Whatever she did, Audrey Hepburn, was the true “Mistress of Charm”. Her blue-blood birth in Brussels,always showed in her lady-like behavior, whatever she did. She managed to survive the war with her mother and moved to London where she began to study ballet. After a brief theater career she was shortly discovered by Colette herself to star in the 1951 Broadway play Gigi. She received an Academy Award and instant stardom for her first Hollywood role in Roman Holiday (1953). Audrey reached the pinnacle of her career when she was selected to play Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) Never has a role proved more forever-lasting for an actress.
