Audrey Hepburn (1929–1993) Hepburn trained as a ballerina, but soon turned to stage and screen. She played a “slender, elfin, and wistful beauty” according to the New York Times and won the Academy Award for Best Actress in Roman Holiday (1953). Her stylish sophistication again came out in Funny Face (1957), Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), and My Fair Lady (1964). In this iconic shot, Karsh captured the starlet’s exquisite features, patrician bearing, and chic sense of fashion. The clarity of large-format photography in the hands of a master reveals the perfection of her complexion and the elegant extension of her eyebrows.
