Sequins for summer? Now that’s what we call "groundbreaking."

Whether or not Miranda Priestly would approve or not, Gwyneth Paltrow just proved that summer diamantés are in full force, and not just for party season. The actress-turned-Goop-founder proved it by stepping out yesterday in a fully encrusted Swarovski crystal gown during Milan Fashion Week

Gwyn paired her glamorous, figure-hugging ensemble with a set of crystal-encrusted strappy heels and a statement necklace made from multiple glistening Swarovski crystals.

For glam, she let her blonde locks roam free, subtly waved to mimic Rita Ora’s beloved mermaid hair look. Letting the dress do all the talking, the business mogul opted for a simple glossy lip, glowy skin and a light slick of shimmery eyeshadow.

Joining Gwyneth at the event was Jessica Alba, who sported a sleek blazer mini dress, Euphoria’s Barbie Ferreira, who opted for a plunging neckline gown and actress Laura Harrier who made waves in a silver midriff cut-out look. 

Crystal and sequin embellished ensembles have been doing the rounds on red carpets around the world over the last few months and Gwyneth isn’t the only famed face bringing the style back.

Gwyneth’s sparkly look comes as a surprise to many as she’s usually known for sporting tailored monochrome suiting, pastel shades or effortless Hamptons-mom-core looks when off-duty, recently sporting a black fitted half-sleeve shirt paired with velvet trousers to attend the Armani SS24 show. 

Although it’s rare to see crystals and Gwyneth together, we can’t help but wonder if this seriously stylish union might be the beginning of Gwyn’s new style identity.
