Gwyneth Paltrow's alternative to a designer Met Gala dress? A designer Goop collab hoodie, of course.
The Oscar winner wore exactly that while soaking up the California sunshine at the Brentwood Country Market with her daughter Apple on Tuesday, enjoying an afternoon out with her adorable offspring.
Paltrow, who recently split from hubby Chris Martin, was all smiles as she did a bit of shopping, appearing relaxed and comfortable as paps snapped pics of the blond stunner.
The 41-year-old beauty sported a Veronica Beard for Goop hoodie, which retails for a cool $895, as well as a pair of boyfriend jeans and trendy black shades. She wore her hair up in a casual ponytail and kept her low-key style accessory-free, looking gorgeous as ever despite her dressed-down appearance.
The photos of Paltrow's outing come on the heels of the star's confirmation that she will not be attending the 2014 Met Gala.
"Gwyneth will not be in New York and is unable to attend the ball," her rep told the New York Post.
Paltrow swore off the annual fashion bash last year in an interview with USA Today, slamming the fete as "un-fun."
"I'm never going again. It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all," the Oscar winner said.

The consciously uncoupled star later slammed last year's punk-themed ball in an interview with Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O.
"It sucked," she candidly revealed. "It seems like it's the best thing in the world, you always think, 'Oh my god, it's gonna be so glamorous and amazing and you're going to see all these people' and then you get there and it's so hot and it's so crowded and everyone's pushing you."
"I think we're all a bit old to dress up punk," Paltrow, who wore a modest hot pink Valentino Haute Couture Corolle gown, added. "I just went as kind of normal."
