A Look at Katharine and Audrey Hepburn

This is Katharine Hepburn captured by Cecil Beaton. She was starring in the Theatre Guild's hit "The Philadelphia Story" a play by Philip Barry at the time, so this would have been about 1940.

I've been scanning a bunch of pictures lately of Audrey, and it had never occurred to me to think that they may be related. But as it turns out, they aren't related. They sure could have been though, don't you think?

Audrey on set during the making of Sabrina, which began in the summer of 1953. Sabrina brought Hubert de Givency into Audrey's life. As she wore "yards and yards" of his creations on the set, she never dreamed that he would be instrumental in creating the "Hepburn look." Audrey and Givenchy became friends for life and he remained her favorite designer. Here she is wearing a famous Givenchy gown, Audrey takes direction from Billy Wilder.

We've written a post about Audrey previously here on Glamoursplash, and we'll be sharing more pictures of her next week. Until then, have a fabulous weekend.
