   As anticipated as the Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Issue,  folks of a certain demographic are eagerly awaiting Vanity Fair’s tribute to the Golden Age of Cinema on their cover. Debuting in May, they will feature a colorized photo of the iconic Audrey Hepburn; and it promises to be a sought-after collectible.

   The publishers have selected a humdinger of a shot from the collection of Bud Fraker, the same photographer behind those iconic Breakfast at Tiffany‘s portraits. Fraker was the head of Columbia’s publicity department in the late 1930s, and the director of Paramount Studios’ still photography department from the 1940s. One of his favorite subjects was Grace Kelly. He also created postwar looks for Barbara Stanwyck, Montgomery Clift, Lizabeth Scott, Betty Hutton, William Holden, Sophia Loren, Jane Russell, Marlon Brando (among others).

   In a featured article, her son Luca Dotti talks personally about his mother, sharing seldom-told and insightful anecdotes ( also discussed in his new book set for release later this year). Among the topics… Hepburn’s frank views about her real appearance, her candid thoughts about aging gracefully, and the reasons why she had a vast scarf collection.

   After all these years, Audrey Hepburn still epitomizes elegance and class.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
