Audrey Hepburn was one of the most admired and emulated women of the twentieth century, and has become a timeless style icon. But her beauty was more than skin deep and for the first time, this style biography reveals the details made up her appeal. Drawing on original interviews with luminaries such as Hubert de Givenchy and Gregory Peck, and featuring memories of the star from the likes of Steven Spielberg and Ralph Lauren, Keogh's gorgeous book brings the real Audrey to life. With more than ninety colour and black and white photos, many of which have never been published before, as well as original designer sketches from Vera Wang, Monolo Blahnik and Alexander McQueen, Audrey Style gives measure to the grace, humour, intelligence and, of course, inimitable fashion finesse that was Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Style was first published by Aurum in 2000, and has been selling and reprinting ever since. It quickly established itself not only as a beautiful, covetable item that, once picked up, had to be bought - but also as that rare breed, a book with appeal to many different constituencies and markets. Fans of Audrey Hepburn (of whom there are so many) bought it as a loving tribute to a great film actress and style icon. Fashion and design students bought it as a work of reference and inspiration. Readers of biography bought it as the account of a life that spanned everything from Breakfast at Tiffanys to tireless work for the United Nations. Now Audrey Style is finally republished in paperback, the year after Pamela Clarke Keogh's subsequent Audrey Hepburn book, the delightful What Would Audrey Do?, also published by Aurum, has sold over 10,000 copies in just six months. There are many books about Audrey Hepburn, and a seemingly inexhaustible appetitite for books about her from the bookbuying public. But Audrey Style is one of the classics, and available now to a whole new market. Pamela Clarke Keogh is also the author of What Would Audrey Do? and Jackie Style (both published by Aurum). She divides her time between New York and London.Biographie de l'auteur :
