Leggy, gorgeous, and eternally chic, Gwyneth Paltrow sure sets the bar high for Hollywood stars everywhere.

Showing off her legendary toned legs, Gwyneth nails that elusive combo of casual and elegant. This pearly white short suit is fashion gamble that definitely paid off for her, making her look a cut above your standard red carpet looks. The edgy black booties are a nice finishing touch.

Gwyneth isn’t particularly known for her penchant for color. She is often seen in chic and classic neutrals, which is why this orange number is extra special since it shows that she can pull off a bold look along with the best of them. This beautifully draped orange frock shows off her amazing bod in high style. The color clashing red booties completes this look with an unexpected hit of saturated color.

This is Gwyneth at her best. The red carpet is where her best and most wow-inducing fashion moments happen and this gilded gown is one of them. Donning head-to-toe gold might prove to be a sartorial challenge for some, but Gwyneth has always proved herself to be the exception to the rule. This full-on glitz and glamour is dripping in sophistication, from the jeweled brooch on her waist down to her ankle-strap stilettos.

This look is further proof of what we knew all along, a sleek black tuxedo jacket is a must-have for every fashionista. Here, Gwyneth wears it over a lacy one-piece and the jacket instantly adds a tailored touch and a fashion forward bravado to this look.

Simplicity always equal elegance and if you pull it off like Gwyneth does, it is sure to land you on the best-dressed list. This sparkly green gown is made even more radiant when you let it be the center of attention. I love how she simply styled it with a diamond statement necklace and poker straight center parted hair.

One of the most memorable Oscar dresses to date, this Tom Ford piece is one for the fashion books. This white gown-cape hybrid showcases Gwyneth’s love for both glamorous and simultaneously cutting-edge fashion. Again, her simple beauty look and minimal accessorizing makes this look extra winsome. Less is indeed more.

Gwyneth knows that a strategic cut-out and bold color blocking are more than enough to make you stand out. Paired with textured waves and sexy high heels, she proves once again that a great dress is more than enough to prove your fashion mettle.

Seriously, Gwyneth could be a poster girl/champion for the power and impact of simplicity, when done right of course. She does casual so perfectly polished. A cuffed blazer, classic white tee, boyfriend jeans, and strappy sandals is the formula for quick and easy chic.

Gwyneth knows that a little of smoky eye and statement cut-out heels are all you need to elevate a white dress. Loose waves and dewy skin finish off this look, and reminds us that your hair, makeup, and skin are a big part of looking put together.

I can’t round out this list without showing you Old Hollywood vintage glam Gwyneth. A blush toned gown with intricate detailing and a subtle mermaid cut makes for a showstopping red carpet statement. Red lips and diamonds complete this look with a classic glam flourish.

Don’t you just love how Gwyneth can make simple look extraordinary!
