Today’s services are a throwback to a simpler time, when the most beautiful woman the world has ever seen ruled Hollywood: Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey Hepburn (born Audrey Kathleen Ruston; May 4, 1929) was a British actress, model, dancer and humanitarian. She was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third-greatest female screen legend in Golden Age Hollywood and was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.
Born in Ixelles, a district of Brussels, Hepburn spent her childhood between Belgium, England and the Netherlands. In Amsterdam, she studied ballet with Sonia Gaskell before moving to London in 1948. Following minor appearances in several films, Hepburn starred in the 1951 Broadway play Gigi after being spotted by French novelist Colette, on whose work the play was based.
She shot to stardom for playing the lead role in Roman Holiday (1953), for which she was the first actress to win an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a BAFTA Award for a single performance.
She was a terrific actress, a beautiful woman, and an all-around amazing talent. There are more photos below the fold…
There are plenty of hot looking women in Hollywood, but very few are truly beautiful. Certainly none of them compare to Hepburn, in my opinion.
Similarly, very few starlets can pull off the casual ponytail like Audrey could.
Obviously, this photo is a keeper.
The services have ended. You may now go in peace.
