envy of sophistication

Classy and put-together, Audrey Hepburn’s influential style and elegance is famed though the decades. Plaster-smooth, freckle-less, pearl-white—her complexion was the envy of females everywhere. In bouffant fashion, her hair is twisted to the top of her head; loose tendrils curl at the temples. Colored as if with nutmeg, her hair shone with streaks of amber and bittersweet chocolate: cafĂ© au lait. Her maroreal eyes opened wide and ebony-coated lashes and acutely defined brows were her trademark. Full, rounded, and tinted lips and a softly rounded chin completed her sophisticated look.

what we need.

"We hear about every other kind of women--beautiful women, smart women, sophisticated women, career women, talented women, divorced women. But so seldom do we hear of a godly woman--or of a godly man either, for that matter...It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife than to be Miss America...It is a far, far better thing in the realms of morals to be old-fashioned than to be ultra-modern. The world has enough women who know how to hold their cocktails, who have lost all their illusions and their faith...The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs soe who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct." ~Peter Marshal
