Gwyneth Paltrow is a Champion of Hope

Gwyneth Paltrow sparkles in a Preen dress with cut-outs at the Children of the City “Champions of Hope” benefit gala at New York City’s Tribeca Rooftop on Wednesday (July 29).

The 36-year-old actress, who finished off her outfit with Vicini ankle booties, was the special guest of the evening, raising money to help raise awareness and save lives of underprivileged children in the inner-city communities of Brooklyn.

    Fug outfit but she has a nice glow about her.

  • amanda

    I think that’s too blonde, even for Gwyneth who’s supposedly a natural blonde.

  • Dog the Bunny hunter

    I heard she loves an@l pleasures because she thinks her sh#t don’t stink

  • Double Dragon

    It’s nice to see her doing something that really matters.

  • toots

    she looks orange.

  • Not impressed by JA

    When did she get those long shapely legs ?
    She is glowing.

  • JD

    Gwyneth Paltrow is the new Heidi Montag.

  • pinkrose

    This is beyond glowing. She looks like an Ooompha Loompha.

  • annie24

    Since when did Gwyneth start botoxing?
    Her face looks plastic.

  • Sass

    Gwyn’s legs always look good to me, but her face seems pretty hollow/gaunt

  • rhonda

    she’s pushing some diet/clense thing! she looks beautiful in her own mind!

  • joe


  • rhonda

    she’s pushing some diet/clense thing! she looks beautiful in her own mind!

  • vixen

    That is not a glow. It’s a fake tan and a pretty bad one.
    Disappointed. You’d expect this from Victoria Beckham not Gwyneth Paltrow.

  • Farmer Ted

    She does have nice legs, but she’s got a horse face.

  • oh goo

    she doesn’t look like herself.

  • Blaze

    Way too overprocessed.
    One of the things I’ve always admired about Gwyn is how natural she looks. Now she looks as botoxed and bleached as Pam Anderson.
    Well, at least it’s for a good cause…

  • good news

    I like her better as a darker blonde. I don’t know why so many women go light blonde in their 30s, maybe they think it’s less harsh and makes them look younger but it just tends to wash them out.

  • dianad1968

    I never comment about her, but I kindda like her dress, and her legs look good. However, she looks older than her age here.

  • Ryan

    Wow. She used to be so bitch hot. Age was not kind to her She should definitely go back to her natural hair colour.

  • my3cents

    Sometimes I see glimmers of the SIL beauty, other times she looks like Carol Channing 2.0.

  • Shell

    She has great hair texture. Overall, I tend to find her a buttaface with incredible legs, but even her legs look oddly lacking definition. Maybe it’s the outfit. Very unflattering around the mid section.

  • half blood

    i totally agree. that gross blond she wears make her look like an old hag.

  • Weeds

    Gwyneth looks like shit. Like she hasn’t slept very well and she tried to cover it all up with heavy goopy makeup.

  • T

    Something about her cheek and eye area looks different.
    Is she really botoxing?

  • zk

    Absolutely gorgeous, as she always is……!!!

  • jami

    who knows if she’s gotten botox? and frankly who cares really?? years from now Jolie will possibly feel the pressure to look a certain way and who’s to say she won’t consider botox or other enhancements then? gwyneth looks good, whatever it is she’s doing is clearly working for her. great hair and makeup! not crazy about the dress.

  • irene

    Bad look for Gwyn. Pretty unflattering and even a bit trannyish.
    She has a nice shape but you’d never know it by the dress.

  • kayla

    I don’t know if she’s gotten botox but she certainly looks like she’s done something to her face. I think people care because it makes her face look stiff. I’m getting deja vu of Rose McGowan after her car accident.
    What does Jolie have to do with Gwyneth? Nothing, right?
    The makeup is overdone and not loving the dress either — makes her look like she doesn’t have a waist.

  • Double Dragon

    She does look a bit orangey but I guess faux tanning is better than actually using a tanning bed. I used a tanning bed this year, I usually don’t use one. I like the result but I can easily see how it would age your skin if you did it continuously. So, for a fake tan she doesn’t look that bad.

  • Yes

    Yuck. She needs a new stylist and to wash that fake tan off… her skin looks positively orange.

  • ace11a

    nice rack..she has always had that

  • Bella

    Gwyn, call me. Love Ben.

  • Sally

    She looks younger and prettier in these pics!


    How old is she? She looks old and ugly. She needs to take her family to McDonalds. Her kids are too skinny. I think that Brad recovered his sight when he met Angelina. WTF with these UGLY BROADS.

  • Ben

    @ace11a: I partially agree. At one time, this woman did have a nice rack. Now she looks scrawny aside from the legs and the dress isn’t helping. Makes her look like she has saggy bitch.

  • mancunian

    when i actually see gwyneth interacting with the unwashed masses then i’ll believe.

  • mailey

    cool dress.

  • lol


  • blinded by the bleach

    good god…the bleach on her hair spilled over onto her teeth! every time she makes a public appearance anymore she looks like a trashy baywatch starlet.

  • Ali

    I think she looks fabulous. There is obviously a lot of envy at work here.
    Why be so nasty? Nobody here really knows her. She seems like a good and sincere person, who is trying to be responsible in her very privileged life. Bravo for her to do this benefit for ill children. I like the whole outfit, and her body and face look wonderful.

  • icey

    ^ Just because someone doesn’t find her attractive, does not mean they’re envious.
    I think she looks terrible here. Brassy does not equal pretty and it looks like she’s overdosed on hair dye and fake tanner. The dress does not fit her very well either and the booty shoe style is getting old. Hard to believe this is Gwyneth Paltrow. She looks like a slighty younger, blonde version of Dixie Carter.

  • troll times

    When is the diarrhea party and starvation camp?

  • jenny

    i admit some times i am not very nice about Gwennie, but i must give credit where it is due, she is trying to do something to help others, i won’t comment on her appearance, thanks Gwen, the children does need help.

  • k

    This woman is a mess. Her kids are hellions! Husband is a buffoon. Her career is non-existent (btw-who did she have to blow to get those modeling gigs cuz she is fug!)since her dad died. BFF with The Material One. She is no better than the idiot starlets running around Hollywood today, except she is older and more desperate for attention.

  • cinn

    She is the spitting image of Sandra Lee there — same thin face and super bleached blonde hair. Agree, this style makes her look older. Sandra is 43. Gwyneth and her look the same age.

  • timber

    GP has a runner’s body and a butterface.

  • just sayin’

    Paltrow is cute from a distance but kinda of scary up close. She used to have a sweet square-shaped face. Now it looks like she stretched it too tight and glazed herself in honey shake n’ bake tanner.

  • Velvet

    Her face does look different. Maybe it’s the makeup?
    I am really surprised that dress is by Preen. The colors are not bad but the design is awful and does nothing for her figure. It looks like a modified gym outfit.

  • mr

    What has she done that is so offensive to you? I bet you’re mostly women and look at you all attacking her appearance and age. How nice that women can support the success of other women in 2009 without coming across like jealous, bitter, vitriolic shrews. I wonder if anyone here would get so passionately hateful and vitriolic about a male celebrity who wears a suit you personally wouldn’t put your husband in, badly tweezed his brows, self-tanned or committed other crimes equal to Gwyneth’s (as cited here)- oh, including turning 36.
