Behind The Scenes:
Hair and Makeup Test for Breakfast At Tiffany’s
Audrey Hepburn on the set of Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1960
When Audrey realized photographer Shaw was just trying to accomplish in his field what she was trying to do as an artist in hers, she forgot about LIFE’s cameras watching her closely day after day. Shaw developed prints of Audrey after each session, spending his nights studying them for typical Audrey mannerisms, gestures and expressions. The series of Audrey talking on the phone - one of which ended up on the magazine’s cover - was taken when her agent called her at home. Mark’s diligence paid off: the photos truly capture Audrey’s personatily and, by the end of the shoot, she was treating him like a member of the family.

This week one of my favorite artists, Victoria Ying, started a #7DaysOfColor Challenge over @instagram.
Every day of the week is assigned one of the colors of the rainbow. The objective of the challenge is to upload a drawing every day using the color of the day as subject matter. To spice things up for myself I made the week ”Audrey Hepburn Week” using her different dresses as inspiration!
Here is the set! enjoy~
