An iconic 1957 movie musical starring Creator/AudreyHepburn, Kay Thompson and Creator/FredAstaire, and directed by Stanley Donen (''SinginInTheRain'' and ''Film/SevenBridesForSevenBrothers'').

Maggie Prescott (Thompson) is fashion editor looking for the next big thing - trying to find something intelligent and beautiful. She and photographer Dick Avery (Astaire) search for models who "think as well as they look". They decide to take over a village bookstore to use for a photoshot, much to salegirl Jo Stockton's (Hepburn) dismay as the shop is left in a total mess.

Dick notices Jo in one of the photographs and the pair decide to hire her as a model, which Jo only agrees to so she take the trip to Paris but her snobbish attitude softens over the film as she starts to enjoy the company of the handsome photographer.

!!The movie provides examples of:
* 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.
* {{Beatnik}}s
* BrainyBrunette: Jo's EstablishingCharacterMoment.
* TheCameo: Well-known (at the time) 1950s fashion models Dovima and Suzy Parker (who herself later became an actress).
* FashionShow: The "Think Pink" number.
* HollywoodNerd: Jo Stockton. Type 2, obviously, since this is Creator/AudreyHepburn.
* ImNotPretty: Jo tells Dick she couldn't possibly be a model, because her face looks funny.
* InNameOnly: The film shares a title, four songs (not including the originally CutSong), music composers (Music/{{George| Gershwin}} and Ira Gershwin), and [[Creator/FredAstaire the leading man]] with the original stage musical. The plot, however, has nothing to do with it.
* MayDecemberRomance: While ages aren't directly stated for the ''characters'', Audrey was 30 years younger than Fred.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed:
* 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.
* PowerTrio: Jo is Superego, Dick is Ego and Maggie is Id.
** Later in the film, Dick and Maggie switch roles.
* RemakeCameo: Creator/FredAstaire starred in the original stage version of ''Funny Face'' in [[TheTwenties 30 years prior.]] The show went through numerous rewrites and a name change (from ''Smarty''), and the film version [[InNameOnly has a completely different plot]].
