‘Cause people seem to only post the 20-something Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey Hepburn was the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts.
…and history remembers her as pretty.
AND HISTORY REMEMBERS HER AS PRETTY
this is the first time I have ever seen a picture of her older than 20 and I think that’s scary
Audrey Hepburn was born in 1929 and did Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961. So most of the pictures you see of her were when she was around 32 years old. She did some movies before that, like Roman Holiday and Sabrina, but many popular movies of hers were after BaT, including Charade (1963), My Fair Lady (1964), and Wait Until Dark (1967). You don’t see many photos of her past the late 1960’s because she didn’t do many movies after that. She wanted to focus on being a mother, and then went on to focus on her charity work. So yeah, she wasn’t exactly doing photo shoots. She wasn’t interested in fame at that time.
The point of this post is great, but get your facts straight.
Jay Adams circa 1970 ~ Early 70s
“In contests, Jay was simply the most exciting skater to watch. He never skated the same run the same way twice. His routines were wickedly random yet exceedingly tight and beautiful to watch; he even invented tricks during his runs. I’ve never seen any skater destroy convention and expectation better. Watching him skate was something new every second - he was ‘skate and destroy’ personified.” - Stacy Peralta

Joost Vandebrug documents the lives of a gang of boys called “The Lost Boys” who live in the tunnels of post-communism Bucharest. The group make up just four of an estimated thousand homeless children who end up forming tunnel communities together.

Trans Model Carmen Carrera Is Transforming Fashion
Like most women, Carmen Carrera finds it a little rude when strangers ask questions about her genitals. But Carrera, a reality TV star, model, and, potentially, one of next year’s Victoria’s Secret’s “angels,” is trans, which means people ask her about them anyway.
I got the chance to talk gender—and fashion—with Carrera a few days ago during a Skype date. The call connected and I asked her to go on video. “I look like shit,” she whined, and then went on. Needless to say, she does not look like shit. She’s already got the mermaid-like Victoria’s Secret waves going on, and she has on minimal makeup, with the exception of black eyeliner and mascara. It’s a Saturday evening, and she wears a bare-bones, gray spaghetti strap top—the uniform of an off-duty Cindy Crawford in the 90s. Carrera seems to be getting more famous by the week, thanks to some of the amazing work she’s done lately. Plus, her fans made a petition calling for her to become the first trans Victoria’s Secret model.
Although she’s obviously been quite successful at this point in her career, Carrera still struggles with intense insecurity issues, and is constantly fighting the labels people try to stick to her. I ask her if there’s one thing she can’t stand being asked in the flurry of media attention.
“Yeah, when they ask me if I got the sex change surgery. It’s kind of weird. At the beginning of my transition when people would ask me, I would answer. But now, it’s kind of getting to the point where I don’t think that that’s relevant. Like, I wouldn’t sit here and ask you about your genitals.”
