A summer wedding in the Hamptons? How Sex and the City of you, Gwyneth Paltrow. Page Six reports that Mrs. Goop herself will marry fiancé Brad Falchuk at her Hamptons home (er, mansion) after Labor Day.
We don't have many details yet, but if we learned anything from her engagement celebration, the wedding will probably be a massive Hollywood affair. (The couple had over 400 high-profile guests at the April soirée, and Paltrow's bachelorette celebration was attended by Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts, Karlie Kloss, Cameron Diaz, and Kate Hudson.)
A post-Labor Day wedding also poses an important sartorial question for Ms. Paltrow: Should she wear white? Traditionalists would advise against it, however, we’re going to argue that the 45-year-old mom of two, entrepreneur, Oscar-winning actress, can do as her happily-in-love heart pleases.
Should Paltrow want to flip the script on white, we have a suggestion: pink. Hear us out. If you've paid close attention to her style, you'll have noticed the actress has long had an affinity for the flirty hue.There’s the Calvin Klein slip she wore to pose alongside her ex boyfriend Brad Pitt at the 1996 Oscars, plus the Ralph Lauren design she wore to win her first Academy Award in 1999. At the 2015 Oscars, she wore the one-shoulder Ralph & Russo dress with that massive ruffled flower—now unforgettable.
That said, she can't go wrong should she opt for the traditional bridal color, either. After all, no one can wear white like Paltrow. On the red carpet, she’s delivered iconic fashion moments, including the gorgeous Tom Ford design she wore at the 2012 Oscars that featured a cape not even Iron Man could match. Other notable white dresses have included a sexy, high-slit Emilio Pucci number, a lady-like A-line Lanvin frock, and a structured look with long sleeves, courtesy of Mr. Ford.

Of course, this isn't the first time she's walked down the aisle. In 2003, she wed ex-husband Chris Martin, from whom she consciously uncoupled in March 2014. (Sadly, photos from the nuptials are nowhere to be found.) And she's also played the bride in films like Emma, where she appeared as a romantic, Jane Austen-approved newly-wed (above).
As for who should design her dress, we'd place our bets on Valentino, with whom the actress has had a close relationship over the years. For her summer wedding, perhaps she’ll tap Mr. Garavani for a custom look? Not subtle at all, much like we expect this wedding to be.
Below, a look at the white—and pink—moments that could have gotten her down the aisle.
