Audrey Hepburn: Angel Delight

March 17, 2010

.

Talent

.

… These are the lovely ladies and gorgeous girls of eras gone by whose beauty, ability, electricity and all-round x-appeal deserve celebration and – ahem – salivation here at George’s Journal

~~~

First up, fittingly, it’s a screen star who’s always been something of a must with me – and I’m certainly not the only one – she’s the epitome of graceful, dignified and delicate beauty, was a comic actress par excellence with buckets full of a pathos and is missed greatly all around the world…

Profile

Name: Audrey Kathleen Hepburn-Ruston (Edda van Heemstra)
