Famous Women In The 60’s: Then And Now

Audrey Hepburn

This list would not be complete without the fashion and beauty icon, Audrey Hepburn, who still holds a significant influence over today’s concept of style. During Hollywood’s Golden Age, Hepburn was among the people’s favorite leading ladies. She was recognized with an Academy Award, Golden Globe Award and a BAFTA Award for her performance in Roman Holiday, becoming the first actress to ever receive that much credit for a single performance.

However, people give her the most credit for her character Breakfast at Tiffany’s, in which she wore her iconic black outfit. The actress and humanitarian died in her sleep on January 20, 1993. Hepburn made a total of 31 high-quality films. Her elegance and style will always be remembered in the history of film. She was selected as “the top 100 movie stars of all time” by Empire magazine. The U.S. Postal Service has issued a 37-cent commemorative stamp commemorating her as a Hollywood legend and humanitarian.
