This Audrey Hepburn Exhibition Is Like Pinterest in Real Life

National Portrait Gallery, London (July 2 through October 18)
Audrey Hepburn is, perhaps, one of the most recognizable people in the world — her likeness incessantly plastered on college-dorm walls, Pinterest, and Tumblr, a fulfillment of the Andy Warhol commodity prophecy. Yet, despite this debatable pop culture saturation, Hepburn remains a beloved figure, and the new exhibit “Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon,” only further encapsulates this rare adoration. Featuring many rarely seen images, including works by famed photographers such as Richard Avedon and Irving Penn, the exhibit will chart Hepburn’s early life in London, to the pinnacle of her international stardom, to her later philanthropic work.
