Audrey Hepburn in Paris II
Audrey Hepburn, 1965, Douglas Kirkland.
During an interview with the Huffington Post, photographer Douglas Kirkland recalled his interaction with Audrey Hepburn when this photograph was taken; ‘"I just said to Audrey, "Let’s be a little more playful here." I said, "Throw your eyes to the side." I didn’t have to say any more than that. She did it with a big smile. Click. That was how that image happened. It’s probably one of my favourite of my career, period.
