I love fashion and read magazines all the time showing amazing looking girls with perfect bodies displaying outfits I could only dream of, not just from the cost perspective but more importantly because I don’t have that figure and will never have it despite watching out what I eat and keeping fit.

Audrey Hepburn made a stunning debut in William Wyler’s smash hit Roman Holiday hitting the screen like a bomb. Some said: “This slim little person with the winged eyebrows and Nefertiti head and throat is the world’s darling”, just to give you an idea of what Audrey  has been since her very first steps in Hollywood. She was the real Hollywood’s sweetheart; on the other hand, Hubert de Givenchy was a young stylist preparing his very own first collections and was declared a real enfant-prodige in the French Fashion industry.
