Who is Your Elegant Woman (role model)?

Elegance of Audrey Hepburn
Audrey Hepburn, the Elegant Woman

For me, that woman is (but not limited to), Audrey Hepburn.

audrey hepburn audrey hepburn

She moved gracefully , never sloppy, never tired, always bright and sparkly yet pleasantly quiet, thoughtful. She is full of love, graciousness and compassion. She is always on time, works hard at whatever she finds in her hands to do, whether it was coming to the set with all her lines memorized or to give a moving speech to thousands with her work at Unicef.

Despite her influential life, her heart and values were always with her family. She also enjoyed elegant fashion and good clothes, but they were not valued more than the feelings of others. She preferred a quiet life yet worked hard to provide a comfortable and normal life for her children. When she felt she had enough, she stopped work and relished in being a full time mother. Sometimes she only flew in to give an interview and flew back home the next day.

I was determined to find what was her secret. I've possible read every book and watched every movie about her.

How did she create her own brand of elegance that made the world fall in love with her?

Reality sets as I did my research on the life of Audrey Hepburn.

The Life of Audrey Hepburn

In trying to find elegance of Audrey Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn Essence I've stumbled upon a woman with imperfections and insecurities.

Yet she had a resolve made of steel to remain true to herself. This reflected in her unwillingness to fake anything, from her extremely body image insecurities and publicly failed marriages.

She struggled with her relationships and marriages before everyone, though she always remained strong, positive and gracious. She focused on others and it became more apparent as she neared the end of her life. Whether or not she was happy and satisfied with her life, no one really knows. She probably has no idea how much she has influenced and inspired us all, till this day.

As human as she was, she was nevertheless, the most elegant.

Classy Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn embodies the essence of elegance. Google "elegant woman" and she comes up number one. Search any poll for the "most elegant woman" and you'll see 40% of the people voted Audrey Hepburn.

Her elegance essence could not escape Audrey Hepburn films, even when she portrayed less angelic roles.

She was well-loved and nobody had a nasty thing to say about her.

So how do we achieve a similar refinement?

We first start by exploring the inner and outer workings of elegance.

As we grow in confidence, we'll develop our own brand of elegance.

See, as much as I look up to Audrey Hepburn, I do not want to be her. There are certain parts of my life I wouldn't trade with anyone in the world! We are all unique and different, thank God for that! We can never be our best by trying to be anyone else but ourselves.
