I love Gwyneth Paltrow because i think that she is an exceptional example of balance. I know the woman gets a lot of flack for her website and that she's often accused of being unrealistic and living in a ridiculous rich-person bubble while trying to come off as normal. I digress. I think she's cool, down-to earth, incredibly funny (seriously, watch her in an interview), has amazing taste, appears to have great values and follows her path without really taking the words of her critics to heart. She's not perfect and she's not pretending to be, but she is incredibly chic even if wearing jeans and a t-shirt. Beauty, brains and unpretentiousness. It also helps that she's BFFs with Mario Batali. Voilà!
The woman also just turned 40 this week and has never looked better. Here's to you, Gwinnie! Who are your role models?
PS A very happy thanksgiving to all my canadian compadres!
