LITTLE BOOK OF AUDREY HEPBURNCAROLINE JONES Book Number: 83771 Product format: Hardback
Audrey Hepburn's unique beauty was unparalleled. She was a woman who emanated gracefulness and poise, and her movies such as My Fair Lady, Funny Face and, of course, the iconic Breakfast at Tiffanys, ensured that she was adored by fans worldwide. Her effortless chic style and natural elegance inspired designers such as Givenchy to create exquisite garments to enhance her loveliness even more. Who can forget her as Holly Golightly in her Givenchy black dress, tiara, choker and overlarge sunglasses? Or as Eliza Doolittle in the Cecil Beaton designed long white ruffled dress ornamented with black and white striped details, and that huge black and white hat? Or stunning the crowds at the Embassy ball as she makes a demure entrance in a spectacular (Beaton again) long white gown? This little book is about her life and, especially, her fashions, and contains dozens of illustrations, both publicity shots and more casual photos. Demonstrating that her beauty was more than skin deep, Audrey was a humanitarian, working for UNICEF later in life, impetuously reaching out to starving, fly-covered children. A superb tribute to a beautiful, much-loved lady, who died aged just 63 from cancer. 160pp. Colour and b/w illus.
