If you've not seen Roman Holiday, Funny Face or Paris When it Sizzles, run out and rent them now! These three films are among Audrey's greatest work.
Though she was fabulous in every role she played, Audrey's most meaningful work was not onscreen. Her heart was as big as her talent and she was appointed as a UNICEF Ambassador in 1989, a post she held until her death in 1993.
From UNICEF's website:
"I can testify to what UNICEF means to children, because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II," said actress Audrey Hepburn on her appointment as a Goodwill Ambassador in 1989. "I have a long-lasting gratitude and trust for what UNICEF does." As a result of her work for UNICEF over subsequent years, that gratitude is mutual.
So today, we celebrate Audrey Hepburn as both a preppy icon and an inspiring humanitarian.
