Whoa! We didn’t see this one coming. We’re referring to Gwyneth Paltrow’s announcement that she and long-time husband, Chris Martin, are separating. It’s always sad to hear couples “uncouple” (a word we learned from Gwyneth herself), and this particular love story had the makings of a happy ending. Only, we were sadly wrong.
Well, we hope they will live happy separate lives at least. And we certainly hope the kids are handling the separation well.
Gwyneth once again appeared on an episode of Glee that aired yesterday, and for this particular run, she channeled her inner disco girl and slipped into sparkly separates while singing to the tune of “Party All the Time.” You can watch the video below if you missed the episode.

What do you think of Gwyneth’s performance?
Well, she can definitely sing. We’re not fond of the song, but she looks hot in her shimmery outfit. And because we’re shoe people here, we certainly didn’t miss the strappy silver open-toe heels she wore with her disco look. They seemed like a pair of woven t-straps, although it was honestly hard to tell.

We’ve yet to get the details on Gwyneth’s shoes, but here’s a similar, albeit more luxurious, pair from Charlotte Olympia called the “Sugar Swirl” sandals. These have 4-inch-tall heels and feature mesh panels in between the leather straps.
Whether Gwyneth danced in 4 inch stilettos, we really don’t know. But if she did, then hats off to her. Now, if you fancy the silvery heels from Charlotte Olympia but you’re on a tight budget, you can easily score cheaper styles online. Try the folowing versions from Nina and VC Signature:

Also, we thought we’d include a couple of standout Instagram shots posted by the actress on her account. The first few pictures below show Gwyneth in a pair of gold-detailed cigarette-heeled suede pumps from Nicholas Kirkwood. She wore the pair when she attended the Boss fashion show in New York in February.

Below is a closer look at her shoes. They’re crafted from plush suede leather and decorated with large gold ornaments at the toes. These pumps also feature pin-thin metallic cigarette heels. If you’re interested, you can find these stilettos on the designer’s website:
Another standout Instagram moment from the actress would be this picture of her wearing a Valentino outfit during the Golden Globe Awards in January.

We found the dress a little inappropriate for such an event, but it was a stunning piece nonetheless. The actress finished the look with a pair of suede ankle-strap pumps that we could not ID. But they look very similar to the “Haven” pumps from Michael Kors, which are currently on sale at Macy’s:
