If you’re Goop curator-in-chief Gwyneth Paltrow, traveling to Paris for a series of glamorous outings is just a day in the life.

On Saturday, Paltrow and boyfriend Brad Falchuk arrived in Paris from Munich for an Instagram-perfect jaunt in the city of lights. The couple — who stayed in a landmark hotel just steps from the Champs Elysées — immediately headed off to the Vuitton Foundation, Frank Gehry’s stunning, glass-constructed building located in the city’s Bois de Boulogne neighborhood.

On Sunday, Paltrow reportedly stopped by Chanel’s flagship boutique on rue Cambon, where Coco Chanel opened her first boutique in 1910. According to Goop’s Paris travel guide, the boutique is a sight to be seen: “Spanning three lushly-appointed, black and white floors, the cap-toed ballet flats, quilted bags, and tweedy jackets are all connected by a sweeping central staircase.”

In the evening, the couple enjoyed an intimate dinner at Montparnasse’s Le Dôme restaurant. The legendary seafood brasserie — known for their famous sole meunière (which is gently cooked and crisped in salted butter) and millefeuille dessert (a classic French pastry made of layers of razor-thin puff pastry and sweet cream filling) — first opened in the early 1900s and has been a fashionable hotspot ever since.

The following day, Paltrow posted a photo of a favorite Paris museum: the Centre Pompidou, which she’s visited many times, beginning with a memorable trip with her father Bruce when she was eight. “The view from the top of the #centrepompidou is at least as stunning as the art contained within its walls. What a glorious place,” she wrote.

Paltrow had a decidedly stylish day on Tuesday. She attended Chanel’s Haute Couture show, cozying up to design titan Karl Lagerfeld before she and Falchuk had what one observer called a “romantic” dinner at Le Stresa.

The intimate, candle-lit Italian bistro is  yes, you guessed it among Goop’s favorites. Despite the fact that, according to the site’s guide, “it can get embarrassingly scene-y,” it’s an incredible spot for old-school Italian and one of Paltrow’s top five favorite Paris restaurants. Pro-tip: “Pasta is definitely the thing to order.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

She leaves her kids while she goes off to Paris. Bad mother!

@Shelly Maybe it’s the kids’ time to be with their dad and they wouldn’t have been with her anyway. Consider that.

She pays for nanny to be mom.

@Shelly Just because you take a vacation does not mean you are a bad mom. She was just in Mexico with both of her kids. My husband and I go away without kids at least twice a year. And yes, they be with their dad at the time.
