Her style and her elegance made her an icon.
She was a Magician. She knew how to hide sorrow behind a beautiful smile.
She let us believe how precious to have a Breakfast in Tiffany's , while she paid hard for everything behind the curtain.
She survived the Nazi invasion, and became a spy during the war, despite the fact that her parents' were Nazi sympathizers.
She risked her life to change information and danced in illegal events for raising money for the resistance.
She even needed to give up on her dream of become a ballerina. Her starvation during the war not only almost took her life but also led her to suffer anemia.
'The war was very, very important to her. It made her who she was.' - her son said to New York post.
She fought. She was the same age as Anne Frank and [later] said: “That was the girl who didn’t make it and I did.”
She made 31 high quality movies and she mesmerized everyone with her adorable charm. She won several awards but it was her heart, which outshined all and reached beyond all of this glamour.
She made a decision and step down at the top of her career to spend the rest of her life helping to raise fund for starving children all around the world.
The woman we adore; the smile we admire; the innocent beauty she introduced and the diamond heart she had.
This post is dedicated to Audrey Hepburn, because she knew the secret.
“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
