Product description

"Audrey in Rome" offers a revealing portrait of the star's life in the Eternal City as she truly lived it for more than two decades. This collection is a rare treat for Audrey fans, for thumbing through its pages is like having Hepburn's family scrapbook in hand. Here's Audrey strolling with a good friend on the city streets, shopping for flowers or stationery, eating breakfast on the Piazza Navona, or walking her Yorkie, Mr. Famous. Throughout the book, commentary by stylist Sciascia Gambaccini sheds light on her glamorous clothes and accessories - from the little black dress and straw handbag to the ballet flats - that comprised Audrey's distinctive, elegant, and still much-imitated look. Candid on-set photographs taken during the filming of movies made during that era, such as "Roman Holiday", "War and Peace", "The Nun's Story", and "Breakfast at Tiffany's" are included as well. With candid imagery and text, "Audrey in Rome" provides a wholly new perspective on one of the world's most enduring and beloved film and fashion icons - making it a unique collector's item for Audrey fans worldwide.
