Influence: Audrey Hepburn

There's really not much I can write about Ms. Hepburn that has not been said before. She was one in a million...a true icon. She inspired women not only during her time, but forever after. Her unique style is one that will always be emulated by people everywhere...chic, simple, timeless, elegant...

True story:
When Audrey Style first came out, I bought it and fell in love with it so much that I wrote to the author to say so. She was gracious enough to send a short hand-written note back to say thank you. What a classy gal.

Hey Cris,
Unfortunately, it wasn't Audrey that wrote back. It was the author of the book, Pamela Keogh.:)
