Audrey Hepburn and Oscar Style

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn and Oscar Style 26 February 2007

In honor of the Oscars tonight, I thought I’d pull up something from the old Fab Audrey archives: scans from a People magazine special called Oscar Style. For a while, it seemed that someone at People really loved Audrey, since quite a few special edition magazines came out and she was always featured prominently, if not on the cover itself. Oscar Style is no exception!

There’s nothing new to report, so instead I give you the charming haircutting scene from Roman Holiday. I love that barber.

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.

So I wasn’t able to find an Audrey calendar the other day. And on Amazon all calendars “ship in 4-6 weeks.” By then January will be over! But while I couldn’t find any Audrey calendars, I did stumble across some other excellent calendars you might be interested in.

Comments Off on Audrey at a theatre near you; Edie Sedgwick and stencils 15 December 2006

First up, a few theatres in America have been publishing their upcoming attractions on line and making it into Google news, so you might be able to catch Audrey on the silver screen soon!

San Diego’s recently renovated North Park Theatre will be running a film festival called “Fabulous Faces of the Fifties.” Audrey is, of course, one of those fabulous faces, and if you’re in the area, Roman Holiday will be playing January 11-14. For more information, go here.

vintage Audrey, more Little Black Dress, and making your dreams come true

Comments Off on vintage Audrey, more Little Black Dress, and making your dreams come true 03 December 2006

From the ever resourceful Audrey Hepburn Circle comes yet another great find: Time Magazine’s first ever article on Audrey! 53 years ago, a then unknown actress was put on the cover of Time. It was the first — and only — time an actor had ever been featured on the cover before even one feature film of theirs had been released. That unknown was Audrey Hepburn, and you can read the entire article here. It’s an exceptional article and has a surprisingly detailed biography on her as well. You almost don’t need to read a book on her after reading this!

"Roman Holiday" screengrabs gallery!

Comments Off on "Roman Holiday" screengrabs gallery! 13 November 2006

Finally, the Roman Holiday screengrabs are here. There’s 469 grabs for your enjoyment, and I must say this was a really fun one to work on. I mean, they all are, but I loved this film even more after doing the grabs, and it reminded me of just how much I loved all the authentic Italian talent they had in this film. I will always love Mario Delani, the barber.

Keats or Shelley?

Comments Off on Keats or Shelley? 12 November 2006

The next picture gallery is a little delayed (mainly because work was especially harsh today and I’m knackered out), but I also kept getting distracted yesterday while working on it. In Roman Holiday, Ann/Anya and Joe debate whether two poems Anne recites are by John Keats or Percy Bysshe Shelley. I know people still wonder who wrote what even now, and the Internet has surprisingly little information that I could find. But I did find the origins of Anne’s second recitation, which is called “Arethusa.” And it’s by Shelley, so Joe won that round. 😉 The first stanza follows:

a verdict on Harper’s, a hint at the next photo gallery

Comments Off on a verdict on Harper’s, a hint at the next photo gallery 10 November 2006

There’s an article critiquing the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar (the one with Natalie Portman in Audrey’s dress) here. While the author says good things about the dress and Natalie’s short article, she doesn’t much care for the rest of the magazine. The reason? The women in it are too thin. Thankfully, she doesn’t cast blame with Audrey, but still, it’s a glossy fashion magazine — what were you expecting?

We also have a new submission to the lookalikes page, which you can see here. Don’t forget that the lookalikes is totally run by you, the fans, and I don’t submit any of my own. So if you know of an actress or other well-known person that resembles Audrey, send your suggestions to us! There may be voting on the lookalikes soon, to rate which ones look the most like Audrey . . .
