When Oscar winner Kate Winslet arrived to our April cover shoot set in West Sussex, England, we immediately took note of her easygoing nature, fresh-faced beauty, and, yes, her fab shoe collection. The star, who came dressed in a black Cosabella tunic, Alexander Wang T-shirt, and black coated jeans, brought along a few pair of heels from her own closet to pose in, including a pair of Roger Vivier peep toes and our fave, these sleek Giuseppe Zanotti sandals (pictured below).

The ankle-strap style, which are available now at Giuseppe Zanotti boutiques ($815; 212-650-0455), went well with the timeless black-and white looks—by Bottega Veneta, Ralph Lauren Collection, and Michael Kors, among others—that Winslet wore throughout the day. As impressed as we were with her footwear (she even managed to walk outside on a nearby pebble beach in stilettos), it was the actress's other balancing act that was truly memorable. Between shots, she read over the script for her upcoming film, Steve Jobs, and found time to sneak in a quick visit with then-13-month-old son Bear and hubby, Ned Rocknroll. Now that's what we call efficient.
