Today is a special day. It is Audrey Hepburn's birthday. She would be 83. It is good to know that although time passes by, there are people that are still with us. We will always carry on reminiscing her cinematic moments: runaway royalty in Roman Holiday, two man's desire in Sabrina, librarian turned model in Funny Face, doubtful sister in The Nun's story, and of course, as the carefree Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. She had class, beauty, humility, poise, strenght. She was (and is) and icon, but more than that, she was a woman, and one of the good ones. She didn't have to exploit her sexual appeal or appear half naked on screen to be recognized. She wasn't ostentatious, boastful; in fact, quite the contrary. All she needed was a clean cut Givenchy black dress, sunglasses and her beautiful smile to shine.
Like her character Ann in Roman Holiday, she was and will always be to me a real life princess.
