Rare Audrey Hepburn is a tumblr blog featuring rare and popular photographs of the 'S wonderful Audrey Hepburn.

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.

raybolger asked: what would you say is your favorite hairstyle of Audrey's?

Her hairstyle in Sabrina.  I love that haircut!  It wasn’t too short and had a bit of a wave.  It’s my all time favorite haircut of anyones. 

Some of my personal favorite Audrey Hepburn outfits as requested by wednesday-mornings

I may not have chosen the most extravagant outfits and, I’m sure, some could consider my choices boring but for me clothes are all about the structure of the piece.  Would I consider all of them my absolute favorites? No, but they are very reflective of my own personal style.  I tried to include a mixture of her casual, every day style and her film fashions. :)

aconitum-napellus asked: This isn't strictly Audrey but I thought you might know. I could have sworn that I heard somewhere that Stanley Holloway, playing Eliza's father in My Fair Lady, was deaf at the time of filming, but I cannot find anything to back this up anywhere, and I don't know where I heard it. Maybe I'm getting it completely mixed up with something else. Do you know anything about this?

Hmm…I have not heard this.  Perhaps, someone reading this may know the answer to your inquiry.  I’m sorry, I wish I could be of more help. :)

wednesday-mornings asked: Hi! What are your personal favorites when it comes to audrey's outfits? :)

I will put together a little collage of my favorite Audrey outfits.  This will be very difficult to narrow down, but I will do my best! Xo

berryboba asked: Audrey is famous for her gamine features & classic style. To me she was born fairly pretty but it feels like there was something "extra" that made her special considering the gorgeous actresses of her time (and after). She seems timeless and irreplaceable. Why do you think she is beautiful?

I worry that if I answer this question to the best of my ability I could end up writing a thesis on why I think Audrey Hepburn is beautiful. There is no doubt the woman had impeccable bone structure and a smile that took up nearly half her face but I agree there was much more to her beauty than her outward appearance.  It was her grace, the way she spoke, how she spoke, her confidence and self assurance.  The fact that she was vulnerable and modest; never giving her looks too much thought.  She was feminine and fragile but never breakable.  She was always kind, gracious and empathetic.  She was smart and eloquent as well as elegant.  There are so many pieces that made up Audrey’s beauty; it’s difficult to pinpoint one thing.  She is timeless and very much irreplaceable. 

chrisoula asked: Love..love..LOVE your blog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The cutest ever!!Thank you for sharing!!!!

Thank you! I LOVE your enthusiasm. :)

lainhidden asked: Do you know if Audrey's hair in Ondine was a wig or some sort of tint?

According to the book Audrey: Her Real Story By Alexander Walker, Audrey tried a blonde tint and instantly regretted the decision and dyed her hair back to it’s original color.  She then wore a champagne colored wig that director Alfred Lunt had prepared for her but Audrey found it hot and horrible so her solution was to sprinkle gold dust on her hair.
