The National Portrait Gallery of London is currently presenting a fascinating and beautiful photographic exhibition which illustrates Audrey Hepburn’s life (1929-1993), who became worldwide famous with the « Breakfast at Tiffany’s » film and because of her philanthropic intensive work with the UNICEF. The exhibition is open until October 18th, 2015 only ! This is the place to be in London !

 

From her early years as a chorus girl in London’s West End through to her philanthropic work in later life, the Portraits of an icon celebrates one of the world’s most photographed and recognizable stars, Audrey Hepburn. She was so adorable inside and outside.

You can discover a selection of more than 70 images including classic ones that we think we always saw and some rarely seen prints leading twentieth-century photographers such as Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Terry O’Neil, Norman Parkinson and Irvin Penn.

Magazine covers, film stills and archival material are alongside.

The exhibition is ending with an array of vintage magazine covers, including ELLE, Vogue and Jour de France (...) so amazing !

The title of the exhibition should be « Portraits of an angel ! »

We are grateful for this unique and extraordinary journey with Audrey, a real queen of beauty and pureness.
