Audrey Hepburn checking the oven and still manages to look stylish! 1954
Here’s Audrey Hepburn looking classy and charming as ever, even while over a hot oven. Hepburn quickly shot to stardom after playing the lead role in Roman Holiday back in 1953. A role for which she was the first actress to win an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA Award for a single performance. From there she continued to win hearts and awards. She remains one of the 12 people who has won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards.
Over the years, Hepburn began devoting more time to the United Nations Children's Fund. She became a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNICEF and worked in some of the poorest communities of Africa, South America, and Asia. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in recognition of her efforts.
