Jessica Alba Reveals Her Post-Pregnancy Body-Bounce-Back Secret; Gwyneth Talks (More) Health And Wellness Tips; And More…
As the fallout from Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Most Beautiful” title continues to play out, more and more details are surfacing about the minutiae of her extensive diet-and-exercise regimen. Tracy Anderson Method is in, as we discussed yesterday, as is aerial yoga. Running, however, is a firm no. “Tracy says it builds square quads in a woman, better to do dancing,” says Paltrow. As for her skincare regimen, it’s all about Ilia organic oils. “I am obsessed,” she says. [Elle UK]
While Paltrow’s regimen made her post-pregnancy journey back to the perfect body look easy, Jessica Alba chose a slimming road less traveled. “I wore a double corset, day and night, for three months,” she reveals of her struggle to lose weight following the birth of her daughter Honor. “It was sweaty but worth it.” [Net-A-Porter]
Butter London, the cheeky British nail brand responsible for No More Waity, Katie, a lilac glitter greige polish created in homage of Kate Middleton’s engagement to Prince William, has just announced the launch of Pitter Patter.

All right, style tribe members: The show has begun. With fashion month officially under way and no rest in sight until early March, the time for prep work to get your head and body in gear has passed. But there are a few expert tips that should help make facing each day a little easier. Just ask Salma Hayek. “I’m never without my black Saint Laurent blazer, a good pair of black jeans, or Gucci walking boots with small high heels, which are essential for traveling,” says the front-row regular who plans to be very present at Christopher Kane and Gucci this season. Also important to Hayek’s jet-set lifestyle? Juicing. After becoming addicted to Juice Generation, the actress/mother/director cofounded Cooler Cleanse in 2008, a juicing company that delivers bottled juices to your home in fresh, chilled packs. “I do my [juice] cleanse for a day or two, sometimes even three days, depending on the level of the damage I have done,” Hayek jokes, alluding to her hectic schedule that includes constant back-and-forth between film and fashion sets. “Cleansing is like a meditation. It makes me stop, focus, and think about what I’m putting into my body,” she adds. As meditative focus becomes harder and harder to attain over the next few weeks, Hayek shares the recipe for her essential green juice, right here, right now. “It’s a great way to start your day, and is full of vitamins—plus it’s great for your skin,” she says. Street-style superstardom, here we come.
Essential Green Juice
Handful of spinach
3 stalks of celery
Small handful of parsley
3 leaves of green kale
2 Bartlett pears, seeded
1/4 lemon, peeled
1/2 cucumber, peeled
Bunch up the spinach, parsley, and kale and push through juicer with the celery and pear. Follow with the cucumber and lemon. Scrape off the foam and serve over ice. For variation, add dandelion greens or watercress.

More details are emerging about Gwyneth Paltrow’s highly anticipated second cookbook, “It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy, Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great.” Set for release on April 2, the tome reportedly comprises a collection of 185 “restorative” dishes of the sugar-free, non-dairy, vegetarian, wheat-free, and non-alcoholic variety that are based on a restrictive “elimination diet” that Paltrow claims helped her lose weight and feel more energetic. Mmmm. [NYDN]

Salma Hayek Pinault took a page out of the Fall trend book earlier this month when she cut herself a set of brow-grazing fringe. But the Here Comes the Boom star has been plenty willing to slick her bangs back or to the side, as though they didn’t exist at all, affording her a certain versatility with the style. This weekend, at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles, however, Mrs. François-Henri Pinault opted to go full force with her forehead accoutrement to balance out the towering updo she sported with her black, one-shoulder gown. Which look do you like better?
