The name Emma Ferrer might not immediately ring a bell, but surely you’re familiar with her world-famous grandmother whose acting prowess, timeless style, and doll-like features have cemented her title as a Hollywood icon. Yes, we’re talking about Audrey Hepburn! We all know about the sterling legacy she left us with via her classic films (Breakfast at Tiffany’s, anyone?) and words of wisdom (which we all love to quote repeatedly in our Instagram captions), but the real cherry on top is in fact her granddaughter who’s just as fair a lady as Audrey herself.

She’s the daughter of Sean Hepburn Ferrer, who was Audrey’s son from her first marriage with American actor Mel Ferrer, and was born in a small town in Switzerland where Audrey spent the last years of her life. Emma was 20 years old when she appeared on the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar, which also launched her modelling career. Before then, she was just a college student, practically a stranger in the public eye. Clearly, that’s not the case anymore.
Last time we spotted Emma doing a modelling gig, she graced a fashion editorial for Yahoo Style. She appeared in a series of photographs that was a bit more her than her grandmother. As uncanny as their resemblance may be, she proved that she’s still, after all, her own person.

She's got those piercing eyes, too!
Shortly after, Emma landed a modelling contract with Storm Model Management, the same agency handling supermodels Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne.
We’re excited to see what’s more in store for this brunette beauty. Aww, Audrey would be proud!
