It’s Gwyneth Paltrow for you again today. The actress was spotted looking au naturelle and summer ready early this week, while attending Beyonce’s private gig in London. She had no make-up on, had a casual but cute little blue summer tunic for an outfit, and paired it with some great looking luggage brown platform sandals. Check out this pic:

I know, I know, it’s hard to appreciate those sandals from that angle so here’s a clearer product shot for you. Gwyneth’s criss cross babies are these Givenchy Cross Over Leather Platform Sandals:
They are quite chunky, I agree, but you have to admit, they also look different. There is something about its silhouette that makes it standout, and for that, I give it my vote. Of course, beauty is always subjective and you may have an entirely different opinion of it.
Just to give you a few more tidbits about this shoe, both the 1 inch thick platform and 5 inch heel are wooden with a glossy finish, so yes, expect some weight while walking in it.

Oh, and before I forget, check out the foot bed, not only is it padded, it’s quilted too!
