Apparently putting on leggings quickly is a problem for some women. Who knew? In a dreamed up Diary entry from GOOP founder Gwyneth Paltrow in Vanity Fair, the actress addresses the issue: "Many of you have asked if I have any tips on how to get leggings on quicker. My in-house leggings guru advises rubbing onto your legs a paste made from five spoonfuls of extra-virgin olive oil, turbinado sugar, and coarsely ground fair-trade coffee. If you have any further problems, then next week I’ll be recommending a truly great creative-leggings clinic." [Vanity Fair]
