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.

uppereastsiderkay asked: Hello darling, I'm planning my sweet 16 & I am a huge fan of Audrey. I was hoping to incorporate Audrey and Breakfast At Tiffany's as the theme of my party. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thx ☺️

That sounds like a lot of fun! It reminds me of the bridal shower Serena threw Blair in Gossip Girl, yet, didn’t that party include a diamond ring as a party favor? A little too expensive for my taste.  I’m not sure how big your guest list will be or if it’s co-ed but I had have your friends dress up to the nines. Ask them to wear their favorite party dresses for an evening of fun and extravagance. You should certainly wear your favorite black, cocktail dress with strands of costume pearls and a tiara in your hair à la Holly Golightly. I’d begin your invites with “Won’t you join me?” just as Audrey did in the Breakfast at Tiffany’s trailer. I’d serve sparkling cider and if it isn’t taboo, chocolate cigarettes.  You can always try to recreate the party scene in the film with lots of friends, laughter, and dancing.  Playing the music from the BAT soundtrack would surely help.  Another idea, I’d buy little cardboard boxes and paint them Tiffany’s blue, add white ribbons, and include a little present in each one as a fun party favor. If you’re having a dinner, keep the color scheme: Tiffany’s blue, white, and touches of black. If you have a half a tub lying around and a cat with no name, they definitely couldn’t hurt. ;)

Here is the original invite to the premiere of Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961. Perhaps, you can use it for inspiration.

lovemsgolightly asked: Did you see the new Dove chocolate commercial with the song Audrey sings in Breakfast at Tiffany's? If so what do you think and do you know who the doppleganger they used is?

Hello! I did see it and although it was very well done I’m still a little weary about the idea of a CGI Audrey Hepburn.  I did, however, love how they included Audrey’s version of Moon River in the ad. When the song begins to play it immediately tugs at my heartstrings.  Here is a little more information on how Audrey Hepburn was recreated for the 21st Century:

Filmed over the course of a week on the Amalfi Coast (all of which Hopper documented in pictures), the cast originally included three women to play Hepburn - their mouth, eyes and body to be fused by the wonders of CGI to bring a 1953 version of her to life - but the final cut only includes two: Jenny Ishammar and Lou-Helene Barbry.

catherineelee asked: omg i love audrey and a huge fan and how would you do makeup like hers?

Audrey’s look focused on her big, doe-like eyes.  She favored the cat eye with thick lashes and exaggerated eyebrows. In the fifties she had overdrawn lips and wore red lipstick.  In the 60s she preferred coral and soft pink lips with a natural brow. In her later years she preferred a clean face and mascara to accentuate her famous eyes. For that iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s look here is a great makeup tutorial on youtube:
