Elegant Audrey~The Life Of

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.”~Audrey Hepburn

One of my favorite actresses growing up was Audrey Hepburn. My parents were very strict about our television, so musicals and older movies were popular with us. Some of my faves were- “My Fair Lady,” “Gigi” and “Funny Face.”

 

“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm. As you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.” ~Audrey Hepburn

I have always thought she was such an elegant woman. Yes, she was fabulous in style and beauty. She appeared to always have a spectacular smile and sparkle in her eyes. But, her character far exceeded her talent and appearance in life. She was truly extraordinary and taken too soon from this world!

“Hepburn appeared in fewer films as her life went on, devoting much of her later life to UNICEF. She had contributed to the organisation since 1954, then worked in some of the poorest communities of Africa, South America and Asia between 1988 and 1992. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in recognition of her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in December 1992. A month later, Hepburn died of appendiceal cancer at her home in Switzerland at the age of 63.” ~Wikipedia
