30 day beauty challenge: day 13
I hope your weekend is going well. I am still crazy busy, but I keep trying to get everything done. While I try to do that...here is today's beauty challenge: Photo of Your Fashion/Style Icon. To me, Audrey Hepburn is perfection. She embodies everything I strive to be, and so many qualities I admire. Not only was she jaw-droppingly beautiful, she possessed so much class, grace, and elegance. There are so many reasons why Audrey has left a lasting impression: her style was classic and chic; her films were dynamic; she had a kind and giving heart.
Here are a few of my favourite Audrey quotes:
"Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm. As you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others."
"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
“You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.”
“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles”
“Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside but it doesn't help if your ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up.”
And here is my other style icon, Victoria Beckham, as Audrey:
