The Simply Luxurious Life®: Rules of Style – Gwyneth Paltrow

Rules of Style – Gwyneth Paltrow

Far surpassing the triple threat, Gwyneth Paltrow does even more and shines at it all. Whether it is gracing the big screen and scooping up an Oscar, singing a beautiful melody, being a creator of a fun and creative blog GOOP, dancing away with Matthew Morrison on Fox’s hit television show Glee or sharing her home comforts with readers in her recently released cookbook, she appears to be limitless.

While a few pundits have grumbled at her ubiquity as of late, far more have come to her defense and applauded her for everything that she has accomplished.

I must say, I am always captivated by her ease and grace.  How she seems to carry herself so nonchalantly, yet proudly at the same time appearing very approachable. Standing at 5’9” tall, she is not afraid to wear towering high heels and reveal her svelte figure which comes with a rigorous dedication to dance training and pilates.

And one of the many rewards of sweating for a few hours a day is the opportunity to wear some breath-taking designer gowns.

Here is a collection of a few of the rules of style she seems to follow:

The Legs – Show Them Off!



Share Your Talents & Discover True Contentment


Skinny Jeans & Heels


A Trench & Boots


Elegant Nudes/Blushes & Neutrals


A Little or a Lot of Color


A Jacket Over Something Feminine


Dark Denim Flares


When In Doubt, Go With Black


Shorts & Heels


Cashmere Sweater, Ankle Jeans & Fabulous Heels



A Glass of Wine While You Cook

Terri - that truly does seem to be the case which is a great example to us all. We all have our own beat we first have to find it and then be strong enough to follow it. xo

Penney3000 - Thanks for reminding me about the website - just added it to the post per your reminder/ :) It is a great website - well organized and full of ideas for food, travel, clothing, fun, - a little bit of everything.

Cara - Her book is on my wishlist - I can't wait to order it as well.

Shannon, you know I love me some Gwyneth, great pictures you collected for the post. I just got her cookbook (a signed copy via One Kings Lane) and I was reading it last night. Yes, I love reading cookbooks like they are novels. I cannot wait to make some of her recipes.
Have a great weekend with your friends, sounds fab.
xoxo Carrie

I don't know, Shannon, I find Gwyneth overrated! I thought Cate Blanchett should have won the Oscar that year! But that's just me.
