Beautiful, elegant, stylish, graceful, compassionate, kind, loving, and a humanitarian – these are just some of the traits that are often attributed to the legendary Audrey Hepburn.
Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely adore Audrey Hepburn. Given that today, May 4th, is her birthday, I thought I would dedicate this post to her.
Audrey Hepburn was a screen legend (ranked by the American Film Institute as the third greatest female screen legend in the history of American cinema,). She was also one of the world’s most prominent fashion icons (was placed in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame). Not to mention that she was (and is still) considered to be one of the most beautiful women in the world.
Despite her awards and accolades, one of Audrey Hepburn’s most notable achievements is that she embodied compassion and humanitarianism. She was just as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside.
A truly exquisite woman, one who deserves to be looked up as an inspirational figure.
Unfortunately, in 1993, Audrey Hepburn succumbed to cancer. This dreadful disease ended the life of yet another amazing individual. Despite her illness, Audrey Hepburn continued to advocate for the less fortunate, and she gave a voice to those who were voiceless. She made an impact on the lives of others and created a legacy that remains alive today.
She has inspired me, not only with regards to beauty and fashion, but in all aspects of life. She has taught me to love and inspire those around you, to advocate for causes that are dear to your heart, and to have compassion for those that need it. I’m doing my best, Audrey.
There are countless days when I feel upset, frustrated, or hopeless, but then I recall the wise words of my all-time favourite icon, and I try my best to carry on.
I believe in miracles too.
Love, health, and living life the Audrey way!
