My Celebrity Icon

Everyone has that one person or celebrity that they look up to and secretly (or not so secretly) obsess over in their lives.

For me, It's the ever so lovely Audrey Hepburn.

I've always seen Ms. Audrey as an inspiration. 
She came from such a hard childhood, living through WWII in Europe. 
Dancing through hard times.
Becoming a celebrity over night while still trying to keep her eye on the importance of family.
Searching for true love while being surrounded by the fiction of Hollywood.
Wanting to be a mother and wife above all things.
 Staying true to her passion and love for helping those in need.
And being classically stylish on top of it all.

She caught my eye in My Fair Lady. 
(I can't help it, I'm musical obsessed.)
She was beautiful with the poise of a princess and the way that she spoke. 
So animated and arresting. 
A genuine person in the 'over actors' of her time.
I was probably 8 or 9 when I first saw it.

From there I was introduced to Breakfast At Tiffany's.
It became an instant favorite.

I've taken the time to see the rest of the movies that she has stared in... 
Roman Holiday
Funny Face
The Children's Hour
How to Steal A Million
Wait Until Dark

Just to name a few.

And I've collect quite a few books.
She is a style icon and a humanitarian.
I adore her and her life's work.

It's hard to find a celebrity like her in today's world. 
It's just a completely different place...
And in my opinion, it's just getting worse.
