Reel Women in Film: Funny Face
Texas Spirit Theater | NR | 103 min. | Comedy, Musical, Romance
January 24, 2020 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Join the Bullock Museum for a screening and conversation about the film Funny Face and the fashion trailblazer that makes this film stand out.
An impromptu fashion shoot at a book store brings about a new fashion model discovery in the shop clerk.
Funny Face is a story set in high fashion yet parodies the fashion industry in many ways. One of its leads, Audrey Hepburn, is revered as a style icon for her signature looks both off and on screen, and was closely associated with couturier Hubert de Givenchy who paired with acclaimed costume designer Edith Head to style Hepburn for her role in Funny Face among other titles. Edith Head, who won a record number of Academy Awards for costume design, also assisted in styling Hepburn for multiple films and worked with nearly every top female star in Hollywood.
This screening is part of Reel Women in Film, a film series that highlights the filmic works of women in front of or behind the camera. In its second season, focus will be on ideas of empowerment seen through the lens of fashion and activism. Additionally, we will look at those within the field of filmmaking that are in the periphery, the costume designers. This evening's program is shown in conjunction with our Fashion Forward exhibition, which explores how the fashion innovations of yesterday impact our closets today. The evening's program includes a film screening and Q&A. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Please note: Entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX Lobby doors.
