To my Fashion Icon Audrey Hepburn

Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to be someone who would make a difference in the world. First, I wanted to be a lawyer (to fight for people) then a teacher (to help others learn). There was always something strongly behind the reason. Well, I believe someone I saw on TV one day helped started all that.

Watching Audrey in her plays and movie roles helped shape what I'm today. She is the ultimate heroin to me. Her simple and classic looks, smile and terrific charm always set the stage for this phenomenal superstar. From the becoming one of the world's most famous actresses to her passionate work as a humanitarian, Audrey was everything most woman wanted to be. She was graceful, kind, and very humble.

This gorgeous British actress became a fashion icon and was inducted into the Hall of Fame's International Best Dressed List. Her signature cat eyes, clean and streamlined tailor clothing all were just a few of my favorite things about her. Throughout her career, a well known designer Givenchy, was then discovered and inspired by her. The name speaks for itself. The talented work of this designer is just outstanding.

After filming and going into her older years, she then dedicated her life to helping others. Remembering her quote (which is my favorite) "As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself,and the other for helping others".  Throughout her travels to South America and Africa, she was awarded the Presidential Metal of Freedom for work a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador:-). Hard work really pays off especially if you do it from the heart.

I hope you enjoyed my dedication to one of my favorite fashion icons. She had inspired me in some many ways. Thank you Audrey for your everything :-)!!
