Gwyneth Paltrow chats about the things she loves in GOOP each week, whether she’s dishing on food, friends or fashion. But this week, she’s doubling her newsletter fun, teaming up with Alicie + Olivia‘s Stacey Bendet to talk summer style in Bendet’s 4AM Finds, a weekly newsflash full of the designer’s obsessions in art, fashion and more. So what do the ladies lust for this week? Paltrow calls a Baume & Mercier watch “bold and not too daring,” to which Bendet agrees. “I’m a Swatch girl, but this is gorgeous,” she says. A playful “Frida” dress from Alice + Olivia is “perfect for a summer party,” the actress gushes. A Comme des Garçons candle is Paltrow’s “current home scent,” while Olio Lusso oil “makes skin look and smell so good.” (“If there’s any chance of my skin glowing like yours I’m going to buy every bottle of this organic bliss,” Bendet jokes.) And of course, there’s Paltrow’s new cookbook, My Father’s Daughter, which Bendet describes as “a brilliant blend of story and substance.” Check out more of the ladies’ picks in today’s 4AM Finds; 10 percent of proceeds from sales of the featured Alice + Olivia items will benefit Bent on Learning, an organization that brings yoga to kids in New York City’s public schools.

So, this is a little random, but I've met Gwyneth twice since I started at my new job last month, and she is SO gorgeous and so so so sweet in person. Really down-to-earth. I was never a big fan, but I think she is great!! I work at the River Cafe in London -- she really eats, too!! Last Saturday night she came in and looked stunning in skinny white jeans.

^ So jealous of you. I've never seen her in London and I would probably freeze up.

Good to know G likes Alice + Olivia. I have my eye on this cute A+O top on Net-A -Porter.

I met Gwyneth once and saw her two other times. When I met her I froze and just starred at her. She said hi as she was so kind and sweet. This was at a Bloomingdales EL event a few yrs back.

@Michele, thanks for sharing, its so nice to hear some positive things about Gwyneth since so many people bash her (I am not talking about this place but you know all over the media).

^ Gorgeous. I love the drapping. It looks Lanvin-ish.
It could be Alice+Olivia or Donna Karen as she's pictured with the two above.

Godess! Gwyneth at perfection... I love everything about this look. She's slightly too tan in my opinion... but I love Gwyn with tan so it's ok! Lovely, lovely, lovely.
