Audrey Hepburn – an actress, style icon and philanthropist. She was born in Belgium in 1929 and studied classic ballet before starting her movie career in London. She already starred in Broadway’s Gigi at the young age of 22. She is recognised as one of the greatest female screen legends of all time and sets new fashion standards after starring in Breakfast at Tiffany’s as Holly Golightly. Hepburn is one of few actresses to win an Academy, Emmy, Grammy and Tony Awards. She also devoted a lot of her time to humanitarian work in her later years. I don’t think we need any more reasons to have a look at some of her less known photos and get inspired by her life and timeless sense of style.
