The elegant Audrey Hepburn may be playing hard to get, but Fred Astaire looks determined to get a photo of her!
The photo above is one of the promotional photos for the 1957 musical film Funny Face, which starred Fred Astaire as famous fashion photographer Dick Avery, Kay Thompson as fashion magazine publisher and editor Maggie Prescott, and Audrey Hepburn as bookshop clerk and amateur philosopher turned fashion model Jo Stockton.
Interestingly, Fred Astaire’s character was based on iconic fashion photographer Richard Avedon, who also designed the opening title sequence and acted as a consultant for the film. Meanwhile, Kay Thompson’s character was based on Diana Vreeland, fashion columnist for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.
Anyway, looks like Dick Avery finally managed to snap a photo of the classy Jo Stockton:
