The author of the bestselling Audrey Style and Jackie Style offers a charming guide to modern living inspired by the impeccable example set by Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey Hepburn epitomised grace and style, not only in her appearance but in her very essence. Whether in fashion, relationships, home life, or her work – both on screen and for UNICEF – no role model is more worthy of imitation. So, who better to turn to when pondering the right thing to do in our complex, modern world? In an era fraught with self-interest, artifice and vulgarity, Audrey can teach us how to remain demure, sophisticated, loving and gorgeous, everyday.
Drawing on examples from the actress’s extraordinary life, this hugely enjoyable, beautifully-designed book offers advice on dating, seduction techniques and marriage from the woman who enjoyed romances with John F. Kennedy, William Holden and Albert Finney; tips on how to apply Audrey’s style to twenty-first-century clothes, make-up and accessories; insights into raising children, taming husbands and achieving a work-life balance and lessons in philanthropy from the star who used her fame to help others long before Bono or Angelina. Indeed, everything one might need to survive in the modern world.
So, in place of strife, just ask yourself: What would Audrey do?
