Considered to be two of the greatest actresses of their time, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn ruled the silver screen during the 1950’s. These Hollywood icons have been inspiring fashion for decades with their timeless style. Not only were these starlets known for the their acting abilities, they were also known for their impeccable taste in clothing…and shoes. Not surprisingly, G.H. Bass & Co. Weejuns have “graced” the feet of both Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn.

Known for her beauty and elegance, Grace Kelly was photographed wearing G.H. Bass & Co. Weejuns penny loafers for promotional shots for one of her final films, To Catch a Thief.   This photo epitomizes the Grace Kelly look, which fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger has characterized as “clean, classic, and simple.”  Shortly after, at the age of 26, she married Rainier III, Prince of Monaco and retired from acting to be a full time Princess.

Audrey Hepburn’s acting career spanned over four decades.  She, too, remains a fashion icon, listed in a 2015 article in Marie Claire as the “Ultimate Beauty Icon of All Time”, beating out Hollywood contemporaries Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, and Sophia Loren as well as modern day competitors, including Beyoncé, Kate Moss and Scarlett Johansson. In the 1957 film Funny Face, Audrey is seen dancing in a pair of G.H. Bass & Co. Weejuns during one of the most iconic scenes of her career.
