Of all the actresses that have come, gone and lasted over the years, Audrey Hepburn is one that has always held her place whether it’s on the silver screen or on our bedroom walls. The iconic lady, who was the third actor to be given $1million for a film role (bet you didn’t know that, did ya?), spent her life in the spotlight with an ever-changing style and appearance as well as a varied movie career including Breakfast at Tiffany’s, My Fair Lady, Roman Holiday and A Nun’s Story. And now you can chart the evolving life, style and career of Miss Hepburn in this fabulous new book. Audrey Hepburn: International Cover Girl features magazine covers with Audrey on from the beginning of her rise to superstardom right until the year of her death in 1993.
There are classic shots such as those iconic ones of her clad in pearls and sunglasses for Breakfast, but also lesser know photos that have never been re-printed. If you thought you knew all the faces of Audrey, imagine covers from Europe, the US, South America and even a Japanese one with her sexily posing with only a black mesh throw covering her body. Imagine covers with her leading men like Cary Grant and her old friend Hubert de Givenchy, who created her personal and professional wardrobe for most of her life (lucky girl).
Alongside the pictures runs biographical information so you can swot up on all things Hepburn. All of the Grazia girls are coo-ing over this one and one has already shotgunned it for her sister’s Christmas pressie, so best get in there quick before they sell out. Love, love, love!
