The granddaughter of Hollywood legend Audrey Hepburn has made her modelling debut on the cover of high fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar.

Emma Ferrer, 20, was hand-picked to appear as the cover girl for the style publication's September (14) subscriber edition, in which she imitates a number of her famous grandmother's iconic poses.

She also channels Hepburn's Beatnik look from her 1957 cult classic Funny Face for one shot, donning a black turtleneck with matching pants and loafers.

In the accompanying interview, Ferrer, an art student in Florence, Italy, reveals, "The first images I have of her are, interestingly enough, when she was quite young. I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline - I believe this was before I understood that she was famous. But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had."

However, Ferrer admits she is not planning to make a full-time career out of her modelling.

She tells, "I have lots of plans for myself. I don't see myself entirely devoted to a life as a model. I think it would be an amazing accompaniment to what it is I want to do."

The images for Harper's Bazaar were all shot by Michael Avedon, whose grandfather, celebrated fashion photographer Richard Avedon, famously shot Hepburn in her heyday.

Ferrer's father is Sean Ferrer, Hepburn's only son with her first husband, actor/director Mel Ferrer.

Hepburn died from cancer in 1993.
