Rare Audrey Hepburn is a tumblr blog featuring rare and popular photographs of the 'S wonderful Audrey Hepburn.

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.

Audrey Hepburn at the Golden Globes

In honor of The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards airing this evening, I will dedicate today to Audrey Hepburn at the Golden Globes.  I’ll post pictures and videos of Audrey receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 1990’s Golden Globes. If you have pictures of Audrey at any GG award ceremony you can submit them to Rare Audrey Hepburn and I’ll be more than happy to post them.  I happen to be under the weather today, so bear with me, as it make take me longer to post each picture.

"No one can doubt that Audrey Hepburn’s appearance succeeds because it embodies the spirit of today.  Audrey Hepburn has enormous heron’s eyes and dark eye-brows slanted towards the far east.  Her facial features show character rather than prettiness: the bridge of her nose seems almost too narrow to carry its length, which bares into a globular tip with nostrils startlingly like a duck’s bill.  Her mouth is wide, with a cleft under the lower lip too deep for classical beauty, and the delicate chin appears even smaller by contrast with exaggerated width of her jaw bones.  Seen at full, the outline of her face is perhaps too square; yet she intuitively tilts her head with a restless and perky asymmetry.  She is the portrait of Modigliani where the various distortions are not only interesting in themselves but make a completely satisfying composite." -Cecil Beaton.

thesecretsofcat asked: I LOVE your blog. May I ask what are the names of the books on Audrey Hepburn that you own? I like to purchase them from amazon. Thanks again for this AMAZING blog of yours.

Thank you so much! I’ve been meaning to make a list of my Audrey Hepburn library at some point.  It’s a large collection, embarrassingly, but I’ll make a post in the next few days with the titles of every Audrey book I own.  I’ll do both biographies and portrait books.  I’ll message you when I’ve made the post.

palebrunette-deactivated2013013 asked: What's your fave Audrey movie?

My favorite Audrey film is Sabrina.  The movie may be about Sabrina falling for the cold and emotionally unavailable Linus Larrabee, but to me it will always be about a young woman venturing to Paris to “let in la vie en rose”.

Thomas Fairchild: He’s still David Larrabee, and you’re still the chauffeur’s daughter. And you’re still reaching for the moon. 
Sabrina Fairchild: No, father. The moon is reaching for me.
