Audrey- Actress And Ambassador

It's more than 50 years since she portrayed Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's, and almost 25 years since her death from cancer - but Audrey Hepburn remains an icon of style and beauty.  Steph dressed as HG for a fancy dress party, and since her teens has had the film poster on her wall [a stylish Italian version thereof, bought on holiday in Florence]
Over the next few weeks, Christie's Auction house will be selling off some of AH's possessions. Her two sons have asked that these be in small lots, not large collections. They recognise how much their mother was loved and respected, and so want to make these things accessible to lots of people rather than a few wealthy collectors. I hope this is successful. 
As well as being a gifted actress, she was a loving mother- and for five years, she worked as an Ambassador for Unicef. Audrey herself knew what it was like for children to suffer - born in Belgium to a Dutch mother, she lived through the German occupation of the Low Countries, suffering extreme malnutrition and depression. 
But despite the privations of her childhood, Audrey grew up to be a gracious, graceful woman.
It says in 1 Peter 3:4 "Your beauty should consist of your true inner self, the ageless beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of the greatest value in God's sight" 
I think that Audrey's words below reflect the truth of this verse.
