Audrey Hepburn Wedding: Her First Engagement

Audrey Hepburn Wedding gown

Audrey Hepburn first got engaged to a man called James Hanson.

She had a wedding gown designed by the famous Fontana Sisters.

She called off her wedding when she was in Italy filming "Roman Holiday" and felt that the demands of their careers would keep them apart most of the time."

The Fontana sisters, Micol and Giovanna founded their business in Rome in 1944. they were renowned for their highly romantic ball and bridal gowns.

The dress was already made when she decided to call the wedding off, so she gave the dress away to Amabile Altobella.

Amabile Altobella was a young girl from the town of Latina, Italy. Audrey had asked the Fontana Sisters to give the dress away, saying "I want my dress to be worn by another girl for her wedding, perhaps someone who couldn't ever afford a dress like mine, the most beautiful, poor Italian girl you can find."
