I’m loving the pale velvety blue ballet flats Crown Princess Mary wore in her recent family photo portrait. I’m predicting these fresh pastel colours are going to be big.
Ballet flats were first made popular by Audrey Hepburn way back in the 1957 movie ‘Funny Face‘, who liked to wear black suede with a low oval heel and a shell sole. There are several companies that produce ballet flats:
French Sole (a London company) was one of Princess Diana’s favourite shoes. Kate Moss and Sienna Miller have been seen wearing the Lowcut and Henrietta style. Julia Roberts also wears them.
Alas, if only I didn’t have wide feet I could wear them!
