enattendantmapleiade asked: What was Audrey's first language?

Dutch French.  According to this video, Audrey Hepburn’s first language was in fact, French!  Here is a little more info on Audrey Hepburn’s accent and native tongue.

According to Luca Dotti Audrey spoke 6 languages:

"Mum was fluent in English, Dutch and French. She expressed herself perfectly in Italian with some funny mistakes and was quite ok in Spanish. I understand she was fluent in German too but rarely used it." - Luca Dotti

gregtoolson asked: About Audrey Hepburn's eye color. I'm quite certain they were not brown. At first glance they do appear brown but look closely at any of her color photos and they are definitely an elusive shade of teal. Some of her early black and white 50s photos have been colored in and she is given brown, but in every proper color photo you can see the blueish greenish grey of her eyes though they may appear brown at first.

This is a much debated topic.  I asked Luca Dotti (her son) this same question back in June and this was his response:

"About her eyes we’re all right in a way. Passports would describe them as brown, my mother with a little ‘coquetterie’ would say "don’t they look green today?". In fact they had a hue difficult to describe. Ask me and they were grey." - Luca Dotti

emerald-wonderland asked: Which pictures do you think are the prettiest of Audrey? Love your blog btw!

Oh gosh, I feel like everyday I fall in love with a new photo of Audrey Hepburn!  I’ll try to put together a collection of some of my favorite Audrey pictures.  Thank you for the question. :)

mightysushi asked: Do you have any photos of Audrey as a child? If so could you post them? I love your blog by the way. Audrey is my idol and my whole house is covered in Audrey themed items and the walls are adorned with Audrey posters.

You must have a very happy house!  I do have some photographs of Audrey as a child:  1920s1930s, 1940s.  Admittedly, I haven’t posted many childhood photographs of Audrey Hepburn but I will make more of an effort in the future! Xo

merry-crisis asked: Is that Audrey Hepburn in the photo of 2 women dancing on pointe in long sleeve white button up shirts?

No, it is not.  Below is the original photo from a Russian stock site.  It baffles me how this photograph is one of the most popular photographs of Audrey Hepburn on the web.  That girl must feel very flattered. :)
