1954: Audrey Hepburn wears a wedding gown and veil in her role as Jo Stockton in Funny Face. The photo was taken by David Seymour, who in 1947, helped found the first international cooperative photographic agency — Magnum. The dance scene in which Audrey wears this costume was shot outdoors after weeks of torrential rain. Audrey had nine pairs of white satin dancing shoes that were made in Paris that she had to continuously swap out as each became muddied beyond use. “Here I’ve been waiting for twenty years to dance with Fred Astaire,” Audrey quipped, “and what do I get? Mud in my eye!”
“I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.”
