Anniversary of a Fashion Icon

Decades after her death, Audrey Hepburn remains an icon of unparalleled style, beauty and talent. She earned her first Oscar for Roman Holiday in 1953, and with a posthumous Grammy in 1994 she became the fifth person to win the Oscar, Grammy, Emmy and Tony awards. In addition to her amazing work in such films as Breakfast at Tiffany’sand My Fair Lady, Hepburn was a longtime supporter of UNICEF, becoming increasingly devoted to the organization in her later years. Unfortunately, cancer of the appendix claimed her life at 63, just one month after winning the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her work as a UNICEF good-will ambassador. This month we celebrate 22 years since this style icon left us.
