Through Fashionable Paris in the steps of Audrey Hepburn
Wed 6 Nov 2013
This was the site of the first meeting between the young Audrey Hepburn and Hubert de Givenchy in 1954. Audrey was about to film Sabrina. Audrey and Givenchy hit it off from this first meeting, and the rest is history.
3, avenue de Matignon, is the supposed location of the room where William Holden is searching for inspiration in Paris When It Sizzles.
Cross the road and enter the park. The gardens between the Champs-Elysées and the avenue Gabriel feature in both Charade (5. the Stamp Market, which is crucial to the plot, is located here on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and holidays) and How to Steal a Million (Audrey and Peter O’Toole plot the big heist sitting on a bench here).
