Gwyneth Paltrow Hosted a No-Makeup Dinner & Everyone from Kate Hudson to Demi Moore Was Bare-Faced

When Gwyneth Paltrow asks you to attend a star-studded dinner without a stitch of makeup on, you do it. At least that’s how a handful of celebs (like Kate Hudson, Demi Moore and Rachel Zoe) reacted when the 47-year-old Goop founder invited them to her Glow to Dinner event.

The premise was simple: Keep it real and show up looking like your truest self—no makeup, no filter, just your natural beauty. Unsurprisingly, there was some beautiful skin in the building at Paltrow’s Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, event earlier this week.

Moore attended with her daughter, Rumer Willis. Writer/entrepreneur Erin Foster (wearing Reformation) was there cradling the bump of stylist Jamie Mizrahi. Stylist to the stars Zoe, who’s never without her signature eyeliner and lashes, stripped down and rocked a bare face. Even Keanu Reeve’s girlfriend artist Alexandra Grant attended. Paltrow, of course, looked resplendent in a fresh face, natural hair and a dusty pink Oscar de La Renta minidress with balloon sleeves and nude suede flats.

The Politician star shared a series of photos from the evening on Instagram, one of which featured her posing between Grant and Moore.

“Had the immense pleasure of interviewing @grantalexandra one of THE most brilliant, expansive, talented thinkers I have ever had the pleasure of speaking with,” Paltrow wrote. “A beautiful gathering in celebration of beauty just the way we come.” She added, “The one on my left ain’t so bad either. #nomakeup #goopglow,” referring to Moore.

Many attendees shared their own Instagram snaps, explaining how it felt liberating (and, OK, a little terrifying) to attend such an affair with zero makeup on.

All we can say is kudos to you, Gwyneth, for celebrating natural beauty.

Wait, Gwyneth Paltrow Doesn’t Live with Her New Husband, Brad Falchuk?
