My Freckled Lady
Julie Andrews by George Konig, 1954

One of our favourite images of the young Julie, aged 18. This charming portrait by freelance photographer, George Konig, was taken just before Julie departed England for New York to star in The Boy Friend

Freckles and pearls, the shot enchants with its arresting liminality. Barely weeks away from her nineteenth birthday, Julie is poised here on the cusp of both womanhood and extraordinary stardom. The young girl from Walton-on-Thames may not yet realise it but her life is about to change forever.
