Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP collaboration with Stella McCartney dropped — y’know, the one full of items that cost a month’s rent, if not more — we’ve been thinking: Perhaps Gwynnie doesn’t just have an appreciation for the “finer” things in life. Maybe she’s actually not aware that it’s possible to get these looks without ransoming your first born child in exchange. What a novel idea!
As such, we’ve decided that it’s time to help Gwynnie out a bit. Presented here are three astronomically expensive outfits composed entirely of GOOP items — and three comparable outfits for a fraction of the cost. And I do mean a fraction, by the way; one of the lookalikes is literally five percent of the price tag for the GOOP ensemble. Splurge or steal, the choice is yours — but wouldn’t you much rather NOT go broke in your efforts to look great?
