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.

Today Audrey Kathleen Hepburn-Ruston would have turned 85. She passed away 21 years ago, on January 20, 1993 at 8pm, at the young age of 63 from a rare type of cancer. Soon after losing her we felt that, would she have had more time on this earth, she would have spent it continuing to speak on…

Audrey Hepburn May 4, 1929 - Jan 20, 1993

"I came out of the war thankful to be alive, aware that human relationships are the most important thing of all—far more than wealth, food, luxury, careers, or anything you can mention." - Audrey Hepburn

"She had her own personal style.  She was not created by a studio.  She didn’t need to be created.  She simply was." -Linda McEwen

She had a quality no other actress had: a curious combination of lady and pixie.  She was a joy to work with—enormous talent and no ego." - Sidney Sheldon

What is needed in order to really become a star is an extra element which God gives you or doesn’t give you.  You’re born with it.  You cannot learn it.  God kissed Audrey Hepburn on the cheek and there she was." - Billy Wilder

Audrey Hepburn May 4, 1929 - January 20, 1993.

“She was always a little bit surprised by the efforts women made to look young. She was actually very happy about growing older because it meant more time for herself, more time for her family, and separation from the frenzy of youth and beauty that is Hollywood. She was very strict about everybody’s time in life.” -Luca Dotti remembers his mother Audrey Hepburn.
