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.

I’ve created an Instragram for Rare Audrey Hepburn. Follow me at rareaudrey I would love to connect with you all there! Two days on instagram and I’m already addicted!
Also, if you aren’t already, follow me on twitter @rareaudrey! If you want to tweet about Audrey, I’m your girl!
Lastly, I change my header again. I know, I know, but this time it was a small adjustment. It was my mother who gave me the inspired idea.  She suggested that I change the book that Audrey was holding in my banner to a laptop instead, considering this is for a blog.  I thought it was a clever and cute idea. Audrey Hepburn in the 21st Century!  I may at times change the picture back to a book, or a magazine, or something else fun.  Those will be little easter eggs to look forward to in the future.
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Did any of you watch the VMAs? It was…eventful… :)
A reminder to you all that the 60th anniversary of Roman Holiday is just around the corner.  It was originally released on August 27, 1953.  Time to get out your DVDs and popcorn, or in the spirit of RH a gelato. 
xoxo Rare Audrey Hepburn

Rare Audrey Hepburn Pictures

I was recently inspired by a friend to try my hand at digitally colorizing black and white photographs of Audrey Hepburn.  I’ve been able to to do two alterations so far.  It would be my honor to share them with all of you!  I’ve tagged each picture “rareaudreyhepburn.tumblr.com”.  I’ve never tagged my photographs or creations in the past but I decided to do so this time. I hope you all enjoy them!
