From the cover: “Distinguished Hollywood photographer Bob Willoughby took iconic photos of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and Jane Fonda, but remains unequivocal about his favorite subject: Audrey Hepburn. Willoughby was called in to shoot the new starlet one morning in 1953 — a humdrum commission for the portraitist often credited with having perfected the photojournalistic movie still — but when he met the Belgian-born beauty, Willoughby was enraptured. She took my hand like… well a princess, and dazzled me with that smile that God designed to melt mortal men’s hearts. As Hepburn’s career soared, Willoughby became a trusted friend, framing her working and home life. His historic, perfectionist studies comprise one of photography’s great platonic love affairs and an unrivalled record of one of the 20th century’s touchstone beauties.”
