Gwyneth Paltrow for InStyle UK January 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow graces the January 2013 cover of InStyle UK wearing a Jil Sander Fall 2012 pink cashmere coat and nude dress.

The rest of her editorial, shot by Giampaolo Sgura, sees her wearing stunning couture gowns from Armani Privé and Atelier Versace. That pink Atelier Versace gown most definitely needs a red carpet moment. Don’t you agree?

Designer Diane von Furstenberg, who Gwyn also counts as a friend, conducted the interview.

Gwyn opened up quite a lot as she talked about her hubby Chris Martin, her desire for more babies, plus her diet and exercise regime.

Be sure to pick up a copy of InStyle’s January 2013 issue on Thursday where you can read the full interview. In the meantime check out some extracts below.

On not being able to have it all – and her trying to cut the amount of work she does:
“ I look for an interesting supporting part about once a year. That’s the most I can manage. Some women can do it and that’s fantastic, but I can’t. You make choices as a wife and mother, don’t you? You can’t have it all. I don’t care what it looks like.”

On the success of her relationship:
DVF: Would you say the success of a relationship comes from the fact that you’re not needy?”
GP: “I would say it’s because I focus more on understanding than on being understood.”

On having more children: “My brain says, ‘Oh, I think I’m done, the kids are big now and I don’t want to go back to changing diapers’. But a part of me would love to have another. Of course, I’m old now!”

On the effect her father had on her: “My dad and I had one of those incredibly lucky, love-of-your-life relationships. The main reason I believe in myself comes from my father. I felt so understood by him.”
DVF: “I think if your father makes you confident, you wind up having healthy relationships with men.”
GP: “I agree. I mean, I stumbled a few times in that department. But I feel like I wasn’t struggling to figure out men.”

On her diet / exercise regime: “I was very strict for a while. I was macrobiotic for a couple of years, then I got pregnant and just ate ice cream. What I’ve learnt is I want to enjoy my life and food is a big part of it. I love to cook and feed people. I cook every day. I don’t like sweets. My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine, or French fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger.”

    I love this Jil Sander coat sadly having met her on several occassions cannot say the same about her.

      Do share the juice, please.

      • Linda December 5, 2012 at 17:15 #

        LOL – yes, spill, please. Now you’ve got us really curious.

        Both dresses are stunning. I’d love to see the Armani on the red carpet.

        • Leeann December 5, 2012 at 22:53 #

          She is totally self absorbed and frankly rather plain

          • Linda December 7, 2012 at 13:49 #

            Thank you Leeann…was really curious about that :)

    Sheesh have fun Gweneth. Macrobiotics? Seriously girl? Most of these celebs just don’t EAT. They are too obsessed with being size 0-4.

    • Beta December 5, 2012 at 14:33 #

      I dont know, im suscribed to goop (yes, yes, jeje, I know. surprisingly I love it!!) and she features tons of recipes that are delicious. yes some of them have ingredients ive never heard of, kind of like elfic salt and exotic stuff, but tons are “normal food”. there are also cleanse diets that are not my thing but in all I have the feeling she has a healthy lifestyle, at least for entertainment industry standards

    • SilentVisitor December 5, 2012 at 14:36 #

      You do know that there are people who are size 0-4 and still eat normally right??????

      • Odette December 5, 2012 at 16:05 #

        Of course I know that. I am talking about starlets who aren’t naturally a size 0-4 (unlike Taylor Swift and Zoe Saldana). Just because she posts them doesn’t mean she actually eats it herself.

        She did clearly state what her splurges are, and it’s ridiculous to me.

        • GGG December 5, 2012 at 18:29 #

          What’s ridiculous about splurging by eating a baguette and cheese? Just because that’s not how you splurge, doesn’t make it ridiculous…

          • ronnie December 5, 2012 at 19:13 #

            her comments are just insane. people are starving
            in need of homes and food because of Sandy and
            she just ignores what is happening. It is all about her. So selfish.

    • ronnie December 5, 2012 at 20:04 #

      how stupid can she be. Every thing good that she
      might be putting into her body she takes out with
      the cleanse. Doesn’t she realize that she has the
      bones of a 90 yr old. Wake up And enjoy life.
      What’s with the 80’s hair. Not a pretty sight.

  3. TeaAtTwo December 5, 2012 at 14:25 #

    Was she unfriendly?

  4. Beta December 5, 2012 at 14:30 #

    thanks for featuring this!
    that pink dress is to.die.for
    the black one is very sleek, I love it

  5. SilentVisitor December 5, 2012 at 14:38 #

    The pictures have been photoshopped to death……
    I think I am going to create my magazine and my selling point will be ‘We don’t retouch pictures’ …….lol

    • Francesca December 5, 2012 at 16:54 #

      I would buy it! too much photoshop, it’s getting ridiculous. On the cover she’s unrecognizable, she’s such a beautiful woman that she didn’t need it.

      • SilentVisitor December 6, 2012 at 13:04 #

        Thank you……now I can start a market research…..

    • Ruth December 5, 2012 at 18:09 #

      Yes. I think Paltrow is beautiful, but she’s just scary looking here. It’s like they took her face from another angle and pasted it on.

    • Betelgeuze December 5, 2012 at 18:24 #

      +1 the photoshop really is ridiculous and way, way WAY overdone. I mean, what were they thinking?

    • Dhppy December 5, 2012 at 20:47 #

      I couldn’t get over the photoshopping. It’s insane. She looks like someone else. And it’s not plastic surgery. I saw photos, on this site, of her on the red carpet recently and she looks the same as she always has, so why did they do this her?

  6. Christine December 5, 2012 at 14:45 #

    Love the Versace dress.

  7. Leela December 5, 2012 at 15:01 #

    I love the cover it’s Christmassy and cosy. But her face is SO awkward or just badly photoshopped. Her nose and the right side of her face almost make her look dirty.

    If indulging is bread and cheese… what the heck does she eat normally then?

    • Odette December 5, 2012 at 16:06 #

      I know Leela right? That is what I was criticizing in my comment above.

    • Mary Gatto December 5, 2012 at 16:35 #

      They photoshoped her back to her teenage years! Whyyy??? She’s beautiful at her own age (does that make any sense?).

      I used to like somethings on Goop, but she sounds so delusional now with her “tips” and being a “working mum”. I mean, come on, Gwyneth, shut up already.

      • Sara December 5, 2012 at 19:26 #

        +1, how does one consider themselves a “working mum” when they only work on one project a year?
        And she’s hardly recognizable on the cover…

  8. ber December 5, 2012 at 15:09 #

    What did they do to her face on the cover???

  9. EmmaWoodhouse December 5, 2012 at 15:20 #

    I don’t understand people who don’t like sweets. :)
    I like the Armani gown but the cover is too negligeeish and the Versace gown comes off as tacky to me. Not my favorite editorial.

    • Mary Gatto December 5, 2012 at 16:39 #

      + 1 on everything you said, Emma!
      Actually I hated pretty much every single piece of Versace’s last collection. Waaayyyy too tacky, vulgar even.

    • ronnie December 5, 2012 at 20:11 #

      she is totally fake. if you look in her kitchen
      you will probably find it hidden. very tacky
      gown. she does not do it justice.

  10. andrea December 5, 2012 at 15:36 #

    Photoshop alert! I’m surprised they didnt do a more glam cover.

  11. Barbs December 5, 2012 at 16:44 #

    Could she be any more photoshopped?! She doen’t need that amount of photoshop!WHY on earth do that to her?!

  12. GGG December 5, 2012 at 18:26 #

    Holy photoshop… Terrible. She’s beautiful enough, she didn’t need to be so retouched. What a shame.

    • snowlion December 5, 2012 at 21:18 #

      I know! I thought the point of photoshop was to make people looks better, not worse.

  13. ronnie December 5, 2012 at 20:11 #

    totally agree

  14. pipsqueak December 6, 2012 at 15:43 #

    Terrible cover photo! Oh well, InStyle is merely a shopping magazine. Love Gwyneth and GOOP. She’s not popular among some b/c she’s having it all, but she doesn’t build herself a charitable platform to buy followers, nor is she trying to connect to all people like a politician out to get votes.
