Jun 16 Audrey Hepburn watercolor illustration
Of all the great movie stars of the ’50s and ’60s, none seems to resonate quite as potently in our own time as Audrey Hepburn. Her status as an icon of both classic film and contemporary fashion — where her name is an adjective (“That’s so Audrey”) — has grown at an exponential rate.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my top 10 favorite movies of all time, like many other might agree. It was a color film, but for some reasons lots of the still pictures from the movie are black and white, including this famous picture of a wide-eyed Audrey, holding a cigarette holder. I gave color to it in my watercolor painting. What do you think? Does it reflect her personality? Sweet, unassuming, and whimsical.
