Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Assembled by Audrey Hepburn's son Luca Dotti, Audrey in Rome is an intimate collection of almost two hundred candid photographs of the beloved actress and much-imitated style icon during the twenty-year period she made Rome her home.

A private album of rare snapshots—many never published before—of Audrey Hepburn in her everyday life as a citizen of the Eternal City, Audrey in Rome is a treasure for every fan of her films and her impeccable, timeless style. With an introduction by Dotti that reveals Audrey's private side and three photo-filled chapters organized by decade, the book captures the actress as she strolls around the city alone and with family and friends, walks her Yorkie, Mr. Famous, has breakfast in Piazza Navona, visits the local florist, and more. The book also contains set photographs of the films she made during her Rome years (Roman Holiday, War and Peace, The Nun's Story, Breakfast at Tiffany's) and of the famous clothes and accessories that helped create her iconic look. Irresistible as the actress herself, Audrey in Rome opens the door to Hepburn's personal world.

Synopsis:

During the twenty years that she lived in Rome, Audrey Hepburn—legendary actress, fashion icon, and humanitarian—was the epitome of chic European style, from her little black dresses to her ballet flats. Her partnership with designer Hubert de Givenchy resulted in some of the most memorable and timeless looks on film.

Audrey in Rome is a gorgeous coffee table book that includes almost 200 candid photographs of the movie star--many of which have never been published before. These rare snapshots give us glimpses into the everyday life of the gamine star of such classic films as Roman Holiday, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Sabrina.

Edited by her son, Luca Dotti, and Ludovica Damiani, film and theater writer and producer, and with text by fashion director and stylist Sciascia Gambaccini, Audrey in Rome is as personal as having Audrey Hepburn's family scrapbook in your hands.
