Gwyneth Paltrow is in a state of deep focus. The new Goop office is under construction—“it's like a dust bowl,” she says with a laugh—so today she's helming her company from the kitchen island of her Los Angeles home. Fitting, considering it was at her kitchen table (then in London) that Paltrow, 43, started Goop as a newsletter to friends nearly eight years ago. Since then, she has built Goop into a global brand: It has produced sought-after collaborations with Valentino and Stella McCartney; opened pop-up shops; and brought terms like conscious uncoupling and vaginal steaming to the masses (the first a description of her amicable split from husband Chris Martin of Coldplay; the second, a way to cleanse one's uterus—don't try it at home).
