All kinds of celebrities showed up this weekend to speak at the Airbnb Open in LA. I checked out the website and I think the event was supposed to be about travel lifestyle? This is why Gwyneth Paltrow was invited. She’s lifestyle. And she travels a lot. And during her session she joked that “Xanax and alcohol” were the essential items to bring along when you travel with kids before clarifying that, “No, my kids, actually, they’re great travellers” and that she has a great time with them on the road because “I love seeing things through their eyes”.

According to Page Six, although G spends a lot of time abroad, she was also asked to share her thoughts on what’s going on at home, in America:

“It’s such an exciting time to be an American because we are at this amazing inflection point. People are clearly tired of the status quo, and … it’s sort of like someone threw it all in the air and we’re going to see how it all lands. It’s very important for me, personally, now more than ever, to create a community and to remember the humanity of everybody and to create love and … understanding. The most amazing thing for me about this election is I felt … ‘I don’t understand the opposition well enough at all.’ I’m not going to tell you what side I’m on, but my big takeaway was, ‘I really need to open my mind and understand better because I don’t.'”

To me, that sounds like she voted for HRC. But she can’t say it out loud, because, well, there’s no doubt that her customer base is at least partly “status quo”, even though, given her remarks, Gwyneth Paltrow, evidently doesn’t consider herself to be a member of the “status quo”, which … um… ohhhhkayyy. I’ve always thought of Gwyneth Paltrow as an outsider, haven’t you?

PS I love this outfit so f-cking much. As an outsider, G always manages to find the best black blazers. And the length of these pants is perfect. And those kicks are super cute.
