I’ve added quite a few books to my Golden Age of Hollywood collection already this year (I’d have ever so much more money in my purse if I’d stay off Amazon and out of bookstores!) and you’re looking at one of my favorites. Audrey Hepburn in Words and Pictures is the sort of visually beautiful book she deserves.
Through discussions of her films, charity work, reminiscences from friends, and photographs of her looks over the years Audrey Hepburn reveals the woman and the icon.
Nearly two decades after her final film appearance, film star, style icon, and humanitarian, Audrey Hepburn continues to captivate the world with her beauty, grace, image, and activism. One of the most successful and popular actress in the world, some of the greatest leading men in Hollywood shared the screen with Audrey. She was also one of the first activist stars as the public face of UNICEF for over twenty years.
Yet her life was not a complete fairy tale. She endured early life in Nazi-occupied Netherlands, and saw many children her own age shipped off to concentration camps. She suffered miscarriages and failed marriages, yet throughout maintained her grace and dignity as a public figure.
Audrey Hepburn explores her amazing life, with a special focus on her iconic films and fashion styles.
While the beautiful pictures are extraordinary, I also love all of the information about Audrey Hepburn, her movies, her wonderful charity work, and (of course) the always inspiring Audrey Hepburn quotes.
Speaking of the gorgeous photographs, there are many candids and behind the scenes photos I have, personally, never seen before… and this from someone who has been obsessed with Audrey Hepburn since the crib!
Audrey Hepburn in Words and Pictures is a stunning celebration of an incredible woman and activist – someone who left the world a better place. I found my copy at my local Books a Million, but you can also click the links within this post for more information AND buying information.
