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.

kingcessaly asked: How can I dress like audri but with a modern twist? Do I wear plaid? Leather?

Absolutely!  The thing about Audrey’s style is that it was all about the structure of the design: clean and simple lines.  She followed the “less is more” motto.  When you say leather are we talking about leather pants? I don’t ever recall Audrey ever wearing leather pants or jackets. I would consider those looks more recent fashion trends.  She did wear leather shoes, belts, and handbags. For an edgier look think Audrey in Two for the Road when she wore that black polyvinyl suit.  image

As for plaid, Audrey definitely wore plaid. She wore a plaid, button down shirt paired with white shorts and wedges in Sabrina.

Also, here is a picture of Audrey wearing a tartan jacket and bow tie, October 3, 1950.

adannasmilesblog asked: Do you know if Audrey ever met Marilyn or Jayne Mansfield? Audrey and Jayne are my two favorite stars, and I have a soft spot for MM, I just think it would be so cool if they had met ♡♡

Unfortunately, I don’t.  I don’t think I’ve ever read or heard mentioned that Audrey met either of those two women.  Marilyn lived primarily in Los Angeles and New York while Audrey lived and travelled mostly throughout Europe. I’m not so sure about Jayne, though.  Sorry, dear.  I wish I had a better answer.

diamours asked: Is it true that Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn did not get along for the filming of Sabrina?

It was more so that Humphrey Bogart didn’t get along with anyone (not including the crew) during the filming of Sabrina.  Apparently, he had his misgivings about playing the older love interest in Sabrina (originally written for Cary Grant) and took it out on director Billy Wilder. During filming, Audrey spent her off hours with Billy Wilder and William Holden (whom she was having an affair with at the time). The three of them would often hang out during and after filming.  Audrey was quoted saying “I was rather terrified of Humphrey Bogart - and he knew it.  [But] if he didn’t like me, he certainly never showed it.”
