The good genes certainly stayed in the family.
Emma Ferrer’s name may be brand new to the modeling industry, but her porcelain skin, raven black hair and ethereal grace on the cover of the new subscriber issue of Harper’s Bazaar is a flashback in time.
Ferrer's grandmother is none other than Audrey Hepburn, and the slim, long limbed, graceful, 20-year-old art student is the spitting image of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star.
Currently in her third year of studies at the Florence Academy of Art, the captivating brunette is the daughter of Sean Ferrer, who is the son of Mel Ferrer, Hepburn's first husband.
Emma wasn’t even born until a year after Hepburn died—of appendiceal cancer in 1993—so she never met the movie icon whom she so closely resembles.
"The first images I have of her are, interestingly enough, when she was quite young," Emma Kathleen Hepburn Ferrer says of her paternal grandmother in the accompanying interview with Harpers.
"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."
Along with being a screen goddess in classics such as Roman Holiday and a style icon for a generation, Hepburn was a crusader for the world's underprivileged children as an International Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, traveling to Ethiopia, Somalia and Turkey.
She was also a muse for photographer Richard Avedon, who shot her for numerous Harper’s covers and on the streets of Paris, so it is fitting that Ferrer was captured by his grandson, Michael Avedon, for her own cover.
When asked if she owns any memorabilia from her famous grandmother, Ferrer shared, “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."
