Audrey Hepburn Attacked by Cat shows Audrey Hepburn in a black dress and gloves, wearing a tiara, as she did in her role in Breakfast at Tiffanys. The cat has scratched her arm and the upper part of her chest, and has now gone on to attack her face. The cigarette holder is falling from her mouth. The background is a deep pink with deeper pink, almost like red paint, running down the wall.
Audrey Hepburns role in the movie was of a woman who loved to party and adored the glamour and glitz of New York. An elegant, if superficial woman, she was looking for a man to marry who would give her that life. The cats attack shows that there are other things that matter more, and that this elegant facade will not hold up to reality. The color of the wall and the paint suggest a bleeding away of the glamorous life the Hepburns character craves.
