Commemorative Speech Sample: Tribute to Audrey Hepburn


Attention-Getting Device

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. 
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. 
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. 
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. 
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.”– Audrey Hepburn.
I quote Audrey Hepburn; Audrey Hepburn’s words are words to live by. Her words are a reminder that true beauty comes from within.

Thesis Statement

Audrey Hepburn was an elegant spirit whose life has inspired millions of people and many generations to come.


Audrey Hepburn is one of the most recognized Hollywood actresses’ in the world. Audrey Hepburn was an iconic actress, a humanitarian, and a humble human being.


I. Audrey Hepburn is considered to be one of the best actresses of all time.

Audrey Hepburn’s acting abilities made her an iconic starlet. Her first starring role was in the 1953 romance film “Roman Holiday” this film made her an instant star. She played a princess who runs away and falls in love with a journalist. Many audiences were enchanted with her elegance, grace and sincerity. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress for that role. Her most famous role of course was in Breakfast at Tiffany’s when she played a sophisticated hurt soul, Holly Golightly. Audrey’s charming acting skills made Breakfast at Tiffany’s the classic film it is today. Throughout her career she played a young woman with Cinderella like transformations. However, she also had the ability to play more dramatic roles, like in “A Nun’s Story” in which she won an Oscar nomination for. With all these great films and awards, I still truly believe what made her a great actress was her compassion. She had compassion for the characters, and…...

My Name

...Kristen Ngan is the name. The type of girl who is very adventurous, creative, “kikay”, loves collecting girly things, fashion and colors! I can say that every object in my plate, symbolizes me or my personality. The “Pink Shoe” and the “Pearl Bracelet” represents Fashion. I've always had a 'Passion For Fashion’. Ever since I was a little girl,  I have been reading fashion and beauty magazines. I was always wondering how women could bring out the best in themselves. In fashion, my biggest inspirations are definitely Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Gabrielle Chanel. They show the difference between a woman and a lady. In my free time I like to read fashion magazines, fashion and beauty blogs. I love to surf the internet to look up all sorts of fashion online shops. Not just to see what’s new, but to get inspired as well. Being involved into “fashion” is really a big thing for me. Because in that way i help myself increase my self-esteem. My interest in fashion started at a young age. I enjoyed spending my days alone playing with my Barbies. I repurposed their clothes with a stapler and tape and gave them haircuts to match their look. The “Green Ribbon” represents how girly I am. The “Red Nail Polish”. When I became a teenager, like I said, I love colors! and so I’ve been very addicted to nail polish. Its just I’m so plain, without them. And I really take good care of my nails. Also, believed in the saying “Nails Are Like Jewels, Don't Use Them Like Tools”. The......

Audrey Hepburn

...Audrey Hepburn She was a role model, an award-winning actress, later a fashion and cultural icon, daughter, and the only child, of a wealthy English banker and a Dutch baroness. She was born on May 4th, 1929 in Brussels, Belgium, and actually she was blue-blood from the beginning. After the divorce of her parents, she and her mother went to London. In London she went to a private girls school, but later, after her mother moved back to the Netherlands, she suffered from a depression and malnutrition because of the hard times during the Nazi occupation. After the long awaited liberation, Audrey went to a famous and big ballet school located in London, and later on began a modeling career. Her life as a model was graceful and sometimes it seemed like she had found her niche in life. She was beautiful and she became a symbol of style, class and elegance – raising everything she touched. While during a model job, a producer spotted her, and she was fast signed to be a part of a new world – the acting-world. Later she had a speaking role in the film Young Wives’ tale, but it was not a big role. She wanted more. She wanted something greater, and at the age of 22 she headed to New York to try her luck over there. She fast gained her enormous popularity, and finally she reached her breakthrough. In her role in “Roman Holiday”, she became very famous, and loved by the audience, but also by the young people, and especially the female part. She also received an Oscar as Best......

Audrey Flack

...During her time at College, Flack worked in the realm Abstract Expressionism in the New York art scene, but as a female she had to act like “one of the boys” to be taken seriously as an artist. During her time at Art College, she became interested in Realism. In 1965 she painted her first portrait from a photograph, which lead to her isolation from a popular art community because at the time it was acceptable to paint a work that was from photograph, but was unheard of to create a work that looked like a photograph. Flack has dedicated her work almost solely to ancient, female or feminine images. Flacks Vanitas’ paintings are part of still life portraits. Vanitas’ is one of her symbolic still life painting where each element of the painting has a meaning. Her work tells us an important story which draws in the viewers to consider what each symbol means. For her paintings, she used a variety of colors, mainly primary course colors; red, blue and yellow. She drew a variety of objects which were very close to each other. The objects she drew, she had her own perspective towards it. She painted her work on canvases using watercolors, acrylic paints and block paints. The reason she did painting got to do with realism was because, she was very much interested in things that had a important meaning and she thought the best way to express this is through paintings. I think her work is extremely beautiful. I like the way she used acrylic paints to paint her work and the different......

...the first advertisers to employ dead celebrities was Diet Coke back in 1991. The TV commercial was staged in a hot nightclub, with Elton John leading the band. Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney and Louis Armstrong were all incorporated using old movie and TV clips - and the technique opened the doors to a whole new casting conversation. This week on Under The Influence, we look at Marketing Dead Celebrities. It's become a $2 billion dollar industry. The marketing of dead celebrities not only attracts lots of big brands, but lots of controversy. We'll trace the use of dead celebrities in advertising, we'll analyze "Dead Q Scores," we'll list the top-grossing dead celebrities, we'll tell some fascinating stories about ads that featured Audrey Hepburn, Michael Jackson, Fred Astaire, Kurt Cobain and Marilyn Monroe - and how their families felt about those commercials. Hope you join us. It's a brave new world, now that nobody's dead anymore. Twenty-six miles from Palm Springs, in Indio, California, a large event is staged every year.

Though the Gucci Accessories Collection was well received, it proved to be the force that brought the Gucci dynasty crashing down. Within a few years, the Perfumes division began outselling the Accessories division. The newly-founded wholesaling business had brought the once-exclusive brand to over a thousand stores in the United States alone with the GAC line, deteriorating the brand’s standing with fashionable customers. "In the 1960s and 1970s," writes Vanity Fair) editor Graydon Carter, "Gucci had been at the pinnacle of chic, thanks to icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Jacqueline Onassis. But by the 1980s, Gucci had lost its appeal, becoming a tacky airport brand." Soon, cheap...

Famous Personality

...The character I have chosen is Holly Golightly, from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. This has been my all time favorite movie. In the movie, Audrey Hepburn plays a female character that is very spontaneous and spunky. I feel that throughout the movie she shows to be an extraversion. She meets a neighbor who is amazed how she talks and lives her life. She throws a party in her apartment and is very sociable and seems to be star of the show. Holly comes off to other people as very friendly and affectionate. Throughout the movie, the neighbor “Fred” finds out that deep down she has a lot of problems. He finds her to be in the neuroticism category. She is nervous about her past and she is insecure of herself. Holly feels the need to sneak up to her neighbor’s apartment because she is lonely. As soon as he asks her why she is crying, she becomes high strung and a bit upset. Holly and “Fred” go out into New York City and have a fun day together. They pick original things for them to do and some are creative. At this point in the movie I feel as though she falls into the openness to experience category. She has a great imagination in which “Fred” points out and is attracted to. Towards the end of the movie, Holly’s former husband comes to find her. When she finds out he is in New York, she becomes nervous again. I feel as though at this point she is in the agreeableness category. She agrees to go back with him and is forgiving. She seems to be soft hearted to her former husband.......

The Judging of Beauty

...The Judging of Beauty The dictionary defines beauty as a beautiful or pleasing thing or person, in particular a beautiful woman; an excellent specimen or example of something; (the beauties of) the pleasing or attractive features of something; the best feature or advantage of something. But it refers to only the outward appearance of things. So is the inherent beauty excluded from the judging of the beauty? In the real world, we consider Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn as beauty. Both of them are celebrities with a nice-looking face, perfect body and great fashion taste. And they have the characteristics indicated in the dictionary to be such beauty. So people would classify them as particularly beautiful women. Clearly, there are huge differences between these two beauties. Marilyn Monroe was a major sex symbol during the 1950s and 1960s. She was beautiful and sexy on television. In a contrast, Monroe’s personal life was a mess. We can clearly see from her personal life that she did not have any beauty inside of her. She not only had a naked shoot for a magazine; had three marriages; rely excessively on drugs and pills but also had affairs with both John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy. Various marriages, naked photo shoots and drug abuse might not say it all, but having affair with two men clearly can. It’s on a moral prospective. Her affairs Zhang 2 with two men meant she did not put herself on a right position. Such a woman had no connotation because of her......

...Unicef saved Audrey Hepburn's life as a child in Holland at the end of the war just as it was going to save the Sudanese boy's life, and that is one reason why she is so proud to be a Unicef ambassador. It is the repaying of a very personal debt. But there is a deeper connection with the war years, one which brings her to London this week, not only to raise money for Unicef through public performance, but to pay tribute to the unquenchable spirit of the child in trouble through the life of one individual, Anne Frank. On Thursday, at the Barbican, Audrey Hepburn and Michael Tilson Thomas conducting the London Symphony Orchestra will be presenting their version of the life of Anne Frank through the words of her diary and Tilson Thomas's specially composed music. It is a project which has returned both Tilson Thomas and Audrey Hepburn to their own youth through their identification with the undisguised turbulence of Anne Frank's own adolescence, one in which every emotion was intensified by incarceration and fear of capture. This is powerful material enough, but for Hepburn the connection with Anne Frank is even more personal. When I met her to talk about it she was perched in a plush Claridges suite. I was expecting sophistication, elegance and a polished film-star performance. I had been told that she was every good thing from hard-working, generous and thoughtful to charming and downright divine. This undersold her, making her sound bland. The woman I met surprised me......

I Dunno delinquent, a juvenile delinquent. My parents ignored me, my teachers sneered at me, and my friends; they neglected me. One night I asked my mother to teach me how to appreciate the values in life. Would you care what she told me? "Stop bothering me! Can’t you see? I had to dress up for my mahjong session, some other time my child". I turned to my father to console me, but, what a wonderful thing he told me. "Child, here’s 500 bucks, get it and enjoy yourself, go and ask your teachers that question". And in school, I heard nothing but the echoes of the voices of my teachers torturing me with these words. "Why waste your time in studying, you can’t even divide 100 by 5! Go home and plant sweet potatoes". I may have the looks of Audrey Hepburn, the calmly voice of Nathalie Cole. But that’s not what you can see in me. Here’s a young girl who needs counsel to enlighten her way and guidance to strengthen her life into contentment. Honorable judge, friends and teachers…is this the girl whom you commented a juvenile delinquent?...

Hair Trends of 2011

...Hair trends of 2010 Hair style is a reflection of a human's personality. It depicts a person's confidence, comfort ability and coordination with the world. A flock of hair falling in front of one's eye is no more considered a lack of attention but as a style statement. And who doesn't agree today, that to appear in everyone's heart you got to maintain your appearance. Hair takes a huge portion of it. there had been trends in hair fashion since the beginning of time, there was bob or finger wave as some called it in the 20s, the pixie in the 50s popularized by none other than Audrey Hepburn! Hair styles were not only inspired by movie stars but there was a huge fad about musicians and bands. Beehive, the style of 50s and 60s were an influence of a band named Georgia, dreadlocks of the 70s was a sheer craze brought by Bob Marley. Then there was perm in the 80s, I can still recall aunties coming from beauty parlors with stiff volumes over their head with stinging smell of chemicals. All the 'Friends' lover can't ignore the immensely loved 'the Rachel' cut with a layered, bouncy ‘do with highlights and lowlights. "Rachel" cut became famous in the 90s. In 2010, reminiscence from the past seems to have a comeback. Bobs are back in road, stars like Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow are doing it and looking stunning. Long, wavy hairs are always accepted, wanted and adored! And most importantly, this year the waves should look as natural as possible! Either with......

Save choose for yourself should reflect a little something of your personality. Signature pieces have long defined the world's most stylish women from Elizabeth Taylor (the Taylor-Burton diamond) and Jackie O (Jean Schlumberger bracelets) to Coco Chanel[pic] (long, layered strands of pearls). The Traditional Woman The Contemporary Woman The Rock Star The Tomboy The Romantic The Traditional Woman Far from being stodgy or boring, the traditional woman in this sense points to a classic and classy point-of-view in looks and attitude. Clues that you may be a traditionalist in terms of your jewellery: are simple pearl or diamond studs still your standard accessory? Does your dream engagement ring come in Tiffany & Co's little blue box? Is Audrey Hepburn one of your style icons? Women in this category tend to dress on the conservative side in tailored clothing that stays in style from season to season. If this sounds familiar, there are a few tips you can follow for finding a piece of diamond jewellery to fit your style. Traditional women often opt for the classic round, brilliant cut for its universally appealing shape and maximum brilliance or the princess cut for its simple and understated modernity. The Tiffany setting - in its classic four-prong - will probably be the most appealing option for a solitaire. If you have a two-toned wristwatch, white metal, for its simplicity and beauty, will invariably be your best choice for setting your colourless diamond. The......
