Gorgeous!

Audrey has been the standard against which I measure all female beauty since I saw her in "Sabrina" when I was a kid.

I'm curious.

Dave, do you have any information about the type of film / camera Mr. Theisen used to make these pictures? I'm impressed with the rich contrast of light and shadow and the texture of the grain. Would this be a picture taken on medium format film, say, 6x9? Thanks!

[The film is 56mm, or about 2¼ inches square. Adjusted for contrast in Photoshop using the Shadows & Highlights filter. - Dave]

Never took a bad picture

Audrey Hepburn was one of those rare people, like Marilyn Monroe and Kim Basinger, who never, ever took a bad photo. The camera loved her. (And as an aside, it's nice to see that she ate now and then.)

Cuisine

I expect there are some really nice Mexican restaurants in Mexico City!

Elegant.

Looking at the steel bracelets on her shirt cuffs.
