Ranked third among the Greatest Female Stars of All-Time by the American Film Institute, the incomparable Audrey Hepburn is a movie and fashion icon. Two decades after her death, today’s teenagers are still familiar with her classic image from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and influenced by her simple sophistication and elegance … drawn perhaps to qualities that are decidedly lacking in many contemporary celebrities.
Much more than a pretty face, Audrey was also a respected performer … one of the only ones in history able to claim Academy, Tony, Emmy, and Grammy Awards. A true lady, she epitomizes grace and elegance, and Audrey Hepburn without makeup is simply stunning.
It appears in the first photo that Audrey is wearing a very minimal amount of makeup. Her eyebrows are a bit alarming with their exaggeratedly pointed arches, but otherwise she’s gorgeous. Her eyes are enormous and beautiful, and the fact that her nose and upper lip are ever so slightly asymmetrical is very charming.
The next photo was taken in Audrey’s later years when she was essentially retired from acting and devoting her life to UNICEF. She is stunning in her graceful self-possession.
