Audrey in Rome
04 . 03 . 13
The May 2013 issue of Vanity Fair has a wonderful feature on the new book Audrey in Rome and I highly recommend picking it up. I knew Audrey Hepburn made Roman Holiday but didn’t realize that she lived in the Eternal city for more than 20 years. Her son Luca Dotti culled the Reporters Association archives and found over 2,500 photos of the star, many of which were taken on the street and with her dog Mr. Famous. It’s fun to see the progression of fashion from the 1950’s to 1970’s in the photos too. The book will be released on April 16th and would make a perfect present for my birthday on the 18th…hint hint.

I just love Audrey! She is the epitome of style and grace. I already have two coffee table books about the beauty, but a third can’t hurt!!
Oh Audrey! Stunning! This is going to be a wonderful addition to my collection.
Her haircut from Wait Until Dark.
Still lovin it.
I was lucky enough to meet her at a benefit where she was being honored for her work with Unicef. She did not disappoint – absolutely lovely. A treasured memory.
I didn’t know she lived in Rome for 20 years either – so interesting…
Always impeccably dressed, such a classy lady.
Her grace and style have always inspired me.
Love the haircut!
Audrey Hepburn is the most beautiful woman who ever lived. bar none.

Andrey and Rome! the most beautiful women and one of the greatest cities on the earth.
I have to get the book, or at least the magzine for now.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
