In 1953, When Audrey Hepburn burst onto the screen in Roman Holiday, she forever changed the international ideal of elegance, grace, and beauty. Suddenly, glamour and even sexiness seemed attainable for women everywhere; Audrey was uncommonly beautiful, but she was real--hers was a look anyone could aim for, but few could pull off as effortlessly or effectively. By mixing a few classic elements of "Audrey style"--the little black dress, ballet flats with slim capri pants, bold hats and sunglasses--suburban housewives became more Hollywood than Hoboken in an instant. Here, author Pamela Clarke Keogh introduces us to the woman behind the clothes, using words from friends, fellow actors, and the designers who dressed her to paint a picture of a truly remarkable woman. A humanitarian, artist, friend, and above all, survivor, Audrey inspired women and men alike to approach life with spirit, grace, and simplicity. The nearly 100 colour and black-and-white photographs, paired with original sketches from such fashion luminaries as Givenchy, Manolo Blahnik, and Vera Wang, show that Audrey was much more than a beautiful, well-dressed personality; her courage and individuality come shining through in every page. --Leah Ball
"In every movie I have ever watched, starting with" Roman Holiday, " I was in love with Audrey Hepburn. I played every part--I was Gregory Peck a long time ago! I was Bill Holden, I was Cary Grant, I was her biggest fan." -- Ralph Lauren"The imprint of Miss Hepburn is absolutely, totally present. Like it or not, she will be the most important look of the twentieth century." -- Manolo Blahnik"I liked her a lot; in fact, I loved Audrey. It was easy to love her." -- Gregory Peck --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

P.S. The other night I got complemented on my make up by another woman!! This had never happened to me before and was thanks to the illustrations given of Audrey's make up in 'AudreyStyle'.
From the bottom of my heart,I want to thanks Mz.Pamela Clarke Keogh giving us such a good book and a good modle to follow...
I love it. Just a few tips on what you can do actually, but it explains very well was under the grace of Audrey and how she is what she is, a timeless princess.
I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for an amazing overview of Audrey Hepburn's life, and documenting the clothes she wore and the life she had.
Not only is the book beautifully presented in hardback with glossy cover, but it also has beautiful drawings and photographs inside.
I'm 19, and used to work as a waitress in Fulham. I met a photographer (who'd worked with Ms. Hepburn) at a function I was waiting on who told me I was a 'dead ringer' (anyone who's seen Roman Holiday will giggle) for Audrey, and since then I have been fascinated in learning about this amazing woman. If you know of a young lady in need of a good role model, give her this book; she'll thank you forever.
