"These black patent Mary Jane shoes were worn by Drew Barrymore to the Youth in Film awards in 1984. I chose to highlight these shoes because they were worn by Barrymore shortly after she starred in the movie "E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial", which was a transformative movie for many people in my generation. E.T. is the first movie that I can ever remember seeing in a movie theatre; watching a young girl that was my age, acting in an extraordinary movie while munching on popcorn was pure magic."
