Audrey Hepburn: actress, style icon, humanitarian



Hubert de Givenchy with his famous Muse, Audrey Hepburn

 
Audrey Hepburn was a fashion and style icon for decades, and still is years after her untimely death from cancer in 1993. Like thousands of other women, I tried to emulate her style albeit with clothes from department stores. (Also....since my middle name is Audrey, it was a almost a )given!

Quote from Audrey...

Soon after becoming a UNICEF ambassador in 1989, Hepburn went on a mission to Ethiopia, where years of drought and civil strife had caused terrible famine. After visiting UNICEF emergency operations, she talked about the projects to the media in the United States, Canada and Europe over several weeks, giving as many as 15 interviews a day. It set a precedent for her commitment to the organization.

In 1993 after learning that Audrey was not allowed by her doctors to fly commercial after her final unsuccessful surgery to remove portions of her colon cancer, he arranged for a private jet to fly the dying Hepburn back to her family in Switzerland to spend her last days. She passed away at the age of 63, and the world misses her still.
