Who doesn’t Adore Audrey Hepburn? With her elegance, grace, and unique gamine beauty, Ms. Hepburn embodies timeless charm, classic style, unquestionable taste, and enviable poise. Yet even bigger than this lovely Brit’s celebrity and glam is her humanitarian heart. Unlike most celebrity personalities who are normally caught up in their bubbles, Audrey Hepburn was unrelenting in her efforts to give back and contribute to the good of mankind. As a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, she utilized whatever influence she had to support and boost her philanthropic endeavors.
More so, Ms. Hepburn had a healthy dose of optimism-the kind that is viral especially when one is constantly exposed to it. Her words of wisdom, which reflected her positive attitude towards life, altruistic undertakings and carefree spirit, have become my life compass. She is my icon and one of my role models. So, even way before I found the love of my life, I was very sure that if I ever decide to get married, one of my wedding themes would be in honor of my darling Audrey.
Thus, our Breakfast at Tiffany’s-inspired photo-shoot. I admit, it was through my manipulations that I actually got my laid-back, metal shirt and jeans-wearing fiancé to pose ala fashion magazine cover-style and I love him more for indulging me . When he said yes to my idea, I felt like the happiest girl in the world. Seeing the photos later on, even Ian agreed that my insistence was well worth it. Below are some of the shots taken for our engagement session. I hope you enjoy our version of “Breakfast” as much as we did. Bon appetit!
