Audrey’s In The House

I’m not much into decorating as a rule, but suddenly I’m rivaling Martha Stewart.

I already have lots of artwork for my many walls.  Never being able to afford a masterpiece, I’d find a cheap, old magazine cover, poster or photograph then frame it lavishly.

It’s all about the packaging.

So…my bedroom is more or less at its fighting weight…done…a fait accompli, but needing a little salt and pepper, as my pal Camille would say.

I  already have two great pictures of Audrey Hepburn.  A Town and Country cover, getPart-1and one from Life Magazine getPartthat raise the bar, I so wish was open, considerably. 

But, can you really have too much Audrey?

It’s amazing what you find online when you do a search.  Funny Face, a musical, is one of my favorite Audrey films when she’s practically drugged to Paris to model for Fred Astaire whose character is loosely based on fashion icon Richard Avedon, who actually was a consultant on the film.  It’s kitschy and silly,  breathtakingly beautiful making you want to don a beret and hop the next plane to Paree.

I decided my Amish bedroom needed a sprinkle of our girl.

The 8 by 10 print, with tax, came to less than 5 bucks.  The framing?  Well, that’s another story even with my best Monty Hall, Let’s Make a Deal, persona I only haul out on special occasions.  Offering cash always helps.

So, once again packaging had the last say.

Say hello to Audrey.    getPart-2



About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

    I think she is probably the most photogenic person ever born. She could brighten the dreariest of places. Good choice!

    Looks great, Susannah! I haven’t seen Funny Face in ages, now I’ve got a hankering.


    • It’s so campy but utterly delightful. She’s so pretty. And it was the first film Fred Astaire did after his wife died coming out of a very deep depression. His character, Dick Avery, was a slam dunk 🙂

  6. I think it’s a great idea. You can never go wrong with Audrey. I love Funny Face. And the packaging? Well you know what they say, “If you package it right people will buy baloney.” 😀


  7. Love! You look so much like Audrey on the Life cover.


  8. You can never have too much Audrey. 🙂
