How To Wear Winter Whites Like Gwyneth Paltrow

by Eliza Florendo

Whoever said you can't wear white after Labor Day was seriously deranged. White, like black, is always a good idea and it was just confirmed again: Gwyneth Paltrow rocked a white jumpsuit at the RH Modern Gallery unveiling in Los Angeles. Let me just say, she's giving black a run for its money, because damn, this neutral might just be eclipsing fashion's favorite color.

Paltrow basically wrapped up three different trends in one look: Fall/winter whites, culottes, and a raw hem. Of course, the classic beauty pulled it off effortlessly. Plus, it had a plunging neckline that was the perfect mix of elegant and sexy. It was like a perfect present, finished off with a bow right in the middle. It's not quite holiday season yet, but she gave it to us!

Paltrow paired her culotte jumpsuit with red strappy sandals, adding just a bit of color to add a pop to her whole look. She tied it together with a red lip, straight hair in a deep side part, and a natural, fresh makeup look. Overall, I give it a 10 out of 10. It's a look I would definitely steal for my own wardrobe. I love how subtly sexy this whole ensemble was, too, and how the silhouette was both feminine and masculine. It's not easy to pull that off, but of course, Paltrow did!
