Bold Face explores the cult of celebrity and the styles, trends and brands that stars show off in movies, at events and living their daily lives. To be considered for inclusion please contact senior editor, Deirdre Carroll.

A gold medal Olympian is clearly someone at the peak of human physical fitness. At 16, Gabby Douglas stole the hearts of Americans when she took gold medals in both individual and team competitions at the 2012 Summer Games in London. Since her win, Douglas has kept busy with a nationwide tour, as well as the release of an inspirational autobiography (yes, at 17!) titled, Grace, Gold and Glory: My Leap of Faith, which recounts her journey to the top of the gymnastics world and the struggles she face to become the first African American ever to receive the individual All-Around title, as well as the first American gymnast in history to win both the Team and Individual All-Around Gold. Douglas wears the Nine West NW5037 optical style from Marchon

Obviously, it must take a lot of work in the gym and discipline in the kitchen to reach “Most Beautiful” status. Paltrow, who has been vocal about her clean eating regimen for years, stepped out earlier in the month to support friend and trainer, Tracy Anderson. The two have partnered on a new fitness center, the Tracy Anderson Method, in L.A.
