    Audrey Hepburn is a paradox to me. I see her as a beautiful object but not never sexually attractive. And that photo above, while it emphasizes her profile, it also emphasizes her smoking, which is 1) corporate america-whore and 2) gross.

    First thing I noticed was her eyelashes.

    While I abhor smoking, my Audrey can do no wrong.

    i'm with brian. she's certainly elegant, but not at all sexy, and not even that pretty in my opinion.

    While I can understand what Brian's saying re: beauty/sex appeal, I would also say that Audrey's so beautiful that I don't think I'd ever *miss* the sex-appeal factor. Audrey and Grace Kelly are the REAL reason that's The Greatest Generation.

    No better kind ;D

    I love the picture. I must be alone in sharing LK's appreciation of the aesthetic of cigarettes. And I don't even smoke (cigarettes.)

    I remember watching How to Steal A Million when I was about 12 and totaly falling in love. As for the smoking, gotta give her a pass on that, when was that picture taken '66, '67? Everybody and their mothers were sucking down a pack a day back then.

    I agree that Grace Kelly was more beautiful (and my favourite actress) but Audrey was so damned elegant. I loved Roman Holiday.

    Damn, can't see the picture. I think the firewall at work is blocking it...

    Anyway, i love Audrey Hepburn. Roman Holiday = best movie ever. As I've said before, it's not just a looks thing with Audrey, she's the most enchanting woman to ever grace the screen imo.

    Audrey is still with us . . .

    Not even close, not in a hundred million years, not even when the ozone finally goes, and all life on earth is dead and the sun goes supernova, and, well you get the point.
