Audrey Hepburn: The Paramount Years is released!

1 Comment 03 April 2007

For those of you who haven’t marked every Audrey release on your calendar, Audrey Hepburn: The Paramount Years is now out! If you remember, there was a video review posted at the beginning of the month which had a good preview of what was in the book. That, along with the Search Inside! feature from Amazon, makes me very excited for this book. And now it’s finally here! Click the link above to buy through Amazon.

MTV highly suggests a remake of Breakfast at Tiffany’s

1 Comment 23 March 2007

MTV.com has brought up some interesting articles on Audrey Hepburn lately, but this one irritates much more than it amuses. In “‘Deliverance’ To ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’: Movies We’d Like to See Remade,” the author suggests a few classic movies that, in his opinion, could actually benefit from a remake. Some would do well with the better quality special effects that we have available now, and others would be just plain fun to see with today’s stars (to him). The reasoning behind his idea to remake Breakfast at Tiffany’s takes the cake, though:

Ode to Audrey Hepburn

Comments Off on Ode to Audrey Hepburn 20 March 2007

When I find it, I like to profile Audrey Hepburn fan artwork because it’s nice to see people still so influenced by her and willing to make her a part of their art world. I also like to find the not so mainstream art, which means things you usually don’t see mass produced and/or for sale everywhere. I came across a place called Etsy again (I say again because it’s been sitting in my bookmarks forever, and I’d forgotten it was there), and on a whim did a search for Audrey’s name. There was one artist’s work which stood out to me, mainly this painting of Holly Golightly knitting from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (left). It’s a limited edition print in a run of 50 on canvas that you can have just on canvas, or stretched on a wooden frame, if you’re more into 3-D wall hangings. I just really like the drawing style in general, so I wanted to share!

Audrey Hepburn is still hip

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn is still hip 10 March 2007

In the midst of Paris Fashion Week and all the new collections coming out for fall 2007, it’s nice to hear that Audrey Hepburn is still alive and well on the catwalks. In spite (or because?) of Gap’s usage of her last year, women everywhere still aspire to her cigarette trousers, little black dresses, large glasses, and all around aura of sophistication and class. Bend Weekly has an article discussing Audrey’s lasting power in the world of fashion and even provide a checklist to make sure you have all the Audrey essentials in your closet. Remember, Holly Golightly had a small, bare closet in her flat, but she still managed to always look smashing. If she can do it, you can do it.

how Cameron Crowe fell in love with Audrey Hepburn

Comments Off on how Cameron Crowe fell in love with Audrey Hepburn 06 March 2007

On iFilm there’s an interview with director Cameron Crowe about Elizabethtown, and he’s asked about his obsession with Audrey Hepburn. If you’re not familiar with his films, in Vanilla Sky there is a Sabrina reference, in Jerry Maguire there’s the line “That’s more than a dress; that’s an Audrey Hepburn movie,” and in Elizabethtown there’s footage of Roman Holiday (besides “Moon River” playing throughout the film and the obvious Kirsten Dunst as a modern Holly Golightly bit throughout as well). I won’t ruin it for you, so just click the link above to go to the video. It’s short at just under 3 minutes, so the interviewer doesn’t have a chance to get too annoying. 🙂

As a special bonus, here is an animation of cute little Parisian kitties prancing about to the tune of the instrumental “Bonjour Paris” from the Funny Face soundtrack. Such a great little song! Thank you to the shy one who sent this video in.

Audrey Hepburn and Tiffany & Co.

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn and Tiffany & Co. 17 February 2007

I was out in a familiar neighborhood today and had some time to kill, so I stopped in a tiny bookstore to browse in. As I passed the art and photography books I noticed The Audrey Hepburn Treasures prominently displayed, which made me smile. On the next shelf over, however, were two Tiffany books worth looking over.

The first, Tiffany Pearls, has been mentioned here before, and showcases Tiffany’s many masterpieces involving pearls. Audrey, as Holly Golightly, is featured on the front cover and on the inside of the dust jacket. I had never looked over the book in person, and now that I have I must say that you’d either have to be an obsessive Audrey Hepburn collector or just really like pearls to buy this book. Audrey herself is hardly mentioned despite her covergirl appeal, and the pictures in the book are nothing we haven’t seen before. It is a beautiful book to look over, though. (For the record, the pearl strands Audrey is wearing in the film are in fact imitation pearls used many times by Paramount Studios.)

You can read the full list here.

knitting with Audrey Hepburn

Comments Off on knitting with Audrey Hepburn 14 February 2007

Some of you may have known that Audrey was a real-life knitter, and she was a good enough knitter to have made herself and husband Mel Ferrer matching sweaters one Christmas. Today’s news brings an article discussing good movies to knit to, and one of Audrey’s films just happened to be mentioned! I don’t even think the author knew about Audrey’s crafty hobby, either. I wanted to mention it because it was cute, and also because I love knitting to movies as well (it helps me justify the fact that I’m sitting there, staring at a screen for two hours if my hands are at least busy).

"Bloodline" author dies, Audrey Hepburn inspired Edie Sedgwick

Comments Off on "Bloodline" author dies, Audrey Hepburn inspired Edie Sedgwick 02 February 2007

Author Sidney Sheldon, who wrote many pulp-style novels and has the dubious distinction of penning the worst Audrey Hepburn film ever, died Tuesday at the age of 89 from pneumonia complications. Sheldon had been active writing screenplays for over 30 years, and Bloodline was his fourth novel out of his final 22 published books. Thankfully, it’s a lesser-known and harder to access film, and the cover art of the video tape alone should put you off of it. Is Ben Gazzara made of wax?

Tyra Banks channels Audrey Hepburn for Vanity Fair

1 Comment 08 January 2007

For the February 2007 issue of Vanity Fair, model/talkshow host Tyra Banks did some Holly Golightly-inspired photos. Although cheating by using the Rodeo Drive Tiffany & Co. instead of the New York location, the pictures are still quite nice (and you can’t really tell), and she looks tres cute.
