Story Teller Gwyneth Paltrow
I adore everything that is Gwyneth Paltrow and especially when it comes to social media. Paltrow created Goop.com where you will have a global movie star share with her lifestyle.
When I mean sharing a lifestyle, Gwyneth seems to have a tactile like quality in her photos and story telling of her experience. From her 9 AM call time and through out her day she shares her photo shoot experience from wardrobe pulls to a decedent choice of accessories.
Her glamorous experience continues as she goes into hair and makeup. Who couldn’t resist a photo while Gwyneth hair is getting did!
Her photo shoot in an Yves Saint Laurent jump suit is next. This made the cover of Harper’s Bazaar.
I loved this amazingly constructed bare full legged Anthony Vaccarello dress.
Finally she shares a photo of herself in what I call “perfect lace patisserie” by Alexander McQueen.
Paltrow shares everything from the music they were listening to (N.W.A. and Public Enemy) to what she was reading at the shoot (Ali in Wonderland by Ali Wentworth), and even some hot Urban Outfitters alternatives to recreate her look.
Marketing Machine & Branding Partnership
Aside from her blog Gwyneth Paltrow tweets during the Grammy’s and is photographed with Rianna while wearing this amazing Stella McCartny cleverly cut dress.
I love celebrities that just get it and it really is just about sharing your day in the life while highlighting the glamorous events like the Grammy’s. The reason why this is so socially popular is that Gwyneth Paltrow is like texting a close friend on her experience with you. There is a social intimacy when someone shares photos or up to the minute updates.
Building relationships socially is an art. Brand partnership is such a great way to cross-promote each other and elevate your presence in social media circles. A great example is this tweet by Harper’s Bazaar.
The natural re-tweet by Gwyneth Paltrow is a natural way to thank someone for a mention and share with her Twitter followers.
I really love Gwyneth Paltrow blog. The fashion information alone is wonderful but her blog doesn’t stop there. It is a well-versed blog. Have a look at www.Goop.com and sign up for her newsletter.
Gwyneth’s time-saving tips:
- Schedule your time well. When I know what I am doing from hour to hour I get more done. Write it all in the day’s calendar, what you want to accomplish and in what time frame.
- Focus on the task at hand. Be thorough.
- I cook a lot, especially on the weekends, so I like to plan a rough menu for the whole weekend and get the food in on Friday. Obviously, stores and websites that deliver make this a dream. In London I use Ocado. Also James Knight, my favorite fishmonger, will deliver. Having all of the ingredients means I’m prepared even when I don’t think I am.
- I always lay the kids uniforms and school things out the night before once they are asleep. When it’s quiet I can check the “kid list” for show and tell items to bring in, consent forms, ballet kit, etc, so that the morning is less of a scramble.
- The school run is a great time to return calls (in whichever direction that the kids are not in the car) so don’t forget your hands-free device.
