After a busy week promoting Mortdecai in a number of stylish jumpsuits, Gwyneth Paltrow has decided to take a break from the red carpet. But she’s still giving us some outfit inspiration … on the beach in Punta Mita, Mexico.
Yes, jumpsuits have become as popular as LBDs in Hollywood, but there is one star in particular who can’t get enough of the trend — Gwyneth Paltrow. In fact, the actress seems to prefer formal onesies to formal dresses. Let’s investigate.

Our dress code to the super star-studded amfAR Inspiration Gala in L.A. probably got lost in the mail, which is why we didn’t get a chance to check out the wardrobe instructions. But if these stars’ outfits are any indication, the dress code was “Creative Skin-Baring,” and they got the message loud and clear. In fact, it appeared they were all in competition to outdo one another in that arena.

It would be hard to have a better summer than Gwyneth Paltrow is having right now. She has been enjoying wide open spaces, cooking photogenic, fresh meals, launching her own boutique — and modeling in some gorgeous clothes for her latest Hugo Boss ads. We got an exclusive look at the behind-the-scenes images, and it looks like all that hydration is paying off — she’s as radiant in her off-duty moments as she is in the glamorous ad.

It’s rare to walk into a clothing store these days without spotting a crop top or cutout dress. Skin-baring trends are at an all time high this season, so you’re probably paying more attention to your ab exercises at the gym. Enter Tracy Anderson, fitness guru to the stars, who shares the best way to get a six-pack — and it’s not what you think.
“Don’t go for crunches of any kind,” Anderson tells PEOPLE. “Instead you need to flip yourself over and be in a plank position to really engage your core. Try alternating knee tucks in a plank position. You’ll see more results that way, then trying to achieve from the back up.”
But the biggest fitness tips she gives her celebrity clients (including her close pal Gwyneth Paltrow) is finding a routine. “There is not a 10-day, bikini-ready program [that really works],” she explains. “It’s your lifestyle. You are how you move and perform. If you don’t show up constantly the body can’t understand how to promote change. You can trick it and you can starve it with juice cleanses. You can do all kind of things. But all of my work creates balance, it’s sustainable and healthy for you.”
Anderson says her curated line of hair accessories for Scunci helps foster that “healthy lifestyle” mentality.
“I have this photo on Facebook that my son took, and I’m wearing all these bright Scunci accessories on my arms and in my hair, and literally everyone from Gwyneth to family was asking about the accessories,” she says. “It’s a fun collaboration for me, because I don’t really like to put myself out there and endorse things unless I believe my audience can improve their lifestyle with it. I love the energy the pieces bring forward, and they’re all super durable.”
