Gwyneth Paltrow Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the biggest stars today for a wide variety of reasons, but the 40-year-old actress and recent lifestyle expert (you know you read GOOP) often tends to find herself in the headlines more for her outlandish, affected, and, for lack of a better phrase, downright bougie quotes about her privileged lifestyle.

As the May cover girl for Harper's Bazaar, Paltrow opened up to the mag about a variety of things, including how she was able to survive her 10th winter in London (hint: a private chef and Japanese anime screenings were involved). Obviously, these stellar sound bites got us thinking about the other ridiculous quotes Gwynnie's made over the years. Read on for the best of 'em!

Amanda Bynes It's no secret that it's been an incredibly strange year for former Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes. The 27-year-old actress, who stated that she is a "retired millionaire," has spent the past few months living in a hotel in Times Square and threatening to sue media outlets who question her sanity. She's also been wearing a lot of wigs-and now she's explained why.

In a tweet directed at the folks at E!, Bynes wrote: "I had to shave my head because of hair damage from someone @John Barrett so I'm not loving my paparazzi pics for a few years! I have extensions but you can see them! Loving your shows but suing you for spreading lies about me on your website! Thanks for being my fan!"
This isn't the first time Bynes has spoken out against the swanky John Barrett Salon. In another tweet that's since been deleted, she mentioned that they badly bleached her hair causing a great deal of damage.

Miranda Kerr Say it ain't so!
One of our favorite Victoria's Secret Angels, Miranda Kerr, will reportedly no longer be associated with the lingerie giant. According to Us Weekly, the 30-year-old Australian model has a "difficult reputation" and isn't a big seller for the brand like fellow Angels Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio.

Although her three-year contract isn't being renewed, the brand will still work with Kerr this year, as the brand's chief marketing officer, Ed Razek, stated that she'll still be walking in the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show-ultimate showcase for all Angels.
We can't help but wonder if Kerr's position as a noted animal rights activist who has spoken out about the dangers of certain chemicals had anything to do with it, especially given the fact that Victoria's Secret has a less-than-stellar reputation when it comes to using toxic chemicals.

As a brand, you can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on marketing your products to the masses through commercials and advertisements, but there's really nothing as powerful as, well, star power. In recent years, we've seen countless examples of celebrities who have stepped out in certain items, which subsequently sold out the second the photographs hit the Internet.
Of course, some stars have bigger sell-out powers than others. For example, if someone like Brooke Hogan or a "Teen Mom" star carries a Louis Vuitton bag, it's likely that no one will run and place an order for it. Conversely, we've all know that anything Kate Middleton or Alexa Chung wears will turn into instantly-profitable gold, due to their reputations as serious style setters with tons of would-be emulators.
That said, we've narrowed down the most marketable celebrities when it comes to selling out fashion items. Some are predictable, but others might really surpriseRead More »from Celebrities Who've Caused Fashion Items to Completely Sell Out

Lilly Pulitzer Yesterday, Lillian Bostwick Phipps Pulitzer Rousseau-known to most as Lilly Pulitzer-passed away at 81 years old at her estate in Palm Beach, Florida. The designer, known for her tropical printed dresses, was a high-society fixture for decades, and her designs garnered her the title of the "Queen of Prep."

While everyone who keeps up with fashion recognizes the label's name, few know anything about Pulitzer aside from the fact that she loved slapping colorful motifs (including oranges and bananas) on her clothing. So, in honor of the preppy trailblazer, we've rounded up five facts you probably didn't know about Miss Pulitzer.
1. Yes, that Pulitzer-as in the Pulitzer Prize.

The news comes after a turbulent week for the pair, who were swarmed with paparazzi earlier this week at LAX. Martinez lashed out at the photographers and Berry had to restrain him. This past Thanksgiving, Martinez made headlines after getting into a physical altercation with Gabriel Aubry, the model father of Nahla, Berry's 5-year-old daughter. Berry and Aubry had been involved in a heated custody battle for months that was settled shortly after the men had a fight.

Regardless of age or experience, we've got to admit: There's something about going on a date that still gets us giddy with excitement. Perhaps because we're always finding an excuse to pretty up in cute dresses, high heels, and all those makeup tricks we don't bother attempting otherwise.
With spring in our midst, we have a variety of chic, feminine styles to play with-all of which are ideal for a date night. The trick to the perfect rendez-vous look? Treading the line between sexy and sweet. For all your romantic outings this spring, we suggest keeping the silhouette girly with silky blouses or simple dresses. That said, don't shy away from the on-trend edginess a pair of leather-piped skinny jeans or slouchy leather shorts might offer.
When it comes to the little touches, we're all about the go big or go home mentality. Add bright pops of colors here and there (on your lips, with your bag) to spruce things up a bit, and we're also endorsing the powerRead More »from Ultimate Style Guide: What to Wear on a Date This Spring

Ryan Lochte/Kim Kardashian With his E! reality show "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" premiering April 21 on E!, swimmer Ryan Lochte is set to become a household name in a whole different way. Lochte first became famous thanks to his gold medal winning stint at the 2012 London Olympics, and the series of media appearances that followed where he demonstrated his quirky and loveable frat boy-like personality. As he braces himself for even more exposure, he has one celebrity as his inspiration: Kim Kardashian.

No, it's not because she is pregnant with Kanye West's baby and seems to have an endless supply of Lanvin-it's because she's so successful. "Kim started from pretty much nothing, and now everyone everywhere knows who she is. That's what I want to do," Lochte told The Hollywood Reporter. (Just as an aside, she was raised very wealthy with connections to fame, so she didn't exactly start with nothing.)

These days, star-designed clothing lines are commonplace in the fashion industry. Some are met with such massive acclaim that they shed their "Hollywood" celebrity cache and become seriously respected designers among fashion's elite-much like the Olsen twins and Victoria Beckham.
Others, such as Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, have used their status as MTV reality starlets to create mini fashion empires and have found considerable success in the contemporary retail world among younger consumers.
However, over the years we've seen a sector of other stars-completely random stars, it should be said-who've tried tried their luck in the design world. In fact, some are so strange, you might not even be aware of the fact they've dabbled in fashion. For example, did you know "Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl had her own line of scrubs, or that an *NSYNC band member who isn't Justin Timberlake once had his studded denim jackets sold at Nordstrom?
