    I was hoping she had done something more interestingly stupid this time. :lol: (I think she does this list every year and it's always outrageously expensive.)

    Oh, Gwynnie. At least pretend that you're suggesting that your readers find similar, cheaper looks rather than designer pieces. Ugly designer pieces. The only thing that looks good is the Victoria Beckham dress, and I guess the red Jimmy Choos - but they hardly look special enough to justify their cost.

    BTW, she has no idea how to model. Did she pick out those photos herself? :yikes:

    Those don't look too bad but I don't see why they cost so much. Hopefully they were all made locally by unionized well paid workers so it would be ok by me then. :p

    the shiny orange shorts with the red shoes and half shirt is about as tragic as it comes

    Ah, Gwyneth, leading the hatemobile away from Anne Hathaway like a faithful plover. :rofl:

    The last look makes me :rofl:. So you want me to spend how much to look like a college student?

    I only saw the look at the front of the article. It looked like something you could pick up at Target or Kohls. I liked it though I never wear anything polka dot-y because that look doesn't look good on me and I avoid white for many reasons. But I think it's a cute outfit. OTOH it's not ground-breaking and it really shouldn't cost more than $250 tops.

    I can't get over how awkward she looks in the photos. The poses are so weird. She isn't much of a model.

    Yeah, I finally figured out how to see them all (um, it's called SCROLL!) and she is not good at that. Is she always that awkward modeling or is it the photographer's fault?

    Anyway, I liked the Beckham dress too. And the red jacket (though again not to wear myself). Everything else was meh or horrifyingly bad.

    She has become so insufferable lately.

    ITA about the Beckham dress. It is the only thing I would wear. It is shocking that someone would pay so much money to be so badly dressed.

    However, there is justice in the world. Pippa has been dumped by her literary agent. So at least there's that.

    What I don't understand is that she was raised about as normally as you can be raised considering your parents are both involved in the acting biz. Her mom went to my HS which appeals to the upper middle class (not upper class) socially conscious lefty who isn't into designer duds and consciously avoids pretentiousness to the point that it's almost pretentious (if that makes sense). Of course that only means her grandparents had those values. But still... everything I hear about the family would lead me to believe they would raise down-to-earth kids who were in touch with reality.

    Blythe seems lovely. But I think it was Bruce Paltrow who spoiled Gwyneth, by Gwyneth's own admission.

    Some major fug going on there. :scream:

    I am torn between these and the white/red polka dot men's underwear shorts she seems to have borrowed from that Cold Play guy.

    Okay, that both makes me feel better and explains a lot. :D

    Also today I took Mini-Mac shopping to some trendy boutique and she wanted to spend $70 on a pair of shorts. I thought of this thread! (As I said NO!)

    They would be nice to sleep in, with a cute cami or a tee. However, Gwyneth looks like she intends to go outside in them.

    And lets not forget those shapeless jeans with yellow top and bright blue blazer. That's just wrong. Not to mention the transparent maxi skirt paired with another loose and shapeless top. The only thing decent here is the Victoria Beckham dress.

    I am no fashion maven, but those jean really leaped out at me as the most wrong thing of all. It's pretty hard to take a tall, lean, long-legged person and make her look stumpy, but those jeans succeed.

    I must say, it all makes me feel better about my apparel choices. I can look awful on a whole lot less that $450K.
