In Anticipation of Audrey: More Than An Icon

I am compelled to pay homage to Audrey Hepburn, who’s movies I’ve watched more than once, especially more so since the beginning of the pandemic. I always thought Mel Ferrer was handsome, and adored them both in “War & Peace” but quickly changed my opinion when I realized they divorced.

Audrey is more than an icon, sadness isn’t something that ever leaves us, we just learn to cope and make the best of it. It’s the sadness that makes us human, it gives us empathy and compassion for others. I sit here now marveling at her chic sense of style with tears in my eyes. It’s possible to be loved and sad…’s possible you will never have one without the other.

She looked amazing in anything she wore, and although I’ve seen “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” multiple times, the cover of Town & Country had me so excited this morning. I plan on watching the documentary and finally opening a bottle of sparkling and enjoying a quite evening in bed.
