Audrey Hepburn


Asked about "what you really do for UNICEF?", she would answer:"My task is to inform, to create awareness of the needs of children. It would be nice to be an expert on education, economics, politics, religions, traditions and cultures. I'm none of those. But I am a mother and I will travel."

It's So Audrey! A Style Icon

Audrey Hepburn was born on May 4, 1929, in Belgium as Audrey Kathleen Ruston. She was the daughter of the British banker and a Dutch aristocrat. The father quickly left his mother Audrey and for many years he had no contact with her daughter. Audrey often later recalled that her father was leaving her extremely painful experience, impinging on her life.

She spent childhood in the Netherlands as "Eddy" - her mother gave her for a new name, because "Audrey" sounded too English, and it could arouse suspicion in the German occupiers, and even be grounds for deportation.

"Happy girls are the prettiest""Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!""The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides"

Audrey in 1954 received the Academy Award for "Roman Holiday" in the category "Best Actress". Today it is hard to understand why he received a second statuette in 1961 for her role in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (the prize Sophia Loren accounted for when the film "Mother and Daughter").
