Admire my bravery for I'm about to make a statement that could result in fierce attacks and my becoming a blogosphere leper:
Audrey Hepburn bores me to tears.
Sure, she's pretty. But is that really so rare in Hollywood? And I've seen three of her movies and she can act. That's great. I feel very strongly that actors should be able to act. So, thus far, I see an Audrey Hepburn who is pretty, though not shockingly beautiful a la Sharon Tate, and can act though not as versatile as someone like Meryl Streep.
But let's get down to what she's really famous for: her fashion sense.
Frankly, I don't like it. So I'm a Mary-Kate and Cory fan, obviously my taste in clothing ranges more along the lines of Derelique, but I can appreciate classic styles.
Okay, maybe I can't, because I don't see what all the fuss over Jackie O and Marilyn Monroe is about either.
Just looking for pictures of her for the purpose of this post, my eyes started glazing over. A simple black dress...so stylish! so chic! so understated! It's genius!
Um, definitely not in my books.
So she takes her cancers through a long glorified filter and gets boyish haircuts. She is creepily thin and has 'doe' eyes. She wears gloves! Lots of gloves! She's a legend!
I don't see how girls my age can be so fascinated by her. But then again
I like my icons outrageous and not afraid to get a bit dirty.
Audrey is a bit too much of a lady.
But maybe she's not the problem here.
Maybe its me....
Nah. I just hope Audrey Hepburn fans aren't oversensitive.
