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.

Press Release
Fan Phenomena: Audrey Hepburn

The satirical American newspaper the Onion recently ran a story with the headline &#8220;College-Aged Female Finds Unlikely Kindred Spirit In Audrey Hepburn,&#8221; lampooning modern American girls&#8217; continued fascination with the star (along with their habits of hanging posters of Breakfast At Tiffany&#8217;s in their dorm rooms).
What gives this slight starlet such staying power? A talented actress, an icon of fashion, a loving mother, and an active humanitarian, Hepburn remains one of the world&#8217;s most beloved women even two decades after her death. Ranked as the third greatest screen star of all time by the American Film Institute, she possessed grace and beauty that still enchant us today. The winner of the 1953 Academy Award for her role as Princess Ann in Roman Holiday, she received further Academy Award nominations for Sabrina, Breakfast at Tiffany&#8217;s, and Wait Until Dark. Her timeless, iconic style, both on and off screen, has long been admired, and she is seen by many as the epitome of grace, class, and elegance.

 Fan Phenomena: Audrey Hepburn focuses on the transformative nature of Hepburn&#8217;s star persona, exploring her journey from ingénue to UNICEF ambassador. The book looks at her iconographic relationship with female culture and fashion and situates Breakfast at Tiffany&#8217;s alongside the works of Edith Wharton and Sex and the City.

highheel63 asked: Do you know where Audrey gets her clothes? Such as day clothes? I know she was big on Givenchy,but those seem like awards and film clothes. Thank you. :-)

Audrey wore Givenchy on set and in her daily life. (Lucky girl!) The Fashion of Audrey is a wonderful blog completely devoted to Audrey’s wardrobe. There you can find out which designers Audrey wore and the year and seasons the items were made/presented.  TFoA is very detailed and showcases her everyday apparel, her red carpet ensembles, and even her wedding dresses (from both occasions!).  I’d definitely recommend this blog. Thank you for the message, I hope I was able to help. xoxo
