Happy 2007!

No Comments 01 January 2007

Happy New Year, everyone! First of all, a very big thank you to everyone for making 2006 such a great year. A lot of people also called 2006 The Year of Audrey, but maybe we can make 2007 an even bigger year for her. Personally, I’m going to start the year off right by watching a great Audrey Hepburn Double Feature. 🙂 I can’t wait to see what this year will bring!

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.

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.

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.

Very Irrésistible

No Comments 14 December 2006

I’m a little bored right now, so I’ve been scanning haute couture websites to see what I can find. Once in a while I’ll stop by the Givenchy website to see how things are going, and I’ve found the Very Irrésistible fragrance line. I believe it’s fairly new, since products in its range are still coming out, but it’s worth noting because this fragrance was created to mark Givenchy’s return to their roots: namely, the relationship between Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn, and how together they made an image. I haven’t sniffed it yet, since the fragrance section of department stores always make me nervous, but this fragrance does contain star anise and a specially cultivated Liv Tyler rose. Here’s the full copy for Very Irrésistible:

Audrey Hepburn: The Model of Style and Desire

No Comments 10 December 2006

News is pretty slow today. Real slow, in fact. So I’m afraid I only have one thing to share, but it’s a very excellent article. It starts off talking about the Christie’s auction, and how the bidding frenzy and record-breaking price showed that the allure of Audrey is still going strong 13 years after she left us, and gives an excellent biography as well. To read the whole article, click here. (It’s a bit long, but well worth the read.) There’s one error, though: towards the end the author goofs and lists Sean Ferrer as Audrey’s husband. Please, no Oedipus references.

difficulties?

No Comments 03 December 2006

I believe that the server hosting fabaudrey.com is having difficulties right now. I can’t pull up their site or log in, and Fab Audrey itself isn’t showing up. The pictures on this blog hosted on Fab Audrey aren’t showing up either, so if you’re having problems, don’t worry, it’s not you. And it’s not us. 😉 Hopefully everything will be fixed soon, so just hang in there!

vintage Audrey, more Little Black Dress, and making your dreams come true

No Comments 03 December 2006

From the ever resourceful Audrey Hepburn Circle comes yet another great find: Time Magazine’s first ever article on Audrey! 53 years ago, a then unknown actress was put on the cover of Time. It was the first — and only — time an actor had ever been featured on the cover before even one feature film of theirs had been released. That unknown was Audrey Hepburn, and you can read the entire article here. It’s an exceptional article and has a surprisingly detailed biography on her as well. You almost don’t need to read a book on her after reading this!
