Aging isn’t all that bad, and according to Gwyneth Paltrow “you feel pretty good” once you hit your ’40s. Now that’s something to look forward to, right?

While attending the La Perla fashion show in New York City on Thursday, Paltrow admitted that with age, she’s definitley gained perspective about herself.

The 44-year-old actress also opened up about when she feels sexiest. Plus, she talked about some of her fashion choices over the years.

“I try to be appropriate,” Paltrow said about her personal style. “Even when I was in my ’20s, I was never extremely proactive in the way that I dressed and it’s something that I’m mindful [of now].”

“I love when women feel confident and dress in a sexy way, but at the same time, you want to find a balance [between] what’s within the woman and her brain,” she explained. “So it’s a good combination of sexiness and intelligence that’s sort of the goal.”

Sexiness and intelligence sounds like a good combination in our books.

If clothing isn’t exactly your thing, Paltrow also chatted about some new items her lifestyle site, Goop, is carrying in honor of Valentine’s Day.

Okay, this is officially our favorite idea ever for Valentine’s Day. Having a “solo yolo” section fits in perfectly with our ideal Galentine’s Day celebration!
