Every fashionista knows the iconic scene of Audrey Hepburn standing outside of Tiffany & Co. in a sleek black dress, sunglasses, and pearls in the 1961 Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The image is part of the fashion lexicon and has inspired the LBD for the past 4 decades. The 1960s was a tremulous time with radical changes in fashion and Audrey’s sophisticated style was a beacon of class with an edge of trendsetting transformation. Curator and photographic preservationist David Wills’ book Audrey: The 60s is a collection of spectacular museum quality photographs by the likes of Richard Avedon, Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, William Klein, among others.
The collection includes images from all 8 Hepburn’s 1960s film and creates a striking argument for the importance of Hepburn’s relationship with Givenchy in her formation as a style icon. Photos are accompanied by quotes from friends and colleagues, but some of the best quotes come from Audrey herself.
Enough can’t be said for the print quality of Audrey: The 60s . The images can only be described as rich, creamy, and silky. The glamor that is Hepburn is emphasized by the care taken in restoration and print.
