Seeing double: Gwyneth Paltrow does Madonna
Max Factor sure have put Gwyneth Paltrow through her paces since signing her as its “creative inspiration” back in 2012, with the latest collaboration transforming the 41-year-old into Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Farrah Fawcett and even Madonna for a new campaign. Us beauty girls were totally blown away when we saw the pics from the campaign- we’ve never seen Gwynnie looking quite so gorgeous- watch out Chris!
So, you can only imagine how excited we were to get our hands on this incredible behind the scenes video which sees the blonde beauty working her “audacious 80s” look with some serious style. And although Gwynnie admits she has a “fond nostalgia” for the 80s, us beauty girls cannot help but think it a little ironic that Gwynnie also happens to be channelling the style of 80s icon and former BFF Madonna.

Although Gwyneth and Madonna used to be joined at the hip, with Gwynnie once referring to Madonna as being “like an older sister”, relations between the 2 cooled following Madge’s split from Guy Richie in 2008 and took a turn for the worse in 2010 when Madonna also fell out with their mutual personal trainer, Tracy Anderson. Gwyneth said, “It’s good that she doesn’t train Madonna any more. It was too much. She keeps people waiting - it takes up your whole day.” Ouch...

Isn’t it ironic, then, that Gwynnie has taken a trip down memory lane and appears totally at ease dressed up as her former BFF? Paltrow also reveals that she even shaved the side of her head back in the 80s... the only question that remains is, what would Madge say?
