Audrey in Rome_1

Saying that Audrey Hepburn is ones icon is far from original, but perhaps saying why has more value. I admire Audrey Hepburn for her passion for living that never faded, even though her life wasn’t free from disappointments, loss and heartbreak. According to testimonials, Audrey was a real lady – gracious, kind, generous, discreet and forever elegant. She had the ability to make people around her feel special and never forgot about those she loved. Her image and personal style affected a whole generation, proving that female can be alluring being modest and natural. 

As a collector of publications dedicated to Audrey Hepburn, I welcomed this album presenting her relation with Rome. Strength of this collection of photographs lies in their ability to create an intimate portrait of Audrey – behind the scenes, as a private person who could be seen on the streets of Rome. Charming and classically beautiful in every situation, Audrey Hepburn can be a role model for every woman who values tradition, good manners and understated elegance.
