While so many young girls aspire to be the next Kim Kardashian or Kylie Jenner, iconic Hollywood ladies are simply forgotten. But one leading lady that can never truly be gone is Audrey Hepburn. This spunky, soft toned “it” girl was not only a classy figure that young girls could look up too, but also an award winning actress and a fashion icon.
Here are four Hepburn films that made the world fall in love with her (and she was able to do it with her clothes on). Before you stalk the Kardashians in Instagram, check out these films and see what a little bit of class and personality can do for a career.
1. Roman Holiday
“Roman Holiday” was considered Hepburn’s break out role. Starring along side Gregory Peck, Hepburn played Princess Ann, a sheltered Princess longing for a bit of adventure. After escaping her guardians in Rome, she encounters an American journalist, who takes care of her and shows her around. After discovering who she really is, he conceals her identity and protects her from scandal (which is hard for a journalist) because he has fallen in love with her. “I’ve never been alone with a man before, even with my dress on. With my dress off, it’s MOST unusual.”
