Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter Emma Ferrer steps into the spotlight on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

The 20-year-old strikes a pose for two versions of the glossy cover, which seem to be fittingly inspired by the golden age of Hollywood glamour.

Though Ferrer never actually met her famous paternal grandmother – her father Sean is Audrey’s eldest son – she has certainly inherited the Oscar winners striking looks and bone structure.

In one of the shots, the aspiring artist, who lives in Florence, Italy, delicately poses in a Lanvin gown with her hair swept back into a sleek chignon. She could easily be mistaken for the modern day version of Hepburn.

Ferrer tells the magazine that even before she knew about the Old Hollywood blood coursing through her veins she had a childhood fascination with the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star.

“The first images I have of her are, interestingly enough, when she was quite young,” Emma told Harper’s Bazaar. “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.”

Another familial element of the fall fashion feature was that Ferrer was snapped by Michael Avedon, the grandson of iconic photographer Richard Avedon.

Audrey was a muse for the legendary photographer and their collaborations played out over many years in the ’50s in the pages of Harper’s Bazaar.
