This might be the only time that Kim Kardashian would take you calling her “Funny Face” as a compliment. The reality star filmed an energy-drink ad in Miami channeling Audrey Hepburn’s character in the iconic 1956 film, from the piecey gamine bangs to the black turtleneck and cropped cigarette pants and Audrey’s signature bow-topped flats.

The simple Audrey-inspired look was a total 180° from her most recent Paris outfits (including two high-necked, long-sleeved, heavily embellished gowns for running errands) — besides being sleek and understated in her style, the sweet ponytail was a fun, girlie change for the normally super-glam star.

At first glance, Kim and Audrey might not have much in common, but the two stars do have one major connection: Givenchy. Hepburn was Hubert de Givenchy’s muse — the designer created some of her most iconic looks, from Funny Face to Sabrina to her famous black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. And Kim is a muse for current-day Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, who has lavishly complimented her, calling her “the new Marilyn Monroe” and said she was “the most beautiful pregnant woman I have dressed in my career” after last year’s Met Gala.

What do you think of these comparisons? Would you have compared Kim to Audrey? How’s she pulling off the look?
