Chick flicks, lookalikes, and the LBD

No Comments 01 December 2006

Thank you all for your patience. I appreciate it!

First up, the lovely Lotta has sent us a great find. It seems that in Finland in 1955 there was an Audrey Hepburn lookalike contest, and the grand prize was a trip to Stockholm! If you can read Finnish, then there’s a short article here, and you can see a small picture of the winner. There is also a link to a short video about the contest on that page, or you can just click here. It seems that even then, everyone wanted to look like Audrey.

UNICEF, pearls, and the lasting power of Audrey Hepburn

No Comments 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.

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

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 . . .
