Why Gal Gadot Wore Flats Over Heels to Her Wonder Woman Premiere
The premiere of Wonder Woman was a rather historic event, and not just for the controversy it sparked over its all-female screenings: The film’s release brought the 40+ year-old character to the big screen for the first time and marked the first female-fronted superhero flick since 2005, as well as the first superhero film directed by a woman since 2008.
If you thought the film’s star, Gal Gadot, would feel pressured to get dressed to the hilt in any uncomfortable costume, however, you’d be wrong.
While the actress certainly looked glam AF in her glitzy red halter Givenchy gown and an 18K gold Tiffany & Co. Out of Retirement loop bracelet ($12,500), it was the footwear she donned underneath, perhaps, that left us most impressed.
Upon lifting up her skirts, the 32-year-old revealed herself to be wearing not the ouch-inducing heels one might expect, but what are quickly becoming her signature flats in a pair of budget-friendly $50 Aldo gladiator Starda sandals.
When asked about her choice, Gadot had the perfect response, saying with a breezy shrug, “It’s more comfortable. Yeah. Good!”
We ‘re digging your ‘tude, Gal — in fact, we just might have to scoop those babies up in one of the six colors available over on the site.
A true “Wonder Woman,” indeed!
