“Her personality dazzled or melted everyone. She could just as easily conduct a conversation with Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis as with visiting Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. A friend summed it up: ‘It broke my heart. Just the look of that girl. It’s one of those magic things.’”—Audrey Hepburn’s biography (written by Barry Paris), New York, 1996. (via dostoievski-is-my-soulmate)
hello! i was intriged by your last answered when you were talking about the time where she looked like her mother, would you mind taking the time to link me the photos? have a nice day and thank you for the effort you put on this blog
And for reference, here is a picture of Audrey and her mother, Baroness Ella Van Heemstra, c. 1946.
In that picture (above) she looks like a perfect combination of her mother and father. Audrey took after her father, they both had “square” shaped-faces (as she so famously described looks), similar eyes, noses and mouths.
I'm not Tumblr Famous. I still smile when I gain a follower and get upset when I lose one. It makes me happy seeing that there are other people on my blog than just me and when someone reblogs something I posted it makes me feel warm inside. I love and appreciate all of my followers. Reblog if you do too.
I’m considering starting an art history blog (cos Tumblr simply doesn’t have enough of those) to support my studies, to act as a kind of interactive notebook.
Now I just have to come up with a clever title, like “show me the Monet” (which is brilliant and already taken, obviously)
If anyone has any suggestions, hmu!
Reblogged from my main blog. I’m starting art history major studies in less than a month (!!!!!) and I figured Tumblr might be a great help since I spend so much time here anyway. So seriously, if you have a really sassy idea for an art history blog url, message me here or in my main blog. I’m coming up empty since I can’t get over that ‘show me the Monet’ and how much I wish I’d thought of it :(
