As much as I dislike starting off on a negative tone, I’m going to for this one: I really didn’t feel Gwyneth Paltrow much. Before. Now I’m impressed. And it’s not her acting that’s dazzling me! Oh, no! It’s her marketing genius. Or her marketing team genius. Anyway you put it, Gwyneth is now miles away the average, dull movie star.
She’s behind the Goop phenomenon, besides being married to Chris Martin, the musician, and mother of two. And this is how Gwyneth Paltrow managed the transition to the kitchen goddess that’s looking back at you from the pages of Vogue US August 2010. (the story continues right after the jump, don’t miss the images from Gwyneth’s apartment, click here for the gallery!)
I have to be honest with you, as fascinating as I find Gwyneth right now I couldn’t help but fall asleep while reading her Vogue piece. It wasn’t her fault, neither was Jeffrey Steingarten’s! I just thought it was endless, and colorless. Just like Gwyneth’s kitchen (that you can admire in some real estate images below). Just like I thought Gwyneth was before reinventing herself. Anyway, the recipe collector in me is starving for Gwynnie’s cooking book (My Father’s Daughter, set to appear next Spring). Aren’t you just a bit curious? (just in case you’ll feel slightly insomniac these days, the Vogue piece is available here; the images from Gwyneth’s apartment via)
