Gwyneth Paltrow’s Best ‘90s Fashion Moments

She’s undoubtedly the most stylish from the decade.

When it comes to ‘90s style icons, we can’t leave out Gwyneth Paltrow, retired actress and now-CEO of the wellness brand Goop.

Throughout the throwback decade, all eyes were on Paltrow. The Hollywood star was in one of the most iconic relationships with actor Brad Pitt and starred in countless blockbuster films, like The Talented Mr. Ripley, Great Expectations, Emma, and Shakespeare in Love (just to name a few). But she was also known for her effortlessly chic red carpet looks and off-duty appearances that still remain timeless to this day.

Nearly three decades later, her minimal aesthetic — from velvet suited looks to slip dresses and all-black ensembles — continues to infiltrate everyone’s mood boards, inspire today’s trends, and even boost her own brand’s fashion line G. Label. Ahead, check out some of Paltrow’s best looks from the ‘90s.
