Charmed by Audrey

Audrey Hepburn remains a recognizable name and face from her roles in Sabrina, An Affair to Remember, and Breakfast at Tiffany's (to name a few).

Born May 4, 1929, Audrey remains one of few entertainers who have won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards.

In 1953, Paramount was making a film with a new actress named Audrey Hepburn. LIFE magazine assigned one of their top young photographers, Mark Shaw, to shoot a feature and he spent weeks with Audrey on and round the set. Mark Shaw's access to Audrey Hepburn, unheard of today, resulted in an amazing array of photos and over 60 rolls of film that captured the charm and grace on set and in everyday life. While the handful of photographs published in LIFE for the Sabrina article have lived on as beloved images of Hepburn, the majority of the negatives were misplaced and never published. Rediscovered 50 years later, these numerous never-before-seen photographs complete one of the most intimate looks at Hepburn's youth and rising star, Charmed by Audrey.
