Guest Post: Audrey Hepburn

****The following guest post comes to us from Mariah Smile. Mariah is absolutely adorable and has one of the cutest blogs ever! Her awesome photos and interesting stories never fail to make ME smile. You should definitely check out her blog and I really hope you all enjoy her lovely guest post!****



When I saw that Jennifer was planning on having some guest bloggers over to play, I knew that I wanted to be a part of it! And my first thought on my blog topic would be none other than Audrey Hepburn! Audrey is my favorite actress and was very fashionable, which reminded me of our very own Jennifer Fabulous! Plus, she wore a number of dresses that inspire me with my own upcoming wedding!



My favorite Audrey movie is "Sabrina" majorly due to this dress:



If only this could be my wedding dress!


Another wedding dress she wore is the one in Funny Face:



I found this story about Audrey Hepburn's own wedding dress she had made for herself. Well, Audrey didn't end up getting married at that time and told the designers "I want my dress to be worn by another girl for her wedding, perhaps someone who couldn’t ever afford a dress like mine, the most beautiful, poor Italian girl you can find." This story just represents what a generous heart this woman really had.

Audrey ended up marrying twice; the first time to actor Mel Ferrer in 1954...







...and the second time to an Italian doctor by the name of Andrea Dotti in 1969.



You can read more about Audrey on this website and about the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund.
