She is one of those actresses who always has exceptional style, but this GOOP founder isn't always the most down-to-earth. There's a reason she regularly finds herself on top of red carpet best-dressed lists, but when Gwyneth Paltrow wore a French Connection dress to Fashion Fest Autumn/Winter 2015 in Mexico City, she proved that she also knows how to style herself impeccably even on a small budget.
Sure Paltrow's closet is packed full of designer duds worth thousands of dollars, but when you have great taste, you can make even an affordable find from your favorite superstore look like a million bucks. The GOOP-queen opted for French Connection's Lula Colour Block dress. The style is form-fitting, while still being totally grown-up and office appropriate. It features a bright swath of red across the bust, underscored by a waist-defining black stripe. It's also super simple to throw on, made out of stretchy viscose with a full zipper up the back.
And the best news of all? Not only is it still available in sizes 6 through 16 in two bold color ways, but the price is right, too. If you thought the dress's $137 price tag was already shockingly affordable, it's about to get a whole lot better. Using the site's promo code, right now you can nab Paltrow's exact dress for 30% off. Just don't be surprised when people start mistaking you for her doppelgänger.
Workin' it! Who knew dressing like GOOP would be so easy (and inexpensive)?
