Normal people might spend the better part of an evening fantasizing about having a movie-star wardrobe, but do celebrities ever wonder what they'd wear if they had a 9-to-5? Gwyneth Paltrow does, apparently, and the findings are predictably...interesting. In the most recent newsletter from her lifestyle site GOOP, the actress has teamed up with Net-a-Porter to bring you workwear looks from the imagination of a Hollywood princess...imagination being the key word here.

One "good look for the office" includes five-inch Maison Martin Margiela open-toed booties and a leather pencil skirt. Another involves a curve hugging mini-dress (just throw a blazer over it!). And then there are the Jimmy Choo stilettos she recommends for "a day full of meetings." While these looks are undeniably chic and might actually be appropriate in some work contexts (Vogue, perhaps?), they also confirm our suspicion that Gwyneth has never set foot in a normal office for longer than it takes to make and consume a vegetable smoothie. That said, how cute is it that she spent some of her time fantasizing about the life of a regular person? Consider us even, Gwyneth.
