9. Gwyneth Paltrow. I’m sure I’m going to get some shit for putting Ms. Fancy Pants on the list, but I love her and I don’t care who knows! First of all, she’s stunning and doesn’t pretend it comes easy. She discusses openly how she works her ass off (literally) with Tracy Anderson. I love that about her. She’s as real as an Upper East Side Princess can be!
She can act, sing, dance, and is willing to put it all out there. I love that she has two kids and named them whatever the hell she wanted (Apple and Moses). I love that she is married to Chris Martin. Because I love me some Coldplay. She lives in London and what is cooler than London? Well, New York, but other than that, nothing!
Did I mention that Beyonce and Jay Z are some of her best friends? That’s got to give her some street cred, right? I like that she shares all of her beauty/fitness secrets on her website, Goop. She’s an accessible Ms. Fancy Pants, if anything. She’s a working mother of two and that’s what I admire the most. A working mother who has an Oscar and sang and danced on a piano at the Grammys wearing feather earrings with Cee Lo dressed as a Peacock. I mean, come one. How badass is that?
