Rare Audrey Hepburn is a tumblr blog featuring rare and popular photographs of the 'S wonderful Audrey Hepburn. I do not own any of these pictures; I do my best to credit the photographers of each picture as well as providing the date the picture was taken. I encourage all to message me if you have additional information on the photographs posted. Every picture posted is a great find I've stumbled upon during my Audrey Hepburn pictorial hunt. Also, follow me at My Humble Fash.

phyllomorphosis asked: Do you know any of Audrey's favourite books?

Audrey had said that one of her favorite books was The Secret Garden.

In the book What Would Audrey Do? it says that her favorite authors were: Graham Greene, Tom Wolfe, Jeffrey Archer, Willa Cather, Lawrence Sanders and in her twenties she enjoyed Rudyard Kipling’s work. 

In the book Audrey Hepburn by Barry Paris the author mentions that Audrey was “the original bookworm” and as a child she read Kipling, Edgar Wallace and Edward Phillips.

Aww, that is incredibly touching, thank you! Yet, I would be doing you and other Audrey fans a disservice if I didn’t mention some other truly great Audrey blogs. Tumblr has a fantastic Audrey Hepburn community that I’m incredibly appreciative to be apart of.

Here are several Audrey blogs that I love.  I apologize if I exclude anyone, there are so many wonderful Audrey tumblrs if I decided to list them all I could be sitting here for days! I mean it! xo

routhgreene asked: Hello. :) I was wondering if Elvis Presley ever met Audrey Hepburn? And if they did, will you please post a picture? Thank you for your time!

I have not a clue! I can’t recall ever reading about the two meeting or ever seeing a picture of them together. Any Audrey or Elvis fans know for certain? Message me if you do. xo

lilmissqueenb asked: I just want to ask if Audrey cut her hair while filming Two for the Road. I've been wondering about it for along time and I don't know anyone who knows about it. Thanks! (love your Tumblr and Instagram accounts.I follow you on both :) ) ♥

Hi there (I recognize your name)! As far as I know Audrey’s hair had been short for awhile prior to filming Two for the Road and that her long hair in the film was a wig/hair piece. Her hairstyle was created and done by Alexandre de Paris. Thanks for the message. xo
