Audrey Hepburn is by far the definition of the classic Hollywood superstars: she starred in more than 20 classics from the Golden Age of Hollywood, from her first leading lady role in Roman Holiday to musical My Fair Lady and romantic-comedies Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, she changed the beauty and fashion industry by creating a signature look that woman today are still eager to recreate and she left behind a legacy powerful enough to shape the world.

To celebrate her and to mark twenty-five years after her death, this August, Proud Galleries London brings together a rare collection of Audrey Hepburn photographs taken by some of the world’s most respected fashion photographers.

Her thick winged eyeliner, sweeping fringe and iconic style are captured in beautiful shots, from high-profile ones to more intimate candids. With portraits by Terry O’Neill, Douglas Kirkland, Mark Shaw and Norman Parkinson on display, this exhibition in the heart of London honours Hepburn in true Hollywood style.

The exhibition is available during 7 August-30 September 2018.
