Audrey Hepburn Is Eternally Elegant in These Rarely Seen Photos

When we talk about fashion icons, Audrey Hepburn is at the very top of the list.

From cropped black pants and ballet flats to perfect LBDs, we can never get enough Audrey style. So we were pretty excited to learn that London’s National Portrait Gallery is exhibiting rare photos of the Oscar-winning actress next month, including several personal photos that have never been seen by the public.

Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon, which runs from July 2 to October 18, charts Hepburn’s career from her early days as a chorus girl in the West End to her major motion pictures (there’s even a photo of her costume test for Sabrina!). If you happen to be passing through London, definitely stop by, and if not, we’ve got you covered. Here are 10 of the most charming pictures of Audrey we’ve ever seen.
