An Audrey Hepburn TV Show Is Coming, Now Let's Look Into Why I Love Her So Fucking Much

Audrey Hepburn is a grade A badass who knows how to act and dress, but, most importantly, she has become a symbol of elegance and grace through herhumanitarian work for UNICEF as a Goodwill Ambassador. Now, a television show about her life is in the works, and we can only hope that it incorporates Audrey’s love of fashion into the mix.

When Audrey Hepburn crosses my mind, I automatically think about one of her most iconic movies, Breakfast at Tifffany’s.

I also think of the first time I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s with my grandmother on an old, box TV in the mid-2000's. It was the first time I had been introduced to Audrey, and I remember thinking about how I wanted her tiara-looking headpiece during the first few minutes of the movie where we see her character looking longingly through a Tiffany’s & Co. window display.

And I eventually found out there were more movies with this enigmatic woman, to which I binge watched throughout my adolescent and teens. From Funny Face to Roman Holiday, I found myself being drawn in by Audrey’s acting and beauty during her time in the Golden Age of Hollywood.

It wasn’t until my later teens that I started looking into Audrey’s background outside of her acting and modeling. I always knew—somehow—that she was a fashion icon (I think it’s easy to make that assumption). After all, she was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.

What I didn’t know, however, was that she a humanitarian—she was someone who willingly dedicated the second half of her career to helping children in developing countries after disasters, such as war and famine, had struck.

“I speak for those children who cannot speak for themselves, children who have absolutely nothing but their courage and their smiles, their wits and their dreams.”

—Audrey Hepburn


She is a hero. Not just to me, but too people across the globe. The name “Audrey Hepburn” is a household name, so when a television show was announced by British Vogue on April 14, I knew that I had to write something about her—an article, an ode, a love letter of some sort.


Audrey is more than her doe eyes, acting skills, and Givenchy dresses.

Though the fashion world sees her as their icon, she will always be the world’s love first.
