"A shiny white suit with shorts? Aargh. Did you know that we are all supposed to be wearing white this summer? Think of the dry cleaning bills! Think of all those toxic dry cleaning fluids seeping into the gullets of dolphins! Gwyneth Paltrow earlier this week sported an outfit that was not only white, it was a shiny shorts suit.
