Gwyneth Paltrow is 38, has had two children and this is what she looks like--she and Vanity Fair want you to know that. Maybe this should make us feel bad about ourselves, but how many of us have spent years following strict diets and waking up at 4:30 in the morning to do yoga and Tracey Anderson workouts? Gwyneth has always been totally forthcoming about the fact that she works her ass off (literally), and it has obviously paid off.
Why she chose this particular issue of Vanity Fair to show us the goods is a little unclear--we don't have the magazine in front of us yet (it's out next month in the August issue), so we're unsure of the context, but according to the Telegraph, it's for the August "Jewelry Calendar," a supplement to the magazine. Meaning, it's not even about her. She's just modeling some Louis Vuitton jewelry. In fishnets.
With this and Lindsay Lohan's rumored September cover, Vanity Fair stands to do quite well at newsstands in the coming months. The August issue of Vanity Fair hits newsstands tomorrow.
