Sale price


Regular price £40.00

Inspired by the photograph of Audrey Hepburn in costume for 'The Secret People' by Bassano Ltd; from the National Portrait Gallery collection, this scarf was designed exclusively for the NPG by Amet & Ladoue.

The Belgian-born actress trained in ballet in Amsterdam and made her London stage debut in 1948 in the chorus for High Button Shoes. On Colette's recommendation she made her first appearance on Broadway in Gigi in 1951. She played small parts in English films before Hollywood stardom made her chic, gamine style a byword for fashion in the 1950s. Her grace, charm and pencil-slim looks made her famous in films such as Roman Holiday (1953, for which she won an Academy Award), Funny Face (1957), The Nun's Story (1959), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) and My Fair Lady (1964).

Royal Mail and our other regular global couriers have stopped asking for signatures when delivering parcels to customers. In cases where a parcel does not fit through a letterbox, the courier will leave the item at the door, and will step aside after knocking to ensure there is a safe distance while you retrieve your parcel.

In addition, some couriers are experiencing delays at this time. We would be grateful if you could have patience with us during this challenging time.
