of the new special edition of “Gardens of the World,” and has been won by Rosana! Ladies, please check your email so we can ship off your wonderful new prizes. And since the drawing was delayed until after the holidays, if you’ve received your prizes from someone else in the meantime, we’ll work out some other prize you don’t have. 🙂

the after-Christmas clean up

No Comments 26 December 2006

Well, I hope everyone had a good holiday, or is currently having a great holiday with Boxing Day or Kwanzaa! It’s nice to just sit back and relax for a bit, isn’t it? And eat too much, of course. 😉 I also hope you had a good, Audrey-filled holiday! But if you didn’t get a certain thing you wanted, don’t worry. Amazon always has low prices and ships pretty fast, so your after the holiday goodies can still get to you before the post-holiday blues really set in. Personally, I didn’t get a calendar, so I’m off to find one today. How could you not have an Audrey calendar when there’s so many to choose from?

Merry Christmas!


And for a little Audrey-related holiday goodness, you can watch “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” here! It’s narrarated by her Funny Face co-star Fred Astaire and features Breakfast at Tiffany’s co-star Mickey Rooney as well.

a new Audrey Hepburn auction!

No Comments 24 December 2006

While not nearly as exciting as the recent Christie’s auction of Audrey’s classic Little Black Dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, there will be a new auction of Audrey memorabilia coming at the end of January 2007. This auction is of Audrey’s contract to appear in Two For the Road, and is part of a large batch of celebrity contracts and memos to benefit the Motion Picture and Television Fund, an insurance fund for artists. While the website for the auction house, Swann Auction Galleries, has some scans of other documents, there doesn’t seem to be any available of Audrey’s contract. I did, however, sign up for a PIN number, so if I see anything, you will. 🙂 You can learn more about the auction and some other articles up for sale here.

affordable Audrey style — and are the new Wayfarers out already?

No Comments 22 December 2006

News is still very slow here — is everyone on vacation but me? But there is a new boutique in Palo Alto, California, which has a very prominent Audrey style. While their website is still pretty bare bones for now, Vian Hunter is already making a name for themselves with their affordable, chic women’s clothes. There’s even an LBD (that’s little black dress, for those of you who might be out of touch) named the Audrey! If you live nearby and stop in for a peek, you might even catch a glimpse of Audrey herself — rather, a film of hers playing. And to make up for the website still being under construction, they have a printable colouring book with their designs to download, completely free.

The episode of “CSI: New York” with the larcenous trio of Holly Golightlys is airing again tonight! Catch it on your local CBS affiliate. (I was going to post a clip from that episode here as a teaser, but it’s been taken down.)

slow going in Audrey Hepburnland

No Comments 19 December 2006

I apologize for the lack of updates here lately, but there really is no news to report. Whatever does come in has already been covered here, and I’ve pulled out pretty much all of the older things I could rehash. So sorry again that we haven’t had much, but I’d rather be silent than give in to the junk that’s out there.
