Celebrity Style on Trial: Gwyneth Paltrow’s high heels and short skirts


It’s been quite the week for Gwyneth Paltrow: a week in which both her hems and her heels have been higher with every passing day. Our guess is that she woke up one morning and thought, "You know what? I’m HOT. I’m going to start dressing like it." Now, the "short skirt and high heels" rule is one which is drummed into many a young girl at an early age, and basically states that the height of your hem should be inversely proportional to the hight of your heel, so the higher the heel, the longer the skirt. Simple.

Gwyneth here is in clear contravention of that rule, but somehow we can’t bring ourselves to call her on it, because here’s the thing: she is hot. And we actually think she’s making this look work for her, partly by having legs to die for, but partly by dint of the "Yes, I’m wearing high heels and a short skirt. SO?" attitude with which she wears it.

We’re not seeing we’d want to see everyone follow Gwyneth’s example, here, but we do think she looks like she’s really enjoying her shoes right now, and well, who can blame her?

What do you think? Is Gwyn a fashion criminal or is she looking too cool for (fashion) school?
