    It's not like the letter is suggesting regular people can afford these clothes. Goop is an exclusive online designer site with celebrity collarations. It's similar to shopbop and net-a-porter.

    The target market for goop are elite people.

    IMHO it really has very little to do with fashion or "elite people," whoever they are, and more to do with keeping Gwenyth's name recognition up. I can't even remember the name of her last movie. There is probably a whole generation of kids who don't know who she is. She is competing with the likes of Kim Kardashian and I suspect among the younger generation Kim is winning. Other than a couple of movies, a famous mother, and a famous husband, what exactly has Gwenyth got to offer the world? Oh wait, didn't she win and Oscar?

    Okay, clearly I am not in her target market!

    Okay that almost makes me want to have a kid so I can name them that.

    I've already forgotten the jeans. All I remember is that they didn't look good on her. They were probably a fine look for someone else or with a different top, but the way it was presented. I remember that purse in the first pic though so I think that's a win for that outfit.
    I was thinking more along the lines of Cumquat Lemon Zest. What about Nashi Pear.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    And, to be fair, her role was Ironman's sort-of girlfriend. It's not like she's carrying the movie. But, still, she's in these super successful movies and she has an Oscar and a following (she has her website with lots of hits) so why shouldn't TPTB like her and give her work?

    Cumquat Lemon Zest is cool but not Nashi Pear. It's still too close to ordinary.

    And she has all those A list friends she loves to talk about to put in a good word for her. As insufferable as she appears to us, she knows how to play nice with the right people. She won't be like Adrien Brody, who ended up doing one of the few movies in recent memory that would cast Lindsay Lohan.

    #8, the one with the sweatshirt and moccasins that they call "sneakers", looks like something my former neighbor would wear. She also had dreds, a dog that was half-wolf who terrorized the neighborhood, drove a Grateful Dead van, and worked in a cafe that catered to goths and vampire wannabes.

    Coming soon to a rich neighborhood near you. Curious to see the pricing for that considering her gym with Tracy Anderson charges 900/month.

    The only idea that I hope people of any income level would get from looking at this is how *not* to dress.
    The information the website mentioned is referring too is called goop.com

    It's an very upscale designer good shopping website. Goop.com is is geared towards a very limited clientale. It's like haute couture.

    I don't get the Gwynth hate? But I don't follow any celeb news, really (the 450K wardrobe intrigued me, though).

    I like her as an actor, I think she is usually pretty good in the movies she is in?

    all that clothes would look silly on me. I like the leather jacket though.

    For some stupid reason, I get 'Self' and I'm still rolling my eyes at that comment. The article has some decent eating advice, but UGH at the constant 'I'm so amazing' comments.

    you just feel threatened
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    But not as much as before because she is now 40.

    I remember Anthony Hopkins talking about her and saying she and Jodi Foster were the most professional actresses he's worked with...She just has no concept of "reality" in terms of normal life.

    I love me Gwyneth. And she deserved her Oscar. Suck it, Blanchett.

    I don't know if I love her, but I certainly like her as an actress and loved her in SIL, where she glowed the whole movie. And I love her in the Iron Man series.

    And the more hate she gets the more I like her, which is partially how I became a huge fan of Lysacek, Meissner, etc....
