"No need to introduce this lady, who seems to have been the definition of 'classy' both on and off the screen, as seen in this picture. I discovered recently 'Ariane' (also called 'Love in the Afternoon') in which she plays a young cello student. It took me a few minutes at the start of the movie to figure out she was practicing a Haydn symphony solo that I had played at Tanglewood last summer!" -Blaise

Few photos capture Audrey Hepburn's Eliza Doolittle character so decisively as Cecil Beaton's now iconic image, shot in 1963. Hepburn's instantly recognizable black and white-bowed outfit with sweeping, feathered white hat - as worn to the races in the My Fair Lady Film - is one of his most memorable creations. Undoubtedly one of the most famous images of the actress, Beaton celebrated her “purity and integrity,” and her “enormous understanding, tact and . . . willingness to learn” which he hymned throughout “Cecil Beaton’s ‘Fair Lady’ “ (1964), the published diary of his time in Hollywood designing sets and costumes for the film version of the Lerner and Loewe musical.
