Tonight is the much anticipated White House Correspondents' Dinner. I guess something like “Washington fatigue” has set in this year, as we won’t be seeing the usual number of our Hollywood glitterati in attendance.
Butt do you know who won’t be missed? The winner of this year’s People’s Magazine most beautiful woman in the world award. No, it wasn’t Lady M…I know, I was surprised too! It was Gwyneth Paltrow! I guess the selection committee decided they couldn’t pick Lady M every year, although they obviously used the same criteria:
They both know how to make the best of their derrière:
Both are big fans of cotton ball fashion:
And both have fabulously toned arms:
I said ARMS!
And, like Lady M, Gwyneth is not really comfortable with capitalism. Despite participating in it in a very big way.
"I love the English way, which is not as capitalistic as it is in America. People don't talk about work and money; they talk about interesting things at dinner parties."
"When you go to Paris and your concierge sends you to some restaurant because they get a kickback, it's like, 'No. Where should I really be? Where is the great bar with organic wine? Where do I get a bikini wax in Paris?'"
She’s also liberal and open minded on social issues:
"I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs."
"I basically love anything that comes in a hot dog bun... except hot dogs.”
And like Mo she’s a big proponent of making kids eat healthy food:
"I would rather die than let my kid eat Cup-a-Soup."
Gwyneth, too, loves organic gardening…
"When I pass a flowering zucchini plant in a garden, my heart skips a beat."
Butt Gwyneth does understand the real purpose of gardening:
"We've got a wood-burning pizza oven in the garden -- a luxury, I know, but it's one of the best investments I've ever made."
Nor does Ms. Paltrow hold back when she believes other people are doing things for the wrong reasons (i.e., purely capitalist).
"Even actresses that you really admire, like Reese Witherspoon, you think, 'Another romantic comedy?' You see her in something like Walk the Line and think, 'God, you're so great!' And then you think, 'Why is she doing these stupid romantic comedies?' But of course, it's for money and status."
Who would do something like that? Do something just for the money and status I mean? Everyone in Washington knows that it’s all about the power…and the money and status that comes with it.
If you don’t believe me, be sure to tune in to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner tonight. A more incestuous gathering of rich, power-mongering status seekers you’d be hard pressed to come by.
The only question: what designer, and what color(s) will Lady M wear this year?

And will she find a place to get a good Brazilian, so she can go commando too?
