Enchantment: The Life of Audrey Hepburn

Hepburn
More than a decade after her death in 1993, Audrey Hepburn remains a movie and fashion icon of movie style, not to mention the epitome of elegance.

After beginning her career in ballet, she moved into West End musicals and a few minor film parts before being selected to star in a stage version of  "Gigi", then her first major screen role –  the Oscr-winning Roman Holiday, then a whole stream of successful movies, including of course, the excellent Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Enchantment: The Life of Audrey Hepburn by Donald Spoto on her life covers all of that, plus the (very) private side – failed marriages and the work she undertook after retiring from movies, most notably as Special Ambassador for UNICEF.

If you want to know about  the elusive, beautiful, talented and vulnerable woman, this should be a good place to start.
