Take a look back at Gwyneth's fashion hits and misses from over the years...
Gwyneth Paltrow is an Oscar winning actress, lifestlye entrepreneur, Mum of two and part-time country singer (did you know all that?). She was born in 1972 in Los Angeles, California into a showbiz family – her mother was an award winning actress and her Father a producer so it’s no wonder she headed down the same route.
She gained prominence as an actress in films like Se7en alongside Morgan Freeman and Great Expectations but really burst into the public consciousness in 1998 when she won an Oscar for her performance in the film Shakespeare In Love.
And although her Oscar winning speech was memorable, who could forget that bubblegum pink Ralph Lauren dress she wore on the night? Gwyneth’s style choices over the years have been as memorable as her acting and she really has come far. The California native started out in slinky, silky numbers in the 90s, which were often pink or black but now favours a more paired-back, effortless style when on the red carpets.
Her hair and make-up has stayed the same for the past few years although if you look at our images you’ll see that she’s ditched her dark brown dye and glossy lips from the earlier days.
Gwyneth’s marriage to Coldplay front man Chris Martin might have ended in 2014 but her career contines to go from strength to strength – her Goop lifestyle website nets her some extra income and has designers falling over themselves to dress her ever since she attained leading-lady status in Hollywood.
These days Gwyennie favours British labels like Victoria Beckham and Stella McCartney as well as old favourites like Lanvin, Valentino and Armani. And pretty much everything looks stunning on her. We’re totally not jealous…
