Audrey, Tiffany's and the Fish

As promised, my thoughts on Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's and some thoughts about the Fish.  First of all, Audrey Hepburn has been one of my favorite and most loved actresses since I was a young girl.  No matter what others say, I feel like she always presented herself as a classy and talented chick!  Her style was impeccable in my young eyes and I thought she was, hands down, the most beautiful woman alive.  Looking back now, I still see her classic and timeless beauty and her style still influences people today.  Here are some of my favorite photos of Audrey:

Breakfast at Tiffany's

This one reminds me of my mom.  :)

Love the napkin hat!!

She makes even a cowboy hat look elegant!

Older, but still stunning!

Such a beautiful woman in my opinion, both inside and out.  I always liked, too, that she could make fun of herself and act silly.  A quality that I admire.

I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's (for about the millionth time) with the Fish and her boyfriend the other night. What a trooper he was!  The question came up as to what Holly Golightly's real "job" was in the movie.  This came after she talked about getting $50 for the Powder Room.  We talked about it and came to the conclusion that most people have come to, that Holly was a high class escort.  Thank God, the movie was made in the 60's, so innuendo and subtlety was still in effect.  If that movie was "re-made" and let's hope no one ever does, it'll be filled with language, adult nudity, and sexual scenes.  Now don't get me wrong, I don't mind that stuff in my movies.  In fact Hangover is one of my favorite movies to date and I am eagerly awaiting the third one, but I love the way some of those older movies were made.  You actually had to think and wonder a little.  Aaaahhh good old classic movies.  I watched Splendor in the Grass the other day with Natalie Wood.  Another great movie.  This summer, the Fish and I plan to watch as many old movies as we can.

I suppose its time to start working today.  Reality.  Boo!
