How did they do that?

0 Comments

web7_1Since the chocolate advert that brought Audrey back to life aired last weekend, people have been abuzz over the commercial. Some think it’s classic and timeless, while others cringe and simply ask why. Most of all, people ask, how? How on earth did the creators make a new Audrey Hepburn that seemed so lifelike and interacted with real actors, yet wasn’t real?

I’ve watched the ad quite a few times and still couldn’t figure it out – until I found this article on The Verge.

The exhibit is called She Wore Givenchy…An Hour at the Ritz, Paris, 1964, and was photographed by Angela Williams.

vlcsnap-2013-02-27-22h22m46s208If you haven’t heard by now, Audrey Hepburn has returned. With the permission of her estate – her sons Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti – Galaxy Chocolate, a UK branch of Mars candy, is using a digitized Audrey to sell their chocolate bars. The new commercial aired Sunday evening, and features a mid-50s era Audrey stuck on a bus on the streets of Rome, looking for some peace and quiet so she can enjoy her chocolate bar. I won’t spoil anymore, you can watch here:

Happy Birthday!

3 Comments

Audrey inspired Sweet Sixteen Birthday Cake It’s Audrey Day again! Yes, it’s Audrey Hepburn’s 83rd birthday today, and while she is not with us physically, her spirit is as strong as ever. She still influences millions of people with her grace, style, class, and humanitarian works, and it’s still as heartwarming to hear about her influences now as it was when I first started this old thing 9 years ago.

I thought it would be a nice celebration to share what others are saying and doing in honor of Audrey.

Audrey A Roma in book form

The last big news item on Audrey Hepburn was an exhibit in Italy showcasing Audrey’s life in Rome. The exhibit was sadly short-lived, yet still managed to raise nearly $100,000 for UNICEF! If you couldn’t make it out to Rome to visit the exhibit, but desperately wanted to see the displays of Audrey’s clothes, personal belongings, and candid photographs, never fear: a special book curated by her son Luca Dotti has been released with 192 pages of text and pictures for your enjoyment.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s screening in Hollywood Forever Cemetery

It sounds macabre, I know, but for those of you not from L.A., watching films in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery is a great pastime of ours. Every weekend during the summer, we confab with picnic blankets, lawn chairs and even air mattresses to eat, drink, and watch a classic film under the stars. (Yes, even we have a few stars in the sky.)

Audrey Hepburn’s My Fair Lady Ascot dress sold – again

0 Comments

It was nearly 10 years ago that I went to a nondescript building in Beverly Hills and got to see Audrey Hepburn’s iconic black and white Ascot races dress from My Fair Lady before it was sold at auction for $100,000. (The hat was included as well.) I even got to take a picture with it! Back then, it was sold to a man who had grand ideas to open up his own memorabilia museum.
