Gwyneth Paltrow Wears Skin-Tight Leather Pants But Is She Too Old?

Gwyneth PaltrowGwyneth Paltrow looks good in pretty much anything -- but even she makes the occasional style faux-pas. Witness her saying she should have worn a bra with her see-through goth gown that she wore to the Oscars a decade ago. I'm really not sure how anyone let her out of the house in that. But you have to hand it to Gwynnie, two kids later and she's still working out like a fiend and eating like a bird, which has allowed her to fit uber-snugly into these skin tight leather pants.


Gwyneth wore them to another Boss Nuit PourFemme event -- she's their spokeswoman. At one of their other events, she wore a skin tight leather dress, and I wasn't a fan. She looks better in this -- she's got long shapely legs and can definitely pull off leather pants. Hey, wasn't there an episode of Friends when Ross couldn't get out of his leather pants?

Anyway, I would have preferred she wear pleather

Gwyneth paired the pants with Nicholas Kirkwood heels and a black sleeveless shirt. My only complaint is her faux-tan -- I think it looks awful. So orangey. And I would have liked to have seen a little bling to offset all of that black. But, hey, who am I to question Le Paltrow's style choices?

And is it me or does she have black fingernails in this photo? If so -- not a fan. Gwyneth, you're a mom now. Stop with the black fingernails. You're 40. Stop with the black fingernails. Just stop. And, just for debate, is there an age where you should stop wearing leather pants? Gwyneth still looks great in them. And what about weight? Should there be a cutoff? Don't freak out, just askin'!

So, other than the black fingernails, I give her a thumbs up ... you?

Do you have leather pants?
