When she was a teenager, Audrey Hepburn's dream had been becoming a professional dancer, but she was told she was too tall to dance as a prima ballerina, her heart was broken, but her fans are blessed.
A pair of shorts is one of Audrey's wardrobe staples in the summer, sometimes solid, sometimes patterned, mostly high-waisted. She pairs them with wrapped shirts or jersey tops, keeping herself cool and stylish in the long hot days that linger on.
The sight of Audrey Hepburn in a pair of shorts, is the sight of innocence, youth, joy, and freedom, with a dose of melancholy when we look at her well-proportioned, well-trained dancer's legs: What if her ballet teacher in London did not give her that sentence? Would she be less known to us, but happier to herself?
