Why Gwyneth Paltrow Is The Cat Who Got The Cream

With a singing career to fit into her acting schedule and looking after two uniquely named children, Gwyneth Paltrow has less and less time to think about fashion.

However, the mother of Apple and Moses looks equally good casual as she does dressed to the nines.

Back in London after The Oscars, where the actress presented an Academy Award, she snuggled up in a cosy coat for dinner with her old pal Stella McCartney.

So what was on the small-talk menu for the friends who met through mutual pal Madonna?

Very can exclusively reveal that the glamorous pair were overheard chatting about Gwyneth’s new music career as they munched their way through a supper of fish and vegetables at London restaurant Scott’s.

Gwyneth has just signed a £700,000 contract to release a country pop record with Atlantic records.

The Hollywood actress has had offers from labels since she became an actress but only recently signed on the dotted line after enjoying doing a song and dance performance on US TV show Glee. She was also influenced by her character in the movie Country Strong in which she plays a fallen singer searching for a hit track.

The singing’s still in the early stages for Gwyneth who is yet to name any release dates but if she does as well as she is rumoured to have done on Glee there’s a chance that she could win some Grammy Awards in the future.

Then at least her husband Chris Martin can give her some Grammy tips as his band Coldplay has won 7 times.

We think Gwynnie would be the one with the fashion tips though as she always looks more stylish than her husband – even when she’s dressed down. Get her look with a cool, casual and chic jacket like the South belted suede jacket

Or try something slightly more formal but equally snug and cosy with the Savoir belted faux fur collar coat

The Twiggy suede swing jacket is a warmer colour but super snug

Gwyneth’s mid-length boots have some cool buckle detail just like the Rocket Dog rancher suede western ankle boots, in the sale for £52 instead of £75

Or try the South honey high leg buckle detail boots – they look like they’re out of the Wild West which is what Gwyneth will look like in her next film

Country Strong is out in the UK on 25 March. We look forward to hearing more of Gwyneth – literally!
