Magic Johnson's son EJ enjoys Hollywood lunch with friend

By Sara Nathan for MailOnline Published: 19:02, 14 August 2014 | Updated: 09:12, 15 August 2014 126View commentsEffortlessly re-creating Audrey Hepburn's iconic poses, Emma Ferrer has made her debut on the cover of fashion bible Harper's Bazaar with her grandmother's typical grace in pictures that have made a splash around the world.Until now she has lived a life of relative obscurity, but next month Emma will be launched in New York society when she comes to Manhattan to publicize the September issue, MailOnline has learned.However, at the age of 20 - just four years younger than Hepburn when she won the role in Roman Holiday that would make her a household name - the daughter of Hepburn's oldest son Sean Ferrer, has no dreams of following in the footsteps of the grandmother she sadly never got to meet.Scroll down for videoIt's in the genes: Emma Ferrer, 22, graces the front page of fashion bible Harper's Bazaar. The granddaughter of Hollywood legend Audrey Hepburn, now studying art in Florence is moving to the US and will undoubtedly be the toast of Manhattan Old Hollywood reincarnated: Audrey Hepburn's granddaughter Emma Ferrer, 20, makes her debut in the spotlight on two versions of the latest cover of Harper's BazaarNatural beauty: Although Emma Ferrer never met her grandmother, she owns - and wears - her cashmere turtleneck sweaters in winter and cares for her teddy bear Although just like her grandmother, Emma was forced to give up ballet because she grew too tall (in spite of her delicate appearance, Hepburn was 5ft 10ins, according to her son Sean), she harbors no ambitions of acting - and is instead about to enter her third year at the Florence Academy of Art,.It was there that she met her boyfriend, Richard Greathouse, a dashing 27-year-old artist who hails from Nashville, Tennessee.The couple met when Richard taught some of Emma's anatomical sculpture classes and romance flourished after term ended earlier this year. Now they plan to move from Italy to the US to open an outpost of the prestigious school in New Jersey.Today, Richard's older brother William, who lives in Tennessee, told MailOnline: 'Richard told us a week or so ago that he was dating Emma, it's still pretty new.'Asked if he knew about Emma's Hollywood heritage, William said: 'Yes, that is what I have been told! Richard's so talented and we're very proud of him.'Speaking about Richard, Emma, who is currently on vacation in Spain, so has yet to fully understand the overwhelming excitement her cover has caused, tells Harpers: 'He taught anatomical sculpture as well as drawing and painting.'We were friends for a while before anything happened between us.'Born in Switzerland, and raised in Los Angeles and Florence, Emma is just as much a globetrotter as her grandmother was. But still, the opportunity to pose for Harpers in pictures taken by Michael Avedeon, the grandson of photographer Richard Avedon, one of Hepburn's most frequent collaborators, came as somewhat of a shock to Emma.The idea was the brainchild of Harper's legendary British editor Glenda Bailey.And as Emma tells Women's Wear Daily: 'Initially, I wasn’t sure. Glenda contacted my father with the idea and explained that Michael Avedon would be the photographer. So understanding that there was this parallel narrative, I was able to approach it as this very meaningful experience.Meanwhile, writing in her Editor's Letter for the September issue - the most important fashion magazine issue of the year  - Glenda explains her thought process, saying: 'When I think of icons, Audrey Hepburn is one of the first women who springs to mind.'The extraordinary screen and style star is a longtime favourite of mine - though, in truth, I don't know a single person who doesn't love her - which made it such a treat to photograph her beautiful granddaughter Emma Ferrer for this issue in her first-ever shoot.'In a moment of exquisite symmetry, the photographer was none other than Michael Avedon, Richard's grandson. Dick worked closely with Bazaar for many years and Audrey was among his favourite muses. so it seems fitting that their talented grandchildren come together in the magazine.'Audrey and Dick would have been proud. Though he clearly has his own eye, Michael certainly inherited his grandfather's creative genes, while Emma, an artist, inherited her grandmother's grace (and looks) - though, also like Audrey, Emma was forced to give up ballet because she was too tall.'From the Grand Ol Opry to the Old Masters: Talented artist Richard Greathouse, who hails from Nashville, TN, is dating Emma Ferrer after the pair met when he taught at the Florence Academy of Art Close: Sean Ferrer told how his mother Audrey Hepburn gave up her career to be a full-time mom to him. The pair are seen in 1982 With a nursery fashioned from her grandmother's old dressing room at the Swiss retreat Hepburn made home in later years, Emma told MailOnline today: 'I was born in Switzerland and lived there for the first three years of my life. I then moved to Los Angeles, and have now been living in Florence for the last six years.'Born in Morges, Emma's parents, Sean and his second wife Leila Ferrer, then moved to La Paisible, the Hepburn family's country house in the Swiss village of Tolochenaz, near Lausanne, where in her later life Audrey lived with - though never married - the Dutch-born investor and former actor Robert Wolders. Having never met their grandmother, Sean revealed how Hepburn, who died in January 1993 from appendiceal cancer, had written notes to her future grandchildren. Speaking to Italian newspaper La Stampa, Sean, who also has two young sons, Gregorio Ferrer and Santiago Ferrer, from his third marriage to Giovanna Gregori Ferrer, revealed: 'When she knew she was going to die 'granny jetset' wrote letters to her grandchildren who she would never meet in person.  'It wasn't easy for me to accept but I understood the important thing is not what you say but how you say it. Then you can say what you really mean.'When Emma was still tiny, Sean and Leila relocated with her to Los Angeles, where she was enrolled at Crossroads, the private arts school which counts Kate Hudson, Jack Black, Zooey Deschanel, and Seth Rogen as past pupils.As she told Harpers: 'Growing up there felt entirely normal, since I was only a child,' although she admitted that had she stayed in LA she may have become a 'Hollywood brat', saying: 'I know kids who had to go into rehab.'It's only now that I realize certain elements of a Hollywood lifestyle are, in fact, not entirely healthy.'Doting: Audrey Hepburn had her son Sean Ferrer with her first marriage to Mel Ferrer. The mother and son are pictured at the Sistina Theater in Rome around 1970Proud parents: Leila Ferrer and Sean Ferrer are extremely proud of the daughter as she steps into the spotlight from a life of relative obscurity and an upbringing in Los Angeles and ItalySean and Leila divorced when Emma was six,  and at 14 she moved with her mother to Florence, as the magazine points out, mostly so Emma could be closer to Sean, who had settled in the Tuscan countryside.Earlier this year, Leila moved back to Beverly Hills, while Sean - who recently wed Karin Hofer - continues to split his time between Italy and LA.Talking about her future move to America, planned for January, Emma said she was excited to continue her studies overseas, but confessed: 'I have mixed feelings about leaving Florence.'I worry about finding the kind of organic food I like to eat and wonder where I will live. At the same time I am so excited about being in New York.'Asked if she owns anything of her grandmother's, Emma replies: 'All I can think of are her cashmere turtlenecks, which I adore and wear all throughout the winter. And a white antique stuffed teddy bear.'Former Town & Country Editor-in-Chief Pamela Fiori, who conducted the interview with Emma, tells MailOnline that the young woman she met was 'such a natural' in front of the cameras, 'unbeknown to her'.She was approached to write the feature after writing a piece about Audrey and Dick Avedon by Glenda Bailey, and says: 'She wanted to do a replica of the piece and I thought it was a very clever idea.' Spitting image: In one photo from the spread, which was shot by Richard Avedon's grandson Michael, she strikes a pose in a fitted Lanvin gown that calls to mind her iconic relative's timeless style Lanvin Resort 2015 Black And White DressNot available to buyShe’s Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter, so it can go without saying that Emma Ferrer would be mad about monochrome.The aspiring model makes an uncanny resemblance to her grandmother for her cover debut, who to this day is viewed as one of the biggest style icons to grace the earth. Now that’s a lot to live up to.Emma, however, held her own as she graced glossy magazine Harper’s Bazaar's September issue in a show-stopping black and white gown featuring a satin skirt and red floral waist embellishment from Lanvin’s fresh Resort 2015 collection. Accompanying the long-sleeved gown with a very Audrey-esque elegant stance, Emma rightly styled the statement number with a sophisticated updo and sophisticated diamond earrings. We wonder if they’re from Tiffany’s…?Since Emma is technically dressing in the future with this yet-to-be-released gown, we can safely say that it is not available to buy. Weep. However, we’ve been inspired by Emma’s cover style so much we’ve come up with a few black and white dresses to choose from, including Miss Selfridge’s bodycon number at £39 which will show off your pins whilst remaining classy.

Naturally she was delighted that it all turned out so well. 'It just shows that the interest in Audrey has never gone away. And I thought the pictures were extraordinary.'She told how Emma will be coming to New York next month to publicize her Harpers issue, and 'also to get a little bit accustomed to the East Coast.' Despite Emma's vow that she does not want to become an actress, there may be a bit of modelling in Emma's future as she will undoubtedly be the toast of New York Fashion week next month.As Pamela says, 'She's a lovely, lovely woman and to everyone's pleasure, this has turned out so well that people are just responding left and right.'Having inherited Hepburn's graceful gait, Emma shows off her beauty in two Harpers covers.Her first look is in a stunning gray gown of Ostrich feathers for Ralph Lauren fall collection, the second features her showing off her enviable figure in a gown by Lanvin.Emma admits to WWD.com: 'Putting that dress on was intimidating. I really felt like I needed to make myself worthy of it, so that was difficult. I was very stiff at the beginning because I was nervous about getting the perfect shot, thinking everything needed to be pristine.'Polish and poise: Hepburn (pictured in 1957) is remembered for her classic sense of style and her humanitarianism as well as her movie performancesFlashback: Hepburn pictured in 1961 in a still from one of her most famous films, Breakfast at Tiffany's Memories: 'I knew her image, of course, and that I happened to be, by pure chance, related to her. But as a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family,' said Emma And of course, as WWD points out they would be 'remiss' if Emma had not posed in the quintessential Hepburn look: black turtleneck, black slacks and black flats, the essence of beatnik immortalized by her grandmother playing the modelling ingenue in Funny Face.Indeed, the photographer Fred Astaire plays in the 1957 classic is based, in part, upon Richard Avedon. Emma says: 'Michael put some music on and he started dancing and Joanna [Hillman, stylist director] started dancing. They were being silly and adding levity so I’d be more comfortable.'.Talking ahead of the inevitable attention that she will receive when she comes to the US, Emma says: 'I’m grateful that I grew into a young adult in Europe because now I speak three languages. I have a grasp on a quality of life that I like and I strive for, but I’m ready to move into a big city like New York now.And as for the future, she muses: 'Oh, well 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. I’m interested in being involved in the fashion world. But not completely.'Strong genes: While Hepburn passed away in 1993, a year before Emma was born, there's no denying that her legacy lives on within herMemorable wardrobe: Hepburn in 1956 in a scene from Funny Face wearing a black turtleneck - one of the pieces of clothing that is now most closely associated with her It is during the Harper's interview that Emma discuss what having such a famous grandmother has meant to her.'I've been questioning a lot lately what she means to me,' 'I knew her image, of course, and that I happened to be, by pure chance, related to her. But as a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family.' 'I can live with her through my father,' she says of her father Sean, whom Hepburn had with her first husband, actor and director Mel Ferrer. 'His stories are all about his growing up.'  Admitting that she has not actually watched all of her movies, Emma adds that one can't help but be inspired by her performances, even without the added connection of being related to her.'When I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's, I enjoyed it the same way any young girl would,' she says. 'I've seen My Fair Lady and Roman Holiday, but I suppose my favorite is Funny Face.'Emma's father Sean, however, reveals that she and her grandmother may have more in common than she realizes.Iconic starlet: Audrey Hepburn, who passed away in 1993, pictured in a still from 1954's SabrinaFamily ties: Emma's father is Sean Ferrer, 54, whose parents were Hepburn (left) and her first husband, actor and director Mel Ferrer (right, in 1959), who passed away in 2008 'My mother was the same as she was on the screen: unassuming, humble, funny, emotional, strong, delicate,' says the father-of-three, who has also pursued an acting career as well as helping run the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund.'Fortunately Emma has much better boundaries than either Mom or I ever had. But the genes are strong - and the comedic gene is alive and well. And I can't help but think that both had to quit professional ballet because they were too tall.'For Emma, the associations between her and Hepburn are unavoidable, and it's something she is slowly coming to terms with.'Sometimes when I was younger, I felt confused toward what having a grandmother like her could mean in my life. But I am now understanding,' she says.As for Emma's mother, speaking from her Beverly Hills home, she tells MailOnline: 'I'm very proud of her, she's a wonderful young woman.'
