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”.

From one of my past posts: ”I eat everything. I eat a great many vegetables, fruit…”

adannasmiles asked: I'd like to ask about Audrey's affair with William Holden. Who was she married to at the time of the affair and how long did it last? Thank you so much! I adore Audrey and your blog very much! ♡

Audrey was not married at the time of the affair (which occurred during the filming of Sabrina).  However, William was, to Brenda Marshall.  Bill and Brenda had a very contemptuous relationship. Yet, the two remained married for 30 years, despite being separated for most of that time.  Audrey would later marry actor Mel Ferrer on September 25, 1954. 

ourmarilynmonroe asked: Your page is amazing! May I ask where you find all of your beautiful pictures?! xxx

All over the place!  Google, other Audrey sites, online auctions, ebay, amazon, scans from books and magazines, other Audrey blogs (thank you you lovely, generous friends).  Google image search is your friend!  I spend a tremendous amount of time searching for these pictures but I feel it is time well spent. :)  Thank you! I receive so much positivity having this blog and it truly means the world to me! Xo

vloneslim asked: Hey there love the blog:)!!! I was wondering if you by any chance know who made the white oval sunglasses audrey wore.

 

The sunglasses Audrey wore in How to Steal a Million were by Oliver Goldsmith, the same designer responsible for her oversized sunglasses in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

bubbles-and-champagne asked: Hi ! I wanted to know where did the Moon River scene from Breakfast at Tiffany's was shot? Was it in NYC or in studios ? Thank you :) I hope you'll know ;)

The shot of Audrey singing “Moon River” on the fire escape was filmed on the Paramount Studios lot in Hollywood. Most of the exterior shots were filmed in New York City.  On the Set of New York has pictures of the real NYC locations used in the film.

Hey! I love Audrey Hepburn too, so I created this makeup look based off the movie ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. If you like my video, feel free to share it with your followers. Much love,xx

EMMA FERRER OPENS UP
Hepburn’s granddaughter, Emma Ferrer, steps into the spotlight and opens up to BAZAAR. Plus, see her fashion shoot shot by Richard Avedon’s grandson, Michael Avedon, here.
The first images I have of her are, interestingly enough, when she was quite young,” Emma Ferrer says of her paternal grandmother, Audrey Hepburn. “I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline—I believe this was before I understood that she was famous. But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had.”
Of course, Audrey Hepburn—or simply Audrey, as she will forever be known—has always been a luminous presence: She was a brilliant actress, a timeless style icon, and a tireless crusader for the world’s underprivileged children as an International Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. She was also a devoted mother who put aside her career at its peak to raise her two sons, Sean Ferrer, whose father was Audrey’s first husband, the actor Mel Ferrer, and Luca Dotti, from her second marriage (to the Italian psychiatrist Andrea Dotti).
One thing that Audrey never had the chance to do, though, was enjoy the experience of being a grandmother. In late 1992, she fell ill during a UNICEF trip to Somalia and died a few months later, in January 1993, of a rare form of abdominal cancer.
Emma Kathleen Hepburn Ferrer, Audrey’s first grandchild, was born in Switzerland in May of the following year to Sean and his then wife, Leila. Now 20, Emma is the eldest of Sean’s three children and spent most of her adolescence in and around Florence, Italy, where Sean, who runs an agency that deals with intellectual property and is also a filmmaker and keeper of the Audrey flame, lives outside the city. (Luca, his wife, and their daughters occupy his mother’s former apartment in Rome.)
"Muse" is an overused word these days, but that’s exactly what Audrey was for the legendary photographer Richard Avedon. She was, in a word, his inspiration, and their interaction played out over a number of years in the 1950s in the pages of Harper’s Bazaar. Avedon photographed Audrey on the streets of Paris, in fashion stories, and several times as a cover subject for the magazine. Even though he worked with some of the biggest models of all time—Suzy Parker, Dorian Leigh, Carmen Dell’Orefice—he was completely enamored with Audrey as a subject, and she loved sitting for him.

Audrey Hepburn during the production of The Unforgiven, Durango, Mexico, 1960.

Audrey Hepburn on My Fair Lady

The actress describes how she developed a Cockney accent for her 1964 movie musical. A day before the film opens in Toronto, CBC Radio’s Elwood Glover talks with its star, actress Audrey Hepburn, about how she prepared for the role of the working-class flower girl Eliza Doolittle. In this clip, Hepburn says she developed the Cockney accent - which was too strong at first - all on her own.

Another great, rare interview with Audrey!  She talks about conquering the cockney accent, the challenges of singing, whether she’ll do another broadway show again, and life at home in Switzerland.
