Gwyneth Paltrow has always marched to the beat of her own drum. Although with Blythe Danner as her mum, this was inevitable. Whether it's in the wellness space via her company Goop, pushing the envelope on creative celebrity baby names, or giving us the term "conscious uncoupling", the actor knows how to turn heads. A vagina scented candle will do that, I guess.
All jokes aside, we will never forget Paltrow's crucial role in pinning down Harvey Weinstein over decades of abuse allegations. The actor and beauty guru has always been steadfast in her beliefs, doing her best to impart any knowledge along the way. At 50 years of age, she's influenced us in more ways than we can count.
No where does this ring true more than in the realm of fashion. Sifting through the archives of 90s style, we can't help but think that Paltrow is a strong contender for the era's best dressed. From her coordinated couple dressing with Brad Pitt to that Oscars dress to being the example of the heartthrob bob we show our hairdresser, there's something about her personal style that we just can't shake.
Even in her films she's manage to deliver on the fashion front. Take, for example, her role as Margot in The Royal Tenenbaums. That fur coat, Lacoste polo, Birkin and eyeliner moment is our favourite last minute Halloween costume (minus the Birkin of course). The Talented Mr. Ripley pulls through too, offering up hoards of inspiration for our next European summer.
As Gwyneth Paltrow celebrates her 50th birthday, we're offering up a little space for the Libran queen. If like us, you've felt drawn to her style, then find a round up of Paltrow's best fashion moments below.
