The "Bent On Learning with Gwyneth Paltrow" charity event at New York's Stephen Weiss Studio brought out Goop, sacks, Beastie Boys and models. In other words, a typical New York City evening!













The Good:

You gotta hand it to the Goopster - when she's good, she's good.

Gwyneth's literary friend Christy Turlington looks typically elegant; the light shoe is a nice balance.


Anna requested that I include Beastie Boy Mike Diamond. And as we all know, Mike D, like Jimmy Walker, is "Dynomite." I like his stoic expression.

Julie Henderson's blue satin has a sweet, retro shape.


The Bad:

Donna Karan's getups become ever more audaciously "Sand People!"


Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet gets on board the sack bandwagon. And in case you're wondering, that's the least fun of all the bandwagons. It plays Kenny Loggins covers, out of tune.


I think what's a bit off about Kelly Rutherford's getup is the lack of balance: a little more coverage on top would have made the whole thing work better, surely.
