Audrey Hepburn (Odrė Hèbern) was a renowned American actress, born Edda Kathleen Hepburn-Ruston (1929-1993). She attended S. Gaskell’s ballet school in Amsterdam in 1946 and M. Rambert’s ballet school in London in 1948. In 1951, she settled in the United States and began acting in Broadway theaters, starring in productions such as Gigi (1951), based on S. G. Colette’s novel, Ondine (1954) by J. Giraudoux, and many others. From 1988 to 1992, she served as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

In film, Hepburn was best known for her romantic roles in musicals, melodramas, and comedies. Her most notable performances include Princess Ann in Roman Holiday (1953), for which she won an Academy Award in 1954, Sabrina in Sabrina (1954), Natasha Rostova in War and Peace (1956), Nicole in How to Steal a Million (1957), Ariane in Love in the Afternoon (1957), Jo Stockton in Funny Face (1957), Sister Luke in The Nun’s Story (1959), Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), Regina in Charade (1963), Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady (1964), Joanna Drayton in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967), and Susy Hendrix in Wait Until Dark (1967).

The book tells the story of Hepburn’s life from her early roles to her humanitarian work with UNICEF. It explores her unique portrayal of the child-woman archetype and her sincere and lyrical acting style. The publication is richly illustrated with clear black-and-white and color photographs. The final chapter of the book focuses on her humanitarian work with UNICEF.
