If any of you have seen the 1954 Oscar-winning film Sabrina, you’ll know that Audrey Hepburn was her ever-timeless, beautiful self all throughout the film. When I stumbled upon this incredible stash of behind-the-scenes shots by photographer Mark Shaw, I thought, “Oh – maybe we’ll see what magic movie star looks like when they’re having a bad hair day.” Sadly, it’s not the case. I don’t think Miss Hepburn could have a bad day if she tried.
Entitled Charmed by Audrey, these photos were originally shot for a feature in Life magazine to capture all her daily movements, from hair-washing to acting to studying her script. Surprisingly, most of the originals were lost for over fifty years and it wasn’t until 2008 that Shaw’s first wife found them hidden away in dusty boxes and had them published. I just love these pictures! Her mega-watt smile literally lights up everyone, and they give us some really neat insight to the Hollywood of the Golden Era.
Thank goodness for inquisitive women! Enjoy!
