Apparently, the Oscar winner called on Ferragamo to design all the shoes for her upcoming epic, Australia, directed by her good friend and fellow Australian Baz Luhrman.
The film, due to be released this Christmas, is set in 1940s Australia and sees Nicole cast as Lady Sarah Ashley, a British aristocrat who inherits a ranch in Darwin. She then has to battle a plot to have it taken away from her, drive her cattle 2,000 miles across the country and get's caught up in the Japanese bombing of Darwin in 1942, all with the help of her co-star Hugh Jackman. Think Out of Africa meets The Piano!
Sounds like quite an ordeal. No wonder she needed fabulous shoes to see her through.
