Lovin’ Miss Hepburn
I was looking around online for some beautiful illustrations of the timeless Audrey Hepburn, and I couldn’t find ANY anywhere – who would have thunk? In my new Vintage Fashion Illustration book, I found a gorgeous illustration of her, but it just doesn’t seem to exist on the internet – boo hoo – I’ll have to keep searching. Jennifer ended up asking me for some ideas for an illustration, and of course I said AUDREY! (as she’s a fellow fan) and she whipped out this amazing likeness below. Miss Hepburn would have been proud! It looks exactly like her!
I swooned and actually gasped when I saw it. I hope you do the same – I’m always amazed by Jennifer’s work! I sent her this reference photo below, and I think she captured it to a T! The dress was designed by the lovely Edith Head, and was worn by Audrey in her film Funny Face. Still need to rent that one day – I feel an Audrey marathon coming on!! (:
