flixls asked: Thank you for the all hard work and dedication you and many other Audrey fans put in in finding unseen and rare photos and interviews and sharing them with the world. I appreciate it so much! When I am able to, I will try and fund your book. I can't wait to see this project go into fruition. Thanks again, xx. - Gabriella
Thank you, Gabriella. I really appreciate your kinds words. I actually had a terrible time uploading this video and adding the translations. I even had to give myself a 3 week break before getting back to it, so your message made this all worth it. I also want to thank Gloria (@LaFrenchGlo) who translated this interview from French to English. I would have NEVER been able to do that on my own and because of her, we are able to enjoy this video to the fullest.

Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchy gown from Sabrina sold at auction for $170,000. It was apart of The Personal Property Auction of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds sold on October 8, 2017.
Note: The dress had yellowed over time, which is common of this fabric.
554. Audrey Hepburn “Sabrina Fairchild” signature white organza gown with black floral embroidery from Sabrina from a design by Hubert de Givenchy.(Paramount, 1954) Historic 2-piece bespoke gown from a design by Hubert de Givenchy and worn by Audrey Hepburn in one of her most beloved roles. Acquired by Debbie Reynolds in her unparalleled Hollywood memorabilia collection. The white strapless organza gown appears light as a cloud, clinging to form in a simple pencil-like sheath dress, but subsidized by a voluminous bustled train that attaches to the back for dramatic affect. The entire confection of an ensemble is meticu lously hand embroidered with delicate black thread and pearl peacock feather motif at the bodice and hem. The unforgettable gown was not only highly visible in the Cinderella moment of the film when “Sabrina”, the daughter of a chauffeur, upstages the haughty socialites at a party, but was regularly worn off-screen for publicity around the world to promote the film.

Hi! I am the creator and manager of “Rare Audrey Hepburn”. I am a lifelong fan of Audrey Hepburn and have spent the last 8 years sharing her life, career, image, and humanitarian work on my website and social media platforms. For 3 years I have been working on building a large collection of rare photographs and negatives of Audrey Hepburn in order to publish multiple books about the celebrated actress. The money donated will go to these two projects I am working on simultaneously.
Book One: Will showcase ra re and unpublished photos of Audrey by a photographer (whose identity I would like to keep private for now) who worked with Audrey on the set of Charade, The Nun’s Story, Paris When it Sizzles, and Wait Until Dark (tbd). I’ve been working with the Photographer’s estate to fill in the missing gaps of the Photographer’s archive. I’ve spent endless hours searching and collecting photographs and magazines to complete this task. The Photographer and Audrey were personal friends and because of their familiarity he was able to capture a playful side of Audrey we rarely see. I know fans will enjoy viewing his work.
Book Two: The second book will be titled “Rare Audrey Hepburn” it will be a collection of beautiful and mostly unseen photographs of Audrey. Over the last several years, I have collected rare negatives and photos of Audrey by very famous photographers. My goal is to publish a coffee table book version of my blog. Rare and glossy photos of the actress provided with the correct sources and dates. I believe most photographs will be purchased from the photographers’ estates and will, undoubtedly, be very costly. Yet, my objective is to create a book that delivers. I want each photo to surprise even the best of Audrey fans. I’m excited just thinking about it.
For the last three plus years I have been self-funding these ventures but I now need your help. The money will go towards purchasing photographs, negatives, research materials, and archival materials.
I have wanted to publish books about Audrey since infancy. She has been an unwavering guide throughout my life. I am focused on creating the best books possible that will honor her memory. I am grateful to those who have supported my Audrey site and social media platforms over the last 8 years. Your interest has provide d me with a purpose I didn’t know I had.

taylorsmochas asked: hey whats your audrey movie suggestion bedsides, roman holiday, sabrina and breakfast at tiffany's as ive only seen those three haha. thanks!
If you like light hearted romantic comedies I’d suggest How to Steal a Million. It’s a fun caper with Peter O’Toole with 60s fashions by Givenchy.
For Suspense: Charade or Wait Until Dark. Charade stars Audrey and Cary Grant in a Hitchcock-like suspense movie, filled with fun, mystery, and romance. Once again, beautiful clothes by Givenchy.
Wait Until Dark is best watched at night. Audrey gives a chilling performance as a blind woman fighting for her life against an evil Alan Arkin.
If you’re in the mood for more notable performances then I’d suggest The Nun’s Story or The Children’s Hour. Both deal with powerful messages and Audrey gives exceptional performances.
If you’re in the mood for a musical then Funny Face or My Fair Lady. Funny Face stars Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire set in t he fashion mecca of the world, Paris. There are musical numbers by Gershwin and a fashion extravaganza by Givenchy. It’s about a bookish model traveling to Paris for her fashion debut.
My Fair Lady shows Audrey’s range as she charms and pulls at the audience’s heart strings. She and Rex Harrison are a fantastic duo. Cecil Beaton is the creative genius behind this film and the fashions.
For something a little more melancholy by very 60s, Two for the Road. This is a great film and once again shows Audrey’s range. Her co-star was Albert Finney (who she also had an affair with during the production of Two for the Road). It’s about the dissolution of a marriage, creatively directed by Stanley Donen. It’s also a departure from her usual collaboration with Hubert de Givenchy. Audrey helped select the clothes in this very modern romantic comedy.
They are all great films. I would recommend every single one. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with an Audrey movie.
Edit: I forgot to mention Love in the Afternoon which is actually a personal favorite of mine. It has a similar feel to Sabrina. Like in Sabrina, Audrey plays a youthfully naive woman who falls for an older man played by Gary Cooper. Using her creativity, she embellishes her past romantic rendezvous in hopes of catching Gary Cooper’s interest. She’s charming, funny, and captivatingly beautiful in this movie. Her wardrobe is also by Givenchy and she wears some of my favorite pieces. Also, if you’re a fan of Audrey’s wardrobe in this film, I would recommend watching Bonjour Tristesse. Jean Seberg wears similar dresses from Givenchy’s same collection.
