Style Icon {Gwyneth Paltrow}

who doesn’t love gwyneth paltrow? besides her impressive résumé, i find we could learn a lot from her fashion choices both on and off the red carpet. she certainly knows what works for her — she loves the color black but will occasionally introduce navy or white, she knows how to rock a daringly short minidress, and she practically patented the blunt bob we see her with today.
rocking a balenciaga lbd.
rocker chic in black balmain.
a barely there minidress by preen.
a personal favorite: paltrow steals the spotlight in racy stella mccartney.
classic yves saint laurent.
stunning in dramatic floor-length ferragamo.
lovely in (backless) lace by antonio berardi.
testing out the nude trend in elie saab haute couture.
straying (just barely!) from her favored black in navy chanel.
a day in the life: sitting front row at adolfo dominguez.
a fresh take on summery style in giambattista valli.
if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it: paltrow nails it in another stella mccartney number.
walking the walk in an alice + olivia coat and christian louboutin booties.
showing up to husband chris martin’s coldplay concert.
a never-fails color combination for when there’s nothing else you want to wear.
her statuesque frame pulls off head-to-toe white beautifully.
wedge booties put an edgy spin on a classic tweed blazer.
lighting up a tv appearance in a sparkly gold jacket.
what do you think of her style? any favorite looks?

  1. I think Gwyneth just gets better for every year. She is really finding her style and feels more cohesive and relaxed now.
    Have you checked out her fab blog ‘Goop’?

  2. Love Gwyneth! She always managed to look classy, even when she’s wearing something super short. And I love how she does her makeup — it’s always fresh and pretty and never too much. I’d say my favorite looks are the first few in the short LBDs. Jealous of those legs!

  3. While I won’t call it a comeback, her promotional tour for Iron Man 2 and her subsequent appearances have her looking the best she’s ever looked in her life. Her style is SPOT ON.

  4. Such a great choice! I’ve loved her since she wore the simple, pink princess dress when she won for Shakespeare in Love, and she’s only gotten better with age. Such natural grace and beauty!

  5. Love Gwennie! She stole my heart in Great Expectations… Was suprised at how funny and caring she was on ‘The Marriage Ref’ a few weeks ago (can’t believe I just admitted to watching that!)

  6. I can’t help it. I love her. Sometimes she says and does some pretty dumb/arrogant shiz and I am all, GWYN you are making this really hard on me, but I still head over and goop it up…She could not look more opposite than I do, but I still (foolishly at times) try to follow her fashion/beauty, petite curvy brunettes should NOT wear head to toe white pant suits…lesson learned

  7. Love Gwyneth Paltrow! She is such a style icon, there is a picture of her in a black shirt and denim jeans from the early 90s which is still fashionable today.
    My nana always told me that I reminded her of Gwyneth (I had blonde hair at the time) so maybe that is why I like her so much.
    I have heard some gossip that is a bit sad about her behaviour on the set of Iron Man 2. I really hope that it isn’t true 🙁
    I have really enjoyed this post! –My fav is her dressed head to toe in white– love!
