Something… about Audrey

A vision of loveliness… of cool elegance…

She forever conjures the ethereal… within me…

Of… love in the afternoon…

Of… Roman holidays…

Back to the days… when I too fell in love with our… “Dolce Vita”…

The… city eternal…

Rome

Luca Dotti… her son… reminisces about his beloved mother’s… “three decade love affair”… with Rome where she felt at ease and at home… free from the hustle and bustle… “the frenzy and obsession of youth and beauty… that was Hollywood“…

He talks with great tenderness about his “Fair Mother”… of private moments when a photographer took a photo of her near Campo de Fiori on a lazy family day…  She loved flowers especially white Petunias… having a gelato with her children… telling them bedtime stories…

He thought her… “perfect”…

She was always graceful… genuine… true to herself.

He quotes her saying…

“I have a… big nosebig feetflat chest

I’m not… beautiful… just a mixture of defects“…

How refreshingly… “L-u-v-e-r-l-y”…

Humility… becomes her…

For… only…

The truly beautiful… are that humble…

Unlike… her imitators…

Who are… “faux“… “nouveaux“…

Vacuous…

Audrey

Roman Holiday… filmed in 1953 shortly after WWII… catapulted her to fame…
