Gwyneth Paltrow wows with tall fashion at Venice Film Festival POSTED BY LTS Holly 09.29.11
Oscar-winning actress (and one of our favourite tall girls) Gwyneth Paltrow was recently honoured with a Creative Arts Emmy for her role in the hit US musical comedy Glee. She also sparked some lively debate in the media this week, after discussing the topic of infidelity and revealing: “I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs.” The divisive topic came up because infidelity is a prominent theme in her latest movie, Contagion, which recently premiered at the 2011 Venice Film Festival. However, whilst the movie may be controversial, her choice of outfit for the red carpet occasion was a resounding success. Gracefully standing at 5’9, Gwyneth wore a blush organza floor-sweeping dress with an amazing bow-back, complete with matching clutch and platforms, accentuating her fabulous height. If you’d like to steal Gwyneth’s style, then take a look at Long Tall Sally’s collection of dresses for big and tall girls. Our range includes maxis, minis, statement pieces and casual knitted dresses, so there’s something for any occasion. Prints are big this season, so take a look at our Smudge Print Wrap Dress, which has a stylish brushstroke print in lovely autumnal colours – deep browns and lush burgundy. Shape-wise, this dress has an elegant waterfall wrap skirt and a flattering cross-over neckline – it’s also functional, with handy curved pockets. Team it up with a boyfriend blazer, tan belt and gold accessories for a glamorous daytime look. Another favourite that’s perfect for big and tall girls is our Check Jersey Dress, in a fabulous, bold, black and white statement print. Hugely versatile, with a flattering v-neck, this dress would make great office wear, but would look equally good for an evening out, paired with some chunky jewellery and a cute pair of heels. At Long Tall Sally, we specialise in designing clothes that accentuate long legs and larger proportions. For big and tall girls, there’s no better place to find the latest fashion trends, in cuts that deliver a great fit.
