Being Audrey, in more than one way

1 Comment 25 February 2009

Hello all. Thanks for being so patient as I fell off the face of the Earth (yet again). Without going into too much detail, the economic crisis has mucked up my life and I’m afraid I must spend the majority of my time trying to make ends meet until things improve. So I’m sorry for the lack of updates, but thank you for being loyal and hovering about, waiting patiently for more news.

Just now I received a letter from a lady named Michelle, and she has some interesting information that New York Audrey fans will love to hear, I’m sure. I’ll just copy and paste Michelle’s words, since they say everything that needs to be said so well:

Being Audrey is the story of Claire Stark, the new York woman who has it all: a beautiful life, marital and social bliss, and a view of Tiffany’s from her Fifth Avenue apartment. When calamity strikes and her fairytale world threatens to collapse, Claire seeks refuge in her imagination, where she embarks on a hilarious, romantic adventure inspired by the films of her heroine, Audrey Hepburn.

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. Classes. It all seems very strange. Still, I highly recommend reading the whole article.

"It’s just another form of expression"

No Comments 14 November 2006

I’ve been thinking up a new project for the site, and hopefully tomorrow it’ll be up and running. It actually would have been today, but certain programs decided to be fussy today, so tomorrow it is. (Thanks, Adobe.) Anyway, people from all over the world come and visit the site, and they seem to be a little shy about speaking up on the site, so maybe the language barrier has something to do with it. On this new page, people can talk about why they love Audrey and what makes her so special in any language they like, and it will be posted completely unedited for anyone to read, along with the author’s favourite picture of Audrey. This way other visitors who may not be comfortable with English can still get the message about why Audrey is still so loved today, and maybe your words will make a new fan! So start thinking in any and all languages you know, and tomorrow will have the information you need to start sharing your thoughts.

Contest is over! Plus, new technology will make the Gap ads look like child’s play

No Comments 18 October 2006

Well folks, the first Fab Audrey contest ended last night at 11:59 (to avoid semantics arguments about which midnight counts on which day). A big thank you to everyone who entered, and a heads up saying that winners will be notified sometime today.

And news is suddenly slow on Audrey, if you don’t count all the repeat articles making their rounds. The only shareable thing I’ve found lately is an article on gossip site Defamer, talking about new technology that will make it possible to take old, possibly dead celebrities and make them act in completely new ways in new movies. So if you thought cutting and pasting Audrey from Funny Face was bad, or Fred Astaire dancing with a vacuum cleaner was blasphemous, then just wait until people start to take advantage of this new technique. I can’t even bring myself to cite bad examples, because they just might come true. Can you think of any future Audrey horror stories? (Okay, I’ll submit one: since Jennifer Love Hewitt claims to be such a big fan [though she stopped mentioning Audrey once The Audrey Hepburn Story was in the can], imagine her helping Audrey “cross over” on Ghost Whisperer, while Audrey praises Hewitt and her ego to the sky. Is that bad enough?) Here’s the full article.
