Back when I used to dress a little bit fancy for work and wear grown-up clothes outside of the house more often, a colleague once told me that my outfit was reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn. Prolly one of the top five moments of my life. Seriously. Now this lovely book lets me share that Just Being Audrey elegance and grace with my girls. It follows her kindness and individuality from her childhood in Nazi-occupied Europe through her movie career, to her work as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.
Sidebar: Many people will tell you that Breakfast at Tiffany’s is the best Audrey Hepburn movie. This is incorrect! It’s Charade. Obvi. Buy it for Audrey, but stay for Cary Grant. Because they just don’t make ‘em like him anymore. Plus, dialogue! Snappy and fun. Like they used to do. I love it so much that the first expensive thing I ever bought was a vintage Charade poster. I love it so much that I refuse to see the remake. And I love Marky Mark.
