I can’t believe I’m actually writing these words but… happy sweet sixteen my darling girl. You are the light of my heart, you are pure joy. You are wickedly intelligent and you have the best, most dry, most brilliant sense of humor. I have the best time being your mom. I love our nightly evening chats when I really get to hear what’s on your mind. You work hard to get whatever it is you want to achieve, and you have grit and responsibility in spades. I am so damn lucky to be your mother, you beautiful, kind young woman. Thank you for choosing me. I adore you to the moon and back a zillion times. I’m sorry you are having this particular birthday during these circumstances, but as always with you, you find the best in everything. 💝

During an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2004, new mom Gwyneth Paltrow finally revealed why she named her baby girl Apple. Her first child was born on May 14, 2004, in London, England as Apple Blythe Alison Martin.

“When we were first pregnant, her daddy said, ‘If it’s a girl I think her name should be Apple,'” Gwyneth said. “It sounded so sweet, and it conjured such a lovely picture for me, you know. Apples are so sweet and they’re wholesome, and it’s biblical.”

Apple’s conception inspired British rock band Coldplay to release a video for “The Nappies” on their web site. The group’s lead singer, her father Chris Martin, also wrote Speed of Sound for their third studio album, X&Y (2005), to share his awe and joy at becoming a father.

During the 2012 Toronto Film Fest, Kate Hudson wasn’t the only blonde who wore stunning heels with her LBD. So did Gwyneth Paltrow!

The actress attended the premiere of her new movie “Thanks for Sharing” in an elegant sleeveless Tom Ford frock paired with gorgeous head-turning animal print sandals.

She completed the look with a Baume & Mercier watch and an Annoushka bracelet. The American actress finished off her ensemble with a pair of black, red, and animal-print shoes from Giuseppe Zanotti’s Fall 2012 collection.

Gwyneth wore the same pumps one day earlier with a coral flared skirt and a grey “Stand Up to Cancer” t-shirt.

Here’s a closer look at those sandals. Besides the catchy straps, what makes these shoes really stand out are the glam gold metal details on the back:

This style was available at Zappos and Farfetch but has unfortunately sold out. It is possible that Heidi Klum purchased the last pair!
