I came across some stunning images by photographer Felix Rachor that made me feel a juxtaposed sense of inspired yet fleeting calmness of colourful passion - that had been ignited on a - Monday!
This image also reminds me of a youthful Audrey Hepburn in a Givenchy poppy red gown in the superbly magnificent 1957 movie 'Funny Face' with dance extraordinaire - Fred Astaire [a pseudo persona that may be - based on real life character Richard Avedon] with his character a Fashion photographer named Dick Avery, in search for an intellectual backdrop for an air-headed model, expropriates a Greenwich Village bookstore. When the photo session is over the store is left in a shambles, much to salesgirl Jo Stockton's dismay. Avery stays behind to help her clean up. Later, he examines the photos taken there and sees Jo in the background of one shot. He is intrigued by her unique appearance, as is Maggie Prescott, the editor of a leading fashion magazine. They offer Jo a modeling contract, which she reluctantly accepts only because it includes a trip to Paris. Eventually, her snobbish attitude toward the job softens, and Jo begins to enjoy the work and the company of her handsome photographer.
