Audrey Hepburn’s My Fair Lady Ascot dress sold – again

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn’s My Fair Lady Ascot dress sold – again 22 June 2011

It was nearly 10 years ago that I went to a nondescript building in Beverly Hills and got to see Audrey Hepburn’s iconic black and white Ascot races dress from My Fair Lady before it was sold at auction for $100,000. (The hat was included as well.) I even got to take a picture with it! Back then, it was sold to a man who had grand ideas to open up his own memorabilia museum.

Limited edition art for a good cause

1 Comment 16 June 2011

I’m well aware of the fact that you all love the illustrations for Just Being Audrey by now. How could you not love Julia Denos’s adorable drawings of a rosy-cheeked Audrey? Well, if you own the book but would like something more, maybe something worth framing or sending off to friends, Julia has just opened a shop with limited edition prints, both of illustrations from the book and never before seen drawings, plus a darling set of greeting cards. The prints are $50-150, while the note cards are more affordable at $25, but with all of these, proceeds go to the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund. Isn’t that great? You get something you love, you support an artist, and children in need are helped as well. Everybody wins.

Let’s bring Mayerling back to life!

1 Comment 15 June 2011

For those of you that don’t know, in 1957 Audrey Hepburn and husband Mel Ferrer starred in a television adaptation of the popular story Mayerling, about a prince and his ill-fated love affair. It was part of the Producers’ Showcase series, and as far as I know it was never officially released on home video to own.

Keira still shadowing Audrey

2 Comments 19 May 2011

I just happened to hear about this by accident, but apparently Keira Knightley has been performing in a West End production of The Children’s Hour – taking on Audrey Hepburn’s old role of Karen Wright. The show opened around the end of January and I’m not sure how much longer it will be around, but Keira has been getting mixed reviews. Mainly upbeat, though the Daily Mail says there’s still room for improvement.

You may remember that Keira was in serious talks to star in a film remake of My Fair Lady before it fell through, and that the remake is still in development. This is twice now that Keira has wanted to recreate an Audrey Hepburn film role, and her first time actually doing it. Any thoughts on her choices in this regard?

Happy birthday, dear Audrey!

2 Comments 05 May 2011

If you didn’t already know, today is Audrey Hepburn’s birthday! If she was still with us she would have been 82 years old today, but you know what? Audrey is still very much with us. Her influence is as strong as ever, she’s as popular as ever, and everyone still wants to be her.

To celebrate the fairest lady’s birthday, WatchMojo put together a video tutorial on how to get Audrey’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s look in makeup:

So if you would like to celebrate Audrey’s birthday but don’t quite know what to do, why not give yourself a little makeover and pop in one of her films? To make it extra Audrey, indulge with a piece of chocolate, Audrey’s favourite treat. Remember a lovely person by making yourself feel beautiful.

Special thanks to Stephanie for sharing this link with us.

check your email!

Comments Off on check your email! 03 May 2011

Finally, after much deliberation (and some sweet agony), my lovely assistant and I have chosen the three lucky people to win a free copy of Just Being Audrey. So check your email!

If you weren’t selected in this contest … please don’t take it personally, or think anything badly about your entry. They were all good, and they were all taken to heart and thought over carefully. It was extremely difficult to just choose three out of so many quality entries, and if I had the funds, I would definitely have sent every single one of you a book. Rest assured, if I ever win the lottery, I will split the funds between you lovely people and UNICEF. 🙂

But fear not, because there will always be more contests! Thank you again to every single person who entered and shared such wonderful memories and thoughts, and please know that all of you touched our hearts with your letters. Audrey has the best fans.

Special thanks again and again to Kath for all of her help during this contest.

apologies for the delay

Comments Off on apologies for the delay 19 April 2011

Hello, I just wanted to check in with you all and assure you that no, I have not forgotten the contest! I know I had said that the three winners would be announced shortly but I really hadn’t expected so many astounding entries. To be completely honest with you, I needed an assistant to help me narrow down the results and we’re still having trouble getting it down to just three! Your entries were so touching and wonderful, all of them, that it is agony to try and cut it down. If I had the funds, rest assured that all of you would be getting a book! As it is, we are aiming to have the final three chosen in the coming week. I know you hate waiting, but know that it’s because your entries were all so wonderful and that we are taking every single letter to heart.

Just Being Audrey giveaway contest!

Comments Off on Just Being Audrey giveaway contest! 19 March 2011

You’ve waited long enough, now here it is: I will be giving away three (3) copies of the gorgeous children’s picture book Just Being Audrey. Highly acclaimed and already deeply loved, this book is short and sweet and beautifully written. Designed for children but accessible to all, the book gives a lovely summary of Audrey’s life, from la petite ballerina in Holland to the trendsetting Hollywood icon to the UNICEF ambassador, all illustrated with divine full color (and often full page) drawings.
