I’ve been following shoe designer Gianvito Rossi with much interest. He’s the son of Sergio Rossi so you know that fashion and shoes are in his DNA. And the ultimate stamp of approval? Vogue recently declared that he has the “shoes you’ll want come spring.” Vogue, I totally agree with your statement. I mean who doesn’t find this shoe beautiful and appealing?
So I was a bit disappointed that one of the first celebrities seen wearing Gianvito Rossi was Gwyneth Paltrow. See, I think she’s the perfect type of woman to wear the shoes but it’s her outfit which was a let down. Gwyneth Paltrow wore a white jacket, white shorts, and these black Gianvito Rossi sandals to the premiere of Iron Man 2. The shoes are beautiful but not when it’s paired with a white suit. There’s a bit too much color contrast going on for me plus there is a mismatch in styles. The suit is elegant and pure, the shoes are edgy.
What do you think – did Gwyneth do the shoes justice?
