Aquazzura designer Edgardo Osorio loves how many famous women wear his shoes.

Cate Blanchett and Angelina Jolie are the missing feet for shoe designer Edgardo Osorio.

Edgardo is behind footwear brand Aquazzura, a label loved by celebrity and fashionistas alike. While his designs have graced the feet of countless stars, there are still two famous ladies who elude Edgardo.

“I think the only person I haven't seen is maybe Cate Blanchett, who I adore. Oh, and Angelina (Jolie). They're the only two left - the missing link,” he laughed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Edgardo is no stranger to the elite though, with his shoes regularly walking the red carpet at glitzy events. He’s hard pressed to choose his favourite A-list wearer though, as there are just too many to choose from.

“There's been so many amazing women who have been wearing the shoes. I love Charlize Theron and Julianne Moore, who I believe wears the shoes almost every week,” he beamed with pride.

“Jennifer Lawrence wears them a lot, too. Lily James wore the shoes beautifully to the premiere of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. We also have Gigi (Hadid) and Kendall (Jenner) that are regulars. I think this past weekend, Kendall was wearing one of our sandals for Easter. It's so many beautiful, inspiring women wearing the shoes. It's such a variety to see how they mix and match.”

Aquazzura also brought a famous name on board for a limited edition line. Poppy Delevingne, older sister of model and actress Cara, helped create Poppy Delevingne X Aquazzura collection, made up of shoes designed by the sun and sea.

"We did a mood board of all her looks and all the things she likes," he previously told Matches Fashion. "I told her to bring all the things she loves, and it’s funny because the one thing that she brought was a pair of earrings that she had bought in Saint Tropez, with a sun, moon and stars. I thought, 'This is so cute.'"
