She Wore Givenchy… An Hour with Audrey Hepburn at The Ritz

An Hour with Audrey Hepburn at the Ritz, 1964 – An exhibition of photographs by Angela Williams will take place at the Heartbreak Gallery in Marylebone from 28th February to 28th March 2013.

This exhibition of Audrey Hepburn portraits has two stories – the first in 1964 when freelance photographer Angela Williams was given the assignment to photograph Monsieur Pompidou and his wife for a national newspaper. Once in Paris she was told to head up to a suite at the Ritz and photograph the person staying there…and that she had one hour only.

The second story almost fifty years later when Angela Williams unearthed photographic portraits taken earlier in her career . Amongst the rock stars (a very young Pink Floyd), Hollywood royalty (the Fonda siblings, a young Barbra Streisand, Anthony Perkins, Paul Newman ) and ‘It girls’ of the day Marianne Faithfull and Cathy McGowan, was Audrey Hepburn.

The photography film roll has been treated and the restored but the images remain the same. In just one hour with this iconic actress and humanitarian, Angela captured her timeless style and beauty in this stunning collection of portraits. She wore Givenchy… reveals the very essence of Audrey Hepburn and her star qualities.
