I have a friend who, whenever I used to do anything he found charming, would exclaim, “how Audrey of you!” My darlings, there can be only one.


At Ciro’s – Billy Wilder, Mel Ferrer, Audrey Hepburn, Maurice Chevalier, James Stewart:


      • My last visit to NYC I got up at 5 in the dead of winter and walked from 7th ave and 57th over to Tiffany’s (ran into Tony Bennett out for his morning stroll on 59th…good morning -good morning) I bought a cup of coffee and a Danish and had breakfast at Tiffany’s …it was so cold I almost died!

      • There’s a gentleman in my neighborhood who I see walking before dawn in a Greek sailor’s cap, shorts and always an immaculate white t-shirt or sweat shirt. He’s probably about the same age as Mr. Bennett, I think these guys are onto something.

  1. She was such a radiant, intelligent, elegant woman.

    I had one interaction with her. I worked at Polo RL in the early 90s. They had a book that Audrey and Ralph collaborated on and she was at 867 Madison Ave for the signing. She came up to my department and smiled at me.

  2. George Kaplan

    Oh, Vickie, how Audrey of you! (your friend sounds charming. I may now have to alter that phrase so it becomes “How very “Vickie” of You!” Ouch?!) Ah, she was indeed irreplaceable and, apparently, a very fine person to boot. Ms Hepburn looks incandescently lovely in each of those pictures, but she looks particularly adorable in the second – regardez her hairdo!

  3. George Kaplan

    Oh, I don’t know, Vickie. There are women who haven’t been in their mid-twenties for a little while who could pull that look off beautifully (winks).

    You can never, ever, ever do too many posts on Audrey. Ever.

    And Vickie, in a recent email to Mr. Kaplan (yes Beguiling has gone viral) I said that you two remind me of a Hepburn (the other one)/Tracy duo with your banter…see above for proof.
