Audrey Hepburn was Gigi, a princess, Holly Golightly, Maid Marian, even an angel. But she was also one of the most admired and emulated women of the 20th century who encouraged women to discover intelligence in their own strength. By example she not only changed the way women dress - she altered the way they viewed themselves. This style biography reveals the details - fashion and otherwise - that contributed so greatly to Audrey's appeal. Drawing on interviews with Hubert de Givenchy, Gregory Peck, Nancy Reagan, Doris Brynner and Audrey Wilder, as well as reminiscences of professional friends like Steven Spielberg and Ralph Lauren, the book brings Audrey to life, giving measure to her grace, humour and inimitable fashion sense.

In 1953, When Audrey Hepburn burst onto the screen in Roman Holiday, she forever changed the international ideal of elegance, grace, and beauty. Suddenly, glamour and even sexiness seemed attainable for women everywhere; Audrey was uncommonly beautiful, but she was real--hers was a look anyone could aim for, but few could pull off as effortlessly or effectively. By mixing a few classic elements of "Audrey style"--the little black dress, ballet flats with slim capri pants, bold hats and sunglasses--suburban housewives became more Hollywood than Hoboken in an instant.
Here author Pamela Clarke Keogh introduces us to the woman behind the clothes, using words from friends, fellow actors, and designers who dressed her to paint a picture of a truly remarkable woman. A humanitarian, artist, friend, and above all, survivor, Audrey inspired women and men alike to approach life with spirit, grace, and simplicity. The nearly 100 color and black-and-white photographs, paired with original sketches from such fashion luminaries as Givenchy, Manolo Blahnik, and Vera Wang, show that Audrey was much more than a beautiful, well-dressed personality; her courage and individuality come shining through in every page. --Leah BallAbout the Author:
