Th Gwyneth Paltrow ski trial has severed up plenty of drama
We doubt Gwyneth Paltrow ever thought that a trip to an upscale ski resort in 2016 would, seven years later, become one of the most closely watched – and meme-able – celebrity trials of all time.
And yet it’s all so Gwyneth Paltrow.
For the past week and a bit, the trial over the Oscar-winner’s collision with 76-year-old retired optometrist, Terry Sanderson, has been live-streamed – and, thanks to starstruck (and bumbling) lawyers, utterly bizarre lines of questioning, quotable soundbites, indecipherable doodlings, expensive outfits and lots of blinking – has fed the internet’s insatiable appetite for memes.
Over to you Twitter…
From the off, we were obsessed

Who thinks that these 75 boxes by the defense table aren’t actually files for trial, but are filled with #goop garbage potions and colon teas and bone broth recipe gift bags for the witnesses? #GwynethPaltrowtrial#GwynethPaltrowpic.twitter.com/0NH2iDuqJE

If Goop doesn't send out a newsletter that's got some sort of "6 looks to wear when you're on trial but it really doesn't matter" shopping guide , i will loose my gd mind.

Some already think they know...
Unfortunately the judge has decided if you ski into Gwyneth Paltrow you become the new Gwyneth Paltrow. Santa Clause rules
