Gwyneth Paltrow's courtroom looks have taken social media by storm.
Insider spoke to former celebrity stylist Sandra Okerulu about Paltrow's courtroom fashion.
She said Paltrow's looks have gained so much attention because she's wearing comfortable attire.
For the past two weeks, Gwyneth Paltrow has been in court in Utah, fighting a lawsuit from a retired optometrist who claims the actress crashed into him on a beginner slope at Deer Valley Resort in 2016.
Paltrow's courtroom looks have taken social media by storm, with The New York Times even labeling it "courtcore."
Insider spoke to former celebrity stylist Sandra Okerulu, who weighed in on Paltrow's courtroom fashion and the message she might be trying to convey to the jury and the world at large.
Okerulu said she believes Paltrow's style choices have gained so much attention because she's not conforming to the usual business formal attire one would expect a celebrity to wear to a trial.
"On average, when celebrities are getting ready to go into a courtroom, they're wearing the sharpest suit, the tailored pants, a really cinched dress suit. She didn't do that," Okerulu said.
Instead, Paltrow's outfits have skewed more comfortable, while still being dressed up and conservative for the courtroom. Okerulu noted the rolled up sleeves on her suit jacket here, and the fabric that seemed more relaxed than typical suit material.
"She's not trying to impress the jury," Okerulu said. "I think Gwyneth Paltrow is really focused on just being herself. It's just another day in the office."
Okerulu said Paltrow's choices may have a long lasting impact on how people dress for court. "You don't have to recreate your whole image to prove your innocence. You can just be yourself."
