Gwyneth Paltrow’s skinny jeans & hipster look: cute, cool or goopy?


Here are some new photos of Gwyneth Paltrow not being the perfect mother in NYC yesterday. I mean, would a perfect mother ever LEAVE her children? I actually have no idea if Moses and Apple are in NYC with their mom, or if they stayed in London with the completely unnecessary nanny (unnecessary because their mom is so perfect!). Anyway, Goop is still filming Thanks For Sharing in New York, and although these photos are labeled “from the set” I have no idea if Gwyneth is wearing a costume or if these are her real clothes. Either way, doesn’t Gwyneth look thin? She takes that as a compliment, but seriously… she looks really thin all of a sudden. I remember her old body had hips, and it wasn’t so… Middleton-esque. Maybe it was seeing her in spandex (how peasanty) the other day, but I’ve been noticing Goop’s weight loss. She usually looks fit and toned. But in these skinny jeans, she has a touch of The Bosworth.

Also – today is Goop day! I sort of enjoyed the Goop-letter this week, but that’s probably because I stopped reading three paragraphs in. Goop is all about art this week!

I was connected to Maria Brito recently and thought she would be an ideal GOOP editor. I personally have so many questions about collecting contemporary art and this is Maria’s business—advising her clients on how to start an inspiring and affordable collection. Below, you will find all of her tips and great hook ups for GOOP readers.

And, as an aside, I interviewed the great contemporary artist Ellsworth Kelly for Interview Magazine out this month, which was a real high point for me. He is an artist who has been inspiring me since I was a kid. It was an honor. There is a little excerpt and a link to the interview below.
Love, gp

[From Goop]

You can read the rest of it here at Goop. There are pictures too, in case you just want to look at pictures. There’s one beautiful photo of London that I kind of want. As for the wisdom of Dame Gwyneth deigning to explain art to the peasants… I don’t know. I didn’t find it as offensive as when she recommended thousands of dollars worth of designer clothes for us to update our wardrobes. Goop gets a pass from me on this one!

    Regretfully have to say that she looks fine, like anyone on a city street.

    Her shades are awful and her hair looks like straw. Hate, hate, hate her hair! Always!

  2. gee says:

    Does the goop have a zit? On her perfect head?

  3. Eleonor says:

    It’s obvious she’s lost weight. She performed for Philipp Mountbatten remember? Now they are friends,and when her dear friend Philipp Mountbatten or his lovely wife Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor Mountbatten will introduce her to Catherine Elizabeth Middleton Windsor, Goop can’t risk to look fat.

  4. Rita says:

    While Goopy’s away, I hope Moses doesn’t take a bite of the Apple. That’s how all the trouble got started in the first place.

  5. Holly:) says:

    She looks hot, also it is nice to see she doesn’t care about that red spot on her face. :-)

  6. MM says:

    Those jeans are obviously too small as the zipper is trying really hard to stay up under a great deal of stress.

  7. Mella says:

    Its cute, she looks really young

  8. Leticia says:

    I’m starting to think she should be the subject of a musical, what with her indomitable spirit, cooking skills, skinniness, etc.

  9. tracking says:

    Outfit looks great. Like many actresses, she probably seriously diets before and during filming.

  10. dglandroy says:

    The jeans are too small, the jacket sleeves are too short, the “elf” shoes look cheap and the hair is a hot fried mess.
    I hope it’s for a movie and not her own choice. She has too much money to look that bad.

  11. Julie says:

    Nothing like the Bos to me. Look at her thighs.

  12. Melissa says:

    I’m seriously considering sending an email to the GOOP email address and nicely tell whoever reads the emails that G needs to stop bleaching her hair. Hopefully it will get back to her. lol I did like the GOOP newsletter today. While contemporary is not my favorite type of art work, I like any and all discussions about art in general.

  13. Dana M says:

    I liked the GOOP newletter today too.
    However, the skinny jeans, no.

  14. blonde on the dock says:

    Aside from the bullet on her head she looks hot!

  15. KateNonymous says:

    She looks just fine, although I do wonder why she periodically feels the need to go all gritty and edgy when it doesn’t match her persona. But if I just saw her without recognizing her, this look would be fine.

  16. Rita says:

    btw- That’s not a zit. It’s an inflamed beauty mark! Please show her some compassion ladies. Those things can really hurt. I’ve got one on my bum….but it’s not a beauty mark.

  17. LS says:

    Doesn’t matter to me what she wears, more what comes out of her mouth that makes her ugly.

  18. kieslwoski says:

    I love the outfit minus the sunglasses and boots.

  19. spinner says:

    She really looks great. Her hair is looking thicker.

  20. ladybert62 says:

    She does not look happy in those pictures.

    What awful thing has she done to her hair – it was nice but now it looks like straw!

    Wish I was that thin – sigh!

  21. MJ says:

    I pretty much wear this outfit every day, minus the stupid sunglasses, and my jeans aren’t so low-rise and skinny.

  22. Judy says:

    NOTHING wrong w/ her thighs, but I HATE her…GOOPY.

  23. Bonfire Beach says:

    It looks like the red mark may be some sort of injury. If you look closely the thing in her hand looks like one of those reusable ice bag-type things. That could explain why she looks so unhappy.

  24. Kat says:

    Nice T&Co padlock, you douche. Way to be hipster.

  25. Sue says:

    I agree that the jeans are too small. When the zipper can’t lie flat, it just looks all wrong. The hair has never been right.

  26. Rhiley says:

    Yes, I do think that Goop does have a zit but it is because her most dear wonderful friend,Mario Batali, kept her up last night drinking grappa and eating the most delicious, delicate, yet rich chocolate mousse ever. Goopy regrets that she indulged but it was just so good and she couldn’t deny Mario her companionship. But no worries because Fishmonger has the perfect cure for acne– some kind of organic and all natural fish sperm that is extracted from the little fishies in the most humane way possible. Just dab a little and then drink 3 tablespoons of Fishmonger’s salmon oil with extra omega 3 and the zit will be gone in a matter of a day.

  27. Jojo says:

    If you ask me, she’s been taking classes at the JustJen fashion school for dorks. Her mentors would give her a B: she needs a fedora for an A.

  28. smh says:

    pleaaaase let this hipster shit end already

  29. Quest says:

    OMFG, how dare that blemish grace the face of the Highness Goop. It should know better.

    “Summon all the king’s horses and all the king’s men to put Goopy back together again”

  30. Swiss says:

    He hair looks horrible, just fried.
    I don’t like her boots and the sunglasses.
    The rest is blah, maybe trying a bit too hard to look younger than she is.
    I love the GOOP newsletter, especially when she has healthy recipes on.
    I grew up eating really healthy in Europe, so I don’t understand why some people seem to hate her for it.
    There is nothing wrong with organic food and beauty products, better than using chemicals and ending up with cancer.

  31. podzol says:

    I can’t be the only one to think that the grungy rockster clothes look unnatural on Gwyneth — she looks best in her wasp-y, hamptons uptight clothing cause that’s who she is at heart ;)

  32. smh says:

    what a try hard. trying to act like she just don’t care, what a bad ass hip chick. just lol @ her acting. lol this post made me laugh (and nearly hurl)

  33. annaloo. says:

    OH MY GOD! She looks like she belongs in Nelson!!!

  34. Esmom says:

    She looks like she’s trying a bit too hard. And while she’s thin I don’t think she’s anywhere near Duchess Kate territory yet.

    @35, you nailed it, she is looking very Nelson-esque. Yuck.

    And I’m sorry but in this economy I think it’s pretty tone deaf to talk about collecting contemporary art. (Recipes are OK since people do still have to eat.) My husband recently lost his job and with two kids and a mortgage the closest I’m going to get to any art in the near future is at the museum. On their free day.

  35. Jackie says:

    god, i hope this look is for a movie. what a hipster doofus.

  36. Lucky Charm says:

    @ Bonfire Beach,
    You could be right, it does look like she’s carrying a first aid kit ice bag. Maybe she was trying to zip up her jeans, and with the force to close it all the way she lost her balance, fell and hit her head on the dresser.

    Did she grab Chris’ jeans, sweater and leather jacket by mistake when she packed? They all look too small for her.

  37. J O'C says:

    I love her outfit but she looks really she’s feeling very sad. Really sad. It makes me want to make her some soup or something.

  38. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Honestly I have never found GP attractive, even when she was younger and less of a c&*t. I never thought she was ugly but she just looks like a plain Jane to me, I see extremely beautiful women walking around in the grocery that stand out more than she does even on the red carpet.

  39. Aviatrix says:

    Grow the fuck up. Surprised that she allows herself out of the house like this, with her high brow bullshit breeding and all.

  40. Jilly says:

    Haters! It’s jeans, leather, boots, silver jewelry, statement shades. Timeless sh*t.
    Hair’s bad tho.
    I wear this look 24-7, and have since my 20s. I’m 45. And I’m not GOOP sized. Am I lame?

  41. bk says:

    It’s got to be for the movie. The Goop would never let herself out of the house with pink-rimmed aviators and her belly sticking out between her too low jeans and too high sweatshirt. Looks cheap.

  42. Az says:

    Jennifer Aniston wishes she could look like this.

  43. kiki says:

    From the neck up she’s a hot mess — very Tara-Reid-like, between the zit, straw hair, ugly shades and confused/tired/sad expression.

    From the neck down though — perfection. Love the hipster look. She’s the kind of skinny I strive for.

    But still she annoys me like crazy.

  44. Sara says:

    I love how her zipper is pulling apart, I thought that only happened to peasants.

  45. Me says:

    That’s not a hipster look, that a rocker look- more English classic rock version.

    She is way too skinny, though. Anorexia borderline if not totally eating disorder.

    I like that style, save but the skinny jeans.
    It’s not falttering to anyone.

  46. Kathie says:

    This has to be for a movie. Doesn’t seem like she would normally dress like this. She can definitely pull it off, though, esp. at 37 years years old. I hope to look that good at 37.

  47. Gretta says:

    Ugh, the sunglasses are hideous! Truly a shame. The jacket is too boxy it makes her look like a hammer. Skinny legs, boxy top. Or like an ice cream cone. She’s still so beautiful. I like her bleached out hair. She looks like a mom. Lose the jacket and the shades.
