Introduction by Luca Dotti and Foreword by Giambattista Valli

A gorgeous, sophisticated celebration of Audrey Hepburn’s lifelong connection to the City of Light, featuring all the places in Paris she loved most, illustrated with vivid photographs, and featuring never-before-published stories about her films, family, friendships, photoshoots, and fashions.

One of the world’s most iconic actresses and one of the world’s most iconic cities together in one extraordinary volume.

There has always been a special connection between Audrey Hepburn and Paris. In Audrey Hepburn in Paris, Meghan Friedlander, curator of the fan site Rare Audrey Hepburn, and Audrey’s son Luca Dotti offer a unique look at the legendary actress’s life and love affair with the City of Light.

The influence of Paris on Audrey is visible in everything from her films to her fashion choices to the friendships she cherished. Through rare or never-before-published photographs, quotes, and anecdotes, this intimate book offers an intriguing portrait of the star in all her many facets—from the roles she played in films to her roles as devoted mother, doting pet owner, avid gardener, and devoted humanitarian, all played out against the backdrop of this special place that was ever present in her memories. Audrey Hepburn in Paris gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse of her life there—capturing her favorite sights, sounds, and shops, always with a characteristic sense of charm, glamour, and joie de vivre that is perfectly Parisian.

Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of Paris that made it so precious to Audrey, from famous films, chic couture, fabled photoshoots, and elegant events to the quieter moments with family and friends rarely seen by the public, including her friendship with her close companion and go-to designer Hubert de Givenchy.

Illustrated with 200 full-color and black-and-white photographs, packed with tender, funny, and glamorous personal stories told by Audrey and those who knew her best, Audrey Hepburn in Paris reveals this beloved star as never before—and pays homage to the city that shaped so much of Audrey’s life, through Audrey’s eyes. 

Meghan Friedlander is a lifelong fan of Audrey Hepburn. She began her popular website Rare Audrey Hepburn in 2010, posting rare and unseen photos of the celebrated actress.
