Vanity Fair November 2010 – Think Hepburn!

Couture shoot: Styled by Michael Roberts

Have I mentioned recently how much I love Funny Face? Well, of course, I’m not the only one. Vanity Fair is also fond of the 1957 film by the looks of things. En route back from New York I picked up the November issue (doesn’t have quite the same ring as the September issue, does it?) with Marilyn Monroe on the cover, only to find inside a shoot based on the film. Featuring divine Haute Couture creations, the roll-call of designers includes Armani Privé, Christian Dior, Valentino, Givenchy, Chanel and Franck Sorbier (a personal favourite as he once sent me a sketch by way of hello after attending his couture show—we Australians are pretty thin on the ground there).

Taking over the role of Jo Stockton from Audrey Hepburn is Kaya Scodelario (previously of TV’s Skins, currently shooting Wuthering Heights as Cathy). As Dick Avery, enter Harry Treadaway (Control, Fish Tank). And, if anyone could step in for Kay Thompson’s Maggie Prescott, most beloved of Fashion & Film characters (ahem), it would have to be Loulou de la Falaise. Think pink!
