Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon

The National Portrait Gallery are currently showing a wonderful collection of Audrey Hepburn images documenting her life (1929-1993) from chorus girl to international actress, iconic fashionista and overseas aid worker.

“A selection of more than seventy images will define Hepburn’s iconography, including classic and rarely seen prints from leading twentieth-century photographers such as Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson and Irving Penn. Alongside these, an array of vintage magazine covers, film stills, and extraordinary archival material will complete her captivating story.”

The exhibition runs until 18 October 2015 (entry is £10) so plenty of time to catch it and if that’s not enough to tempt you, the National Portrait Gallery also has a great cafe with delicious cake! If you can’t make it though, worry not as there’s an accompanying book by the same title (exclusive to the gallery) available here.
