Audrey Hepburn faced a countless number of struggles but still continued to keep going and made it possible to make an impact in the world.

Hepburn’s style was iconic. She expressed her style in many ways, from the movies she starred in to simple walks down the street. Hepburn premiered in films during the 1950s through the 70s. Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s was a favorable film for many. She earned the Academy Award for Best Actress for Roman Holiday, filmed in 1954.

Hepburn was born in Belgium on May 4, 1929. She spent most of her time when she was young in a boarding school in England. During World War II, she studied at the Arnhem Conservatory in the Netherlands. As the Nazis invaded her country, her family had a hard time surviving. Her mother and father divorced when Hepburn was six. Her father was a Nazi sympathizer.
