Gwyneth Paltrow Wearing a White Dress | September 2012

The Sexiest, Chicest LWD We've Ever Seen Is on Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow's latest is a testament to the fact that rules — like no white after Labor Day — were made to be broken, and that one seriously hot dress is all you need to outfit a head-turning look. With all the bold, heavily-accessorized looks that come with the street style at Fashion Week, we have to admit that it's a refreshing change to see Gwyneth sans add-ons, letting her sleek Tom Ford dress (and that famously fit figure) speak for itself while out for the Obama Victory Fund dinner in London. We know what you're thinking: I wish I could pull that off — and you can. Here's how.

  • Your dress doesn't have to look exactly like Gwyneth's, just find a white version that flatters your figure best. If you want to show off your arms, then go for a sleeveless version, or show off your back with a surprise cutout.
  • Keep it sleek with minimal add-ons. The reason why this look is such a showstopper is in large part because of its flawless fit, but also because there are no accessories to compete with it. Gwyneth reaches for a classic black clutch and pumps to complete the look, so the dress remains the focus.
  • Body-shapers can be your very best friend. We're not all blessed with Gwyneth's flawless physique (or personal trainer) — and that's totally fine. Undergarments that are designed to sculpt can help disguise what we're less excited to show off. Investing in a great pair of sculpting shorts or Spanx can change the way you wear clothes.
