Will the world ever tire of admiring Audrey Hepburn's grace, beauty, and elegance? Not on our watch — and not if the National Portrait Gallery has anything to say about it.
The London institution will be launching a tribute to the screen legend this summer, nearly two months after what would have been her 86th birthday
. Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon
will run from 2 July to 18 October 2015, featuring images of the actress and humanitarian from a toast of prominent photographers, including Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, and Norman Parkinson.
More than 60 images will be on display, with film stills, magazine covers, and other archival material also on view. Destined to be the city's most stylish exhibit of the summer, the event is being produced with support from the Audrey Hepburn Estate and the star's two sons.
We're not saying you have to show up to the museum in a little black Givenchy dress, but it wouldn't go amiss. Just don't go with a cup of coffee and a pastry in a paper bag. This may be all about Audrey, but it's not that kind of place.
