Life Photographers Series: Remembering Audrey 15 Years Later

No Comments 26 January 2008

Thank you for your ongoing patience! I’m slowly but surely reinstalling all my programs to start working on the website again. I didn’t realize how much junk it took to keep the site going until I lost it all. Anyway, I’ve been hearing a lot about this special edition Life Magazine called “Life Photographers Series: Remembering Audrey 15 Years Later.” Apparently it’s an entire issue of the magazine dedicated to the fabulous Audrey, and all of the pictures of her that have appeared in the magazine throughout the years.

Ralph Lauren and Audrey Hepburn

No Comments 20 October 2007

During her later years in life, Audrey Hepburn gave Givenchy a break and started to dress more casually. For her Gardens of the World series, and for her numerous UNICEF trips, she favoured Ralph Lauren’s stylish yet casual Polo shirts and khaki pants with Keds flats to get her through the day. She became quite chummy with Ralph as well, and even presented him with a Lifetime Achievement Award (through the Council for American Fashion Designers, left) in 1992.

Audrey Hepburn makeup tips

No Comments 09 October 2007

I’ve been throwing out tons of tips lately on how to look like Audrey Hepburn or Holly Golightly for Halloween lately, but what about in everyday life? That’s where the book Audrey Style comes in. The first Audrey Hepburn book I ever bought, this book is in equal parts a tribute to her enduring sense of style, impact on the world of fashion, and tips on how to get your own Audrey style. There’s a section in the middle that gives simple, step-by-step instructions on how to do your everyday makeup to look like Audrey, and you even get a variety of styles to choose from (click for full-sized version):

As with any Audrey product that’s listed on the site, if you own it or have seen it/read it and would like to leave your own review, please do so! Fellow fans would love to hear your point of view.

New Audrey Hepburn goodies coming soon!

No Comments 12 September 2007

You can tell that the holiday season is coming ’round again, because new Audrey products are coming out all at once now. We’ve already discussed the new, 50th anniversary DVD of Funny Face coming October 2nd, but also to be released that day is a new Audrey Hepburn boxed set (left). This new set features five great films: Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Roman Holiday, Sabrina, and Paris When it Sizzles. Wow!

This is in addition to the already much hyped Audrey Hepburn: A Life in Pictures book that I reviewed earlier, and a re-release of the wonderful Audrey Hepburn’s Enchanted Tales, an audio CD where Audrey reads classic fairy tales. The book and CD both come out November 1st in the US. You can either start saving your pennies now, or start putting together that wishlist and conveniently leaving it out in front of all your friends and family. 😉

Audrey in Love

No Comments 11 September 2007

There’s a Spanish artist named Paco Chica who specializes in pop art. I received an email from him recently, and he’s done an installment featuring Audrey Hepburn called “Audrey in Love”. I’ve posted all of them here (my favourite to the left), but please feel free to visit his website to learn more about him, see other pieces he’s done, and contact him if you like what you see.

Audrey Hepburn: A Life In Pictures review

No Comments 16 August 2007

Anova Books, the publishing house that is releasing the new picture book Audrey Hepburn: A Life In Pictures this November, was kind enough to send me an advance copy of the book to review for this site. I found it waiting on my doorstep for me after a hard day at work, so I took the cat (and the book) outside and gave it a good going-over. It’s a beautifully bound hardcover book, and after a short and very sweet introduction by Hubert de Givenchy and a biography on Audrey, the rest is beautiful pictures! Most are full-page photos, and lots of the photos featured in the book are either completely new or else larger reproductions of great pictures I’ve only been able to find as a tiny, pixelated thumbnail somewhere online. It was so great to sit out in the sun and relax with some quality Audrey eye candy after a draining day, and this book will make a perfect coffee table book for anyone, new or old fan.

new Hepburn book delayed?

No Comments 30 May 2007

The last time I mentioned Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, it was to note that the release date for the book was May 28th. That apparently hasn’t happened, though Amazon and Barnes and Noble still list the release date as May 2007. Well, they’ve only got two days left! Hopefully this book won’t be as delayed as late as the (lovely and cute) Taschen Icons book was last year.

Also, I apologize for the lack of regular updates recently. I’ve been overfull on work recently and just really needed some time to rest and catch up with myself. Hopefully, I’m all caught up now and can get back to some exciting Audrey news. Remember that her pink Breakfast at Tiffany’s cocktail dress goes up for auction on Wednesday! It’s bound to exceed the estimated sale price.

Audrey Hepburn: A Life In Pictures

No Comments 15 May 2007

There seems to be yet another new Audrey Hepburn picture book coming out! This one is published by Anova Books, and is called Audrey Hepburn: A Life in Pictures. This is not to be confused with an earlier picture book called Audrey: A Life in Pictures by Carol Krenz — at least I’m pretty sure it’s not a reprint. There’s a different cover and publishing company involved, though judging by the Amazon preview available to us, there are a lot of more well-known pictures of Audrey featured in this new book. Well, perhaps more information will come out about this book between now and its release date of November first and we’ll know for sure if it’s a reprint or not.

And just a reminder: Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the new picture book by photographer Howell Conant, will be released on May 28! This book is supposed to be chock-full of all sorts of Breakfast at Tiffany’s goodies, including many never before seen or very rare photos taken from production and publicity shoots for the film.

No Comments 04 May 2007

Tony Nourmand is not just an author; he’s also an avid cinephile and co-owns The Reel Poster Gallery, which has a fantastic collection of vintage Audrey Hepburn cinema posters. There’s an interview with him today at Payvand.com in which he talks about his previous books and how Audrey is very different from other cinema stars and his previous book subjects. You can read the whole interview here, and look through Audrey Hepburn: The Paramount Years here.
