I first fell in love with Julie Andrew when I saw her in the Princess Diaries at the ripe old age of ten and I watched the movie again yesterday on ABC Family, a perfect Sunday afternoon flick. It was not until the next time I watched her sing about a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down that I realized the breadth of her amazing acting career – she is the only actresses I have ever heard of who have won an Academy Award for her film debut – earning the Oscar for Best Actress in Walt Disney’s 1964 film, Mary Poppins. Then following yea she stared one of my favorite movies- the Sound of Music! I am glad this movie became the highest grossing film of the decade because it introduced the world to a truly phenomenal actress and style icon. These are my favorite Julie Andrew’s looks:
While Julie is definitely the oldest woman I have featured in my Style Icons series
and I am proud to be expanding this to include such an amazing woman,
who at 77 is still stunning!
