Gwyneth Paltrow not only dished about drugs in the March 2009 edition of British Elle, but she did it wearing a shirt with gargantuan puffy shoulders from the new Spring 2009 Dolce & Gabbana collection.
The 80s made their comeback last year when we saw structured micro shoulder pads, but these colossal tufts truly look as though they were inspired by football linebackers. Good thing Paltrow’s so thin, otherwise she could risk being mistaken for a Chicago Bears player.
Then again, if I had stylists, art directors and photographers from Elle magazine fussing over me, I’d probably be shimmy into just about anything, including football fashion.
