Gwyneth Paltrow urges Goop followers to splash $6,000 on designer T-shirts

Gwyneth Paltrow has encouraged shoppers to spend up to $6,000 (almost £4,000) on T-shirts available on her website Goop.

The 43-year-old actress selected her choice of the 11 best tops, which cost up to $350 (£230) each, and said women would 'want 17 of them'.

LA-born Gwyneth is estimated to be worth around $136million (£90million) and said earlier this year, 'I am incredibly close to the common woman'.

The text on the actress's website states: 'When you find the right T-shirt, you want 17 of them in your closet.

'And you want them to last forever and never disintegrate.'

It goes on to say that designers often stop making discontinue lines, and so advises shoppers to stockpile their favourites.

It introduces them as 'our favorite T-shirts right now - the ones we’re buying in bulk to see us through the next few seasons'. And they're all available to buy on Goop.

The T-shirts cost from a more reasonable $38 (£25) for a simple black tee with white stripes on the arms by Alternative Apparel, right through to $350 (£230) for a Mother of Pearl paget tulip jersey.

If shoppers take the advice to 'buy 17' of the latter, it would cost them a whopping  $5,950 (£3,930)
But justifying the purchase of the pricey Mother of Pearl top, the site says: 'This has the spirit of a T-shirt, but it's fancy enough to wear to a dinner party.'

Recommended tops include  plain grey number by NLST  $295 (£195)

The most expensive top is this $350 (£230)  Mother of Pearl paget tulip jersey. If shoppers took the advice to 'buy 17' of these, it would cost them a whopping $5,950 (£3,930)
