Do you ever stop and think about your favorite celebrities and what they must be like out of the public eye?

I often wonder that about Gwyneth Paltrow. When she’s out and about in the city she always looks so calm and collected, like she knows she’s the most badass bitch on the planet and she can have anything she wants. With any other celebrity like this, I would assume at home they’re insane, but with Gwyneth, I’m pretty sure she’s the HBIC all the time.

The chic actress, who just celebrated her 40th birthday in gorgeous Italy, looked marvelous in New York City as she arrived at the Standard Hotel. Gwyneth wowed in a white skirt and knit top complete with bright orange pumps and a blue Chanel bag. Think those are on her list of must haves for the season?

Let’s be honest here, the best thing in the world is when Gwyneth tells us to go buy $18,000 worth of new spring clothes. Next week her website GOOP will probably say something like, “Everyone needs a $2,000 Chanel purse! Just go pick one up at your local Neimans!” Sure Gwyneth, we’ll get right on that.

Launch the gallery to check out all the photos of Ms. Paltrow looking lovely. Seriously, she’s 40 but looks exactly the same as she did when she played Emma in 1996.
