Gwyneth Paltrow Shows How To Make Pastels Edgy

We typically associate pastel shades with saccharine Easter eggs (at best), so were happily surprised when Gwyneth Paltrow stepped out rocking a gorgeous mint-hued cocktail dress by Cushnie et Ochs—making it feel both effortless and edgy. To cop this look, you need to balance the sweetness of the hue by opting for a piece with risqué cutouts, then finish with a cozy (cold-weather appropriate) menswear topcoat. As always, dewy glowing skin is the best way to pull off any daring ensemble, so be sure to exfoliate, moisturize and add a touch of illuminator to highlight your cheekbones. If an ab workout has been on your To-Do List for a few months, this outfit is sure to inspire some crunches. Gwyneth clearly has it all going on, making her RZ’s #OOTD—stay tuned this week for more gorgeous celebrity looks from the red carpet and beyond.
