Sheer Perfection

Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow has come and gone but her wardrobe choices have left a lingering impression, especially the 2  sheer looks she appeared in during her short stay in Hong Kong promoting her cookbook It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great.  Whether her cookbook recipes are delicious or easy are besides the point as the 41-year-old actress is looking good and probably feeling great too (because why wouldn't you when you look this good?!)

While it may take more than a few gym session coupled with well disciplined healthy eating to get your body all toned up like Gwyneth, we are more than ready to embrace the sheer frenzy that the actress has brought on! The trend is actually a lot easier to wear than most may think.  Take inspiration from some of our favourite streetstyles and key pieces from the season!
