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 and Sandra Deevoted.

intensity-of-scorpio asked: Do you like Elizabeth Taylor too?

I do!  I post pictures of her on my main tumblr myhumblefash, although, not as often as I should. Xo 

deannnajackson asked: btw I think if audrey looked at your blog today she would love it :) xx

Aww, that is incredibly sweet of you to say. Thank you so very much. :)

deannnajackson asked: when did audrey cut her hair really short in the late 60s? It had to be right after breakfast at tiffany's right? x

Audrey had very short hair for most of the 50s and began growing her out around 1956/57.  She then had long hair until about 1965. Her “How to Steal a Million” hairdo was created by Alexandre de Paris  (who styled Audrey’s hair throughout the 60s.) 

b-ttrcp asked: Audrey hepburn inspired prom outfits?

Unfortunately, I’m not up to date on current prom fashions but I always felt that the evening gown Audrey wore in Love in the Afternoon would be the ideal prom dress.  Perhaps, this Givenchy creation will inspire you while shopping for a prom dress.
