Like grandmother, like granddaughter.
Audrey Hepburn‘s granddaughter, Emma Ferrer, channels her iconic grandmother in a striking spread in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar. In fitting fashion, the man behind the lens has a special connection to Hepburn. Michael Avedon is the grandson of famed photographer Richard Avedon, who shot the Sabrina actress on numerous occasions and was fictionalized in one of Hepburn’s most memorable films, Funny Face.
“As a child I couldn’t really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family,” Emma, the daughter of Audrey’s oldest son, Sean, with her first husband, Mel Ferrer, and wife Luca.
In the accompanying images for Harper’s Bazaar, Ferrer, 20, wearing Lanvin, Max Mara and more, channels Hepburn in a series of shots inspired by Funny Face and My Fair Lady.
Although the art student never met her Oscar-winning grandmother (Hepburn died in 1993, just months after being diagnosed with cancer), she is familiar with her most famous roles. “I haven’t seen all of her movies,” she said. “When I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s, I enjoyed it the same way any young girl would. I’ve seen My Fair Lady and Roman Holiday, but I supposed my favorite is Funny Face.”
