Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Audrey Hepburn, 60s icon.

Audrey Hepburn charmed audiences in the 1950s as a new type of cinema personality—gamine, doe-eyed, and refreshingly casual. By the 1960s she had transformed into a trendsetting sophisticate and achieved unrivaled careers as an actress, model, movie star, and champion for underprivileged children worldwide. Curator and photographic preservationist David Wills has amassed one of the world's largest private collections of original Audrey Hepburn photographs. Now, in Audrey: The 60s, he has gathered spectacular museum-quality work from her key photographers—Richard Avedon, Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, William Klein, Terry O'Neill, Howell Conant, Bob Willoughby, Pierluigi Pratulon, Bud Fraker, and many others—to create this stunning portfolio of images that pays homage to the most beloved and enduring style icon of the “decade of change.”

Among the highlights:

  • Rare and classic images digitally restored from their original negatives and transparencies.
  • Never-before-seen publicity photos and candids from the sets of Breakfast at Tiffany's, Charade, My Fair Lady, How to Steal a Million, and Two for the Road.
  • Unpublished outtakes and rarely seen images from Vogue fashion sessions, some not published since their original appearance.
  • Previously unpublished photos by Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, William Klein, Howell Conant, Bob Willoughby, Pierluigi Pratulon, and many others.

Pairing more than two hundred first-generation photos with reflections and original quotes from friends, photographers, designers, work associates, and Audrey herself, Audrey: The 60s is an unforgettable showcase of the actress's timeless beauty and extraordinarily influential style.

Synopsis:

The 1960s was a decade that Hollywood actress and international fashion icon Audrey Hepburn defined with her gamine, elegant style. Audrey: The 60s is a landmark photographic chronicle of her film and fashion career during those tumultuous years. Regarded as one of the most beautiful and best-dressed women in the world, Audrey Hepburn had timeless appeal—and this breathtaking photographic collection compiled by David Wills, author of Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis, captures this legendary star at the height of her career—from Breakfast at Tiffanys to the Vogue fashion shoots with world-class photographers that captured her unique, trendsetting style.
