- Vanity Fair reportedly will publish a piece on Gwyneth Paltrow but now it’s going to be “soft.” Gwynnie emailed friends asking them not to provide quotes for the piece, which supposedly claims she had an alleged affair with Elle MacPherson’s husband, and also asked them not to appear in the magazine in the future. VF appears to have backed off. Talk about coal in our stockings. SAD FACE. [RadarOnline]

“I’m not a quitter. I’ve done everything I could to be the perfect wife and mother and really support my husband. But I just didn’t have any more to give, you know? … I knew that I wasn’t feeling 100 percent right [about our marriage]. I found myself on a roller coaster, like, I’m going to keep things moving, keep things going. I’m going to keep up this amazing [façade], everyone looking at me and Rupert, thinking, Oh, wow, you guys have it all…. Really, I had times when I felt very lonely, very disconnected from Rupert. We’d lost our real connection. … We were together for 16 years, and that in itself is really beautiful. And we’ve created two exceptional lives together.”
Model Liberty Ross opens up in December’s Vanity Fair about the Twihard Cheating Scandal Heard ‘Round The World.
From what I can ascertain from the clip posted online, her relationship dissolution story is completely relatable. Well, except for the whole dashingly handsome director husband/internationally famous starlet part. Keep reading »
As much as I do not enjoy Gwyneth Paltrow and rubbed my hands together with glee at the thought of a damning tell-all about the actress/lifestyle guru, I had hoped the secrets would reveal her to be a fraud not a philanderer. But sources are whispering that the much-anticipated Vanity Fair “epic takedown” might reveal that Gwyneth, who’s been married to Chris Martin since 2003, had an affair with Elle Macpherson’s billionaire husband, Jeff Soffer.

Martha Stewart’s undermining non-endorsement of Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle guru aspirations is just the beginning; Vanity Fair will soon publish what some are describing as an “epic takedown” of the actress/foodie with a cover story that Paltrow declined to participate in. Vanity Fair editor in chief Graydon Carter told The Times of London that Gwyneth “forced his hand” by telling her famous friends in an email last month not to cooperate with the magazine on the feature. “Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again,” GP added in the email, as quoted by The New York Times.
Apparently Gwyneth, who has (willingly) appeared on the cover of the magazine before, didn’t like the negative tenor of recent VF profiles of Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt and was worried she would be portrayed in a bad light as well. But it sounds like once Carter and Co. found out that Paltrow was steering her friends and colleagues away from working with the magazine on the piece — or on anything at all — they decided to go full steam ahead with their takedown.

- Why is Gwyneth Paltrow emailing all her friends and asking them not to speak with reporters from Vanity Fair for an upcoming story about her? They must have done something to piss Her Gwyn-ness off. Anyway, that’s so middle school. [Huffington Post]

Vanity Fair, that magazine that your parents probably have in their bathroom magazine rack, does a yearly analysis of the best-dressed celebs, socialites and entrepreneurs. Generally, it seems, the only qualification to appear on the list is that you have to be really, ridiculously rich. Of course, nice clothes help. But really, money does not buy you actual style (nor does it buy you class, as LuAnn de Lesseps can attest). With that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the latest Vanity Fair list. As expected, the list has some celebs on it, but it’s also got a healthy number of models and socialites (including one dude whose “profession” is master of foxhounds) — plus quite a few struggling musicians and C-list actors whose families happen to be incredibly wealthy and well-connected (trust funds, anyone?). Oh, are you possibly vaguely related to the Medici’s or some other powerful Renaissance family? You’re on it.
We put together a short list of some of the dozens of best-dressed picks, analyzing what they wore — plus, we also threw in some of the people we think actually deserve to be on the list. (I mean, how do you leave Diane Kruger and Solange off a best-dressed round up?) Take a look, won’t you?
A new Vanity Fair/”60 Minutes” poll surveyed American adults about the qualities they look for in an ideal woman. And, by George, we’ve got one: she’s a “bold and experienced” “good mother” who hates the movie “Fatal Attraction,” doesn’t smoke, and is a doctor. But don’t feel bad if that doesn’t describe you … because it doesn’t describe most of us.
Here’s a closer look at the stats so you know exactly what you should be like, if you want to make a bunch of random people who read Vanity Fair and/or watch “60 Minutes” like you:
Well done, Vanity Fair, for shooting the brainy and beautiful Kerry Washington for your August cover. Even on the cool blue tiles of a swimming pool, the lovely “Scandal” star is sizzling hot. She just landed her first ladymag cover on Elle last month, so it figures the woman who plays Olivia Pope would dominate Vanity Fair by summer’s end. This is one issue I can’t wait to arrive in my mailbox. [Jezebel]
Because I was a weird kid, I’ve been reading Vanity Fair since I was, like, 14. There’s nothing I enjoy more than long-form stories about society murders, celebrity addicts and presidential affairs. Every year, Vanity Fair also comes up with a best-dressed list, chock full of names of socialites, French nobility and a gallimaufry of minor European royalty. Usually I don’t know more than a few of the names on the list, and couldn’t even begin to imagine the clothing budgets these people must have.
But this year, VF is making things a bit more democratic. In a ploy to seem relevant, the aged magazine is opening its Best Dressed competition to the public. Nan Kempner is rolling over in her extra-small couture grave. Keep reading »
