The late Audrey Kathleen Ruston, the British actress whose delicate looks made her a legend of Hollywood's Golden Age, had three grandchildren, and one of them has grown up to look a lot like her.

Emma Kathleen Ferrer is a gorgeous woman who has already appeared on fashion magazine photo spreads and a feature film; not only does she look like her grandmother but also shares her passion for noble humanitarian causes such as supporting the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund.

Although there are some people who believe that Hepburn's looks were a little mousy at a time when Hollywood clamored for sultry actresses, the fact remains that she was one of the most photogenic women ever to be captured on film. Hepburn exuded class and sophistication, and she knew exactly how to inject depth to the "damsel in distress" film trope.

While Hepburn was a petite woman, Emma is a bit more voluptuous, but the resemblance is certainly there. Thanks to Instagram and other social networks, we can see why the camera simply loves Emma; she even prefers shorter hairstyles that accentuate her symmetrical and aesthetic facial features.

Here's something interesting about Emma: In 2014, when she posed for a photo spread published in Harper's Bazaar magazine, the photographer happened to be Richard Avedon's grandson. In case you are not familiar with Avedon's work, he was one of the most renowned fashion photographers in history, and his work with Hepburn is legendary.

Avedon used to say that taking photographs of Hepburn felt like a beginner painter who suddenly starts producing masterpieces that would rival the work of Leonardo Da Vinci.

Emma's involvement with UNICEF dates back to 2018; this is the UN agency that her grandmother worked very closely from the mid-1950s until she passed away in 1993. For Hepburn, nothing was more important than doing something to improve the socioeconomic conditions of vulnerable families around the world, especially those with young children.

When she was a little girl growing up during World War II, Hepburn was separated from her father and moved with her mother to the Netherlands; she remembered the international aid she receive during the Nazi occupation of Arnhem, thus explaining her interest in UNICEF.

How much does Emma look like her grandmother? Spread her photos around and discuss; in the end, what really matters is that she is working with UNICEF just like Hepburn did for many decades. We can safely say that Emma is a beautiful woman for more than just her looks.
