Audrey netted an Oscar for this 1953 movie, which was also her very first Hollywood role – a princess who plays truant on an official visit to Rome.
One of her most famous and timeless roles, Hepburn played a chauffeur’s daughter in this 1954 flick alongside love interests William Holden and Humphrey Bogart.
Audrey unveiled her dancing talents in this 1956 classic.
Love in the Afternoon
Audrey plays a private detective’s daughter who charms an ageing playboy (Gary Cooper) in this 1957 movie, unaware that her father has other plans. Director Billy Wilder admitted he knew no other leading lady would do and waited for Hepburn to be available.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Audrey took on the now-legendary role of Holly Golightly back in 1961, earning an Oscar nod along the way.
The Children’s Hour
Another 1961 film, The Children's Hour (later renamed The Loudest Whisper) was an adaptation of Lillian Hellman’s 1936 play about a troublemaking student at a girls’s school who accuses two teachers of being lesbians. Audrey starred alongside Shirley MacLaine.
Back in 1963, Audrey starred in this romantic caper set in Paris alongside the swoonsome Cary Grant.
My Fair Lady
Audrey bagged this 1964 role over the expected Julie Andrews, but Eliza Doolittle's famous singing was dubbed - it’s actually Marnie Nixon’s voice on the soundtrack.
Paris When it Sizzles
1964 was a busy year for Audrey. As well starring in My Fair Lady, Audrey played secretary to William Holden’s writer in Paris When it Sizzles. She was joined by a cameo from her then husband, Mel Ferrer.
How to Steal a Million
Another caper movie, How to Steal a Million (1966) saw Audrey and co-star Peter O’Toole plot the burglary of a Parisian museum. Aside from anything else, it’s worth watching for Audrey’s jaw-dropping sixties wardrobe.
