Audrey Hepburn's loveliness in photographs

Audrey Hepburn will forever be an icon to me, she was stunning, kind and intelligent all throughout her life.

Famously she is known for her film roles such as Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), My Fair Lady (1964), and Roman Holiday (1953). Also, her petite slender figure and modelling features are still admired today. 

However she was more than just a movie star. Audrey was very dedicated to charity work and helped many different causes; she actually worked as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF up until her death (1993)

Like many celebrities, her raw personality and looks rarely ever made the front page. 
So while procrastinating on a fabulous new site I stumbled across (here) this article on unique photos displaying Audreys charm really caught my eye. 

Increasingly, the debate on how people are portrayed by the media is concerning. Of course, since the first media was printed it was an issue. Every writer and photographer has their own opinion and perspective and likewise so does every reader. 

The arising issue nowadays however is the twisting of words, photoshopping of digital media and purposeful misinterpretation; all to boost profit and publicity. 

Optimistically, more and more people (including celebrities) are standing up against photo shopping. A recent example is of Keira Knightley, who posed topless in protest for Interview magazine (see more here)

Turns out, Audreys pet Deer and my own pet dog share the same name, Pippin!!

What do you think about how the Media twists some perspectives?

Have a wonderful day,

The first face, you show to the world. The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.”
