* AffectionateParody: Of 1950s high-fashion magazines, especially ''Vogue'' and ''Harper's Bazaar,'' and fashion photographers. This produces a CrowningMomentOfFunny early in the film, when Fred Astaire (playing the fashion photographer) and his crew totally disrupt Jo Stockton's [Hepburn] Greenwich Village bookshop for a magazine shoot.

* AllMenArePerverts: Discussed when Dick gets jealous of Jo with Professor Flostre: "He's a philosopher, but he's also a man." Dick winds up being proven right when Flostre manages to be alone with Jo and starts trying to get grabby with her.



** Subverted with Marion, the model who is fruitlessly ''trying'' to look brainy in the bookstore shoot.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulEcho: Jo subscribes to a philosophical current called "empathicism", which as the name implies, revolves around empathy. First mentioned in a conversation with Dick while they are trying to tidy up the bookstore, it becomes a bit of a theme at the climax with Maggie and her staff mobilizing to get Jo and Dick back together.


Added DiffLines:

* RaceForYourLove: Subverted; it only ''appears'' Jo does this at the end of the fashion show toward the end of the film, when all she knows is that Dick will be taking the next plane to New York; she had actually gone to the garden by the small church of the wedding dress shoot, which is where they first realized their feelings for each other.

* PimpedOutDress: Numerous exampless on of splendid late-1950s ''haute couture'', and Creator/AudreyHepburn[='=]s character is dressed, when we first see her, as the chic Hollywood version of a beatnik. In fact, this movie was one of the films that established Hepburn as a style icon.
