Gwyneth Paltrow goes grunge with her latest Instagram post. The “Iron Man” actress shared a photo on the social media platform today that showed the actress in a chic, put-together look to promote her G. Label clothing line.

For the outfit, the Goop founder went with a white button-up shirt from G. Label that featured smocked cuffs juxtaposed to a high neck that had snap placket detailing on the left shoulder for a neat finish. She tucked the top into a navy blue and ivory grid-print skirt, also from G. Label, that had an A-line shape and hidden seam pockets. It also had a knot sash belt that helped accentuate her attire. The top retails for $375 and the skirt for $475.

To finish off everything, Paltrow threw on a pair of black Roger Vivier platform shoes. The “Viv” loafers had an oversized silver buckle on the front and height of approximately 1.5 inches. The shoes are made with patent leather and helped add ’50s-era punk inspiration. They’re available for $1,195 on Rogervivier.com.

As of late, Paltrow has showcased her ability to create statement-making outfits with ease. For example, she wore a rainbow sequin dress from Christopher John Rogers with blue velvet mules. Also, she has donned a red velvet suit with matching sandals for a sleek take on suiting for the Gucci Love Parade.
