Gwyneth Paltrow showed up at the InStyle Baby Buggy dinner in the Hamptons looking very much like the 90s era version of herself in an unadorned, sleek black strapless column dress with her straight hair pulled back in a low ponytail. “Simple strapless column dress + ponytail + barefaced. This look is very old-school 90s Gwyneth,” monix confirmed.
Label Basher thought the 90s look should have stayed in the 90s. “People want her to go back to that. BORING. You have to evolve with fashion. She's still the same but it's 2011,” she posted.
Newprincesita wasn’t crazy about the look either. “I was going to say the outfit looked 90s-ish… but not in a good way. It´s a pet peeve of mine, but I don’t like flat sandals with evening dresses, or dressier dresses. Ines de La Fressange wears the combo also. I just don´t like it.”
Liberty33r1b completely disagreed. “I love this look on her!!!” she exclaimed. “Soo good to see.”
“I like it too,” dajrekshn agreed. “It’s simple Gwyneth, which I find refreshing after all the nude glitter dresses she wore throughout this year, plus its very summery.”
I think it’s a simple and chic summer look that Gwyneth wears well and it suits her. Everything (or nearly everything) comes back around style-wise and this actually looks fresh among all the flowy bohemian maxi dresses that we’ve been inundated with for the past few years.
So, is this a good look for Gwyneth or should she have left it behind when she dumped Brad Pitt back in the day?
