Audrey Hepburn

Icons of the Century

From her inspired film performances (“Sabrina,” “Roman Holiday,” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “My Fair Lady”) to her work as a UNICEF ambassador, Audrey Hepburn brought a singular level of class and grace to Hollywood.

A childhood informed by blue blood lines and Nazi-imposed deprivation imbued her with great nobility and childlike vulnerability. With her penchant for couture, she became a groundbreaking style icon in an era of sexpot starlets, melding some of the screen’s most memorable characters with her own regal charm and sophistication.

Among her honors were an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy a Tony, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
