Internet search giant Google honored on Sunday legendary British actress Audrey Hepburn with a pink doodle on her 85th birth anniversary.

Hepburn spent her childhood between Belgium, England and the Netherlands, including German-occupied Arnhem during the Second World War.

The 1960s Breakfast at Tiffany's star studied ballet in Amsterdam with Sonia Gaskell before moving to London in 1948 to continue her ballet training with Marie Rambert and perform as a chorus girl in West End musical theater productions.

In 1953, she won the Best Actress trophy of the 1953 Academy Awards for the movie "Roman Holiday."

Hepburn died in 1993 of appendiceal cancer. Posthumously she received, among other awards, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her work with UNICEF.
