Relive Audrey Hepburn’s legacy as an icon.
Audrey Hepburn, the iconic Hollywood actress and humanitarian, continues to captivate the hearts of millions worldwide even after her passing. As a tribute to her extraordinary life and contributions to the world of cinema, an exhibit honoring Audrey Hepburn called Intimate Audrey, launched last August 1 in The Museum in S’Maison, Conrad Manila, Philippines.
This exhibit provides an opportunity for fans and admirers to delve into the life of this remarkable woman as an actress, a feminist, a daughter, a mother, and an icon, as Filipinos take part in celebrating her lasting legacy.
Exhibition tickets for Intimate Audrey is available via SM Tickets and at all SM Ticket offline locations, particularly in SM Stores and SM Cinemas. Tickets cost at a regular price of PHP850, and at PHP450 for senior citizens, PWDs, students, national athletes, and Medal of Valor awardees. The ticket grants one person full access to the exhibit for an hour and a half.
Intimate Audrey: What it is and How It Started
Sean Hepburn, Audrey’s son, started Intimate Audrey, which is the official traveling Audrey Hepburn exhibit. The exhibit is part of the celebration of his mother’s 90th birthday anniversary.
Intimate Audrey was first displayed in Hepburn’s birth town in Brussels, Belgium, and then displayed as a stint in Amsterdam.
The Intimate Audrey Exhibit showcases a collection of memorabilia, personal items, never before seen fashion sketches, photographs, and more. Through this visual journey, visitors will gain insights into Hepburn’s remarkable career, her legacy in the movie and fashion industry, and her impact on the world through her philanthropic work.
Some of the highlights of the exhibit are the props, photos, and the display of costumes worn by Hepburn in some of her most memorable films. Audrey Hepburn’s dresses are not just stunning garments that represent the fashion and elegance she was known for, but they also serve as a symbol of her trailblazing influence on style and the representation of women in cinema.
The Intimate Audrey Exhibit will be open to visitors until October 29 this year.

But this exhibit is not just a celebration of her glamorous Hollywood career, it also pays tribute to her remarkable humanitarian work. Hepburn’s dedication to various charitable causes are highlighted through interactive displays and personal anecdotes. Visitors will gain a deeper understanding of her selflessness and tireless efforts to improve the lives of the helpless and in need around the world.
Moreover, the exhibit recognizes how Audrey Hepburn continues to captivate audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Her image is not confined to a particular era but rather transcends time, making her a truly timeless star. This exhibition aims to celebrate this universal appeal and prove that the legacy she left behind still resonates strongly even today.
Hepburn and her Filipino Fans
The decision to bring this tribute exhibit to the Philippines holds significant meaning. Audrey Hepburn had also dedicated a considerable amount of her time and energy to humanitarian efforts in the country. Opening the exhibit in the Philippines allows fans to once again connect more closely with her life and legacy.
Intimate Audrey also features a Philippine-exclusive section called ‘AUDREY: A Homage from Filipino Fashion’. This highlights the designs of chosen Filipino fashion designers and how their designs are born out of inspiration of Hepburn’s legacy and work.
The importance of preserving the memory of icons like Audrey Hepburn cannot be overstated. Moreover, a tribute to an icon such as Hepburn’s serves as a reminder of the impact a person can have as he or she inspires others to follow a similar path of kindness and generosity that slowly changes the world.
