The 20-year-old woman, who bears some resemblance to her grandmother, makes her modeling debut in her first ever magazine photo shoot.
Audrey Hepburn's granddaughter, Emma Ferrer, makes her modeling debut by posing for the cover of Harper's Bazaar magazine's September issue. For her first ever magazine photo shoot, Emma is photographed by Michael Avedon, a grandson of Audrey's photographer Richard Avedon.
In an interview with the magazine, Emma says of her grandmother, "The first images I have of her are, interestingly enough, when she was quite young. I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline-I believe this was before I understood that she was famous. But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had."
She additionaly says, "I've been questioning a lot lately what she means to me. I knew her image, of course, and that I happened to be, by pure chance, related to her. But as a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family."
Emma is a daughter of Sean Ferrer, Audrey's son from her marriage with first husband Mel Ferrer. Talking about Audrey's movies, Emma claims, "Honestly, I haven't seen all of her movies. When I watched 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', I enjoyed it the same way any young girl would. I've seen 'My Fair Lady' and 'Roman Holiday', but I suppose my favorite is 'Funny Face'."
When asked if she owns things that belonged to her grandmother, Emma says, "All I can think of are her cashmere turtlenecks, which I adore and wear all throughout the winter. And a white antique stuffed teddy bear."
