Funny Face

Feature Film USA 1957

Based on the musical of the same name by Gershwin (1927), cult film Funny Face is a bridge between the Golden Age of Haute Couture and the Golden Age of Hollywood. The editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine (Kay Thompson) is seeking a new face to represent young women. Photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire) meets Jo (Audrey Hepburn) by chance and he is immediately attracted by her simplicity, but the girl seems only to be interested in her philosophy studies. Dick eventually convinces her to come to Paris where she turns into a very sophisticated woman. Kay Thompson's character is inspired by the then "Harper's Bazaar" editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland, while Astaire's role is inspired by photographer Richard Avedon, who was the photography consultant for the film. Audrey Hepburn perfectly embodies the "New Look", with also some reference to beat style; she is dressed by her favourite designer Givenchy and she returns to her first artistic passion: dance. The song and dance number "Think Pink!" has become a unique motto in the history of fashion.
