Original 10"x8" studio photograph.

Hepburn is wearing the opera scene point d'esprit ball gown created by Givenchy, the designer with whom she forged an enduring and style-defining partnership.

She was always busy in those days but still she thought if it. Fame did not change her a whit—she was the most unselfish person you can imagine".
