Look-of-the-Day

Audrey Hepburn has donned the most famous little black dress, so it’s no surprise she’s probably worn the most iconic red dress, too!  For our final Valentine’s week post, we’ve chosen Hepburn wearing this legendary strapless, column gown by Givenchy in the 1957 film, Funny Face.  Her character, Jo Stockton, goes from a mousy bookworm to an international model, and this is her infamous arc – running down the steps of the Louvre in Paris, coming into her own, just like her sister statue at the top of the staircase, The Winged Victory.  (FYI, it’s really hard to recreate this shot when visiting Paris, because this place is always crawling with tourists… Hehe.)  The gorgeous clothing in this film is from the often-paired Edith Head and Hubert de Givenchy.  Who knew their partnership, and sometimes rivalry, would appear in so many historical cinematic moments?! <3
