What makes women so exceptional? Style, poise and pizazz go without saying. We’ve has a difficult time capturing just a few accolades and accomplishments, as there are too many to mention.
The fact that we are able to birth, nurture and run households with the duality of being career driven with many of us heading up teams and running offices.

In 1993 she won a special Academy Award for her humanitarian efforts, but sadly succumbed to colon cancer in that same year. She will be fondly remembered for roles such as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, for her chic personal style, but undoubtedly her most important role was that of goodwill ambassador and her work done for vulnerable children. For some breakfast at Tiffany’s here’s how to get Holly Golightly’s look:
