Rare Audrey Hepburn is a tumblr blog featuring rare and popular photographs of the 'S wonderful Audrey Hepburn. I do not own any of these pictures; I do my best to credit the photographers of each picture as well as providing the date the picture was taken. I encourage all to message me if you have additional information on the photographs posted. Every picture posted is a great find I've stumbled upon during my Audrey Hepburn pictorial hunt. Also, follow me at My Humble Fash and Sandra Deevoted.
8. The Kitten Heel
The kitten heel, introduced in the late 1950s, was Audrey Hepburn’s style of choice when it came to footwear.  With a short, slender heel the shoe was a perfect fit for Audrey’s tall, delicate frame. During Audrey’s time in Rome for the shooting of Roman Holiday, she made a very special connection with none other than Salvatore Ferragamo.  Ferragamo, the acclaimed shoe designer, at the time already had an esteemed clientele such as Sophia Loren, Greta Garbo, Lauren Bacall, Ava Gardner and the Duchess of Windsor.  After spending a day with Ferragamo at his workshop Palazzo Spini Feroni in Florence, Audrey became a loyal customer choosing only to wear his heels for the duration of her life.  Once again the kitten heel has made its comeback in fashion; Manolo Blahnik added the feminine shoe to his recent collections, recreating the kitten heel for a newer generation.
