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.show more

Back cover copy

Assembled by Audrey Hepburn's son Luca Dotti, Audrey in Rome is an intimate collection of almost two hundred candid photographs of the beloved actress and much-imitated style icon during the twenty-year period she made Rome her home. A private album of rare snapshots--many never published before--of Audrey Hepburn in her everyday life as a citizen of the Eternal City, Audrey in Rome is a treasure for every fan of her films and her impeccable, timeless style. With an introduction by Dotti that reveals Audrey's private side and three photo-filled chapters organized by decade, the book captures the actress as she strolls around the city alone and with family and friends, walks her Yorkie, Mr. Famous, has breakfast in Piazza Navona, visits the local florist, and more. The book also contains set photographs of the films she made during her Rome years (Roman Holiday, War and Peace, The Nun's Story, Breakfast at Tiffany's) and of the famous clothes and accessories that helped create her iconic look. Irresistible as the actress herself, Audrey in Rome opens the door to Hepburn's personal world.show more
