Gwyneth Paltrow is sleek and shiny with her platinum hair and long legs. This leading lady has held down roles from Viola in Shakespeare in Love to Rosemary in Shallow Hal to her endlessly popular role on the TV series Glee, where Paltrow plays fun loving substitute Holly Holiday. Roles aside, Paltrow’s look is always seamless and long, so it was no surprise when she graced the cover of Elle this month in an all black ensemble complimenting her smooth complexion and glowing. She is simply beautiful. Let’s check out how to get this glow with clean makeup and pieces for under $50 each.
Top: We always here that black is slimming, so try it out to look sexy and sleek like Gwyneth does in this cover. She has a long sleeve, military style top on with a high crewcut neckline that creates a clean focus on her face. Choose a top that is form-fitting but not overly tight and one that has interesting detailing because the color is solid. Look for accents like the buttons on this top or use an interesting material like lace. We chose one here that has sheer sleeves and a keyhole cutout on the back to give the simple color some texture.
