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.

elspethrose asked: So sorry if this has been asked before, but if I'm reading that ask correctly, you are the one who emailed Luca Dotti? How did you come to be in communications with him, is it through your blog? Also, thank you so much for having this space on the internet! Lovely finding new pictures xx

Yes, I contacted him via email and asked if he would help me answer questions about his mother and he was kind enough to oblige.  He was aware of me through my blog.  He and (his team) have a tumblr, too! It was created to promote his book Audrey A Roma.  A very beautiful book filled with rare photographs of Audrey during her time in Rome.  I recommend it, if you don’t already own it. :)

misselizabethtaylor asked: On which occasion did Audrey meet Lauren Bacall?

They met in 1955 at a party for Guys an Dolls in New York. Yet, I don’t think it would be impractical to assume they met prior to that, while Audrey and Bogie were filming Sabrina

everyonesastar13 asked: Wait you know Audrey Hepburn's son!!!!???????

Not personally.  I would never want to give the wrong impression.  Luca has been very kind by helping me answer questions about his mother that I am unable to answer on my own.  I’m incredibly grateful to him for his generosity. 

braydenrules asked: I just wanted to say thank you for all the time you put into finding all these great images and answers about Audrey! I love being an Audrey fan and I love following your blog!

Thank you so very, very much.  It is a true joy having this blog and being able to share my adoration for Audrey with other fans.  I receive so much positivity and I try to share it in bundles with others through posts and messages.  Thank you for being a fan of Audrey.  It makes my job all the more easier and enjoyable

j-shortt asked: I have a fun, possibly quite challenging question for you. I wouldn't be surprised if you have never had this asked before. My two favourite things in the world are Audrey Hepburn and Star Wars. Naturally, I have always wondered if Audrey ever took her two sons to see the first Star Wars film in 1977. The thought of her watching Star Wars is especially amusing considering the fact her birthday is May the 4th, which, if you do not know, is an Unofficial Star Wars Holiday celebrated by the fans.

You’re right! I’ve never been asked this before, thankfully for us, I knew someone who would know the exact answer to this very unique question. 

I emailed Luca (Dotti) and I think you’ll enjoy his response:

"Lovely question too as I’m mad with Star Wars. We all went to the Italian premiere which I believe was early 1978 in Rome. Han Solo was clearly the one for us boys who got all the right credits (still too young for Organa charms). 3 years after that my cousin and I stumbled on Harrison Ford (we were all in Hawaii and he was filming the first Raiders of the Lost Ark). After many shy aways, we decided to grab courage and ask Mr. Solo his autograph. He looked at me very seriously and replied "at one condition, that you’ll get me one from that lovely lady over there, your mother".

What better way to wake up every morning than to a room filled with Audrey! Xo

lorelieswan asked: What's audrey diet???

Audrey loved pasta! She would even carry dried pasta with her in her suitcase when she travelled abroad.  Here is the recipe for “Audrey Hepburn’s Spaghetti Al Pomodoro”.
