Audrey Hepburn. Kate Bush. So different but are each woman is an icon.

When I think of Audrey Hepburn these words come to mind: Feminine Beautiful Elegant Charming Funny. I also know she was a true humanitarian late in life. She was born in 1929 and witnessed first hand the atrocities of the Nazis. She also experienced starvation while living in the Netherlands. She's the real deal and I like her positive quotes.

Today I watched Roman Holiday. How sweet are the simple things in life when you never get to experience them. A stroll, a gelato, a haircut of your choosing. An outdoor cafe, a ride on a scooter, and a dance party.

Kate Bush. I'd heard the name but was completely unfamiliar with her work. I read that her song Wuthering Heights, based on the novel, is her first song and the video has a cult following where people dress like her and dance like her in flash mobs. Pretty cool!

Kate Bush is a singer-songwriter, musician and record producer. Breaking all the (feminine) rules! Eclectic, Experimental. Wild Hair. New, strange lyrics. Expressive dance.

Bush first came to note in 1978 when, at the age of 19, she topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks with her debut single, "Wuthering Heights", becoming the first female artist to achieve a UK number-one with a self-written song.[3] She has since released twenty-five UK Top 40 singles. She is the first British solo female artist to top the UK album charts and the first female artist ever to enter the album chart at number-one,[4] as well as the first (and to date, only) female artist to have top five albums in the UK charts in five successive decades.
