The Era of Quality Magazine
Quality becomes Quality
In 1957 Audrey Hepburn graced the first cover of Quality. The film Funny Face was not only a particularly valuable step on the red career carpet of the style icon Audrey Hepburn, it also made Quality magazine world-famous. Quality stood and still stands for progress, innovation, as well as for glamor and style. Numerous values defined for the magazine have the same relevance for the editorial team today as they did then and are particularly celebrated in the 60th anniversary year of the magazine. The motto “Think Pink” chosen in 1957 not only stood for the choice of an unusual color, but rather for the decision to think outside the box, to be different and to show profile.
Taking a different view of life and things is still a sign of a special quality. Perhaps you already suspected in 1957 that quality would never lose its value and that the term would survive the next 60 years with the same relevance. Funny Face should encourage women of their time to be true to themselves - to show their faces. Audrey was the perfect QUALITY FACE for this role. She knew how to combine naturalness with glamor, quality and timelessness with flying colors. Yesterday as now, she is the epitome of timeless beauty. It doesn't matter whether we are in 1957 or 2017.
