Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson to open a blow-dry bar!

When you think of beautiful hair, do you think of Gwyneth Paltrow? How about Tracy Anderson? The pair, who have teamed up in the past on diet and exercise ventures have found another thing to do together. Open a blow-dry bar!

The two celebs are teaming up with David Babaii to open their very own blow dry bar inside Tracy’s Brentwood Studio.

Is the Blow-Dry bar the new celebrity fragrance? It would seem so. Shortly after Rachel Zoe and business partner Robin Moraetes opened Dream Dry in NYC, we caught wind that Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson were headed down that same perfect hair path, teaming up with David Babaii to open up a gorgeous blow dry bar within Tracy’s new Brentwood studio.

“We are so excited to have partnered with David Babaii on the blow dry bar that we’ll be offering to members of our flagship studio located in Brentwood, CA,” Tracy Anderson tells Cosmopolitan.com. “As our members transform themselves into the women and men they want to be [in the studio], the David Babaii team will design a hairstyle customized for their face shape and lifestyle, as well as a product regime of what to use to keep them looking their best while [they're] on the go.”

Prices are yet to be decided for each hairstyle, but we can assure you there will be a ton to choose from between sleek and wave-based blow-drys to more elaborate braids and updos.

So here’s the deal: The blow dry bar opens April 4, along with the Tracy Anderson Studio’s opening, and right now memberships are limited and filling up. So, if you live in the area and are interested, email info@tracyandersonmethod.com for rates and availabilities.

So it will be a blow-out by inside a gym? That’s genius, not gonna lie. Would you pay for a blow-out after hitting the gym?

Gwyneth Paltrow Opens Blow Dry Bar

Gwyneth Paltrow is following in the footsteps of another high-fashion blonde, Rachel Zoe…by opening up her very own Blow Dry Bar!

Yep, the actress, style, fashion and blogging mogul has a new venture!  It won’t be in NYC, like Zoe’s blow dry enterprise, but will be on the west coast, in Brentwood, California (right by UCLA and Santa Monica, if you know LA).

So what exactly is a blow dry bar? It’s essentially a pared- down haircut place, specializing in styling with no cuts or color!  Simple, right?

The bar isn’t actually all Paltrow’s baby, though: the business is a joint venture with her business partner and trainer Tracy Anderson and stylist David Babali. It will be located close to Anderson’s new fitness studio, and both are slated to open April 4.  A source tells Us Weekly that Paltrow’s expansion into the lifestyle categories isn’t done yet and, she’s got her gaze set on opening a classy little mini mall. Says the source,  “It’s going to have a Tracy Anderson gym, a dry bar, a healthy restaurant with Mario Batali and a nail salon.”

And I’m sure the price tag is going to be HIGH!  Am I right?

Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest Goop newsletter offers up advice for updating your spring closet – for $500K!

Update your Spring wardrobe for only $500,000!! No biggie, right? Well not if you’re Gwyneth Paltrow!

In her latest Goop article, the 40-year-old actress poses in a series of designer outfits for occasions like work, cocktail parties, dinners and casual weekends. The clothes, which all come from Net-a-porter, are meant as “inspiration for outfits for all aspects of your busy life.”

One outfit which she recommends for ‘a nighttime occasion’ consists of a $425 white leather crop-top from Theyksens’ Theory, shiny orange Maiyet shorts for $475, a $925 leopard print Charlotte Olympia clutch and Jimmy Choo heels for $575.

She accessorizes the bright ensemble with a $795 Swarovski crystal necklace and a $1,590 bangle bracelet from Saint Laurent.

For ‘a night in with guests’, the mother-of-two suggests a maxi skirt, which she pairs with a plain grey tank top.

The satin and tulle skirt she models goes for $1,615 from Temperley London, while the racer-back T by Alexander Wang top is a more affordable $77.

To keep the look casual, Ms Paltrow wears flat shoes – a $945 pair of Charlotte Olympia sandals.

And for weekend lounging, the star opts for a slouchy look – silky trousers, a loose sweatshirt and army green sneakers.

The sweatshirt – from Saint Laurent – costs $675, her shoes are $600 Isabel Marant ankle boots, and the silk Chloe pants cost $1,695.

The blonde tops off her casual look with $760 worth of jewelry.

For daytime basics, the actress suggests pastels including a dusty pink T-shirt from Lanvin for $675.

She compliments her girly top with a $265 pair of matching pink Paul and Joe shorts. And to keep the outfit conservative, she sports a $625 white button-down beneath her short-sleeved top.

Okay, I get it, I get it. Gwyneth is super annoying. I read this Goop newsletter when it came in yesterday, and I thought what a pretentious b**ch. Seriously, who can afford this stuff? It’s blatantly obvious that most people CANNOT afford it. And the people who could…do they read her newsletter?

I think most of these clothes are super cute, and sure, in an ideal life I would have Gwyneth Paltrow’s body and Gwyneth Paltrow’s checking account. But I don’t. I think this newsletter would have come across much better had she modeled outfits from Old Navy and H&M. Cute clothes that people can actually afford.

Who’s with me!

Jessica Alba wants you to know she’s more likeable than Gwyneth Paltrow

Who do you like more, Gwyneth Paltrow or Jessica Alba? They’ve both recently released lifestyle books giving tips for living healthier lives, and recipes, etc. The two actresses are obviously in competition with each other – but which woman do you prefer?

Well, Jessica Alba would like you to know that she’s much more down to earth than Gwyneth. Here she throws shade at Gwyneth, because of all that money she grew up with:

Alicia Silverstone is a vegan, so she’s the extreme side of it. Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle, but I didn’t grow up with a bunch of money, so my tips are much more grounded: Repurposing things and making things at home.”

Jessica really hopes her book ‘The Honest Life’ can help other people, and that it contains lots of tips that people can use quickly.

“I absolutely do these things. That’s why I wrote the book. There’s lots of options, like delivery services for fresh produce that is organic, if people just want to do a couple of things in the book that are supereasy.”

Here are some new pictures of Jessica at the launch of her new book! Take a look here – will you check out her new book?

Gwyneth Paltrow talks diet AGAIN in SELF Magazine

Whenever I read articles about Gwyneth Paltrow anymore, the only thing people can seem to talk about is what she’s eating or not eating, and what she’s feeding or not feeding her children. Honestly, who the hell cares what she eats and what she chooses to feed her kids. In the new issue of SELF Magazine, she talks again – at length about her diet, and believe it or not she actually follows her HIGHLY restrictive diet about three weeks a year, and that’s it. She claims her – “no dairy, sugar, gluten” diet was prescribed to her by a doctor.

RELATED: Gwyneth Paltrow opens up about the miscarriage that almost killed her.

Read on for more:

Why Gwyneth changed her diet: “A couple of years ago, I got really run down. I had to sing at awards shows, which was fun but stressful. I’d have a Guinness and a beta-blocker every time. I also was constantly getting on airplanes, trying to knock myself out with sleeping pills and wine, waking up, trying to sweat it out with exercise and a steam, and then working really hard all day. Eventually, I had a panic attack. My body was like, ‘What is happening?’ My doctor, Alejandro Junger, recommended that I cut out basically everything: dairy, sugar, gluten, anything processed. I was like, “What the f— am I going to eat now?” That’s why I made the book: to stop eating brown rice out of the fridge because I didn’t know what else to eat–it was demoralizing.”

When she adheres to the diet: “I probably eat this way two or three times a year for three weeks at a time. Past that, I’m not willing to make the sacrifice. Life is about balance. It’s good to work in healthy food, whether it’s five days a week or five meals a week. And if you’re going to do it, it should be awesome food you’re psyched to make. But never cut out the brownies or the wine.”

How she feels on the diet: “You feel lighter and your emotions get smoother. I also was run-down because I had a lot of unexpressed anger. I made everyone else’s feelings more important than my own. I’d suck it up and then be alone in my car yelling at traffic or fighting with hangers in my closet when they got stuck together. You’re not learning anything unless you’re having the difficult conversations. Dealing with things directly changed my relationships. Sometimes when you get clear about who you are, others get less comfortable because they liked who you were. It’s changed my marriage [to Chris Martin, 36], too, but he’s up for the challenge.”

Her biggest stress: “When I’m supposed to be in two places at once. I try to avoid finding myself in that scenario.”

Blowing off steam: “I watch Homeland or New Girl. I also like to have martinis with my girlfriends. I feel a sisterhood emerging around me. I’m less threatening now that I’m 40 and not 26-with-an-Oscar. There’s a sense of love and support. I feel really lucky.”

She calls girlfriends for advice: “Always. “I have a guy coming for dinner. What should I make?” or “My mother really upset me. How should I approach it?” They know I’ve been through a lot of pain and suffering—some public, some private—and I keep going. Or maybe it’s just that I was the first one who could afford therapy!

Turning 40: “[My 30s] were happy. I came into my womanhood, had my kids. My 20s were a lot of work, and I had no big-picture sense of who I was, where I was going or the point of it all.”

The point of it all: “Finding your truth. Be honest about what you feel and don’t be afraid to articulate it. “To thine own self be true.” It’s not a platitude. It’s the key to life.

I actually really like Gwyneth, but I do get awfully tired of listening to her endless holier than thou complex. She doesn’t come across very well in interviews, and maybe this is just what she’s really like. Can you imagine being friends with someone like her? Aye aye aye!
