Gwyenth Paltrow's recent Harper's Bazaar appearance not only made headlines for her revealing quotes about everything from her marriage to Chris Martin to getting cheated on by an ex, but for the racy accompanying photos shot by famed photographer Terry Richardson.
In true Gwyneth overshare-style, she recently decided to give her GOOP readers a behind-the-scenes look at "the inner workings of a magazine photo shoot," which is actually pretty great until she decides to ludicrously praise herself.
When talking about the thigh-bearing Anthony Vaccarello dress she admittedly looks great in, she boldly insinuates that she looks better in it than American supermodel Karlie Kloss. She places a photo of herself underneath Karlie's runway shot where both are wearing the same dress, and includes this priceless quote from the shoot's stylist Andrew Richardson.
"We were going for that Helmut Newtonesque power woman quality in the look -- graphic black pieces that highlighted Gwyneth's body, a little more sexy than we're used to seeing on her. She's a gorgeous woman who is confident in her body, and I think it's much sexier to see these looks on her, rather than a 19-year-old model."
Karlie just happens to be exactly 19-years-old.
Yes, Gwyneth looks spectacular, but did she really have to go there?
This being Gwyneth, YES.
