Fashion goddess. UNICEF heroine. Givenchy s twinkly-eyed muse. There will never be another actress quite like Audrey Hepburn. Her enchanting turns as Ann Roman Holiday's spirited princess-on-the-run and Holly Golightly Breakfast at Tiffany's irresistibly flawed girl-about-town won her the hearts of a generation. Decades on, her memory still shines. All but inseparable from the princess she played on-screen back in 1953, she remains the very embodiment of style, grace and beauty that comes from within.
But there s more to the effortlessly classy Hollywood starlet than meets the eye. Did you know, for instance, that Audrey kept an orphaned fawn named Pippin? That she was a gifted linguist, fluent in five different languages? That she inherited her perfect poise from her Dutch baroness mother? That there s a breed of snowy tulip named after her? Or perhaps that Henry Mancini wrote Moon River especially for her? Filled with quotes, anecdotes and charming color photos, 100 Reasons to Love Audrey Hepburn pays tribute to the woman behind the little black dress, documenting every fun and fabulous fact you ll ever need to know about the flawless Audrey Hepburn."
