"Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's" -- a new book!

There's yet another new picture book coming out on Audrey! This one, called Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's: Photographs by Howell Conant, features pictures of Audrey onset for publicity photos and candid pictures during filming of her most iconic film, Breakfast at Tiffany's. The description on, which has the most information I can find yet, says that there are also fashion shoots, but it's unclear if they are Tiffany's related or not. All photos in the book were taken by Conant, who was also a good friend of Grace Kelly's, and there is some text written by actress Leslie Caron (who was often referred to as "The Other Audrey Hepburn"). And here is the release information for various countries -- at least as much as I could find at this time:
U.S. and Canada: May 2007
UK: ?

Germany: February 2007
France: ?

Japan: February 2007

The book is 80 pages long, with 40 colour and duotone plates. Ooh, I can't wait!

Next, with all the buzz around the Golden Globes and upcoming Oscar nominations, everyone is gravitating towards red carpet talk. A new list has come out naming the top 7 Icons That Have Shaped Red Carpet Jewelry, and Audrey came in #2! She was noted for her understated tastes and simple jewelry, while contemporary Elizabeth Taylor came in at #1 with her more flashy, diamond-oriented tastes. To read the full list, click here.

Last up for today, there's a few more Audrey Hepburn film screenings to mention. San Jose's California Theatre, which screened Breakfast at Tiffany's last weekend, will be showing My Fair Lady this coming weekend. You can find all screentimes and dates here, as well as ticket information. The Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, which screened Funny Face earlier this month, will be showing Charade on Sunday, January 21st. Ticket information can be found here.
