Gwyneth Paltrow wore a recreation of her famous red suit to the LA Gucci show

Gwyneth Paltrow stuns in all red at the Gucci Fashion Show

It’s a wonder more big-name fashion houses don’t do runway shows in LA. Whenever a designer/label decides to show in LA – like, Tom Ford, or in this case Gucci’s Alessandro Michele – there is sooo much interest, and they always get a huge celebrity turnout. Most LA-dwelling celebrities don’t want to make the journey to Paris or Milan for the shows. But they’ll come out for a fashion event if the runway is Hollywood Boulevard. That’s what Gucci did – they rented out Hollywood Blvd last night for a star-studded open-air runway show. Serena Williams, Lizzo, James Corden, Anjelica Huston, Vanessa Bryant, Billie Eilish, Miley Cyrus and Diane Keaton were just some of the celebrities in attendance, and I’m not even going to post their photos!

I just wanted to talk about a handful of celebrities in attendance. Like Gwyneth Paltrow, who has worn Gucci for much of her adult life. I thought Gwyneth was incredibly boring for recycling her Tom Ford-for-Gucci ‘90s red suit for this show. But no, she didn’t pull this one of her archives. This was Michele “reimagining” Gwyneth’s famous red suit. He reimagined it so hard it looks exactly the same. Here’s the suit in 1996. There’s no difference.

Gwyneth Palrow’s ex-husband’s girlfriend was also in attendance! Dakota Johnson has had a Gucci contract for years. I’ve never really been a believer in the Dakota + Gucci alliance, but I don’t think Gucci does her dirty. Mostly, it just doesn’t seem like a great fit for either of them. She’s so pretty, I don’t get why they gave her this ensemble.

Notably, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Sam Taylor Johnson were in attendance. They’re LA-based and have been for years, but this past spring there were rumors about some marriage trouble. Maybe the rumors were always crap, or maybe they’re recommitting to each other. Who knows.

    Looks like the piping was just changed to pink. What, her flat Tracy Anderson sculpted “stripper’s a$$” couldn’t fit back into the old suit?

    Ugh… she just rubs me the wrong way. Can’t stand her smugness & clueless privilege; it just oozes from every pore.

  2. Eurydice says:

    Huh, I’m usually pretty good about fashion, but I don’t remember this “famous suit.”

    • lucy2 says:

      I saw somewhere it referred to as her “iconic red suit” and I was like…huh? I don’t remember it either. I’m not big into fashion, but I do remember “iconic” looks.

    • Myjobistoprincess says:

      So famous nobody remembers LOL. The orginial person who said “famous red suit” comes from her team for sure. LOL They made the waist bigger, made the larger pants boot cut and added flaps to the blazer’s pockets. The ultimate idea is that she wants everybody to believe she still has the same body as whenever the 1st suit was worn LOL. Not! That is so Gwen. So cringe and embarrassing. I think the new “reimagined suit” is just going in the archives without anyone noticing. again. LOL


    The Taylor-Johnson’s (I think I got the name right) would have a troubled relationship, I think, given that she groomed him. It doesn’t get as much attention, I guess due to the genders here, but I’ve always felt bad for him. He was underage when they met, and I think I can criticize her predatory behavior without being sexist.

    • Sid says:

      Underage and had a troubled home life IIRC. And if IIRC again, she later made a comment about how he kept pursuing her even though she wasn’t interested. Megan Fox’s ex Green made a similar comment about how they got together. It seems to be the go-to excuse for these types. “This teenager just kept chasing after poor weak grown adult me and there was nothing I could do.”

    The hell is that makeup?

    • SM says:

      The suit is gorgeous, I would re-wear it and would not appologise for it. The one real difference is her sunburned face skin. Someone so obsessed with heath she obviously did not get the memo about the decent sunscreen.

  5. Amy Bee says:

    The only difference in the two red suits is the old one was baggier.

  6. Coco says:

    I don’t remember the red suit on Goop, but the original suit looked better .

  7. HandforthParish says:

    I remember that look as really cool back in the day. She *was* cool for a while, before she went all Weinstein-bought-my-Oscar on us.

    Interesting detail- the shoes. When I look at red carpet/Oscar looks of the 90s, however awesome some looks were, I’ve since realised that the shoes were *always* terrible. I’d forgotten how bad formal shoe wear was for about 15 years- we got clunky shoes, kitten heels and then stripper shoes.
    Looking back at Gwyneth’s original suit the shoes were as expected, hideous.

    For the record in the 90s my 2 pairs of ‘smart’ shoes were black chunky heeled loafer, and cream chunky heeled mules. Hideous.

  8. Rapunzel says:

    These two different suit pics emphasize how much Goop has f–ked up her skin. My god.

  9. lucy2 says:

    I don’t find either suit that exciting, and I usually do love a good suit on a woman.
    I kind of equal parts hate and love Dakota’s ensemble. It’s sort of rock star-ish.
    That’s a cool idea, having the runway show outside on the street (safer for covid) but they lose points for having Leto in it.

  10. Bella says:

    I remember that red suit and I loved it. Now it looks even better as the tailoring is on point. The only thing I don’t like are the shoes. I really don’t like a sandal with a long pant. I know someone else pointed out that they didn’t like the 90’s shoes. Well, I feel like they have come back–in a different way. The boots now are super, super chunky, and we will probably look back and think that these are awful too!

  11. Annaloo. says:

    Why are we giving her any attention for this. Who cares, Gwynnie…who cares

  12. BeanieBean says:

    It’s the pockets, the pockets are different. And possibly, maybe, the tuxedo stripes on the trousers are not there in the second wearing, but it’s hard to tell, I think maybe I see the stripe on the lower part of her right leg. And maybe he changed the waistband? Nobody’s waist stays the same size, no matter what you do.
    Oh, and Dakota’s tights are exactly the kind of thing I would have worn in junior high. I loved patterned tights. In junior high.

  13. Sof says:

    I would totally wear Dakota’s outfit but with some sort of blouse underneath. It feels like the upper part lacks something.
    Is it me or are velvet suits coming back? Lots of men have been wearing them lately.

  14. Barbie1 says:

    She was so cute when she was young. I too don’t understand her makeup. Her skin close to the hairline looks pale and was ignored lol. I also hate how she continues to iron her hair flat. She’s been doing it for years. Who convinced her that was a good look?

  15. jferber says:

    I really liked Dakota Johnson’s outfit and thought it looked great on her. I like her hair a lot, too. What I don’t understand is why she would get together for years with Goop’s ex, Chris Martin. If Goop once approved of him, I wouldn’t get within 10 feet of him. Also, doesn’t Goop micro-manage Dakota’s relationship with her ex? I couldn’t stand to go on vacations with the entire brood. Dakota is Hollywood royalty and deserves better.

  16. Roo says:

    Why does Goop’s hairline look so odd? As if her makeup stopped an inch below it?

  17. Bread and Circuses says:

    The only look of hers I even remember is that pink dress she won her first Oscar in, and that was mainly because the fit of the bodice seemed not good.
