Gwyneth Paltrow For Elle US September 2011

Gwyneth Paltrow graces the cover of the Elle US September 2011 issue wearing the same Louis Vuitton black laser cut leather jacket we saw on Fergie recently.

The rest of her editorial which was shot by Carter Smith sees her wearing Christopher Kane and Tom Ford.

In her interview Gwynie talks about showing the world a different side of herself, sharing her personal care regimens, Beyonce’s advice for her and Gwyneth also makes a rare comment about her husband Chris Martin, divulging why they keep their marriage out of the spotlight.

The issue hits newsstands on August 16 or head to Elle.com to see more.

On showing the world a different side: “If you speak to my friends who’ve known me since I was four, they’ll say, ‘That is her.’ They always said to me, ‘You’re the dirtiest person in the world and so funny. Show the world that side of you.’ I felt guarded. I felt like if I really showed people more of me and I was still not accepted, then…Who cares. You just realize it doesn’t matter what people think of you.”

On going public with her personal care regimens: “It’s so much easier to sit home and not exercise and criticize other people. What I love is inspiring people. People come up to me and say, ‘I want to have two kids and wear a bathing suit and not feel terrible about myself. I see how hard you work and it makes me feel like I can do that too.’”

On the advice Beyoncé gave her before her performance with Cee Lo Green: “Beyoncé’s like, ‘Okay. The singing is great. But you’re not having any fun.’ She’s like, ‘Remember when we’re at Jay’s concert and Panjabi MC comes on and you do your crazy Indian dance? Do that. Be you!’”

On rumors she and Chris broke up: “Sometimes it’s hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren’t all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what’s going to happen. If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children. Like, I made such a good choice. He’s such a good dad. You can never be relaxed or smug and think, ‘I’ve got this thing.’ That’s also part of it: keeping yourself on your toes. I’m not going to take this for granted.”

On keeping her marriage private: “He makes music for his fans, and he doesn’t want people to conjure a lame famous couple when they’re getting into his music. I get it.”

    Second, third and last shots are beautiful. The second is amazing! Love the heels in the last one.

      The heels are Tom Ford and so stunning! Unfortunately I haven’t found a picture of them anywhere yet.

    The black and white picture is the only one that works for me. The rest, especially the cover, are just unfortunate.

    She’s reminding me of Clare Danes in the second to last scan.

    The most amazing legs in showbiz! <3

    not a great editorial, but there’s one thing about it that I love: the actress actually looks like herself, without being photoshopped to the death of her actual features.

      totally agree! it could have been better fashion-wise but at least we can recognize her. and the pictures look so calm and G. looks effortlessly soft and self-confident :)

    She does look recognizable, but her face looks awkward and uncomfortable. I’m not sure why.

    Boring! the last pic was my fav

  10. Alina August 17, 2011 at 05:44 #

    Beautiful.

    Meh … boring editorial. No thrills in styling or art direction. Also, as much as I like Gwyneth and GOOP, I just wish she could for once shut up about Jay-Z and Beyonce. Enough with this name-dropping, I-have-famous-friends yakking – yawn! It’s too much … so much it comes across as a political statement.

    She’s gorgeous but i don’t really like this editorial or the cover.
