Salvatore Ferragamo designed for actresses including Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren, earning the nickname the “shoemaker to the stars”, yet some of his most noteworthy pieces were for Audrey Hepburn. Standout pieces from their winning combination are her loafers in Funny Face and her slingbacks in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The collaboration culminated in the ‘Audrey’ pumps, flat ballet-style shoes with a single strap, reflecting Hepburn’s background in dance.
