11 Audrey Hepburn Quotes That Will Propel You To Look Beyond The Style Icon

Designer Givenchy’s muse, the glamorous face from Breakfast At Tiffany’s, a stunning screen legend, the world sees Audrey Hepburn as a woman who emblematised the era of cropped fringe and a level of chic.

In the enormous world of fashion and beauty, Audrey was a child with secret dreams and the vigour to have it all. In the end, she did justice to “icon”, a term that was endearingly bestowed upon her.

Beneath her stylish façade, Audrey Hepburn was a woman of substance, a woman who was more of a giver than a taker and a woman who made for herself, a worthy life.

While many laud her for her graceful fashion sense and spotless beauty and that devastatingly beautiful half-smile, there are many who vouched for her role of a humanitarian with UNICEF. She travelled to the poorest of countries, helping malnourished children.

She was not the one who made imbecile remarks on contemporaries or injustice of the world; instead, she made blatant statements about life, people that were packed with wit, wisdom, humility and inspiration.

In an attempt to document how easy it is to lead a happy and content life, we have compiled 11 Audrey Hepburn quotes that will stir a new respect for this iconic woman.
