  • Audrey Hepburn is an international icon.

  • One of the most celebrated actresses of all time, Hepburn was also a humanitarian who

  • was known for her generous spirit.

  • While she passed away in 1993, her legacy lives on today especially through her granddaughter,

  • Emma Kathleen Hepburn Ferrer.

  • Ferrer's modeling career caught fire in 2014, when she covered the September issue for Harper's

  • Bazaar which had the starlet signing a modeling contract just months later.

  • So what's she up to now?

  • Here's how Hepburn's granddaughter is carrying on the family legacy.

  • Missed connections

  • Ferrer might have a prestigious pedigree, but she never met her famous grandmother.

  • Audrey Hepburn passed away the year before Ferrer was born, so like many fans, Ferrer

  • has gotten to know the star through the legacy she left behind.

  • But the model didn't always know she was the granddaughter of an icon, telling Bazaar,

  • "The first time I saw her was a photograph where she's jumping on a trampoline.

  • I didn't understand that she was the person that she is, at the time"

  • But even then, Ferrer connected with her, saying,

  • "I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had."

  • Doing it on her own

  • Even after she started modeling in 2014, Ferrer took a few years to establish an identity

  • of her own apart from her famous grandmother.

  • She told Who What Wear in 2018,

  • "I didn't want to be associated with her, and I really wanted to prove myself for who

  • I was and have my own identity.

  • [...] I really had this fear that everything was happening because of who my grandmother

  • was."

  • But Ferrer still found a way to connect with her famous kin.

  • She revealed she and her father are working on a book about their grandmother and mother,

  • Audrey, telling the site,

  • "The most surprising and inspiring thing to learn was that she totally defied the paradigms

  • of beauty for her time.

  • I think that's a powerful message of individualism and self-emancipation for all young women

  • and men around the world."

  • Her creative side

  • While Ferrer's focus has been on modeling, she may be following in her grandmother's

  • footsteps in the near future.

  • She's already appeared in 2017's indie thriller, The Man in the Attic, and has said she is

  • open to doing more acting in the future.

  • Ferrer has always been artistic, but spent years avoiding the stage and screen, telling

  • Who What Wear,

  • "I've always been interested in acting, but I kind of had written it off, funnily enough,

  • because of who my grandmother was."

  • Giving back

  • Hepburn may be a beloved film star, but her greatest contributions reached far beyond

  • the screen.

  • Hepburn worked with UNICEF and was appointed a Goodwill Ambassador in 1989.

  • In 1992, she received the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom for her work.

  • Like Hepburn, Ferrer also worked with UNICEF in 2014, telling My Central Jersey,

  • "I was never taught to do charity work.

  • It was ingrained in me, always a part of my life."

  • Finding herself

  • Generations of people have grown up, trying to imitate Audrey Hepburn's timeless style,

  • but Ferrer isn't here to tell people how to dress.

  • Instead, like her grandmother, she is all about expressing individuality, telling People,

  • "When people ask 'What do I wear?'

  • I think the whole point, is 'What do I like?'

  • You've got to figure it out for yourself if you want to be happy."

  • Hepburn famously refused to ever have plastic surgery, or even a little Photoshop.

  • Ferrer said of her grandmother,

  • "For her, wrinkles were symbols of age, experience and wisdom."

  • And that's one legacy worth passing on.
