Audrey Hepburn's granddaughter covers Harper's Bazaar this month in a touching and stylish tribute.
Emma Ferrer, the 20-year-old daughter of Hepburn's son Sean, channels her iconic grandmother on the magazine's two September issue subscriber covers. (The newsstand covers feature Penelope Cruz, Linda Evangelista, and Lady Gaga.) The shoot was photographed by Michael Avedon, grandson of noted fashion photographer Richard Avedon, with whom Hepburn had a legendary relationship.
In the first image, Ferrer wears a beautiful black and white gown from Lanvin's resort 2015 collection, and in the second, a grey ostrich number from Ralph Lauren.
Ferrer, currently an art student at the Florence Academy of Art, opened up to the magazine about her status as granddaughter to the star, who died before she was born:
"I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline -- I believe this was before I understood that she was famous," she said. "But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had … As a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family."
Asked whether she had any of her grandmother's possessions, Ferrer replied:
"All I can think of are her cashmere turtlenecks, which I adore and wear all throughout the winter. And a white antique stuffed teddy bear."
