A look at Gwyneth Paltrow’s viral courtroom style
Paltrow is currently involved in a civil trial regarding a 2016 skiing accident.
Gwyneth Paltrow is catching eyes with not only her trial updates but also her choice in courtroom fashion.
The 50-year-old actress is currently in a six-day civil trial regarding a skiing accident that took place back in 2016.
Paltrow has taken the chance to make statements with her wardrobe during her time in the court.
For her first day of trial, the ‘Iron Man’ star wore a high-necked shirt rumored to be from the high-end fashion brand Loro Piana. Her Parksville turtleneck is priced at around $150 thousand online.
During day two Paltrow stuck to a simple look again with a cream knitted turtleneck from her own brand, G Label by Goop.
She paired the shirt with a moss-colored coat from The Row, light brown pants, black lug-soled boots from Prada along with gold chain jewelry. Altogether her look for day two cost around $680 thousand dollars.
According to Milton Pedraza who is chief executive of the Luxury Institute, which is a research group in New York, Paltrow’s court wardrobe shows that she is trying to keep a low-key style to her outfits.
“These brands are easily recognized by members of their tribe,” Pedraza told The Guardian. “The wearer makes a statement without having to try to make a statement. Everyone who should know knows.”
What is the Gwyneth Paltrow trial about?
In February of 2016 at the Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Sanderson, 76, a retired optometrist, claims that Paltrow ran into him from behind while skiing down the resort’s beginner-friendly slope with an instructor.
Sanderson insists that Paltrow slammed into him with such force that he has since suffered from “permanent traumatic brain injury, four broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and disfigurement,” according to reporting by Law & Crime.
“Paltrow got up, turned and skied away, leaving Sanderson stunned, lying in the snow, seriously injured,” Sanderson’s original complaint stated.
“A Deer Valley ski instructor, who had been training Ms. Paltrow, but who did not see the crash, skied over, saw the injured Sanderson, and skied off, falsely accusing Sanderson of having caused the crash.” Sanderson has referred to the incident as a “hit and run”.
Paltrow’s countersuit claims that Sanderson is the one who ran into her and that he apologized after the crash, and she was able to leave the scene with minor injuries.
The countersuit also points out that Sanderson himself has admitted that he does not have a clear memory of the day in question. Since then Paltrow has also accused Sanderson of attempting to “exploit her celebrity and wealth.”
What does the lawsuit entail for both parties?
Sanderson was initially suing Paltrow for $3.1 million, but the amount has since been reduced to $300,000.
Paltrow on the other hand is only seeking one single dollar in damages and for Sanderson to cover her legal fees.
