I’ve been waiting for a book like What Would Audrey Do? Timeless Lessons for Living with Grace and Style by Pamela Keogh for a long time. It’s a book that gives biographical information, new anecdotes about Audrey Hepburn, combined with great advice on style, dating, décor and other tips for any modern woman (or certain men) of all ages. It’s light enough reading to take to the beach, but also has substance so you won’t feel brain-dead. You could buy it for your mom for Mother’s Day or your sister or friends for their birthday.
Did you know that Audrey Hepburn’s typical breakfast was a poached egg and toast with jam? That she loved feeding her dogs’ buttered toast, or that she didn’t wear makeup at home? She flew coach when she went on trips for UNICEF. I can’t picture Angelina doing that, though she probably uses her private plane at her own expense to shuttle everyone.
This is a great book for women who want to figure out how to have that Audrey Hepburn IT factor. It gives practical advice on how to live like Audrey no matter if you’re rich, poor, young or old. Later today I will be posting an interview with author Pamela Keogh that is a must read. Did I mention that yours truly is mentioned in a list of “Very Audrey” people on page 197? I will be doing a giveaway in conjunction with the interview post, so check back if you want a gratis copy of this fabulous book.
