Break out the record player and the cigarette holders. Monday, May 4, marks what would have been Audrey Hepburn's 86th birthday — and if that's not a reason to celebrate, we don't know what is.
Sublime, exquisite, graceful, compassionate, charming — these words have all been used to describe the stage and screen legend. Though she passed away in 1993, the actress and humanitarian's legacy lives on in our memories, our dress, our charitable works, our, ahem, chocolate bar commercials.
So, you've got the black turtleneck, ballet flats, and Givenchy dress (or at least something that could pass for one). You've got the baby bangs and full eyebrows. You've got the cat — named Cat, of course — and on occasion, you've got the mean reds. What else could you possibly need to emulate just a bit of that Audrey Hepburn lifestyle? How about these words of wisdom, straight from the icon's mouth. Read on to soak up the secrets to living, Hepburn-style.
