A little Audrey inspiration for you

No Comments 11 June 2008

I’ve been catching up with the guestbook entries, and there are so many sweet and lovely entries! I’m so glad the site makes so many people happy, helps them remember a wonderful woman, and helps newer generations discover her for themselves. While us girls may sigh once in a while, wishing we could look more like Audrey, someone by the name of Just Me has a perfect way of saying “Stay you”:

Trick-or-treat for UNICEF

No Comments 29 September 2007

The “How to be Audrey Hepburn/Holly Golightly for Hallween” article has been doing so well, but I thought of something that could be added to it. What if, instead of carrying a chic black purse with your smashing costume, you carried a little orange box instead? It might not look as pretty, but by trick-or-treating for UNICEF you would not only be looking like Audrey, but acting like her as well. You wouldn’t have to collect a lot, because every little bit helps, and you can also get your friends in on it with you by going to UNICEF’s site and ordering boxes for the whole group. You create your own fundraiser, be it by trick-or-treating, a bake sale, a car wash, a haunted house, whatever you can think of! Then UNICEF will send you your little boxes. You collect change for them and mail the money back, and you’ve just made a child’s life better. It really doesn’t get any easier than that, especially if you would like to be more involved in charitable acts but don’t have a lot of time or money (or both).

Goodbye, José; please learn by example

No Comments 09 September 2007

As many of you might know by now, last week José Luis de Vilallonga died at age 83. Jose was known in the Audrey Hepburn world as the man who played the dashing Brazilian boyfriend of Holly Golightly, José da Silva Pereira. José was a man of many talents, though, as he was also an author and a highly respected aristocrat, writing as a journalist and publishing the official biography of King Juan Carlos of Spain. You can read more about José’s fascinating life here.

Audrey Hepburn cancer awareness

No Comments 27 April 2007

A couple of days ago, I received a letter from a doctor in India about Audrey. An introduction isn’t really necessary, so here is the letter in full:

Hello,
There is something common in our interest..like Audrey Hepburn. I am always the Fan of Lady Audrey Hepburn. Great charity is done by Hepburn team.

Natalie Portman is Audrey’s "clone," but Audrey was a Martian anyway

3 Comments 09 October 2006

I’ve seen these articles come into my inbox quite a few times now, so I thought I’d share. Apparently Natalie Portman wearing Audrey’s dress is a big deal, leading many to call her our generation’s Audrey Hepburn and Audrey’s clone. Unlike some starlets, Natalie has openly admitted that she could never fill Audrey’s shoes and doesn’t even want to try, which is nice and refreshing and really what people need to hear. She has also said she would never play Audrey in a biopic, so get that idea out of your head. Audrey clone or not though, we could do a lot worse on role models for young women. To view the article, click here.
