Have you heard of Emma Ferrer? She's the cover star of Harper's Bazaar's September subscribers' issue - and she's Audrey Hepburn's granddaughter.

Emma Kathleen Hepburn Ferrer, a 20-year-old art student, pays tribute to her iconic grandmother in a series of stunning outfits by Lanvin, Carolina Herrera and Ralph Lauren.

She was photographed for the shoot by Michael Avedon - the grandson of portrait photographer Richard Avedon who was inspired by Hepburn throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

In her interview with the magazine Emma talks fond childhood memories, her favourite Hepburn films and heirlooms.

"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," she said.

On those classic film roles Emma says:

"As a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family. I can live with her through my father. His stories are all about his growing up.

"But honestly, I haven't seen all of her movies. When I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's, I enjoyed it the same way any young girl would. I've seen My Fair Lady and Roman Holiday, but I suppose my favourite is Funny Face."

As for her grandmother's beautiful wardrobe pieces, Emma cherishes Audrey's cosy knitwear.

"All I can think of are her cashmere turtlenecks, which I adore and wear all throughout the winter," she says.

"And a white antique stuffed teddy bear."
