Gwyneth Paltrow recently donned the shortest skirt she has worn in over a decade.
In an article for her Goop lifestyle website, the actress/entrepreneur reflected on what she has learned about fashion and health in the lead-up to her 50th birthday on 27 September.
When it comes to style, Gwyneth insisted dressing your age is an outdated concept.
“I don’t think there are rules around when you stop wearing certain kinds of clothes at a particular age,” she declared. “I wore the shortest skirt I’d worn in 10 years just the other day: It was this old Chanel dress I found in the basement, and it worked. People should wear what they feel good in.”
Elsewhere, Gwyneth credited Ashtanga yoga and Tracy Anderson’s exercise classes for keeping her in tip-top shape, as well as abiding by a “very clean diet”.
“Last year, I cut down on alcohol and focused on lowering inflammation. What’s turned out to be best for me is paleo, so I’m grain-free, sugar-free, eating lots of vegetables and clean protein,” the mother-of-two continued. “Lots of fish, lots of olive oil. It’s fun that I get to do it with my husband (Brad Falchuk) - it works for him, too.”
