Audrey Hepburn

Born in Brussels in Belgium in 1929, Hepburn charmed all who knew her until her death in 1993. As a young child, she traveled extensively because of her father’s job and was sent to England for boarding school when she was five years old. During the Nazi occupation, Audrey suffered from bouts of malnutrition and the family was at one point forced into hiding. During all of this, Audrey kept up with ballet with which she had started training when she was at boarding school. She even gave lessons to local children.

The family moved to Amsterdam where Audrey continued to train as a ballerina and began to model to make extra money. In 1948, she had her first screen test , as well as a small role in a Dutch film. Audrey then appeared in the chorus line of a stage show. In 1951, Hepburn was noticed and cast for a small role in the British production, “The Lavender Hill Mob”, but her first major screen role would come two years later when she played the part of a princess in hiding in “Roman Holiday”.  The following year, she took the title role in the film, “Sabrina” which not only gained her notice for her acting, but for her fashion sense as well. The gowns that she wore in the film, most of them Givenchy, inspired countless others as her claim to the title, fashion icon was cemented. Hepburn is possibly best remembered with her dark hair piled high on her head, although she did wear other hair styles equally well. The upswept, elegant ‘do though became almost a trademark for her, almost as important as her fabulous clothes and understated jewelry choices.

In ‘53, she won a Tony award for “Ondine” and then married her first husband, Mel Ferrer, whom she remained with for 15 years. Audrey remained busy during the following years with films “War and Peace”(‘56), “Funny Face” (‘57) and “The Nun’s Story” in 1959. She received an Oscar nomination for both “The Nun’s Story” and for the 1961 role that became one most often associated with her, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.  To decide which she is most famous for is probably difficult at best, especially when you consider such roles as “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and the ‘64 classic, “My Fair Lady” with Rex Harrison.

Audrey continued acting until announcing her retirement in 1975, after a career which had netted her a Tony award and five Oscar nominations. She was officially named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1987, working diligently and lovingly with starving children world wide, perhaps because of her own experience with malnutrition at a young age. She received the Screen Actor’s Guild Achievement Award the year before she died and received a humanitarian award posthumously from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
