It's that time of year again for the actresses of the Golden Age of film to come back from the dead and cover a Vanity Fair magazine!
For the mag's May issue, they selected a colorized photo of fashion icon Audrey Hepburn shot by Bud Fraker, the same photographer behind those iconic Breakfast at Tiffany's portraits.
In the article, her son Luca Dotti talks about his mother in ways that not many have heard before.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On her scarf collection:
"She had, like every woman, maybe 30 or 40. It was a good way to be in disguise, big sunglasses and a scarf."
On her appearance:
"She thought she had a big nose and big feet, and she was too skinny and not enough breast. She would look in the mirror and say, 'I don’t understand why people see me as beautiful.'"
On aging gracefully:
"She was always a little bit surprised by the efforts women made to look young. She was actually very happy about growing older because it meant more time for herself, more time for her family, and separation from the frenzy of youth and beauty that is Hollywood."
Even after all these years Audrey still epitomizes elegance and class!
