The 15 Lessons Audrey Hepburn and her films have taught me

For those of you readers who know me personally, you know Audrey Hepburn is one of my idols. She was bothย timelessly beautiful and effortlessly graceful. Not to mention she had to-die-for style. Today marks what would have been her 86th birthday. In remembrance, I have compiled a list of the 20 lessons I have learned from the woman she was and the roles she played.

1. Tiffany’s is a little slice of heaven.

“The only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there.” – Holly Golightly, Breakfast at Tiffany’s

3. Be a strong woman. Set your standards high.

4. But it’s okay to not always have everything together. “A little nervous breakdown can work wonders for a girl.” (as originally stated by Rory Gilmore)
