She Wore Givenchy…

1 Comment 28 February 2013

hepburn_648It seems London has all the good gallery shows lately! I received notice recently that some new, never before seen photographs from a lost photo shoot in 1964 will be on display in London starting today and running through April 7th. The exhibit is called She Wore Givenchy…An Hour at the Ritz, Paris, 1964, and was photographed by Angela Williams.

If you love looking at pictures of Audrey Hepburn – and really, who doesn’t? – then you most certainly have seen photographs of her that were taken by Bob Willoughby. You may not know his name, but rest assured, you know his work and love it.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s: The Play (again)

7 Comments 06 October 2009

I blame this on being out of the country and away from computers when the story was confirmed, but have you all heard about the stage production of Breakfast at Tiffany’s now on in London? It previewed at the end of September and is now running at the Theatre Royal Haymarket until the end of January 2010. Interesting…

Does anyone have any inclination to see it?

The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-1957

Comments Off on The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-1957 16 March 2007

There’s a new fashion exhibit coming to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in September that’s all about the golden age of modern fashion: 1947-1957, the ten year span when fashion went from war utilitarian to post-war lushness. While it seems that the exhibit will feature mostly Dior pieces, Givenchy’s pieces will be on display. Specifically, a replica of the bright blue cape Audrey Hepburn wore in Funny Face will be shown, along with fashion portraits by Cecil Beaton and Richard Avedon (and perhaps some Audrey portraits?). You can read more about the exhibit and the designers that will be featured here, and The Independent has another article that goes more into fashion in general during that period.

Lucky London, they’re having all the Audrey luck lately!

Seeing Audrey Hepburn’s first screen test

Comments Off on Seeing Audrey Hepburn’s first screen test 06 March 2007

While the British Film Institute’s new free digital archive isn’t open to the public yet (that’s March 14), a reporter for This Is London got to try out the new kiosk and briefly mentions Audrey’s screentest. It’s apparently a silent clip, though in colour, and it doesn’t sound like she was very good. The phrase “wildly overacting” was used. Still, it’s neat to read about, and for you Audrey fans in the UK, especially the London area, this article will give you a good idea of what to expect — and where to go — when the kiosk is open and you want to see the clip for yourself.
