Tyra Banks channels Audrey Hepburn for Vanity Fair

1 Comment 08 January 2007

For the February 2007 issue of Vanity Fair, model/talkshow host Tyra Banks did some Holly Golightly-inspired photos. Although cheating by using the Rodeo Drive Tiffany & Co. instead of the New York location, the pictures are still quite nice (and you can’t really tell), and she looks tres cute.

A Weekend With Audrey Hepburn

1 Comment 07 January 2007

Thanks to quissuer711 at the Audrey Hepburn Circle, there’s a fantastic “new” story about spending the weekend with Audrey. Apparently way back in 1951, before anyone really knew the name Audrey Hepburn, a scientist was asked to entertain a friend’s house guest, the guest being none other than Audrey. The two became chummy and kept in touch over the years, and I won’t ruin any more for you. Read the whole story here and judge for yourself how you like this story.

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

Comments Off on slow going in Audrey Hepburnland 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.

Audrey at a theatre near you; Edie Sedgwick and stencils

Comments Off on Audrey at a theatre near you; Edie Sedgwick and stencils 15 December 2006

First up, a few theatres in America have been publishing their upcoming attractions on line and making it into Google news, so you might be able to catch Audrey on the silver screen soon!

San Diego’s recently renovated North Park Theatre will be running a film festival called “Fabulous Faces of the Fifties.” Audrey is, of course, one of those fabulous faces, and if you’re in the area, Roman Holiday will be playing January 11-14. For more information, go here.

UNICEF, pearls, and the lasting power of Audrey Hepburn

Comments Off on UNICEF, pearls, and the lasting power of Audrey Hepburn 27 November 2006

There’s a really excellent article about UNICEF and the trials and tribulations of charities in the Guardian today. We’ve been seeing more and more articles popping up lately talking about the celebrity charity drive and how it can actually hurt charities more than help them, and this article lists some of UNICEF’s more recent issues with its image and its partnerships. It also talks about certain big labels doing two-faced work by making their clothes via Third World sweatshops, yet launching conscientious items or lines to raise money for Third World citizens. *cough* Gap Red! *cough* It of course mentions Audrey’s work and how she sort of started the celebrity spokesperson trend (though really the credit should go to Danny Kaye, who worked for 40 years as a Goodwill Ambassador and got Audrey involved), and how there are special classes celebrities take now to learn about charities and become spokespeople. Classes. It all seems very strange. Still, I highly recommend reading the whole article.

The Audrey Hepburn daylily, humanitarianism, and more

Comments Off on The Audrey Hepburn daylily, humanitarianism, and more 15 November 2006

A lot of random stuff today, just from wandering around the web. You’d think I never left the house on my days off! But first, a new page for the website. Now if you go to the index page and click on the “je ne sais quoi” graphic, it’ll take you to a new page. This page was made for anyone and everyone to talk about Audrey in their own languages, along with posting their favourite picture of her. It was always my plan to have a multilingual site, and I’ll work on it more once the english section is firmly entrenched, but for now there’s at least some place to express yourself in whatever language you like. Hopefully other non-English speakers will come and enjoy your thoughts, and you might be responsible for making a new Audrey fan! To see the new page, click here.

I received an email from Ellen Erwin, the Executive Director of the Children’s Fund this morning. Since it’s short, I’ll just copy and paste it for everyone to read:

Just to let you know, the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund website has been recently updated and we are redesigning a brand new flash website for launch next year. Thanks for the mention on your website. Will you let your visitors know that our website is current? Thanks so much and best regards

Isn’t that great? I can’t wait to see how it will change. And maybe they’ll post a full schedule of the exhibit’s tour in Europe . . .

a verdict on Harper’s, a hint at the next photo gallery

Comments Off on a verdict on Harper’s, a hint at the next photo gallery 10 November 2006

There’s an article critiquing the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar (the one with Natalie Portman in Audrey’s dress) here. While the author says good things about the dress and Natalie’s short article, she doesn’t much care for the rest of the magazine. The reason? The women in it are too thin. Thankfully, she doesn’t cast blame with Audrey, but still, it’s a glossy fashion magazine — what were you expecting?

We also have a new submission to the lookalikes page, which you can see here. Don’t forget that the lookalikes is totally run by you, the fans, and I don’t submit any of my own. So if you know of an actress or other well-known person that resembles Audrey, send your suggestions to us! There may be voting on the lookalikes soon, to rate which ones look the most like Audrey . . .

Harper’s Bazaar scans

Comments Off on Harper’s Bazaar scans 05 November 2006

It turns out the drugstore up the street does carry Harper’s, along with other chi-chi magazines you wouldn’t expect next to trashy romance novels. I decided to flip through the November Natalie issue real quick just to see what all was in it, and I found an extra little article that no one seems to have mentioned. So I suffered and bought the magazine just to razor out the pages and scan it for everybody. Actually, it wasn’t all that bad at $3.99 — I think Mad Magazine nearly costs that now, and it’s about a quarter the size of Harper’s. And now you all know that I read Mad on a regular basis. Right.
