Oh, Audrey… you made us dream with Rome, you taught us how to still a million dollars, what a fair lady look alike and you made thousands of girls dream with breakfast at Tiffanys.

Audrey is known for an elegant silhouette and discreet (but luxurious) outfits. During her life, she always inspired women with the delicacy of her moves and words (maybe as result of the years of ballet she practiced). She also supported humanitarian causes bringing a sense of social responsibility to the cinema universe. Such an inspiration…
