Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of An Icon


While in London in September I’m eager to drop by the National Portrait Gallery, one of my favorite museums. A new exhibition, Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon, opens July 2 and boasts rare photographs of the actress by prominent photographers such as Cecil Beaton, Mark Shaw, Howell Conant, and Norman Parkinson. The images follow Audrey’s legendary career from her young chorus girl days in London’s West End to her philanthropic work abroad with UNICEF. Given the fanfare surrounding all things Audrey, the show is sure to draw crowds. I can’t wait to see what they come up with.

VISIT: Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of An Icon, National Portrait Gallery, St. Martin’s Place, London, July 2 – 18 October 18, 2015

    My husband and I will also be back in London at the end of September (perfect time of year to go, if you ask us) and this exhibit is at the top of my list! Audrey has been a personal favorite of mine since before I can remember…

    this looks lovely! I’m going to be in the UK at the end of October so I’m just going to miss it. Can’t wait to hear about your adventures!

    Why was she so cute? Even in her old age, she looked amazing. My name is AuBrey, but people commonly miscall me Audrey… and I don’t mind one bit :)

    Please report back once you’ve seen the visit!! Can’t wait!
