Funny Face from NZIFF

09Between film festivals and fashion events over March and April, we’ve had opportunities for another look at The September Issue (Auckland)  and DV: The Eye has to Travel (Dunedin), and the French Film Festival has included Mademoiselle C, the doco on Carine Roitfeld.

But fashion magazines and their editors have been at the movies since ages back. One of the earliest and most gorgeous portrayals was Stanley Donen’s Funny Face, getting an airing this autumn during the NZ International Film Festival’s Classic Movie Weekends.

Audrey Hepburn swanning around in Paris in Givenchy frocks, and dancing with Fred Astaire to music by Gershwin, on a big screen. S’wonderful, right?
