There's No Place Like Rome

"Roman Holiday"


On this cold, rainy Wednesday, I'm dreaming of a Roman Holiday. I know you might think I sound like a bored princess, having just returned from a trip to France, but that was not really a holiday, and a girl can always dream! 

The May issue of Vanity Fair features Audrey Hepburn in sidewalk cafés, Italian sports cars, and Givenchy couture, strolling through the Eternal City. Ms. Hepburn's son, Luca Dotti, author of Audrey in Rome, discusses his mother's twenty year dolce vita a Roma and her iconic style. It might be the next best thing to a real Roman Holiday.
