She's whisked off to Paris and gets to wear lots of fabulous clothes, and soon she's fighting her feelings for the photographer who discovered her in this May-December romance.
Dancing, singing, and a to-die-for wardrobe make this one of the most popular "fashion flicks" of all time. Edith Head and Hubert de Givenchy again teamed to create Audrey's amazing wardrobe, earning an Oscar nod but unfortunately, no statue that year.

But Rhett has had enough and leaves, reducing Scarlett to tears before she can pull herself together again and set her mind on winning him back.
Oscars been awarded for Best Costume then (the category didn't exist until 1948) designer Walter Plunkett would surely have taken top honors that night. Besides dressing Scarlett for 39 costume changes in such memorable ensembles as the barbecue gown, the green drapery dress and the off-the-shoulder "repentance" red dress she wore to Ashley's party, Plunkett also costumed hundreds of extras for the Wilkes' barbecue, the Atlanta Bazaar, the soldiers at the depot, etc. His attention to detail was staggering, right down to the crinoline petticoats.
