Gwyneth Paltrow: Online shopping is so simple

Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed why she prefers online shopping to in-store browsing.

The actress launched her Goop City Guides app at the Apple store in New York's SoHo earlier this week and shared how she feels about buying clothes online.

The 40-year-old finds herself drawn to websites that handpick designer items for her such as SSense.

"I do shop online more. I also think because I don't have a lot of time to go shopping, it's so great to go on a well-edited website, like SSense, for example, which is my favourite current shopping website," she shared with Popsugar. "They've done a whole stage of the curation already, so it's easy. You put your kids to bed, you have a glass of wine, and you're like, 'Let me see.' My husband is like, 'Whaaaat!'"

Gwyneth also attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala in New York City on Monday.

The blonde beauty wore an unusual floor-length hot-pink Valentino gown to the event, which surprised many as the theme was punk.

Despite the star-studded bash being one of the most glamorous fashion events of the year, Gwyneth enjoyed going home the most.

"Going home and taking my shoes off," she said, when asked for her highlight.

As she has grown older, Gwyneth enjoys purchasing food, rather than fashion, when she ventures to the shops. Gwyneth named Murray's Cheese Shop in New York City as her favourite bricks-and-mortar store.

"That store is my heaven. I love it. I'm obsessed with it," she gushed. "I go every time I'm in New York. They're like, 'Where's the stinkiest cheese we have? She's here!'"
