Rita Wilson made her way to the red carpet for the premiere of “Pinocchio” yesterday in Burbank, Calif. She was supporting her husband Tom Hanks, who stars as Geppetto in the movie.

Wilson posed for each photo op clad in a Gucci two piece set and closet staple footwear. The “Sleepless in Seattle” actress made her presence known, the powerful designer set consisting of a black see-through button down cardigan dotted with the Italian brand’s monogram. Hidden underneath, Wilson wore a matching black midi gown with a sweatheart neckline also embossed with shiny monograms that served as a fun textural element, adding visual interest.

Keeping it simple, Wilson wore strappy black sandal heels, the effortless style allowing her ensemble to shine while offering the singer an uncomplicated silhouette to stand on. A sleek staple during warmer months, many stiletto sandals feature a simple strap across the toes and a fastener strap around the ankle, creating a barely-there construction. The heel of a stiletto sandal is often 4 inches or above, adding some height for a flattering silhouette.

Gucci has had a renaissance, the brand celebrating major success within the last few years thanks to the artistic direction and risk taking of creative director Alessandro Michele. Through Michele’s unique perspective, Gucci has partnered with the likes of Harry Styles and Miley Cyrus, creating lasting brand partnerships are worth their weight in gold.
