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.

How to be Audrey Hepburn/Holly Golightly for Halloween

6 Comments 24 September 2007

It’s that time of year again … Halloween! And I’ve noticed that a lot of people have been searching for an Audrey Hepburn costume, so here’s everything you need all in one convenient post. Since most women tend to do Holly Golightly as an easily recognizable Audrey costume, most of these tips are Breakfast at Tiffany’s oriented. The film was recently voted the most stylish film of all time, so it’s hard to go wrong as Holly Golightly!

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.

FINALLY! New pictures, and the minute-long Gap commercial

No Comments 27 October 2006

Thankfully my home didn’t decide to burn down (yet), so I was able to get up 229 pictures for you! This gallery is just miscellaneous pictures from throughout the 1950s, like modeling pictures and candids. You can go straight to the gallery by clicking here, if you’d like.


Next up, someone finally got the 60 second Gap commercial back on You Tube! I’ll always kick myself for not downloading it right away. The sound isn’t quite synched up at the beginning, but I’ll take what I can get right now.

Edit: video has been removed from YouTube

I found a review of the new They All Laughed DVD on USA Today, and they didn’t seem to care about it too much. It rated 2 1/2 stars out of four, and no bonus features are listed. (The only ones I know about so far are a commentary with director Peter Bogdanovich and an interview with him and fellow director/fan Wes Anderson.) You can see their review here, about halfway down the page.

And lastly, Ray-Ban is bringing back some classic shades. The Wayfarers, worn in many classic movies like The Blues Brothers and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, are coming back from the dead, for the price of $129. There’s apparently going to be a pretty big media blitz to stir up more interest in the shades (and to try and get away with their major price inflation), so maybe we’ll see some more use of Audrey in ad campaigns? The most important part of the story is here, but if you want to read more, you’ll have to subscribe to The Wall Street Journal. Lame.

P.S. I’m having trouble deciding what I want to give away in the next contest, so maybe you could help us out! There’s a poll on the contests page, so vote on what you’d like to see given away next. If you want to suggest something that’s not listed, simply click on the “something not listed here” button, then drop us a line saying what you would like to see. We’ll take all suggestions seriously, as long as you don’t suggest us buying the Breakfast at Tiffany’s dress and then giving it away. Don’t you dare! 🙂
