Adoring Audrey

A blend of beauty and elegance, Audrey Hepburn was born on May 4, 1929 in Belgium, Brussels. She was a film and fashion icon of the twentieth century and one of the most beloved actresses of all time. She enchanted the world with elegance and innocent charm, and portrayed some of the most memorable characters in film. Although she was one of the few actresses to win an Emmy, Tony, Grammy, and Academy Award, Audrey was modest about her talents, often claiming she had no acting technique. She redefined glamour with elfin features and a waif-like figure that inspired timeless designs by Hubert de Givenchy. Raised in the Netherlands during World War II, Audrey never forgot her own struggles during the German occupation and dedicated her later years to helping needy children around the world, becoming an International Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and traveling around the world to provide aid. Audrey Hepburn is remembered as a natural talent, a timeless beauty and a great humanitarian.

Switzerland, 1957; Anne Frank’s father, Otto Frank and his second wife, with Audrey Hepburn.
“Anne Frank and I were born in the same year, lived in the same country, experienced the same war, except she was locked up and I was on the outside. [Reading her diary] was like reading my own experiences from her point of view. I was quite destroyed by it. An adolescent girl locked up in two rooms, with no way of expressing herself other than to her diary. The only way she could tell the change in season was by a glimpse of a tree through the attic window.
“It was in a different corner of Holland, but all the events I experienced were so incredibly accurately described by her-not what was going on on the outside, but what was going on on the inside of a young girl starting to be a woman…all in a cage. She expresses the claustrophobia, but transcends it through her love of nature, her awareness of humanity and her love-real love-of life.”
