Gwyneth Paltrow's Hugo Boss Fragrance Ads: Get a Behind-the-Scenes Look!

08/18/2014 at 04:15 PM ET

It would be hard to have a better summer than Gwyneth Paltrow is having right now. She has been enjoying wide open spaces, cooking photogenic, fresh meals, launching her own boutique — and modeling in some gorgeous clothes for her latest Hugo Boss ads. We got an exclusive look at the behind-the-scenes images, and it looks like all that hydration is paying off — she’s as radiant in her off-duty moments as she is in the glamorous ad.

This is Paltrow’s third outing with Hugo Boss fragrances — she was sultry for Boss Nuit, sunny for Boss Jour and now is in fully glam CEO mode as the face of Boss Ma Vie, a scent about which she gushed to Elle UK, “It’s so personal and immediate; it smells different on everyone. When I wear it, it gives me a feeling and I just like that feeling.”

Added Paltrow in a statement to PEOPLE, “I love the concept behind the fragrance and that it represents a time to pause and take a moment. I have these moments every day where I think how beautiful life is. It’s those moments that are so simple and so pure, and that really connect you to your heart.” The perfume combines notes of cactus blossom accord, pink freesia and cedarwood for a scent that is inspired by “the independent spirit of a woman,” something that Paltrow knows something about. After all, she loves to mix up her fragrances depending on her mood, she tells Elle UK: “I’m drawn to an eclectic mix of scents. I wear different ones depending on my mood that day. I wear men’s cologne, really feminine florals, citrusy things and really musky woodsy ones too.”

And while we’re intrigued by the fragrance, we really wanted to know about her killer suit — designed by pal (and new Hugo Boss womenswear creative director) Jason Wu. “I think that every woman should have a black blazer or tuxedo jacket, because it’s so versatile and a really key staple piece in a wardrobe,” Paltrow says. “If it’s well tailored it’s so feminine while being a strong shape. I’m really happy that we’ve got a tuxedo for this campaign, I think it looks beautiful.” Adds Wu: “I like the idea of acknowledging the tailoring history of the company, but by really embracing the body, the feminine form. There’s nothing more chic and powerful than a tuxedo.”

Excited to check out the new scent? How pretty are these pictures? Weigh in below!

Brother. She’s skinny but pretty? Nah. Too much media hype around her including GOOP.

Sunny on

I usually love women in suits but she can’t pull it off. At least not in these photos. She is giving me taylor swift vibes.

Susan on

I can’t imagine anyone in the US buying anything she hawks. She has said soooo many negative things about the people here in the US. She belongs back in the UK with her bud Madonna.

Guest on

Don’t care for her but she looks good here.

Laurie on

Pretty? No. The suit,,nooooooo. A good actress ..yes. A cute ex husband? Definately.

Style mom on

She should consciously uncouple from her ego.

Julie The Wife on

Great advertorial, People.

Charli on

That’s a great look!

Mel on

Is it just me or does she look like Kirsten Dunst in the top photo?

Fegs on

She is so full of herself.

Judy Wilson on

Robin thank you for all the minutes and hours of laughter. My condolences to your family ; it is so hard to say goodbye just remember this separation is only temporary. We shall all be united in heaven.

Jess on

I LOVE the fact that Chris Martin is now dating Jennifer Lawrence! She is the exact OPPOSITE of Gwyneth Paltrow. Jennifer isn’t a control freak and isn’t afraid to eat gluten.

Guest on

Homely! No thanks.

Laura on

She put the weave in again….I agree with the phony hype surrounding her. I would not buy anything she hawks.

Ginger on

She does look very pretty in that picture.

janet on

These Hugo Boss ad pictures are at least a year old. These are not the current ones if she has been shooting new ads.

Jessica on

She is absolutely breathtaking.

trost on

She’s a beautiful woman. Her hair and suit look fabulously flawless. She hasn’t done anything to deserve the vitriol spewed at her.

Jack on

Wow! Gwyneth actually listed something I, a simple peasant CAN AFFORD!!!! Thank you Queen Gwyneth for taking the time to advise the poor on something within our economical reach. Your generosity knows no end.

Liza Delvitto on

Gwyneth you are not model material. Go back to England and look for another victim to call your husband. You hate the US and poor people…anyone beneath you and face it–who isn’t beneath you by your standards…so go someplace where you will be among your own class of people: go to H€ll.

pete on

Trost, there are reasons why people do not like her. I love her mother, talented, just a down to earth wonderful actress and human being. As for Gwyneth, just the opposite. I, too agree, that she has said so many bad things about US, just don’t come back. Stay in England. We will be better off. Gwyneth is pretty but so are a lot of females. She had a famous father and mother. She had a foot in the door right away, even though she may have had some talent. If only she would go away!

MMH on

Are these reacent pictures? In the top piture it looks like she is wearing a wedding band.

sandy on

shes gorgeous

Angela on

over rated.

kim on

Her hair looks great. I like her as an actress.

Monica on

I guess they told her no matter what keep your lips pressed together… she looks uncomfortable. Perhaps commercials are just beneath her, but since nothing else is going on, she takes it.

Sorry on

It all looks so forced and fake. Not buying it.

JD on

She looks stunning! She’s the most beautiful she’s ever been!

Dennis on

My goodness, leave the woman alone. You’ve never met her, you’ve never walked in her shoes, and stop living vicariously by degrading a human being you have never met. I have been a victim of gossip, as well as trial by innuendo, and until you have been, you’ll never understand how hurtful it is. BTW,I am not a fan (or non-fan), and watched her in a movie only once (supporting role), but I cannot stand lynch mob mentality! I, for one, wish her well. Try it, you may feel better about yourselves!
