Funny Face (1957) was Audrey Hepburn's 12th film but only her 5th film where she played the lead. She starred with the legendary Fred Astaire and the iconic Kay Thompson (author of the Eloise books). Funny Face is a smorgasbord of memorable film moments. You have high fashion, dances scenes with Audrey and Fred, a real high fashion model named Dovima, a cameo appearance by Suzy Parker, and an unforgettable singing/dancing scene with Kay Thompson. 

There are so many unforgettable scenes in this film. It is the sort of film that you can watch over and over again and always discover something "new". And when it comes to fashion, it is simply a feast for the eyes. I think Funny Face is the sort of film that can't help but put a smile on your face.

For my latest edition of A Vintage Nerd Recreates, I wanted to try my hand at Audrey's famous photo shoot with Richard Avedon from 1957. Audrey was a trained dancer and far more limber but it was still so much fun to channel my inner Jo Stockton.
