Audrey in Rome Hardback
"Audrey in Rome" offers a revealing portrait of the star's life in the Eternal City as she truly lived it for more than two decades.
This collection is a rare treat for Audrey fans, for thumbing through its pages is like having Hepburn's family scrapbook in hand.
Here's Audrey strolling with a good friend on the city streets, shopping for flowers or stationery, eating breakfast on the Piazza Navona, or walking her Yorkie, Mr. Famous. Throughout the book, commentary by stylist Sciascia Gambaccini sheds light on her glamorous clothes and accessories - from the little black dress and straw handbag to the ballet flats - that comprised Audrey's distinctive, elegant, and still much-imitated look. Candid on-set photographs taken during the filming of movies made during that era, such as "Roman Holiday", "War and Peace", "The Nun's Story", and "Breakfast at Tiffany's" are included as well.
With candid imagery and text, "Audrey in Rome" provides a wholly new perspective on one of the world's most enduring and beloved film and fashion icons - making it a unique collector's item for Audrey fans worldwide.

Review by daniellnic
Audrey in Rome was my first time flipping through a book of Audrey Hepburn pictures. Her son, Luca Dotti, curated the photographs – with the purpose of presenting some that were little seen to the public – but most of the photos seemed to be publicity shots, and Audrey attending dinners and events. Very few were private family photos. I didn’t know a lot about Audrey Hepburn, so I enjoyed the anecdotes, and info surrounding her life and movies. While this is nice and easy to flip through, I doubt that die-hard Audrey fans will find much here that will be new for them.
