'Funny Face'

SCAD FASH Film series

The SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film presents a viewing of Stanley Donen's "Funny Face" (1957), a film adaptation of the 1927 Broadway musical by George and Ira Gershwin, as part of the film series "Costume Drama: Historic Dress in Film." Starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire, one of the play's original actors, this romantic comedy follows the story of owlish Greenwich Village bookstore clerk Jo Stockton as she becomes the world’s most sought-after model.

Early 20th-century ensembles similar to those worn by the cast of "Funny Face" are showcased in the current SCAD FASH exhibition "Threads of History: Two Hundred Years of Fashion."

This film is introduced by Alexandra Sachs, executive director of SCAD FASH and Atlanta exhibitions.
