#7: Unphotoshopped: Goop's the Boss
It remains a mystery why Gwyneth Paltrow took a break from perfecting her recipe for lemon ricotta toast to pose for an ad for Hugo Boss's new fragrance. Maybe she was feeling a spring malaise that couldn't be cured by planting curled parsley in a solid gold watering can. Or perhaps she was in the mood to practice her daily ritual of sprawling in neutrals, but this time in front of a camera for TWO MILLION DOLLARS.
Obviously, Hugo Boss set out to create an understated, equestrian-who-doesn't-touch-horses mood. Still, we found it to be little barebones, so we set out to find the original, unphotoshopped version.
Don't worry! She'll donate all the food to starving children—er, the ones who model bikinis on her web site.
Editor's Note: We're glad you guys appreciate a good old-fashioned rich-shaming as much as we do. That said, we need to redact this whole piece (GOOP sent us a box of a dozen $80 plain white t-shirts).
