Who doesn’t like looking at Hepburn?

Words by

Giulia Brugliera
Despite reaching her prime over six decades ago, the late Audrey Hepburn is still as relevant as ever. So relevant, in fact, that there’s a major Hepburn exhibition happening at London’s National Portrait Gallery as you read this. So naturally there’s a book to accompany.
Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon is a largely informative and completely beautiful hardback book that chronicles Hepburn’s career in, you guessed it, portraits. It follows her early years as a chorus girl right through to her humanitarian work in later years, with a mix of fashion shoots, publicity snaps and family photos.
This is one for the coffee table. Because really, who doesn’t like looking at Hepburn?
