Audrey Hepburn, on her birthday


Today, May 4th is Audrey Hepburn's birthday. I thought I'd celebrate the occasion by sharing Philippe Halsman's series La Vigna taken in the Italian countryside in 1954. I love her chic cropped haircut, breezy casual outfits and simple sandals. She is luminous, energetic yet elegant in this casual setting and it's one my favourite series of her.





"Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present, and I don't want 
to spoil any of it by fretting about the future."
