Editorial Reviews

Review

“A tongue-in-chic guide to tackling life’s dilemmas with Hepburn’s moxie. Oversize sunglasses not included.”
People (Mother’s Day Book Gift Guide Pick)

“A delightful presentation of the life of this wonderful actress as well as a treasure trove of advice for becoming a woman of character and grace. We should all heed Hepburn’s lessons.”
Library Journal

“From longtime fans who’ve seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s countless times to those who discovered the gorgeous gamine via a Gap commercial.…WWAD? offers thought-provoking and fun anecdotes, quizzes, and decorating tips, but it also contains plenty of biographical detail.…A well-rounded read for the Audrey aficionado, or anyone who wants to live life with a bit more panache.”

But I just couldn't get into it. I am a huge Audrey Hepburn fan and, after reading "What Would Jackie Do?" (a book that I absolutely love) I figured this book would be even better. It is just a biography of Audrey's life, lightly touching on how she would have handled particular situations. It was a good book, but the title was misleading. If you want a slightly different type of Audrey biography, then this is a good book. However, if you want a guide to living an Audrey-inspired life, you may not want to get this one-it will leave you disappointed.

Are you looking for wisdom gleaned from the life and style of Audrey Hepburn? If so, then this book is for you.

This utterly charming book is a clever blend of biography and commentary that is meant to show us how we can emulate one of the all-time style icons not only in her fashion sense, but also in the remarkable way she lived her life.

The book travels somewhat chronologically through Audrey's life: through her childhood experiences in the war, her fantastic rise to stardom, her failures and successes in love and marriage, her dedication to charity, and finally to her passing from cancer in 1993. Woven into the elucidation of the many chapters of Audrey's life are author Pamela Keogh's observations on how we can apply Audrey's wisdom to similar situations in our own lives.

I especially enjoyed reading about how Ms. Hepburn insisted on being professional in all her work sitations, and was noted for being gracious and charming with all the people she came in contact with. Unlike much of Hollywood today, Audrey was a model of decorum.

This is much more than a book on Audrey's style...so much so that if you are interested soley in information on Ms. Hepburn's wardrobe choices, you may be disappointed. While there are nuggests of fashion advice throughout the book, the real focus is on how to live a remarkable life. In this sense, Ms. Keogh has created a fascinating and remarkably original book that anyone, regardless of their interest in fashion, can learn from and enjoy.

As a huge Hepburn fan, I found this book to be just...okay. There are no pics of Audrey, just mimikky drawings. And though the advice is good, I don't beleive Audrey Hepburn would have populated any store just because the author thinks she would if Audrey were alive today. Furthermore, the book suggests that you can only shop here or buy that to be "truly Audrey." But what everone needs is to carry her spirit more than her "look." Unfortuneately, this book never really shares this enough with the reader. A far better book would be "How To Be Lovely," by Mellisa Hellstern. It is brimming with quotes and photos of Audrey at every stage of her life, and isn't afraid to show the close-ups of Audrey as she aged without the help of a scalpel. Audrey Hepburn proved the old adage, To be beautiful on the outside, you must first be beautiful on the inside.

Format: Hardcover
I'm aware that there have been lots of good reviews about this book and frankly, I'm baffled. I have never written a negative review about a book before and it hurts me to do so, but I feel a responsibility to shed light on this book before someone like me buys it and puts it down in regret.
I expected that this was going to be a witty, informative book, loaded with little-known Audrey stories and information about how readers could practice Audrey-like style and manners, in today's world. However, it turned out to be poorly constructed and repetitive, utilizing barely-helpful guidelines and anecdotes. The author's text is conflicted; sometime modern, other times old-fashioned, sometimes reaching for humor, other times taking itself too seriously. She begins the book by demeaning herself and the reader by talking about how much better Audrey Hepburn is than all of us and mentions that of course, we could never achieve Audrey's level of beauty, but we can try. She often speaks in a tiresome Royal "we" as though she exists within Audrey's inner circle.
Despite all of these issues, I did learn some interesting things about Audrey to which I might not have otherwise been made privy. Unfortunately, there weren't enough of them to keep me interested in the read. If you are a person who values the written word and the intentions that lie within, you will probably not enjoy this book.

This is a fun read. A clever look at how Audrey Hepburn lived her life that is a must for fans and interesting even for casual readers. Part mini-biography and part fashion/lifesyle guide, it's cleverly written and never dull. Well researched (there are a few glitches here and there: Audrey did not play a lesbian in "Children's Hour", Shirley Maclaine did. And there is no evidence that Kate Hepburn was bisexual...)there were tidbits even I had never read about Audrey before (and I thought I'd read it all. Audrey and JFK? It's here!) Audrey was a class act in her life and her career and the world would be a better place if more people followed the principles that guided her life.

The author has dipped into the "Audrey well" once too many times--a kinda shameful, pandering bit of fluff that really needn't have been published--there's too many excellent Audrey hepburn books out there to have to bother with this one
