With 177 superb photographs, Audrey Hepburn is a sumptuous celebration of Hepburn as a beloved fashion icon and actress. Karney tells the story of Hepburn’s life, from her childhood in Nazi-occupied Holland, through her early aspirations to become a ballet dancer, the instant and universal acclaim of her onscreen début, and her years as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after stars, to her later life working among the poorest children of the Third World. Karney’s book gives fans a rare view into the life of a beloved star. Hepburn’s acting career began after a series of minor revue and film roles in London. Hepburn was spotted by the writer Colette, who immediately cast her in the central role of a Broadway adaptation of her story, Gigi. Soon afterwards, Hepburn was offered a role alongside Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday, for which she collected an Oscar for Best Actress. The book highlights all her success that followed: she won the Tony Award for Best Actress for Ondine, captivated audiences as Natasha in War and Peace, and was highly praised for her brilliance in a serious role in The Nun’s Story. Hepburn’s style was perfection and her clothes—many of them designed by Givenchy, who dressed her for Funny Face in 1957—placed her on the world’s Best Dressed Women list for several consecutive years. Her personality and sensuous yet untouchable beauty made her irresistible to the public. On Hepburn’s death, Liz Taylor said, “God has a most beautiful new angel now that will know just what to do in heaven.”

Though starring in only some 20 films and two engagements on Broadway, Audrey Hepburn earned her reputation through the quality of her performances rather than the quantity of her work. Unlike other legends of Hollywood, she was never driven by her career. Hepburn worked only when she wished, talked to the press only when convenient, and took years off between movies to spend time with her family. This book details all of her performances.

Her on-screen persona somehow “blended sleek European sophistication and a vulnerable, waif-like innocence,” wrote the Los Angeles Times. With that persona, she emerged as one of Hollywood's premier leading ladies. She was Audrey Hepburn. In the 1950s, Hepburn enchanted moviegoers in such films as "Roman Holiday" and "Breakfast at Tiffany's.” Her other films included "War and Peace," "Funny Face," "The Nun's Story," "Charade," "My Fair Lady" and "Wait Until Dark." As the Times wrote, “If Miss Hepburn sometimes found herself in Cinderella roles, the shoe fit.” The “Audrey Hepburn Movie Posters Book” presents, for the first time and in full color, more than 40 posters and lobby cards from Hepburn's award-winning film career.
