Bianca Jagger's shoes by Alice Instone
Painting the shoes of prominent women

From Cherie Booth to Annie Lennox, Alice Instone has painted portraits of some of Britain’s most successful women. But now, she’s turned her attention to their shoes. For her latest exhibition – Interview with a Shoe ­– Instone has painted the footwear of some of the UK’s most high profile people including Nicole Farhi, Bianca Jagger, Elle Macpherson and Baroness Neuberger. Alice joins Jenni to talk about her work, the women she’s painted and what a pair of shoes can say about the person who owns them.

'Interview with a Shoe' opens at Beach Blanket Babylon in London on May 21st until June 3rd.
