The Cookie Mold

A thin beauty in a very small kitchen, and hanging on the wall behind her to her right is a carved wooden gingerbread cookie mold, a tribute to her Dutch heritage.

Miss Hepburn

Miss Hepburn suffered starvation and malnutrition as a child during WWII in the Netherlands. See this article.

And a half-dozen cigarettes.

Great face, but I'll pass on the waif figure. And the missile bra...well, some things were best left in the 1950's.

None for me, thanks

Audrey may have been "serving" cake, but if you look at that body, you know she was not eating cake, most likely just black coffee and a toothpick.
