Audrey Hepburn - Audrey Style Audrey Hepburn - Audrey Style Audrey Style is a stylish, attractive coffee table book. However, it's just that: a coffee table book, best enjoyed by keeping it around (preferably on a coffee table), thumbing through the pictures every so often, and merely skimming the text in a couple of places. The pictures, of course, are great. After all, they're pictures of Audrey Hepburn! There's an enormous amount of pictures of her at various points in her career, and most of them truly seem to capture the grace, sophistication, and effortless style inherent in Audrey (and apparently missing in the world today.) The actual writing, though -- the \"book\" part -- falls short. It's a good read, and you'll learn a thing or two about Audrey, but nowhere is it genuinely insightful or analytical. The book is peppered with anecdotes that will make you think \"Oh, how nice!\" or \"Oh, how funny!\" ...but I'd like to think that there was more to Audrey than that. Too often, the book goes for unneccessary glorification. Every so often, you'll come across a quotation such as this: \"Audrey Hepburn was really great. She was nice and beautiful and stylish and everybody wanted to be like her. There can be no one else like her.\" -- Someone From Hollywood Audrey Style is adorned with this sort of fluffy adoration, and even if the praise is due, it gets a little stale after being repeated so often. I'm also a little disappointed that a book titled \"Audrey Style\" is more of a biography than an analysis of her style; although the \"style\" part is present, I would have liked to see much more.
