Audrey Hepburn Pictures: Rare Photos Of The Stunning Star (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

It's easy to associate Audrey Hepburn with nothing more than a demure up-do and an absurdly long cigarette holder, but fans of the actress know she lived a varied life. Before she ever assisted impoverished countries or charmed audiences with her "funny face," she was a young, aspiring ballerina growing up in Nazi-occupied Holland.

Hepburn's acting debut occurred after she was spotted by author Collette, and cast as the star of the author's story (in the Broadway play), "Gigi." But she was known for more than her acting, which won her a plethora of awards, including an Academy Award for Best Actress for "Roman Holiday."

Often donning the French brand Givenchy, she was, and still is, often lauded for her stand-out attire.

So forget the tiny, tiara-wearing girl loitering outside of Tiffany's at the break of dawn, and check out these less iconic images of the actress, from "Audrey Hepburn: A Charmed Life" (Skyhorse, $24.95):
