Gwyneth Paltrow for Harper’s Bazaar Magazine

Posted on February 02, 2012

Some gal who bears a passing resemblance to Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover of Harper’s.

 

Gwyneth Paltrow featured in the March 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine photographed by Terry Richardson.

Pretty girl. We wonder who she is. Must suck for her to look almost, but not quite, like a famous Oscar-winning actress. Near-Gwyn is as good as real-Gwyn at dropping the slightly irritating sound bites, though:

On aging: “I’ll take my wrinkles. I don’t like the Botox thing.”

On her diet when she’s not detoxing: “I eat whatever I want. I like bread and cheese and wine, and that makes my life fun and enjoyable. I don’t really like eating that early, so I usually just have coffee and then a couple of bites of their leftovers, like granola and yogurt or scrambled eggs.”

On her brand: “Everything I’ve done has been completely organic, and that’s why the brand is a strong brand, because there is no ulterior motive behind it.”

On her husband, Chris Martin: “He’s very communicative, which is rare for a British man. If I’m in L.A. for three days working, then my husband does the school run; it’s always one of us.”

On handling the kids: “If I’m in L.A. for three days working, then my husband does the school run; it’s always one of us, although they do have a nanny for the children. She’s French, so she’s teaching them French, and their previous nanny was Spanish, so they’re fluent in Spanish.”

 

We think it’s great that Gwynnie is pitching a sultry look. Some of these dresses look pretty amazing on her.

Lanvin dress, $4,165. Charlotte Olympia heels, $1,195. Ring, Paltrow’s own.

 

Dress, $3,550, and shoes, $1,725, Versace.

 

Dress, $3,000, Anthony Vaccarello. Sandals, $1,350, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci.

 

Dress, $2,985, layered tops (worn under), $1,710-$2,160, and sandals, $1,350, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci.

 

Gown, $11,400, and shoes by special order, Alexander McQueen.

 But this is the first picture that actually looks like her.

 

Dress, $2,640, Blumarine. Necklace, $9,500, Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co.

Are we being picky? On paper, all this sultriness should work, but then we look at that face and it just looks … odd to us. Her face looks too made up and her hair looks like a wig.

It’s funny. It seems like editors and stylists always want to do this to Gwynnie; make her over. But we think her looks and persona (blonde, thin, and WASPish) can only be interpreted so many ways before you’re getting too far away from what makes that look appealing in the first place. Great pictures; great dresses; but only a couple times does she actually look like herself.

    The McQueen is my favorite on her. The rest are fine, but I’m not calling my mother or anything.

    She looks a lot like Heidi Klum in some of these.

    She looks amazing. Not any different from her real self than any other celb I think. Sadly her interviews always leave me wanting to close the magazine. I don’t think she’s nearly as interesting as she thinks she is.

        In the interview she talks about the fact that she’s doing some sort of detox diet because when she wakes up she can feel something wrong with her adrenal cortex. It was all very odd in that typical, annoying GOOP way.

        • Anonymous

          Don’t forget she’s on detox 12 weeks out of every season, which leaves about a day and half for her to indulge in stray bites of her kids’ leftovers. She’s really livin’ the life.

    I’m right there with you, T Lo.  I was wondering who drew these pictures.  The first photo looks like they shrunk her face and put it on some other body/hair creation.  Very weird set of photos purporting to be of GP.  And she strikes me as very much ‘not’ a 40s glamour blonde hair gal.  Know what I mean?

    • Anonymous

      And that photo of her lifting up her skirt seems strange and a little bit desperate. But- I love the cover that excludes her face (that sounds mean, but not cause it excludes her face, LOL) magazines need to step it up with their covers like this more.

    Love Gwyneth (and I don’t care who knows it). Hate Terry Richardson (and I don’t care who knows it). He’s a hack photographer with a limited range and questionable moral/ethical compass.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KEYJDIENR5MRK2NXJYKNOLWDFE Alexandria

      I feel exactly the opposite :) Hate Gwynyth (though in all fairness it’s probably just because my high school drama teacher made us watch “Shakespeare in Love” religiously) but I love Terry (ignoring the pervert claims), I feel like he can take celebrities I’ve seen photographed millions of times and make them look different and exciting… This shoot isn’t a great example of that.

    • Eva Whitsett

      I like Gwyneth, and something I like about her is in her newsletters she often posts pics of herself wearing no makeup, with her hair not done. She’s still pretty, but nowhere near perfect, in those pictures, and I like that she’s willing to be seen that way.

    • Anonymous

      Considering the number of sexual assault and harrassment claims against him, and the fact that he seems to be proud of his exploits, I’d say that’s a very generous assessment of his character. I hate that they still hire him. Just because nobody’s managed to put him behind bars yet doesn’t make it okay to send more teenaged models to his lair.

      As a photographer, he seems to know how to overexpose photos and tell women to hike up their skirts. Apparently that makes you sophisticated these days.

    Maybe I would like them more if she wasn’t hiking what is already a short skirt up some more.  Or pulling her dress through her legs like she’s 3.  Yes, she has great legs.  I can see that without the help.  The only pic I really care for is the shot in the McQueen with her hand on her hip.  That is what she looks like.

    I think she looks incredibly weird. It’s like someone put different eyes on her. Her eyes don’t look like they belong to her. It’s giving me the creeps, kind of.

    Even so, this might have been marginally more enjoyable were it not for her sound bites. Everything she says just reinforces that her perfectly coiffed head is preposterously far up her perfectly Photoshopped ass!

    The cut out dress looks like a stripper costume (a very expensive, high end one).  I like her better in print than in person because she has one of the most irritating voices, only third to Rachel Ray and Paula Deene whose voices are worse.  I think she is lying about how she eats whatever she wants.   The girl has obviously not had a full meal in years, no matter what she says, and no matter how much the pictures were photoshopped.  In general, the photos were well done, but the clothes were totally forgetable.

    “Great pictures; great dresses; but only a couple times does she actually look like herself.” 

    Isn’t looking like someone else — someone fictitious or idealized or stylized — sort of the point of these editorial shoots? I see them as a fantasy of sorts, mostly to showcase the garments. Naturalistic or realistic isn’t usually the goal, unless that happens to be the “concept.”

    If she doesn’t look like herself -  what is the point of using her?

    In nearly every picture, I can only hear Eddie Izzard going, ”
    ‘ello, Sue. I’ve got legs.”

    God, I hate Terry Richardson’s photographic style SO MUCH. No matter who he’s photographing they always look exactly the same, and they almost always look terrible. I honestly cannot understand why he keeps getting work.

      I absolutely agree. I went to a show of  his about 11 years ago and EVERY photograph looked identical. Same lighting, same vibe. Gawd, it was dull.

    what has she done to her face?

    Something looks really off, to me. I also find her lack of thigh and butt somewhat disturbing.

    Something about her face makes me think of Maggie Gyllenhaal. Dunno if it’s lighting or Photoshop but stick a curly brown wig on her and she could be Maggie.

    She really needs to stop talking in interviews. “Insufferable” is the first word that comes to mind.

    I hate her (her Goop updates are a riot) but I have to admit, she hasn’t looked this bloody good in ages. Albeit the airbrushing.

    Gotta disagree with you, TLo – the girl looks GOOD!

    I thought they photo-shopped Kirsten Dunst and Gwynnie together.

    Some (maybe most) women look much different when their hair reveals/hides their ears.

    She looks like a mash-up of herself and Kirsten Dunst.

    She’s so pretty when she just smiles and laughs naturally.  I like this editorial- girl’s got gams like whoa.

    Oh, God, Goopy is so useless, isn’t she? I like that one photo, where u can’t see her face, though

    She looks so much like her mom in these pictures. Not in a bad way, just kind of eery.

    Speaking of stalker perv uncle, Terry Richardson, he’s done a Charlize Theron shoot that is a lot like this.

    The second photo is pretty great. But she looks photoshopped to no end, especially on the cover. It’s embarrassing, really. And as someone said below she almost looks like Blake Lively.

    The soundbites are her, aren’t they? Or at least the way she comes across in the media. I can’t help but get the feeling that this gal is fairly uncomfortable in her own skin. There’s just this sense that she trying a wee bit too hard to maintain an image that’s more educated and cultured than she actually is.

    I hate that dress with the cut-aways, I hate that we can see that sinew-y muscle next to her hm-hm, yuck. Terry Richardson yuck yuck! I quite like all the slap on her though, makes her look more interesszzzzz 

  • http://www.deathbywhippedcream.com/ Addis R. Pérez

    Are you sure they didn’t use Blake Lively for this shoot?

    Gwyneth Paltrow, killed by an excess of Photoshop. Or maybe it’s the wrong lighting. Bu egads, those are some ugly pictures.

    I don’t know. These pictures are not moving me.  Oh, a leggy blond celebrity with red lipstick and black dress?  Outside of the unnecessary photoshop foibles, these just seem boring.  Bring back professional models please.

    If the people who invented Photoshop could see what would be done in their name, they would would never stop throwing up. (Bad paraphrase of a famous Woody Allen line.)

    Preparing myself for the firing sqaud, but I love me some Gywnnie. I think she looks amazing in these pictures. It seems as if almost every blog I go on the commenters are having a field day with their snark comments about her. Blah, get over it! So she’s weird. Who cares?!

    on the cover she has a really uncanny resemblance to kirsten dunst.

    Is she [Gwyn] relevant in 2000Future? Now that we have Blanchett, hell, even Uma took to the backseat. I clicked to see what the fuss is about.

    Gwenyth is a great model. Actress/Singer/Lifestyle Blogger? Not so much.
