Tim Gunn introduces one of the best-loved fashion films and musicals of all time. Funny Face stars Audrey Hepburn as an intellectual waif transformed into a swan by Fred Astaire, who plays a photographer modeled on Richard Avedon, and Kay Thompson as the imperious fashion editor who famously exhorts everyone to “Think Pink!” With costumes by Givenchy and Edith Head and songs by George and Ira Gershwin, the film epitomizes 1950s glamour.
