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.

ihideinmymusic asked: Not to seem picky or sound weird, but I was checking out some of the older photographs, and that picture cited as "Audrey Hepburn pictured at her home, Villa Bethiana. Bürgenstock, Switzerland, 1957" seems to be from 1954 or around then based on Audrey's haircut. She had a certain look around the Funny Face and Love in the Afternoon eras, and I think I've seen earlier photographs of her with a very sharp elfish haircut from around 1954 that matches that picture. Is that citation from a book?

It’s interesting you bring this up because I originally had that picture tagged “circa 1955” (because I too thought it was from that era) however I saw in a book of mine that it was dated 1957.  I thought it was an error so I googled the photograph and it seemed other sites had it dated 1957 as well so I decided to do the same.  I must admit I had my trepidations posting that picture just in case I credited it incorrectly.  If you have any proof accrediting that picture from a different year please let me know, I’ll change it immediately.

A couple of Audrey-less Audrey pics

Hello.

I have been following your tumblr for so long now and am so appreciative of the loving detail you put in. 

I saw this photo from Landahlauts’ Flickr.  It’s not of Audrey herself, but is very relevant to her nonetheless: http://www.flickr.com/photos/landahlauts/3216091183/

It reads:

"To Audrey and George [Cukor]

You two certainly hit the nail on the head and took such a chance.  You scared all your friends to death — a million congratulations.  It’s a real triumph.

- Kath[arine Hepburn] and Spence[r Tracy]”

Also, this one is very sweet in a way of Sean Hepburn-Ferrer a few years ago viewing a very familiar garment:

Hope you enjoy, and keep up the great work.

Best,

- John

alyannatalledo asked: Hi. I do really love your blog. I saw that you have lots of AH books. Can you please post some picture of "The Audrey Hepburn Treasure" book. I really want that book but can't find here in the Philippines. Thank you so much. :) xoxo

Thank you so much dear! I can absolutely do that for you! Your comment gave me the push I needed to add a new section to my RareAudreyHepburn Gallery, so now you can see photographs from books I’ve scanned in the past HERE.  Also, don’t forget to check out my flickr for Audrey Hepburn book scans as well - CLICK HERE.
