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.

tonyarawr asked: Have you seen the Audrey Hepburn CGI ad for galaxy chocolate? What did you think of it?

I have and I must admit I’m not wild about it. It was beautifully done and every time the song Moon River begins to play in the commercial my heart melts and my eyes begin to water, yet, I’m not terribly keen on a CGI Audrey Hepburn. I guess I’m just fond of the original Audrey.

veloursbleuu asked: Okay so I watched the Audrey Hepburn story I put off watching it because of the shitty reviews and I had nothing to do today but seriously Jennifer love Hewitt did a poor job!!!! In terms of Audrey's story and life in you opinion is it accurately portrayed ??

The Audrey Hepburn Story was a poorly executed TV movie.  However, I cannot fault Jennifer Love Hewitt for making the film; I imagine it’s every Audrey fan’s dream to star in a movie about the enchanting actress.  My main complaint about the film was that the entire plot seemed to focus on the fact that Audrey was beautiful (no doubt) and that everyone loved Audrey mainly because she was pretty.  They missed out on an opportunity to explore the real Audrey Hepburn and the hardships she endured during her short lifetime.  If someone was to ever make another film on Audrey (although I rather they didn’t) they should model it after the film My Week with Marilyn.  Center it around one time in Audrey’s life as oppose to trying to cram her entire life into an hour and 30 minutes.  To be honest, I wouldn’t be opposed to a film about the production of Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  There was a lot of drama during the filming of BAT that would make for a great movie. If you want to know more about the filming of Breakfast at Tiffany’s this is a great book to read: Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman. I also wrote a review of the book HERE.

ihideinmymusic asked: Do you know of ANY photographs with Jackie Bouvier/Kennedy/Onassis and Audrey? I heard Audrey was her style icon.

I can’t say that I do but I will definitely look for some.  I’ve also heard that. I’ve read/been told that she cut her hair short after seeing Audrey’s short haircut but that could all be conjecture. (Here’s a picture of Jackie in 1954. Looks cute!)image

xhollygolightly asked: What's your favourite Audrey film??

Sabrina. The movie may be about Sabrina falling for the cold and emotionally unavailable Linus Larrabee but to me it will always be about a young woman venturing to Paris to “let in la vie en rose”.

Thomas Fairchild: He’s still David Larrabee, and you’re still the chauffeur’s daughter. And you’re still reaching for the moon. 
Sabrina Fairchild: No, father. The moon is reaching for me.

Happy New Year Audrey Fans!

I hope everyone had a ‘s wonderful and celebratory New Year’s Day.  I apologize for the lack of updates but tomorrow I will post pictures and answer messages.  In the meantime, and without sounding like an unwanted salesman, until January 10 (technically it began on Dec 26th) if you sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime through my site I can make a small but very appreciated amount of $$ which will go towards gift cards for the gift giveaway and paying for RAH’s new (well month old) tumblr theme.  Every bits help and I’m very grateful to those who have already purchased something through my site. Thank you, sincerely, thank you.  Beware though, Amazon will automatically charge you for a full year’s subscription on the 30th day of your trail so if you don’t want to pay for the year’s subscription cancel your account the day before or two days before for safe measure.  Happy 2014 my Audrey friends.  I hope you have a very (in the voice of Holly Golightly) “jazzy” New Year.
