While we’re mixed about Gwyneth’s acting career (loved her in Emma and Shakespeare in Love, were completely annoyed by her in Shallow Hal and View from the Top, and lukewarm on her Pepper Potts in Iron Man), we covet her effortless style. It doubtlessly helps that she is 6-feet tall and a total rail, so even in jeans and a white button down she looks flawless.
We love that Gwyneth is blogging and not in an let’s-air-all-my-dirty-laundry-Lindsay Lohan kinda way. On Goop, Gwyneth shares her recipes, gift picks and travel advice in a weekly newsletter. Last week she shared her favorite hotels and restaurants in LA—the city where she was born and partially raised. Here are a few of her picks that are on our must try list:
Shutters in Santa Monica—Gwyn likes the ocean views and oversized tubs
Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hotel Bel Air—Both are oldies but goodies
The London West Hollywood—She plans to stay at this newly spot (shown above) on her next trip out west.
Read on for Gwyneth Paltrow’s LA restaurant picks.
