The Cult of Audrey: All Style and No Substance
|Audrey Hepburn: The Queen of Keeping It Simple.|
|Love: The Best Accessory of All.|
Hers is a name and a face that is used to sell books on how to look good, but she is far more than that --yet when I hear young women talk about Audrey it is always with a slavish devotion to the former and no recognition of the latter. Once again, I must say that saddens me. For the greatest beauty tip one could glean from her is to simply be kind. Growing up, but of course, I never believed my mother when she said it is inner beauty that counts, but since then I have come to know better.
An oft-repeated quote, writer/director Billy Wilder on Audrey Hepburn:
"God kissed her on the cheek and there she was."
