Funny Face is a treasure trove. It’s packed full of fashion inspiration, from Kay Thompson’s pink office redecoration to the extravagant photo shoot sequence and everything in between.
One of the most iconic scenes of the film is Audrey Hepburn’s dance routine in a hip underground club. Audrey becomes the ultimate beatnik chick, with her tiny black clad figure and cool cat moves, she’s like a stylish burglar! Copy the look by paring black capri pants with a black polo neck, flat black dancing shoes , minimalist makeup and hair simply tied back in a pony tail with a side sweeping fringe. This look can work for summer by wearing a light weight summer tshirt instead of a polo neck.
“Think pink! think pink! when you shop for summer clothes. Think pink! think pink! if you want that quel-que chose” As the lyrics go “think pink” and embrace the gorgeous 1950s bright pinks that perk up your complexion and bring a little life into your wardrobe. Two piece suits are perfect for day time and bright pink or bold patterned big skirts and 50s swing dresses are perfect for the evening. Although they seem heavy, the big skirt is perfect for keeping cool swishing on cool on the dance floor as long as you go for cottons and chiffons. Finish the look with white accessories and chiffon shawls for chilly evenings.
