Over the past 100 days, we found ourselves enchanted with first lady Michelle Obama's cardigan collection, affinity for J.Crew and endless supply of Jimmy Choo kitten heels.

Yesterday, the latest addition to People's 100 Most Beautiful list visited the Capital Area Food Bank in D.C., where she helped assemble more than 2,000 bags of food for hungry children. She wore a typical J.Crew sweater, natch, but wait—what are those are her feet? Gray sneakers with a pink metallic toe. Minds blown!

OK, not really. They're just shoes—really unexpected shoes by Lanvin that cost $540 at Barneys, so they might not sell out as quickly as we're used to.

And if those shoes are a bit too much, there are always those arms to aspire to, at least that's what Kirstie Alley told Oprah she's after.
