There is something undoubting magic about old movies. Something considered even pure, truly original movies. The inspiration arrives after a little marathon of Audrey Hepburn movies. The more I see, the more I am convinced of the style and charm of the most elegant actress, in my opinion, of all times.
These movies, a legacy of culture more than 50 years in the past, make you think of life before and how it was perceived. But, between all the subjects I could comment on, I want to enter a little further in what I have learned from this actress whose style I wish I could someday posses.
The 7 rules:
1. Style and elegance is never lost. Even in the times that would appear most embarrassing, those are the ones that reveal what you truly are inside. Do not loose composure, keep calm and keep on.
2. You can tell a lot about a person from the jewelry they possess. The details, elements that may pass unnoticed, but are part of an each person and collectively create and individual.
3. A touch of French is required in life. One of the most romantic languages around, that small, but undoubtedly presence of something exotic and even charming.
4. Change happens, its inevitable, but essence prevails. It is childish to believe that life can be walked without no changes in it and that people, like rocks, don’t budge. Everything changes, transforms. What you can do is give it a welcome, and accept it.
5. You have to reach for the unreachable. Search for that you adore, no matter how impossible it may seem. If you try, you can.
6. Just like change, always wait for the switch on the switch of the switch. Life is full of surprises. It’s what makes it interesting.
7. That smile, look, laugh, that unusual way we all have inside, is what connects us and makes each person special. It’s vital not to loose it.
Ps. Extra Rule
8. Now, I don’t think I’m an expert in all things Audrey or life. But through out her movies I saw real elegance as a way of life, and that life itself has to be lived as it deserves.
