Audrey Hepburn Exhibit Review

A few weeks ago (which feels like forever ago) I got to attend the National Portrait Gallery's Audrey Hepburn exhibit. Since watching her classic films, like Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany's, I've fallen in love with Audrey Hepburn. She is such a classic beauty and an amazing fashion inspiration and icon. So, when I saw that there was an exhibit on her I knew I had to go. 

The exhibit digs deep into Hepburn's history and uncovers things I never knew about her. There is more to her then just her movie roles and classic Hollywood style. I loved learning about her days as a ballerina and also her time as a humanitarian. The exhibit examines all aspects of her life through the portraits and photographs of her. 

My personal favorites include the still life shots from her films and the gorgeous portrait of her next to a wall of pink flowers. The exhibit takes you through her life in chronological order which makes it easy to understand and process. Sometimes museums can be so overwhelming that it gets to be too much. But, I think this exhibit was organized well and was entertaining. Another highlight of the exhibit was a huge wall of all of her magazine covers throughout her career. 

The only down side of this exhibit that it was PACKED and there were no photographs allowed. So, sometimes it wasn't pleasant when people were running into you or taking 20 years to read the small card of information next to a photograph. But, nonetheless, this exhibit is perfect for any Hepburn fan!
