I don’t doubt it.  Her daughter would certainly be as graceful and kindhearted as Audrey. She was a wonderful  and nurturing mother and loved every minute of motherhood.

At the 26th Annual Academy Awards, Audrey Hepburn wore a white floral, belted dress created by couturier Hubert de Givenchy.  The dress was  an adapted version of the gown designed by Edith Head for Roman Holiday. It was then given to Givenchy for alteration as the actress wanted to convert it into an evening gown. This was the first time audiences saw Audrey wearing a Givenchy gown but definitely not the last.  The actress and fashion designer developed a friendship that lasted over 40 years.

"The Academy Awards were given out on March 25,1954, in both New York and Los Angeles.  Audrey literally dashed from her performance onstage in Ondine to the NBC Century Theatre.  She had just enough time to change backstage into her Givenchy dress, but not enough time to remove her Ondine theatrical makeup.” - From The Audrey Hepburn Treasures.
