How did they find an actress who looks so much like Audrey Hepburn? Side-by-side, it's remarkable.
Actually, two different actresses played the role and neither bore an exact resemblance to the film icon.
So how did they do it? CGI. Here's HepburnTM, the digitized version that was created using the above actresses as doubles.
At first I wasn't sure how to feel about this. If we can create actresses by computer, why do we need real actresses?
But a lot of work goes into these. Besides, real actresses/models were needed, along with quite a few talented artists.
Audrey isn't the first legend to be recreated for a commercial. There's the well-known Dior commercial from a couple of years ago starring a recreated Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich, and Marilyn Monroe alongside a (still alive) Charlize Theron.
How do you feel about bringing Hollywood legends back to life using modern technology?
