Breakfast with Audrey: The Dream of Eating a Croissant with Tiffany

When you are a girl you dream to be Nancy, Barbie, or Supernena, depending on the corresponding decade. but over the years, and in a kind of strange coincidence mitómana all, or almost, the women of the world go to admire to Audrey Hepburn. The Gallery Taschen Brussels know it and therefore pays these days Hommage to the beautiful Sylphide, with some unpublished images carried out by Bob Willoughby, one of the greatest photographers of the studies of Hollywood who died in 2009.

Why this fascination with the Hepburn? It or rather his character is in? Breakfast at Tiffany’s? film in which by the way was a well-known character of the Spanish public life.

They say of him that he was about to marry her, that she got him the role of millionaire-rich breakfast with diamonds and as I have read this summer in his biography, with which I spent pipe, he was initially invited to stay at home by the Ferrer (Audrey and her husband Mel Ferrer) but after three days he had to flee due to hunger that passed the diet of the Ferrer. It is of José Luis de Villalonga, or Brazilian millionaire in the film.

All love Audrey Hepburn. Surely it is similar to the acontecidocon with Sarah Jessica Parker or the Gossip:  We have extrapolated elegant characters, dressed like nobody, somewhat eccentric and dream lives, to the actresses who play them and in that throne we’ve installed them.

However Audrey Kathleen Ruston, later Edda van Heemstra Hepburn-Ruston, more known as Audrey Hepburn, was more than a pretty face and a body longilinear.

“ People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed: never throw to anyone. ”-Audrey Hepburn


Speaking of the beautiful Audrey was talk about thinness, also its elegance, porte, smile and also as each only ate salads and yogurts, including José Luis de Vilallonga and according to his son Sean Hepburn was a lover of Italian food, which had great recipes. published in a biography.

Audrey is continuous reference in Hollywood fashion, since the “ era of our Pe Audrey ”, up to Lily Allen or the missing and lovely Brittany Murphy in the movie “ love and other disasters ”, a film that I recommend for your crazy transcript of the already unstable Holly Goligthly. And it also occurs in the blog world, with its name, figure, face, style and music films repeatedly swarming through cyberspace.
Took me the hand … well as a Princess, and dazzled me with that smile that God designed to melt the hearts of mortal men “. So the photographer recalled the moment in which his life crossed Hepburn.

Please I also want to go to the supermarket with a Fawn and look his Jackie Onassis would later make.
