Not many books seem to be able to live up to their enthusiastic reviews, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this one did. This captured the class of Audrey Hepburn, yet filled in the blanks on her life and style approach without sinking to a tabloid style of writing. She and Givenchy had one of the most successful "marriages" in history and it was interesting to read how they helped to bring out the best in each other. I enjoyed learning more about the story of her life and her relationships, as well as her career and her look. I found myself studying the many pictures of her both on and off the screen, and plan to incorporate in my own life some of the tips the author included. I highly recommend this book as an enjoyable read from start to finish.

As an avid admirer of Audrey Hepburn, I have long been aware that she was not just exceptionally beautiful, but genuinely kind and generous as well. This book serves as not only a tribute to a personal grace, beauty, and stylishness beyond compare, but manages to also capture her history as a great humanitarian. I was enthralled by the elegant photographs and the insightful prose accompanying them. Like Audrey, this book is the epitome of grace, beauty, style, warmth, and substance. Exceptional subject AND exceptional author, indeed! I will return to this volume again and again for many years to come. It deserves 5+ stars!!

This is a lovely valentine to Audrey, part biography (most of the facts without any innuendo or scandal) and part guide to how her style made her memorable. Conclusion: she knew herself, what she liked and what looked good on her. Some extraneous interviews with celebrities who never knew her but many from those who did (rare insights from her companion Rob Wolders). Lots of photos even this lifelong Audrey fan had never seen before. Audrey's true beauty (of spirit) came from within. In the end we learn, alas, that's where we must find ours. Recommended to start or add to a collection of Audreybilia.

Audrey Hepburn, you can tell, was a very special woman, from the very first movie that you see of hers. And if that movie happens to be "Roman Holiday", then I would imagine, you would be in love with her.
I liked her so much that I kept renting movies of hers. But reading this book gave me a totally different perspective of Audrey. Her personality, her style, her hobbies, her ideas, her thinking and her way of life. Its a wonderful book and you can learn a few things that you can emulate. I would recommend this book to anyone especially the AH lovers out there. And who wouldn't be?

I never knew Audrey Hepburn's life was so moving; never realized she had lived through WWII, or been threatened by the Nazis, or even her personal struggles with her husbands. I suppose I never knew this because she lived her life with such grace. What wonder to find she had enormous strength as well. few woman today - Oprah Winfrey is the only one that comes to mind - seem to be of such substance as Hepburn: a great humanitarian who made everyone from her fellow actors, to her children, to the cameramen on the set, to all those children feel beloved.

This book is as elegant as Audrey herself. The fantastic array of pictures covers the whole evolution of Audrey's style, but this is more than your average coffee table picture book. The author's prose captures the grace and originality of the life it articulates; Keogh tells Audrey's story with uncommon wit and pragmatism. The gorgeous pictures and engrossing narrative are an irresistable combination.

This is simply the most inspiring books I've read all year . . . not just because Audrey Hepburn takes as beautiful a picture as one possible could, but because she lived a beautiful--yet flawed, yet tragic--life. She was a woman of true character, true grace, and that had so little to do with her waist-line. I am a better person for knowing her life, understanding her remarkable consitution.

This book is filled with beautifully written prose and exclusive photos that capture the class of Audrey Hepburn, her stylishness, her grace and beauty. I have enjoyed reading the book - and look forward to going through it again and again. thank you pamela - you have done an incredible job. Hoping this "book of dreams" will be launched pretty soon in Europe - it is so wonderful.

I am a huge admirerer of Audrey Hepburn, and knowing much about her, I have to say that this book is written very well. There are a few mistakes, but overlook them. This is hte first bio I have read on her where the author sounds as if she cared for Audrey very much, and there are no lies in the book. It contains over 90 pics of Audrey never before seen! It is s'wonderful!
