Audrey

My mum bought me the book What Would Audrey Do for christmas and I finally just got around to reading it. I have to say although I have always thought of her as beautiful, that is pretty much where my interest ends. She's pretty amazing; she has lived a crazy life and suffered through a world war. She just seems to come across as an all round very grounded woman who takes life and its hardships for what they are. As for her style she was absolutely a trendsetter and way before her time. The book openly slags off Paris Hilton as an example of everything Audrey wasn't, which made me laugh because I think Paris likes to think of herself as quite sophisticated these days...idiot! Although I think you would have to live in some fantasy-lala land to live today the way Audrey did, I am sure we can all learn a little from her ladylike ways.
