A Charmed LifeeBook - 2012
Hepburn's acting career began after a series of minor revue and film roles in London. Hepburn was spotted by the writer Colette, who immediately cast her in the central role of a Broadway adaptation of her story, Gigi. Soon afterwards, Hepburn was offered a role alongside Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday , for which she collected an Oscar for Best Actress. The book highlights all her success that followed: she won the Tony Award for Best Actress for Ondine , captivated audiences as Natasha in War and Peace, and was highly praised for her brilliance in a serious role in The Nun's Story . Hepburn's style was perfection and her clothes--many of them designed by Givenchy, who dressed her for Funny Face in 1957--placed her on the world's Best Dressed Women list for several consecutive years. Her personality and sensuous yet untouchable beauty made her irresistible to the public. On Hepburn's death, Liz Taylor said, "God has a most beautiful new angel now that will know just what to do in heaven."
