Audrey As Promised

made as Holly Golightly

Audrey Hepburn was always one of my favorite women, and Breakfast At Tiffany’s is definitely in my top ten where favorite movies are concerned.

A few nights after this Golightly-success I tried making a few other looks from the movie (pink dress, cat mask), but they didn’t work out as planned. The bun-work Holly sported was pretty intricate for each outfit and I just couldn’t get it in the mindset I was in (one beer and one tequila shot inebriation). It just didn’t work out.

It is very good, however, that Audrey Hepburn worked out for the world. She represents the type of underdog story that doesn’t really happen now-a-days what with instant fame shows, reality television, youtube, yada yada, etc., and so on.

Audrey Hepburn was not only important in film, but also in activism for children around the world through UNICEF. Pretty sweet.

And for dessert she would eat a Granny Smith.


But in all seriousness, I do hope that there are young girls out there that know who Audrey Hepburn is and can look up to her as a positive role model. With all there is out there to get starry-eyed over it’s worrying how the young-folk are interpreting all this garbage into how they should actually act in real life.

Pissing on boardwalks and flipping the bird through slurs of shit-storms isn’t exactly graceful.

Let’s all be more graceful.
