Wendy Faracino, a Bobbi Brown makeup artist at Saks Fifth Avenue in Southampton, was on her break and looking at a pair of Manolo Blahniks when Renee Zellweger strolled up and the two began talking about shoes.
Barely 15 minutes after she went back to work, Faracino was approached by the shoe department’s manager with a gift-wrapped box. “These are compliments of Ren?e Zellweger. She wanted you to have them,” he said. Inside were the Manolos she’d been admiring.
