[quote]GWYNETH PALTROW may be the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman,” but she sure doesn’t smell like it! The Oscar winner had terrible body odor at New York’s Met Ball on May 6, an eyewitness told The ENQUIRER – but no one at the swanky red-carpet event had the guts to tell her. Poor Gwyneth looked picture-perfect, but it must have been the hot lights that caused her to be a little strong on the nose,” said a source, who got a little too close to the blonde beauty. “It was pretty pungent, and I don’t think she had a clue. I saw at least two people wave their hands in front of their noses after passing her.”
The article goes on to say GP doesn't trust antiperspirants because they contain aluminum (or, as she probably would say, "aluminium").
No she speaks Spanish honey. Didn't you see her on that show with Mario"The Whale" Batali? You know that guy that fucked her left and right in Spain. Imagine her not bathing for a week and having his stank all over her body after she's just been fucked? Worst BO ever......
Il ne paraît pas qu'ils soient...
What's the difference?
Also, this must be why Goop didn't have a good time there. Nobody wanted to talk to her!
She probably uses some natural shit for deodorant which doesn't work
This is funny. You just know someone at the Met has a friend at the Enquirer and they planted this story to get back at her for slagging off the Met Ball.
You should smell her pussy.
R4: She fucked Mario Batali? Gross.
even if you didn't hate her before you'll just dislike her now.

Exactly. And considering the "met ball" is the domain of hungry anorexic slags and catty, bitchy fags the vindictiveness is par for the course.
Maybe someone should tell her that there are plenty of harmless substances out there that get rid of the smell.
OK I do not like antiperspirant either (I am fearful of the Aluminum) - so does anyone suggest a workable alternative?
None of the natural ones that I tried worked. And the smell kept getting worse.
Call me stat.
There are three truths that are self evident in life. Death,taxes and the fact that Gwyneth Paltrow will always be a cunt.
Lots of nasty assholes at the Met and Enquirer. Too bad they're still in junior or high school emotionally and mentally.
Mean girls indeed.
I'll never stop wearing antiperspirant and/or deodorant, because, guess what- it works. And I'm even more glad other people use it.
Until now, and except for the amusing reactions to her that I read here, I've always been indifferent to Paltrow, but not anymore-she really does think her shit doesn't stink.
Della, there's a difference between antiperspirant and deodorant.
Yes, one of them makes you addlepated, and the other one does not.
I like a health b.o. smell on my mens, just sayin'. Longtime strong b.o. is a turnoff, howev.
There are many people who believe the aluminum in antiperspirants is unhealthy and potentially dangerous, especially because it's applied so close to the lymph nodes.
Deodorant, especially natural deodorants, are not viewed as being potentially dangerous.
I use alum and I have for years. Works great for me. YMMV but there are some great choices on the market now.
R13, I've been happy with the product I use that's called Alvera. I've also heard good things about Primal Paste, although I haven't tried it.
The natural ones are getting pretty good. I sweat a lot and can be smelly and they work pretty well on me.
R23 which ones?
That's disgusting, those poor people who had to put up with that. There's nothing worse than B.O.
I go without deo on the weekends. I like to lick a guy's sweaty pits.
[quote]considering the "met ball" is the domain of hungry anorexic slags and catty, bitchy fags the vindictiveness is par for the course
Agreed. High on the list of reasons to bring back the guillotine.
She probably thinks her bowel movements smell like bakery fresh cinnamon rolls!
[quote]OK I do not like antiperspirant either (I am fearful of the Aluminum) - so does anyone suggest a workable alternative?
Baking soda mixed with water to make a paste, right under the arms. Used it for years with great results. Simple, inexpensive, and totally natural. Probably won't stop excessive sweating, but it kills all odors.
But you've got an unsightly pudding in your armpits, r31.
I use Right Guard deodorant. The basic gel kind. I don't get particularly sweaty and this stuff works very well. No aluminum. I kind of think blocking up your sweat glands is unhealthy, but if the alternative is going around with huge pit stains, then I guess for some people it is worth the risk.
No I don't r32. You don't use a ton of it and glump it on under there - I use barely a teaspoon and mix it with water so that its very thin (almost watery) and it dries easily and nearly clear.
Try it - if you have huge sweating issues it might not be enough to assist but for the average person it's great. Its supposed to be alkalizing too, which is healthy.
Tom's of Maine deodorant does not work for me.
I've tried the baking soda thing, but developed a painful rash after a few days, so that's out too.
Any other suggestions that have worked for people?
I read Elvis took some kind of pills that made him not sweat.
That worked out well for him.
He wasn't poisoning himself with aluminum.
Sorry to be terribly sexist for a moment: But BO is bad enough on a guy, but on a woman? Yikes.
R34 I can confirm this. Baking soda gets rid of the smell, and body odor actually, and a light hydrogen peroxide solution works great as well.
Pit Stop is great. They also make a formula for women called Pit Powder.
Bet she swears off deodorant as part of her healthy living lifestyle. Remember Gwinny Goop, nobody wants to stand next to a stinky, no matter how famous they are.
I hate antiperspirant, it makes my armpits itch like a fucker. But deodorant is fine and I don't mind a little sweat under there, who cares?
r40 I've heard hydrogen peroxide is great as well, alone or mixed with the baking soda. Adds to the germ and bacteria killing capability (bacteria is what causes bo).
Oh, God, every time I think I've apologized enough...
People who don't use antiperspirants should be quarantined. I don't care if it kills you. Put it on!
I've been using Thai crystal for 18 years. Never once had a problem with stinking pits.
GOOP SMELLS LIKE POOP!
Andy Warhol said Jerry Hall had bad B.O. also. It's in his published diaries.
[quote]Baking soda mixed with water to make a paste, right under the arms.
Is it okay to scrape some out of your armpit and use it for baking?
I will bet you ten bucks that Anna Wintour is the source of this little item!
Gwynnie criticized her ball in the press, and if you embarrass Anna "Nuclear" Wintour there's going to be payback.
Vodka swabbed in the pits.
Perhaps she is on a low carb diet. Many people stink when undergoing ketosis.
Or maybe it's one of those Zen diets
This thread is starting to reek of MitchFest
[quote]Vodka swabbed in the pits.
Or better yet, drink copious amounts and have it seep out of your skin.
Why do you all insist on spelling aluminium aluminum?
Enough with the innocent act, Blythe. You like to pretend you're above it all, but you wanted your grandchildren to call you Woof. We know who you are.
I've been telling this to people for YEARS.
She always stank.
I was just waiting for Miss Wintour to lash back at Gwyneth for dissing her party.
Ms Wintour certainly has an odd sense of humour!
[quote]She fucked Mario Batali? Gross.
Well, it sure as hell wasn't ME!
I used to use antiperspirant until my uncle gave me Lancome Bocage deodorant. He got a twin-pack in a duty-free store when he flew in for a visit.
I will never go back. That stuff is amazing. Smells so good and lasts a long time. It's expensive but well worth it.
R62 Bitty did you fuck Claudia Bassols' boyfriend because she just didn't seem like your type? Gwennie has a pussy too so that counts her out and she smells like a steaming pile of shit. Or was there a moment with Mario in Spain? Please tell us....
What makes you think it's underarm odor. Maybe it's cooch
another vote for baking soda...
Love how everyone is blaming Wintour for this. PSYCH.
If this is true, why would designers loan her dresses when she stinks them up?
Of course it's not true, R68. It's a childish made-up attack. In every photo I've seen of Paltrow since she and Pitt ended, her hair has been clean and shiny and her skin looks great. No way her hygiene is bad; with long straight blond hair and a fair complexion, it would be obvious.
I think we all remember the Pitt days when they were into heroin chic with their dirty stringy hair.
r69, it's not a matter of clean, shiny hair. It's a matter of being in a hot room w/o having worn deodorant. Many of my students (particularly the international ones) look spectacular and smell to high heaven.
R70, part of that is due to diet. Frankly, I'm surprised any of your fair blond students would smell like that.
When your hygiene is good, even if you get hot and perspire it's not going to be the kind of odor the Enquirer described.
Why is this woman always in the news? Just today I read she got in trouble for saying she had on so much make up that she looked like RuPaul and said "last night I was literally a transvestite."
I'm a very fair, blue eyed blonde and am just like everybody else when it comes to perspiration. I have never heard skin color or hair color related to perspiration before. It's nuts. Also, I thought Batali and that REM guy were the item. I can't remember his name now. He's the famous one. I can see his little bald head - looks like a soulful Niles Crane - what's his name??? God I'm getting old!
I know people are blaming vindictive Met workers, but I always wondered about her to begin with.
All you have to do is take one look at Chris Martin and you just know the both of them reek. Chris looks dirty, disheveled and stinky, so it would stand to reason that they are similar in their hygenic habits.
It would also make sense as to why people were avoiding her at the party. And if you read the article, it wasn't mean spirited. It actually made some excuses for her, like the room was hot, etc.
[quote]I have never heard skin color or hair color related to perspiration before.
Even though you admit to being a blond, try to keep up, R73. The point about long straight blond hair was all about hygiene and showering, not perspiration. If you don't keep long straight blond hair clean (which means showering / shampooing), it shows real fast. On a purely visual basis, other hair types and colors can get by without shampooing a little longer.
You can try anti-bacterial ointment.
As I see it, there's some hypocrisy about Gwyneth and her "healthy habits." First of all, does she still smoke? Yes, Gwyneth was and may still be a smoker. Nicotine. She also tokes a joint now and then. Marijuana.
She also drinks alcohol. Vodka. And wine. And sometimes high end imported beers. nd Soda. Yes. She drinks soda. She is not vegan. So she eats red meat. Probably the finest grass fed beef,but still.
And she definitely drinks coffee. High end specially brewed coffee, but all these things taken together contribute to bad breath and body odor.
So yo can't do things by halves. she is going to stop wearing deodorant, then she will have to change all her habits. or she will be stanky.
The other thing is, maybe that dress was stinky. Brand new fabric, couture, etc. sometimes there is definitely an odor to them. I think someone at the Met Gala was unnecessarily brutal to leak that. With all her nonsense, I like Gwyneth.
One word: perimenopause
Gwynnie thinks the over-priced, obnoxious restaurant Babbo is heaven on earth!
Anyone freaked by this aluminum might give me Alzheimer's crap is bizarre, probably the same people who go on "juice fasts" so that thy can give their colon "a rest"!
You may well be on to something, R79.
I just don't get people who can work out for two hours a day, and "juice" then smoke and drink and eat and think they are "insured" against the unpleasantness of life.
Maybe she's just lazy and often skips showers.
Kate Bosworth's pits smell like HEAVEN.
Deodorant alternative: Chlorophyll tablets. They work.
She should use Tom's Natural Deodorant
I use Mitchum deodorant powder stick and it's great. When people have extreme body odor doesn't that mean that the person contains a lot of toxins in their body and they need to detox themselves? I don't think that is normal.
No it means their body produces more apocrine sweat that attracts the bacteria that eats the compounds in that type of sweat and produces that stench as a byproduct.
Thank You R87.
I called my daughter-in-law who attended the gala and, being a bitch myself, asked her if the Gwyneth item was true. She said, not only was it true, people were intentionally walking by her to get a whiff. And she also said it was part BO/part fabric sizing chemicals.
D-i-l will now be a DL regular.
Look at the material on the dress she's wearing. I think that would make anyone sweat and smell. I hate wearing non-cotton clothing. And I'm not some granola maniac. I wear deodorant with antiperspirant. I live in Dallas. It's a must.
Nam EW ste.
Think of the poor person that actually buys that dress after she returns it. Thousands of dollars and b/o stains that will never come out.
See? I knew it was fabric related as much as it was her. And I'm not so sure it was her. she wouldn't have to have BO. All she'd have to do is sweat, and trigger the chemicals in the fabric, especially in a hot, crowded situation.
Have none of you ever been to a summer wedding in a church or a house with no air conditioning? Ugh. Fabric and fabric sizing chemicals can be very offensive.
I think the entire National Enquirer expose is humiliating and terribly mean spirited. If you were in her position you'd feel horrible. Gwyneth needs to fire the stylist and really raise hell with the people at Valentino who dressed her. They are the ones who look like amateurs. She's a victim.
Fabric sizing chemicals? I've never heard of this before. Though I have noticed sometimes there's a "new clothes" smell and stiffness to some garments. How do these chemicals work?
Fabric sizing chemicals?
Back in my day people used measuring tapes.
There is no way out for Gwynnie at this point, nothing she does is right. She should self-deport.
I guess wearing hideous dresses makes one sweat and stink more than usual.
Well, when you're dealing with a 120 pound cunt what do you expect?
You just KNOW that bitch pulled out all the stops so Valentino would give her a free dress. Who'd buy that funked up piece of shit she was wearing?
If the dress were put on an eBay auction, you know there are enough dippy goop acolytes out there who would bid for it. Sixty of them plunked down $2000 apiece for a cooking lesson with Gynnie, after all. It could be like a game worn athletic jersey from a pro athlete. She could autograph it and advertise "suitable or framing."
i'm a redhead - pale skin & freckles - and i sweat quite a bit - no problem with heat exchange!
but - my skin reacts badly to a lot of the chemicals in various deodorants - and even those stupid 'natural crystal' things - that apparently contain more aluminum than mass produced commercial deodorants. I end up with bad dermatitis - it isn't pretty!
I also hate the stink on a lot of the deodorants & anti perspirants on the market - cheap and nasty - and really strong! I don't wanna smell like that.
Used to use biotherm's deo stick - but then it bacme hard to get 'cos there was some chemical innit that wasn't approved of by the american FDA - and the roll-on just wasn't as good. Started using the arm & hammer baking soda stick available from drugstores in the united states when visiting (i'm in australia) and it was great - but you can't get em here...
eventually went back to some research i'd read about years ago in britain (where they know a thing or two about BO!). supposedly they found that if you gently wash under each armpit with soap and a facecloth for a minute each day for a week - then cut back to thirty seconds each after that - it evacuates the sweat glands and keeps 'em free of stale sweat an' BO.
Providing I do it gently (skin in my pits is sensentive and if i scub too hard it ends up chafed and sore) and with a good soap - ph balanced like sebamed - it seems to work fine. doesn't stop me from sweating that much - esp on humid summer days1 - but doesn't smell bad at all & i don't reek of chemicals or end up with dermatitis. only ever daub on deodorant now if it's expecially hot and i'm dressed up for a business event or something...
recommend the method - but obviously there'd be no profit in it for any industry much - so it isn't gonna attract any marketing or advertising bucks to promote it :(
R12, I use Tom's deodorant, the lemongrass scent. I'd tried other deodorants and they weren't that effective. This one works well for me. Tom's also has other scents.
[quote]She's a victim.
So are all of us who have to listen to the foul, rancid, shit that comes pouring out of her mouth every time she opens it.
Did you see the dress she wore to the event? It was a knit with long sleeves and the only open part was a small area at each shoulder. It would have been stiflingly hot and, unless it was a natural fiber, it would have gotten very stinky. My guess is that BO is not typical for her. If it were, she would know it by now and have a solution for it.
