Audrey Hepburn: Beauty & Humanity

Audrey Hepburn: Beauty & Humanity

Such day like today but in 1929 (4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993) was born actress and humanitarian Audrey Hepburn. A woman whose undeniable talent and freshness would become one of the most extraordinary actresses of all time. Her name is synonymous of beauty and elegance throughout the world coming to become a fashion icon that endures to this day. AudreyHepburn was a cultured and intelligent woman, with defects and virtues like everyone but it is clear that in some people, virtues can be so great and valuable that dwarf any small and absurd flaw or weakness that such an exceptional human being can have.

When I say this, I refer to her exemplary humanitarian work with UNICEF that has left a lasting impression on us, as I’m sure the rest of the world. Having had a rough childhood herself, she dedicated much of her life to giving back and helping less fortunate children in third world countries.


As part of her role as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador she ventured to places that many of us could only imagine — from Ethiopia and Venezuela to El Salvador and Sudan. Her efforts have seen her awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom from President G. H. W Bush, and also the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Audrey had two children, Sean Ferrer, from her marriage to fellow actor and director Mel Ferrer and Luca Dotti, from her second marriage to Italian psychiatrist Andrea Dotti.


Today, Sean and Luca continue their mother’s legacy through the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund. The fund was set up by Sean and Luca, along with Audrey’s long time partner and companion Robert Wolders.

The wonderful Audrey Hepburn – An inspiration



I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing,kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” ―
