A white tee with the words “Are you gluten free?” spotted in the window of a Spanish store has been pulled for insensitivity, with an apology from Zara issued.
Gwyneth Paltrow might have her haters (anyone pushing vajaycials and conscious uncoupling is bound to collect a boatload), but it’s undeniable that as a businesswoman, she knows what she’s doing — no matter how ludicrous her latest venture. In fact, according to her mother, Blythe Danner, she’s a half glass full kind of girl and is seeing the mishap as a good thing. “I called her immediately,” Danner told Page Six after she heard about the incident at the Time Warner Center.
If you’re planning to do any holiday shopping in New York City over the next few weeks, make sure you stop by Gwyneth Paltrow’s goop mrkt. The pop-up shop, which runs through December 24, is packed full of goop-approved goodies, from a special capsule collection of clothing in collaboration with Valentino (the studded leather jacket is already sold out) to matcha green tea lattes. But the best part of the shop is by far the selection of beauty products.
One of my personal favorite holiday traditions is the annual GOOP gift guide, curated by Gwyneth Paltrow and her team of cashmere legging-wearing GOOPers. I have never purchased anything from any of these, but I, like many readers of the lifestyle newsletter, voraciously pour through the guides in an attempt to get a glimpse at the blonde Hollywood mogul’s psyche. I imagine them as a Year in Review guide to Paltrow, in fact. This year’s guides dropped today, just in time for afternoon procrastination. “Whether you want to spend $8 or $8,000, we’ve rounded up some of the most stunning and appealing gift options around — each and every item (a leather travel journal, monogrammed pajamas, an Hermes iWatch, a trip to the moon…) is something we’d love to give or receive,” says the GOOP.While I hope you peruse these guides fully with a mug of mulled wine later this week, here are eight of the most Gwynnie gifts to get you started:Related:Beauty Advent Calendars for Christmas are Better Than ChocolateGwyneth Paltrow Opens Up About Divorce, Custody, & New Beauty Line at BlogHer ConferenceA Defense of Gwyneth’s $21,000-a-Month Beauty Habit (Kind of)
Everything on Blake Lively’s lifestyle website is on sale — but not because of the changing seasons. Lively even admitted to Time in June that the pressure to meet a deadline played a part in not making the product she really wanted to put out.
Last week, Stephen Colbert announced he was finally turning himself into a brand, after being inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James, and the $95 artisanal wooden crates Blake Lively’s selling via her own lifestyle site, Preserve. After the launch of Colbert’s Covetton House, Snoop Dogg threw his own hat—or pipe—into the ring, with the launch of Merry Jane, a sort of Goop for weed, he promised. And no one’s more thrilled about the new additions to this increasingly weird space than Paltrow, the OG lifestyler.
