Hot on the heels of her serious fashion moment at the Oscars, Gwyneth Paltrow, capitalising on her “hot right now” -ness, produced her cleverest fashion-focused Goop newsletter yet. (What do you mean, you don’t get the Goop newsletter? You’d better get on that; it’s got the inside track to how Gwyneth gets so hot and, y’know, stuff like that.) Anyway, the most recent one was in association with Net-a-Porter, wherein Gwyneth showed you how to get various looks, with handy hints as to what they’d be good for. It’s seriously adorable – click through each photograph to see Gwynnie’s Net-a-Porter picks!

Granted, the bodycon dress isn’t really high up on my “to buy” list, but this is a really nice look – and it doesn’t scream 1990s Posh Spice to me, like most of those Herve Leger-inspired numbers do. (If you’re into that look, have you seen my Xposé segment featuring French Connection dresses?)

I have a leather pencil skirt I really need to skinny into so I can try some of these looks, although I’ll admit those tassled Maison Martin Margiela shoes make me feel like getting sick in my mouth. I’ve just thought of at least 10 things that my leather skirt will look good with … amazing.

I would call this a playsuit, moreso than a jumpsuit, and I don’t think I’d wear it during the day as it’s really, really short – but I appreciate Gwyneth’s chutzpah. (Did you know that is pronounced like h-utzspah? I love saying it. You have to kind of throat the H. It’s hilarious.)

I feel as if this is Gwyneth’s hanging-with-the-girls outfit – like, she doesn’t have to be so sexy all the time. It’s quite a playful look, and the full, gathered skirt is really having a moment. (This pic makes me want to take last season’s midis and have them all taken up at the Zip Yard – I might just do that!)

Has anyone tried Mother jeans? I’ve been hearing great things about them, and they look great here (but then again, la Gwyneth, sigh …)

This is the point at which I begin to feel aggravated that not only does Gwyneth look great in bloomer-type shorts (honestly, who looks good in those?!) but she can also wear yellow – which a lot of Irish skin tones can’t. It’s something about our pasty, ruddy complexions – I know that every time I put a yellow garment anywhere near my face I immediately break out in a sickly pallor. It’s frightening.

And, the end! Gwyneth’s little red dress.

I really loved getting this Goop newsletter – and it’s quite rare that I get commercial / promotional content in my email and feel, well, content about it. (See what I did there?)

Are there any mailers that you actually like getting? What are they?!
