Looks Like I'm Not The Only One.

Monday, February 23, 2009


As regular readers of my blog you know that I am slightly, OK majorly, obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow. Yes, I try to dress/look/eat/ (insert word here) like her. I know, I know, there are plenty of people out there to emulate. But I just can't help coming back to her. Why? It's because she is just SO DAMN FABULOUS. 

According to the New York Times it looks like I'm not the only one. This article discusses how Gwyneth has become the new lifestye guru of some (me, me, me!.) With that sort of "Oprah" stardom there is bound to be some backlash. I of course think that most of it is completely unfair and even more uncalled for, but my girl Gwyn doesn't even seem to bat an eye. 

Bottom line it looks like Gwynie is hear to stay.  At a minimum it means she won't be getting that restraining order against me anytime soon. Because:
  1. She is too busy giving training tips to Madonna (she did refer Madge to her super uber trainer.)
  2. She is too busy looking amazing at all times, even while chasing her two adorable kids.
  3. She is too busy making out with her super hot, super charming husband.
  4. She is too busy eating her way through spain all the while drinking her soy milk (something this yummy mummy can clearly relate to.)
  5. I'm not the only one!!
  6. All of the above.
Yes Gwyneth, I'd follow you anywhere.

I seriously HATED SJP's dress. I hate it even more now that I have had time to think about it. The color, the hair, the massive amount of tulle. Hate. hate, hate.

YM-
I have a only tangentially related fasion question for you. I am about to become a first time YM in April. About 10 weeks later, my sister is getting married. The good news is that there are no bridesmaids, so no dress to squeeze into, but I'll still need to find a dress that will be forgiving of the paunch I imagine will still be there in the tummy area, and that will allow easy access for b-feeding. The wedding is casual/cocktail on the Maine coast in the evening in June. Boston is where I shop, and I thought you might have some ideas about what would be the ideal dress and where to procure it in Beantown. This is your challenge should you choose to accept! Thank you for any help you can give me!
