Overview

Though on-camera she was often cast in the role of a carefree ingénue, Audrey Hepburn's off-camera life was marked by challenges: growing up without a father and with the Nazi threat during her youth; a demanding film career while she was a young mother; unfaithful husbands and two divorces; and constant scrutiny from the media. Yet Audrey Hepburn always epitomized beauty and grace. In the tradition of What Would Jackie Do? bestselling author Pamela Keogh culls lessons in loveliness from a woman who survived every setback with panache. Topics include:

• Dating and romantic advice from a woman who enjoyed romances with John F. Kennedy, William Holden, and Albert Finney

• A primer on what made Audrey the icon she is today, and how to apply her style choices to twenty-first-century clothes, makeup, and accessories

• Raising children, raising husbands, and making home life balanced in every way

• St. Audrey: Long before Angelina and Bono got all the press, Audrey Hepburn did invaluable work for UNICEF, teaching us much about extending ourselves to others.

In an era fraught with selfishness, artifice, and sensational headlines, the reality and tranquility of Audrey is precisely what the world needs now.

Editorial Reviews

Audrey Hepburn was an icon, but she was an icon who realized that "by all laws of logic, I should have never made it. At every stage of my career, I lacked the experience." Perhaps it is just that graceful modesty that makes her such a trustworthy guide. Pamela Keogh, the author of Audrey Style, here applies Hepburn's principles and experiences to dating, marriage, style, raising children, happiness, and other pertinent topics.

This book was very good tidbits about Audrey but I can ready a biography book for that. I felt that the author was very repetitive through the book. I finished the book but I was expecting more..

I am on my second reading of this book because I'm getting ready to make a big move and I know how important a good first impression can be. This book really does help lead you to put your own best foot forward.
