Vogue’s Exclusive Digital Cover: Bella Takes Paris

Funny Face is a 1957 romantic comedy that’s nominally about a May-December romance but is really about a love affair with fashion (specifically between Audrey Hepburn and Givenchy).

Hepburn is Jo Stockton, a serious bookworm discovered by photographer Dick Avery, a character played by Fred Astaire and based on Richard Avedon, who falls for Jo’s “Character, spirit, and intelligence” as revealed through his lens.

Bella Hadid, another doe-eyed leading lady, undertakes a similar transformation for Vogue’s exclusive digital cover.

Neck out like Marella Agnelli, with hands on hips in the manner of such impossibly elegant past Vogue cover girls as Lisa Fonssagrives and Sunny Harnett, Hadid is the picture of poise.

Designers delivered sophistication minus any stuffiness for Fall and directed it to latter-day Jo Stocktons, i.e., women of substance.

Two such women are responsible for Hadid’s elegant ensemble.

Her strapless red dress, made of an adaptable technical crepe, was designed by Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller; the dream of a marabou hat by Christelle Kocher of Koché.

It’s no wonder that a vibrant, happy Hadid exudes such joie de vivre.
