Though starring in only some 20 films and two engagements on Broadway, Audrey Hepburn earned her reputation through the quality of her performances rather than the quantity of her work. Unlike other legends of Hollywood, she was never driven by her career. Hepburn worked only when she wished, talked to the press only when convenient, and took years off between movies to spend time with her family. This book details all of her performances.

Now in paperback, an intimate look at the woman the world adored, by the son who adored her with unique photos, drawings, and other rare Audrey memorabilia. She dazzled millions as Gigi. Eliza Doolittle. Holly Golightly. But to her most adoring fan, Audrey Hepburn was best known for her role as “Mummy.” In this heartfelt tribute to his mother, Sean Hepburn Ferrer offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the life of one of Hollywood's brightest stars. Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit is a stunning compilation of nearly 300 photographs, many straight from the family album and never before published; archival documents, personal correspondence, and mementos; even paintings and illustrations from the actress herself. Sean tells Audrey Hepburn's remarkable story, from her childhood in war-torn Holland to the height of her fame to her autumn years far from the camera and the crush of the paparazzi. Sean introduces us to someone whose grace, charm, and beauty were matched only by her insecurity about her appearance and talent, and who used her hard-won recognition as a means to help children less fortunate than her own. With this unique biography, Sean celebrates his mother's history and humanity—and continues her charitable work by donating proceeds from this book to the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund.

In Being Audrey Hepburn, Clarissa Explains It All-creator, Mitchell Kriegman, tells the story of a 19-year-old girl from Jersey who finds herself thrust into the world of socialites after being seen in Audrey Hepburn's dress from the film Breakfast at Tiffany's. Lisbeth comes from a broken home in the land of tube tops, heavy eyeliner, frosted lip-gloss, juiceheads, hoop earrings and "the shore." She has a circle of friends who have dedicated their teenage lives to relieve the world of all its alcohol one drink at a time. Obsessed with everything Audrey Hepburn, Lisbeth is transformed when she secretly tries on Audrey's iconic Givenchy. She becomes who she wants to be by pretending to be somebody she's not and living among the young and privileged Manhattan elite. Soon she's faced with choices that she would never imagine making – between who she's become and who she once was. In the tradition of The Nanny Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada, this is a coming of age story that all begins with that little black dress...

“Eğer güzel gözlerin olmasını istiyorsan, insanlara iyilikle bak. Eğer saçların güzel olsun istiyorsan, bırak çocuklar ellerini geçirsin saçlarından. İnce bir bedense isteğin, ekmeğini açlarla bölüş. Ve güzel dudaklara sahip olmak için, sadece güzel sözler söyle.” Güzelliği ve zarafetiyle bir dönem Hollywood tarihine imzasını atan dünya sinemasının gelmiş geçmiş en güzel yüzlerinden biri kabul edilen Audrey Hepburn, Oscar ödüllü bir aktris değildi sadece. Abartıdan uzak şık giyimiyle, duruşuyla, bakışıyla, tavırlarıyla, kısa saçları, kalın kaşları ve ahu gözlü makyajıyla ama en önemlisi sıcacık gülümsemesi ve samimiyetiyle moda dünyasında da bir ikondu. Audrey Look imajının yaratıcısıydı... İnkâr edilemeyecek en değerli güzelliğin zarafet olduğunun farkındaydı. Yokluk içinde geçen çocukluğu sayesinde, yardımlaşmayı, mutlu olmayı ve ne olursa olsun mücadele etmeyi öğrenmişti. Uzun zaman UNICEF’in iyi niyet elçisi olarak çalışan Hepburn dünyanın her yerinde yardıma muhtaç insanlar için son nefesine kadar tutkuyla emek verdi. Hiçbir Şey İmkânsız Değildir, İmkânsızlığın İçinde Bile Bir İmkân Vardır adlı bu biyografik çalışma, bir dansçının oyunculuk kariyerinde yükselişinin hikâyesi değildir sadece. Zarif ama güçlü bir mücadelenin ve direnişin, ilham veren masalıdır.

At a time when Hollywood was devoted to its screen sirens with their luscious curves and pouting lips, Audrey Hepburn was just that little bit different. Her contemporaries such as Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor were much more robust in their appearance and oozed sex appeal both on set and off. Hepburn, by 1950s’ standards, was far too lanky and skinny and perhaps appeared a bit too fragile. However, she brought a sophistication that was quite unlike anything that had gone before. Tall and slim with large feet, Hepburn brought a refreshing beauty to the world of stardom and glamour. Her style was simple yet elegant and is still as much revered in the fashion of the 21st Century as it was in her heyday. This book celebrates the story of a young girl who quickly rose to fame with her impressive film career and beautiful grace. Her personal life, humanitarian work and her impact on fashion today as a true style icon is also explored for this revered Hollywood legend.

Just a few short years after WWII ended, Audrey Hepburn was discovered in a Monte Carlo hotel lobby by the French novelist Colette to assume the title role in the Broadway production of Gigi. Having barely survived the war in her home in Arnhem, Netherlands, Audrey was forced to give up her dream of being a prima ballerina because she was both too tall and too malnourished from the starvation and deprivation she suffered during the war years. An immediate success as Gigi, Audrey was whisked away to Rome to film Roman Holiday with Gregory Peck. The role of Princess Anne would win her an Oscar for Best Actress, the first of five nominations throughout her career. This book tells the story of Audrey Hepburn, one of only ten actors to win a competitive Oscar, Tony, Emmy, and Grammy. But, in her eyes, possibly the best role of her career was that of Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. Her firsthand experiences in the Netherlands during WWII uniquely qualified her to relate to children devastated by war and famine and to convincingly advocate on their behalf to the most powerful men and women of the 1980s and 1990s.

She was living evidence that fairy tales are real and that angels can come down to earth. It was Colette who discovered the too tall and too thin girl with expressive eyes, then a complete unknown, and made her the lead in the 1951 Broadway production of Gigi. Her film triumphs were all the more astonishing since she didn't match the usual Hollywood clichés. Petite, almost androgynous, and with a disarming naturalness, she had a worldwide impact on fashion and beauty trends and was enthusiastically welcomed as an alternative to the sex bombs and pin-up girls of the 50s. This book, with an essay by Klaus-Jürgen Sembach, is dedicated to Audrey Hepburn who died in 1993. It includes the best film stills, portraits, and private photographs by well-known and by unknown photographers from all over the world who have provided us with an immortal image of Hollywood's most endearing star.
