I remember the first time I saw a picture of Gwyneth Paltrow. I was on vacation in the desert of Arizona getting my tan on. And when I say the desert, I mean the DESERT. My dad and step-mom did Renaissance Festivals and this one happened to be in the sandy outskirts of whatever city was around. The family decided to go into town but I stayed behind to lay out in a dry river bed. When they got back my step-mom handed me some magazines she picked up. The one on top was Vanity Fair and it featured new, young Hollywood. There she was. One look and I knew she was going to be a big star. There was just something about her. She looked “Old Hollywood”. Part Grace Kelly, part Tippy Hedren, she radiated glamour. Now, 17 years later, she’s won an Oscar and is a fashion icon. And that’s why she’s my inspiration today.
It’s not hard to see why Gwyneth is such a fashion icon. Her classic beauty paired with an ability to always look amazing has made her one of America’s sweethearts.
