Gwyneth Paltrow
InStyle

Our October issue marks the fifth time Gwyneth Paltrow has graced our cover! For this go around, the actress, mom, and Goop.com founder headed to Milk Studios in Los Angeles (with children Apple and Moses in tow!) where she posed in this Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci look, as well as her pretty plum cover jumpsuit by Diane von Furstenberg, who interviewed her for the cover story. “I’ve become much more serious after experiencing all the ups and downs of life—heartbreak, the death of people I love,” she told the designer. “These days I feel pretty grounded.” And her reenergized attitude shows! Click through the gallery to see more on-set photos and get the inside scoop from her cover shoot. Then, click over to InStyle‘s Facebook to watch an exclusive video.
