Christies-holds-auction-of-Audrey-Hepburn-green-ballet-shoes

Three pairs of leather ballet pumps, circa 1960 One pair in burgundy trimmed with red ribbon; one in daffodil yellow with yellow ribbon and one pair in emerald green trimmed with Petersham ribbon. By family tradition, these shoes were acquired from Capezio. Audrey Hepburn’s son Sean remembers ‘bundles of these shoes arriving, folded flat, fastened by a rubber band’ and he suggests Hepburn may well have bought them en masse from Capezio, when her favourite model was discontinued. £6,000 – £9,000
