Synopsis

Discovered in 1951 by Colette, who chose her to play her Gigi on Broadway, Audrey Hepburn immediately imposed her sparkling smile and her slender figure. From "Sabrina" in 1954 to "Diamants on the sofa" in 1961, her unequaled charm, between elegance, lightness and melancholy makes her an icon. This portrait proposed by Emmanuelle Franc lifts the veil on the cracks of the actress, which have shaped her incomparable style. From the abandonment of her father when she was only 6 years old to her forced renunciation of a dancing career, through her years of poverty and deprivation during the Second World War, which permanently damaged her health, the Audrey Hepburn's youth was marked by hardships.
