A fashion shoot in a bookstore accidentally uncovers shop clerk, Jo (Audrey Hepburn) as the next big thing in modelling. She’s whisked off to Paris to be turned into a cover girl, but finds her interest drawn to the city’s nightlife rather than wearing an endless stream of glamorous dresses.
“Long before The Devil wears Prada and Ugly Betty there was Paramount Studio’s Funny Face – a delicious, tongue-in-cheek nod to the fashion world, which has all the traits of a classic MGM musical” Heather Osborn, BFI website
“Funny Face knocks most other musicals off the screen for its visual beauty, its witty panache and its totally uncalculating charm - which is everywhere. Love triumphs over capitalist exploitation, joyless intellectualisation, and all things phony. It persuades because of the commitment and skill of its team and the lightness of the director’s underrated touch” Time Out London Movie Guide
