Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 01/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "FUNNY FACE is a visual treat. Technicolor set-pieces showcase the real stars of the picture -- Hepburn's lavish, Givenchy-designed dresses."
Wall Street Journal - 08/28/2009
"George and Ira Gershwin supplied the music and lyrics. Thompson, Astaire and Hepburn supplied the magic."
Total Film - 02/24/2014
5 stars out of 5 -- "One of Hollywood's funniest, most stylish musicals, this breezy satire from 1957 thrives on the pairing of Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn."
Empire - 02/22/2014
4 stars out of 5 -- "A timeless musical treat and the most fun you can have with really elegant clothes on."

Plot Synopsis:

Serious thinker Jo catches the interest of fashion photographer Dick Avery, who is seeking a natural and "funny" face to take with him to a Paris fashion show. Seeing the opportunity to bring her ideas on philosophy to the Left Bank caf├ęs, Jo agrees to join him, but once in Paris, Dick's focused attention on her and the fairy-tale clothes inspire daydreams of love. Fred Astaire's silky dance moves and Audrey Hepburn's fresh, wistful spirit charge this modern-day Cinderella story with elegance and charm.
