Audrey Hepburn's granddaughter makes modeling debut

Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn's granddaughter Emma Ferrer has Old Hollywood blood coursing through her veins, and it certainly shows in a new magazine spread. The 20-year-old, who has remained out of the spotlight until now, stars in two versions of Harper's Bazaar's latest cover, striking a pose in a Lanvin gown with fitted black sleeves top and a loose-fitting skirt that call to mind her iconic grandmother's timeless style.

In one shot, the brunette, whose father is Hepburn's oldest child Sean, 54, could easily be mistaken for the late Hollywood star, her hair pulled back in a chic chignon and her earrings highlighting her defined bone structure.

In another photo, Emma channels her grandmother's elegant poise in a black and white jacket, matching fur stole and wide-brimmed hat, her arched eyebrows bringing out her deep brown eyes. Yet another photo sees her striking a dancer's pose in black trousers and a black turtleneck - one of the pieces of clothing most strongly associated with Hepburn.

And the family resemblance is certainly evident in the magazine spread, which was shot by Michael Avedon, grandson of legendary photographer Richard Avedon, for whom Hepburn was a longtime muse.

While Hepburn passed away in 1993, a year before Emma was born, there's no denying that her legacy lives on within Emma. The associations between her and Hepburn are unavoidable, and it's something she is slowly coming to terms with. “Sometimes when I was younger, I felt confused toward what having a grandmother like her could mean in my life. But I am now understanding,” she says.
