Thy Goop-y one has been chosen as People Magazine‘s Most Beautiful Woman of 2013, mostly in part because she’s been so open about her struggle with balancing her work life with her private life and being so open about it while still maintaining her head above water. At least, that’s what I think. Here’s a snippet from the mag:
She may be PEOPLE’s 2013 Most Beautiful Woman but Gwyneth Paltrow insists her kids, Apple, 8, and Moses, 7, don’t see her as anything but mom.
“Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup. That’s what they’re used to,” she says. As for her husband, Chris Martin, “He’ll make a joke about it. If I’ve gotten fully dressed up, he’ll be like, ‘Oh, wow! You’re Gwyneth Paltrow!’ Because he’s used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair.”
I can definitely relate to Gwyneth about the baggy shorts and frizzy hair part because well, that’s just part of my work-at-home mom uniform. And while I’ll agree that Gwyneth Paltrow is a beautiful woman (there’s no denying that), shouldn’t we (and People Magazine) be looking at beauty from within? Being a mom isn’t the only thing beautiful about the job as there’s definitely more to the role and using a flat iron on occasion to become what others perceive to be “beautiful.”
This is definitely a very debatable choice and I would have expected more from People Magazine, but if we’re just looking at outer beauty for now, Gwyneth is definitely the right choice.
Tell us Babble readers, what do you think? Is Gwyneth your choice for the Most Beautiful Woman in the world?
