a little more gwyneth

I know that Gwyneth Paltrow can rub people the wrong way when she waxes macrobiotic, but I don't understand the disproportionate amount of venom aimed in her direction. Sure, she can come off as pretentious. But in a culture where celebrities check in and out of rehab like day spas (see: Lohan, Lindsay) and tip off the paparazzi to their whereabouts (see: Montag, Heidi), it's a relief for someone in the public eye to be so consistently polite, articulate, and well put-together.

For Iron Man's international press tour, Gwyneth made the most of her enviable gams with leg-baring looks from Preen, Sonia Rykiel, Stella McCartney, Jean Paul Gaultier and Balmain. Her appearances were a mini-tutorial: How To Exit A Limousine While In A Gynecologist-Friendly Minidress Without Sharing Your Ladybusiness With The World (donations for Lindsay's tuition are tax deductible).

The soles of my feet ache just thinking about how long she had to stand to pose for photos in all of those sky-high heels, and I appreciate someone willing to risk permanent damage to her arches for the sake of fashion. It's a rare woman who has the ability to wear a laser-cut Stella McCartney minidress without looking like a total tart. I'd like to see one of the girls from The Hills try to pull that off.
