Audrey Hepburn

She's been recently voted the most beautiful woman of all time and many voters weren't probably even born when she started making movies. You won't see many Audreys walking around in Livorno, but we have our “Colazione da Tiffany” (Breakfast at Tiffany's) in “Via Marradi”.A “Vacanze Romane” (Roman Holiday) t-shirt in a window of the “Gaia Scienza”, a bookshop inside the “Palazzo della Galleria”.
I liked this because we recently had our Roman holiday, but I am quite sure that Audrey Hepburn wasn't a t-shirt type.

I just saw a part of a documentary on Audrey Hepburn. She was one of my favorite actresses as I was growing up...

And yes, she wouldn't wear a tee shirt...well, perhaps in her later years...she did a lot of work for children in third-world countries.

From the little I know her spirit was as beautiful as her physical appearance.

Love her. She was beautiful!

Wow is that a cafe? I love her in Sabrina ;-)

Kate said...

I have admired her for years! Great t-shirt; I'd buy it!

I think the t-shirt pic doesn't do her justice. But really, with so many beautiful women in the world, how can anyone pick just one? I hear she was beautiful inside and out, though, as brattcat says, so I won't exactly disagree.

This is a fun post.

Can't believe I never saw those movies.

I think she was the most beautiful woman and I love all films with her. Breakfast at Tiffany is great (not mention the book!). I would love to visit both the cafe and bookshop:)
Hppy weekend to you!

You can't go wrong with Madame Hepburn and Dior.

Did you have breakfast at Tiffany's? Or brunch maybe?

Lois said...

There will never be another!

I love it! I am definitely going to Colazione da Tiffany if I'm ever in Livorno. Too funny!

JM said...

Classy Audrey was the best Givenchy model ever! I agree with Ciel as to the T-shirt.

JM said...

Sorry, it's Tapirgal not Ciel!... :-)

I always liked Audrey Hepburn. I even wore my hair like hers for awhile--alas I didn't look like her although I have dark hair and dark eyes--Maybe..................

Well, now I know where to go for my first cup of coffee if in Livorno.
Re.Audrey Hepburn. She had STYLE!

Wolynski said...

Tiffany's is actually a fancy jewelry store. And, yes, Audrey was something else.

James said...

With one exception I've thought she was the most beautiful women for as long as I can remember.

Steffe said...

She was a looker. That's for sure. I met one such beauty the other day. Will post a photo tomorrow so take your heart medication before you visit my blog tomorrow!
