Fred Astaire is cast as fashion photographer Dick Avery (a character based on Richard Avedon, the film's visual consultant), who is sent out by his female boss Maggie Prescott (Kay Thompson) to find a "new face". It doesn't take Dick long to discover Jo (Audrey Hepburn, who does her own singing), an owlish Greenwich Village bookstore clerk.
