In the past few months, there's been great debate about the mini. Many style gurus have asserted it shouldn't be worn after 30. Several - including Stacy London - have suggested it should actually fade from wardrobes after age 28. And yet, this weekend Gwyneth Paltrow was photographed in a bitty plaid tartan, looking amazing at the age of 35. Granted, a lot of women don't have Gwyneth's movie star figure, and yet, a lot of women in their mid '30s do have amazing, gym-addicted bodies. Should they be restricted to pencil skirts and a-lines because of some style experts? We don't believe so, but we're also not the experts on dressing one's age, since nobody who works at Fashionista is over 26. But here's what we do know - we need this outfit that Gwyneth is wearing. And we need it now. WhoWhatWear Daily - can you help us?

Gwyneth Paltrow Breaks Down Her Oscar Look Step By Step
For most people getting ready for an event takes a few hours at most. But when you're a star on the magnitude of Gwyneth Paltrow, and the event is the Oscars, months of time, effort and politics can go into picking the right dress and ensuring the night goes off without a sartorial hitch. Today on Goop, Gwynnie gives us a glimpse at the months-long process that went into her looking fab in Tom Ford at the Oscars. Of course, the journey to the Best Dressed List begins with a dress. For Gwyneth, the responsibility of finding the perfect Oscars gown falls squarely on the shoulders of her stylist Elizabeth Saltzman, who says the job is a "long process that begins the moment when the nominees are announced and doesn’t end until the moment she steps onto the red carpet." Saltzman starts by calling certain designers (she usually works with two or three) and seeing if they have anything special in mind for the big event and making sure they aren't dressing anyone else too similarly. The designer, in turn, will send over sketches of possible gown options and Saltzman will "gently try to make tweaks that [she knows] will work for [her] particular client," keeping in mind her client's body, coloring, and confidence level.
