Gwyneth Paltrow is gracing the cover of InStyle U.K.’s January 2013 issue and we’re a bit perplexed. Not by the very Upper East Side Gossip Girl pastelness of the pink Jill Sander coat she’s wearing. It’s because of her face. She looks weirdly un-Gwyneth-like (*cough* airbrush *cough*) and it’s freaking us out a little. The cover story has designer Diane von Furstenberg interviewing the actress who, of course, talks about her exercise and diet regimen. “I was very strict for a while. I was macrobiotic for a couple of years, then I got pregnant and just ate ice cream,” she says. “What I’ve learnt is I want to enjoy my life and food is a big part of it. I love to cook and feed people. I cook every day. I don’t like sweets. My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine, or French fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger.” And our immediate response to that is, where does she put it? She’s also talking about the possibility of having more children, revealing, “My brain says, ‘Oh, I think I’m done, the kids are big now and I don’t want to go back to changing diapers’. But a part of me would love to have another. Of course, I’m old now!” We disagree. Bring back mom, Gwyneth! And let’s just take it easy on the retouching now, shall we? We actually like her face the way it is.
We’ve always loved Cameron Diaz (Has anyone seen the flawlessness that is Charlie’s Angels lately? It’s better than 3 of the four Spider-Man movies, we’d say!) and, uh, at least tolerated Gwyneth Paltrow (she has nice hair!), but our ears almost sealed shut when we started listening to the freestyle rap they busted out on Chelsea Lately last night: “You Chelsea! We heard that you got a brand-new studio/But we know you got on TV by being a ho.” Oh god, we’re dying. We’re passing on into the next life. We thought we had shuffled off this earthly coil when we heard Gwyneth rap on the Graham Norton Show, but we had no idea. We started to drift toward a bright light….
Then Gwyneth and Cameron brought up Handler’s relationship with 50 Cent, upon which we rocketed back to earth on a spaceship made of schadenfreude. “By the way, 50 Cent told us you like it rough,” they conclude, Cameron adding a few spastic thrusts for emphasis. Oh jeez, they went there! For all we know Gwyneth actually knows Fiddy and he did tell her all the gory details Chelsea’s sexual preferences! Everyone knows the second someone makes over $30 million, they are automatically scheduled a coffee date with GPal! Well-played, ladies. Not well-sung or anything, but still. Well-played.
Gwyneth Paltrow turns 40 today, and we’re pleased to report that with maturity, the actress has apparently reached a much more stable sense of fashion. In order to appreciate this, we decided to give you a look at Gwynnie’s not too distant past as the queen of style hits and misses. Eccentricity and edginess can really be the game changer when it comes fashion, but this tactic occasionally backfired for Paltrow. From weird, unshapely shoulder pads to long, velvet and silk skirts that she may have borrowed from a gothic witch’s closet. We hope she saved some of these dresses for Apple to play dress-up with, though. We hope Gwyneth Paltrow can take a stroll down memory lane with us, while we laugh off these fashion fails, and she can say, “What the hell was I thinking?”
It’s that time of the year again. The leaves are going to start turning soon. Wardrobes are too, to accommodate the changing seasonal trends. It’s a tricky path though, because there’s so much information out there. What we’ve done is gleaned the top 10 trends out of all the tomes of “what to wear” out there and put them on the list. More than anything, these are the 10 trends that our fashion-forward celebrities have been wearing out and about, on magazine covers, in campaigns and for various events and premieres.
2. Oversized Coats:Another massive trend this season, be certain that your coat is big enough so it looks voluminous and chic, but not big enough so that you look lost in. Make sure you’re wearing it, and it’s not wearing you. Ashley Olsen got it right on the subscriber cover of Elle UK!
3. Monochrome: This fall trend can be worn in many avatars. Celebrities like Rihanna, Chloe Sevigny and Victoria Beckham have channeled monochrome into different looks — funky, mod and classic. So can you.
4. Modern Country/ Americana: Taylor Swift‘s Vogue cover got this trend spot on. Oversized hats, chunky knits, tweeds have been revived into modern silhouettes. It’s the new nostalgia. Think lots of Rodarte!
Those pouty lips, that porcelain skin, that heart-shaped face…yeah, Once Upon A Time‘s Jennifer Morrison and Sebastian Stan are dating now, alright. They also look like they came out of the same womb! Did we just get too real on you? Of course, Jennifer and Sebastian wouldn’t be the first celebrity couple who, well, coupled with someone who looked shocking like him/her. Take a look at our other celebrity look-alike pairs if you don’t believe us. Of course, they’re all hot, so think of it this way: it’s not creepy, it just means they have good taste. And maybe it’s a little creepy…
Okay, so we’re not really that angry. Just jelly that Gwyneth’s Coldplay frontman husband thought to make such a gigantic romantic gesture at their Miami concert last week. Like, Chris and Gwyneth might as well be on top of the Empire State building at this point. Or he could have come to her doorstep in the pouring rain and carried her upstairs. Well, we guess it would be their doorstep, which makes it slightly less sexy since he would have just opened the garage door and walked up the steps…look, our point is that everyone should be stopping every concert to kiss their spouses. Challenge made, every other married musician out there!
We all get by with a little help from our friends, but celebs even more so. After all, Hollywood is a tough biz, and the only way to survive the ups and downs of Tinseltown is by surrounding yourself with a few true pals who will stick by your side in good times as well as during the bumps and slumps. We’ve long loved the enduring bond Oprah Winfrey and her BFF Gayle King share, and got teary-eyed this awards season watching Busy Phillips escort her nominated pal Michelle Williams to every event in town. And who can resist dudes like Tom Sturridge andRobert Pattinson and Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are always on hand to support each other’s personal and professional triumphs?
And then there are gals like Snooki and J-Woww, who have stuck by each other from day one in the Jersey Shore house. Through booze, bitch slaps, anonymous note-leaving, Vinny sex and drunken fights on the streets of Italy, they’ve never left each other’s side. The girls have a new reality show premiering tonight on MTV chronicling — what else? — the ups and downs of their friendship. In honor of their unbreakable bond, we’ve got 35 of the Most Adorable Celebrity Besties in the gallery below. Have a fave pair? Shout ‘em out in the comments.
The annual Met Costume Gala Ball is known as being the Oscars of the fashion world, at least in terms of A-List star wattage. We’ve got more sartorial analysis of tonight’s big night en route, but we wanted to these pictures of VH1 Celebrity style icons like Kristen Stewart, Rihanna (see more of RiRi here!), Beyoncé, and Emma Stone up for you to digest as quickly as possible. We’ve also got some incredible looks from the likes of the always divisive Gwyneth Paltrow, the radiant Florence Welch, and the comeback of January Jones (who, IRL, shares nothing in common with “Fat Betty”). Dig in now, but save some room because we’ve got more to come!
If you wanna turn heads (and headlines) on the red carpet, all you gotta do is wear is see-through outfit with no underwear underneath! This approach has been getting C and D-listers some badly needed press at least since Rose McGowan strolled into the ’98 VMAs wearing a net and a piece of string. But occasionally even Oscar winning superstars feel the temptation to walk on the wild side and step out in a planned “wardrobe malfunction.” Everyone loves attention!
We guess the revealing LBD Gwyneth Paltrow wore to The Conversation launch last night in NYC isn’t too scandalous in compared to some of the other outfits that we’ve seen out and about in recent weeks. But the commando-style flesh flash does seem to be something of a trend lately. From low names like Melody Thornton and Adrienne Bailon to huge celebs like Rihanna and Lady Gaga, much of Hollywood has been going bare lately. Check out the (VERY NSFW) gallery below and see what we mean!
Paul McCartney may be turning 70 this year, but “the cute Beatle” still has no trouble attracting the ladies! Dozens of stars turned out on Friday for the L.A. premiere of Macca’s “My Valentine” music video, which the pop legend directed himself! Kristen Stewart put in an appearance, but seemed to have left her rebel roots at home as she made an entrance in a super preppy skirt and blazer. We wonder what her rock ‘n’ roll godmother Joan Jett, who showed up wearing her trademark punky black leather, must have said. But that’s just the tip of the A-list iceberg. Gwen Stefani, Miranda Kerr, Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zooey Deschanel, Pam Anderson…will the hotties never cease? Beatlemania is alive and well, folks. Check out more in the gallery below!
