Gwyneth Paltrow’s selfies are all about the hats, not so much with the makeup

Gwyneth Paltrow selfie

Gwyneth Paltrow seems to be sharing an au naturel look this summer when it comes to selfies. Refreshingly, the actress and mother is putting down the makeup artist’s number and picking up hats to accessorize her selfies. 

Three weeks ago, Paltrow shared her American pride on Independence Day by displaying an American Flag had and big black sunglasses. Looking like she’d just come off the beach with family on the big weekend, Gwyneth sported wet hair, a smile on her face and a healthy glow. 

Three days ago, Gwyneth Paltrow once again returned to Instagram to share yet another look at a stylish hat moment, only this time she had switched beach for buffalo. The selfie was shot out West and shows Paltrow wearing a cowboy hat and, what appears to be, zero makeup. 

Seems these days it’s all about the makeup-less selfies when it comes to celebs. The cynical side of my brain tells me this is a whole ploy to say “we’re just like you” and gain the public’s trust. But then again, maybe certain celebs really do just feel like sharing the “real them.” An interesting argument to be made on both sides, if looking at it from a self-promotion angle.
