Gwyneth Paltrow not only lives up to the greatest of style expectations, she exceeds them. "She's a burlap-sack babe," says Felicity costume designer Linda Serijan-Fasmer. "It's hard for her to look bad." For gala movie premieres, the 25-year-old star of A Perfect Murder and Sliding Doors often wears sleek gowns from designers like Dolce & Gabbana or Donna Karan that display her lean 5'9" frame. But even dressed down, she manages to convey impeccable polish. "She has this very goddesslike thing going for her," says Barneys' Simon Doonan. "She symbolizes restrained elegance." She also has a talent for accessorizing. Besides sporting Armageddon's Ben Affleck on her perfectly shaped arm, Paltrow usually completes her looks with just a simple scarf or barrette. Says model Emme: "She lets her natural beauty come out."
