the most beautiful woman of all time

In ancient times, the "most beautiful woman of the world" was thought to be Helen of Troy. Her face launched a thousand ships, according to Christopher Marlowe.

In the absence of any lasting evidence, Helen of Troy is not even considered when it comes to any modern notions of beauty.

Two years ago the drinks company Evian compiled a list of 100 most beautiful women and asked a panel of experts in the beauty industry to name their top 10.

Audrey Hepburn was ranked number one. See - 'Audrey Hepburn 'most beautiful woman of all time', Sydney Morning Herald of 1 June 2004

She was so stylish that her own style was named (after her) - the Audrey Hepburn style, which is often imitated, even today.

Audrey Hepburn was born on 4 May 1929 (she died on 20 January).

She was a great actress. We love Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany's (except that awful Mickey Rooney caricature of the Mr Yunioshi character).

She had a few dogs as pets. Unfortunately she never gave any cats the opportunity to adopt her.

Ms Hepburn also did a lot of work for UNICEF when she was older. As she had suffered much during the war (World War II when Nazi Germany occupied the Netherlands), she could empathise with the plight of the needy.

Audrey Hepburn was not only beautiful on the outside, she was also beautiful on the inside.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


I thought today was going to be another normal day, but before my human went to work, he surprised me by taking me to Emily who was still in bed. Woohoo, Emily was still here!

So I spent a lot of the day cuddling up to her before she went out later in the afternoon. That dog Hagrid from next door also came into our yard (he must have made another hole in the fence). I think he wanted to play. Silly dog!
