In our history there are women who should never be forgotten. So we've introduced a new series in which the biggest icons will be remembered because we have something to learn from them and inspire them.
The beauty with the look of the deer
Although the world remembers as a disgusting Holly Golightly, an illegitimate Lisa Doolitle (My Fair Lady) or a naive princess on a flight (Holiday in Rome), Audrey Hepburn was much more than just a beauty lending her face.
In the middle of the last century, she recognized it all over the world. It was the icon of the movie, the icon of fashion and the icon of distant women and men.
During her life, she managed to fight the Nazis, grab Ocar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony, raise two children, change fashion history and look at the beauty of women forever, become a UNICEF ambassador with grace and grace without precedents that still make it a legend.
But the beginning of his life was not as bright as the Hollywood years that followed.
Audrey Hepburn was born on May 4, 1929, in Brussels, into a wealthy and aristocratic family. His mother was a Baroness, coming from the family of Dutch tenderness, and his father, although born in the present Czech village called Úžice, was of British-Australian origin. His noble ancestors are said to extend to James Hepburn, the third husband of Mary I, the most famous Scottish queen. The early years of Audrin's life were privileged.
Because of her parents' origins and frequent travels, she has already spoken as a small five languages. But a childhood of endless fairy tales ended when she was only 6 years old, something she later described as "the greatest tragedy of her life" -the departure of her father and the subsequent divorce of her parents, with whom the beautiful actress had never established herself.
Years of war
Audrey spent several years in a boarding school in England, where she began dancing when World War II struck her mother wanting to have a daughter with herself, safe for neutral Holland.
And again they followed the tragedy of a young girl with a hesitant look. The Netherlands was under the invasion of Germany and became the target of the Nazi oppression that persisted during the war. In the country, therefore, illegal groups of resistance formed whose members were strictly prohibited and even more severely punished.
Audrey witnessed several Nazi executions, including her uncle and mummy cousin. Unfortunately, neither his immediate family nor his neighbor. One of them was arrested, the other fleeing and hiding from the same fate. Audrey was also in danger, mainly because of her British origin, and was forced to change her name to Edd.
Despite the risk, Audrey adolescent helped the Dutch insurgent in anti-Nazi resistance. She wore secret stories in her shoes and participated in dance performances to raise money for the resistance.
During the war, however, there was not enough food in the Netherlands to enroll in his health. She was disappointed and suffered from anemia, breathing problems and other difficulties that reappeared during her lifetime. But health problems were not the only thing left in the war. She could never forget suffering, death, and hunger, and years of misery dragged her to death somewhere.
She wanted to be a dancer.
After the war, Audrey began a serious ballet training in Amsterdam, then in London. She also worked as a model. Although her true goal was to become a dancer, despite the talent, she could not fulfill her dream. The main reason was the weakening of the body due to malnutrition in wartime. She decided to become an actress.
Her first roles were in West End, London, where she began as a teacher. Although her first film was filmed shortly after the war in Holland, Audry's film career began in 1951. Gigi's production on Broadway was also of great importance where she played a major role.
The success of the real actor, however, brought his first role as Princess Anna in the movie Holiday in Rome (1953). Naive, she was so convincingly convinced she had won an Oscar. It was a huge success for the amazing actress, who started a brilliant star named Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey was like most actresses of the time, her subtlety obscured vulgar sexbombs and returned to the elegance of the film industry. Other advances included the Russian classic Vojna a Mier (1956), Funny Face (1957) and Nun Story (1959), which proved that Audrey is also good at heavy roles.
His biggest success, however, was the movie Breakfast at Tiffany (1961) on the themes of Truman Capot's book.
Holly Golightly, a beautiful, naive and incredibly elegant woman, in love with a man's desire. Although it was the role of Holly, with whom Audrey was most associated, she was not sure, at first, of being able to access the film.
She feared that she and the character I played were too different and would not be able to convince her enough. This fear turned out to be unnecessary, and the role of a beautiful program girl brought Audrey to the glory that surpassed her generation. Another film whose success deserves attention was the musical My Fair Lady (1964), in which he returned to play an important role. During her career, she lent more than 30 TV roles and films.
She has become not only a darling of audiences, but also critical, as well as various nominations and awards, including Oscar and Grammy, which she has earned in her career.
Desire to be a mother did not give up
Audry's family life was far from as distant as her rising star. In 1954, she starred as an actor, director and film producer Mel Ferrer.
Although his life yearned for the child, his initial attempts ended with tragedies. The first pregnancy ended with abortion, the second birth of a dead child. When Audrey finally managed to give birth to the healthy boy Sean in 1960, she was placed in the same role as a mother in her acting career before. However, the marriage to Ferrerom did not last, and after fourteen years ended in divorce.
However, his initial failure did not stop him from trying again. Just a year later, she went to an Italian psychiatrist named Andrea Dotti, with whom she had her second and last child, a boy named Luc. This marriage did not last forever. She spent the last (and supposedly the most bizarre) years of her life with Dutch actor Robert Wolders, whom she never did.
Icon, new woman …
Although from the beginning of her career, Audrey and fashion complement each other, the Tiffany Breakfast in Breakfast made one of them. Since then, Audrey has been perceived as a fashion icon that everyone copied from girls to middle-aged women. Audrey slammed the door of affection and erased the elegance.
So she created the concept of a new woman.
Elegant, gentle, perhaps even ethereal, but without the power of expression or self-awareness and self-worth. She cut off the string of blonde blondes and relaxed the way for the women of a leaner figure.
Although she considered herself very poor, she complained of her ears and her very large feet, she noticed some "defects". Audrey embraced the beauty of a woman in ballerinas and dresses that cover a lot, but give the chance of another beauty.
The heart of a big woman
Audrey used her glory and influence in the work of a humanitarian worker and dedicated her charity to the last years of her life. She became an ambassador for the UNICEF Foundation.
She went to developing countries and focused mainly on helping hungry and sick children because she remembered herself well, which means hunger. Although he died in cancer in 1993, his ideas still live thanks to his children who still continue the humanitarian work of his mother …
