Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter Emma Ferrer emulates her grandmother's signature style and grace in her modeling debut for Harper’s Bazaar.

Emma Ferrer On Audrey Hepburn

Ferrer, 20, poses and is styled in ensembles that are reminiscent of those Hepburn was known for during her years as a fashion icon. Though Ferrer never met her famous grandmother, through photographs and stories she feels as though she’s developed a deep kinship with her.

“I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline — I believe this was before I understood that she was famous," Ferrer told Harper’s Bazaar. "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."

As Ferrer grew older, she began to understand her grandmother’s notoriety and legendary status in Hollywood by watching her famous feature films. "When I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's, I enjoyed it the same way any young girl would,” Ferrer admitted. “I've seen My Fair Lady and Roman Holiday, but I suppose my favorite is Funny Face."

Ferrer, descended from Hepburn through the former movie star’s first marriage to Mel Ferrer, feels like she’s just now coming to realize the impact of having a grandmother such as Hepburn. "Sometimes when I was younger, I felt confused toward what having a grandmother like her could mean in my life," Ferrer revealed. "But I am now understanding."

Ferrer is currently enrolled as a student at the Florence Academy of Art.
