Gwyneth Paltrow organized an exclusive A-list dinner in Beverly Hills on Wednesday evening with one strict instruction: no makeup allowed.
The 47-year-old Oscar-winning star invited her friends Kate Hudson, 40, Demi Moore, 57 and Rachel Zoe, 48, to the event, where she promoted her new Goop Glow skin products.
Alexandra Grant, 47, an artist from Los Angeles who is dating Keanu Reeves, also attended the starry night.
Not everyone seemed enthusiastic about the no-makeup theme; stylist Zoe seemed to ignore the request by wearing thick mascara and lip gloss.
Another friend of Paltrow – co-president of Baby2Baby Kelly Sawyer – admitted on Instagram that she was not “in love” with the idea of attending a party with bare faces.
But Moore, who was accompanied at the event by her daughter Rumer Willis, 31, seemed happy with the opportunity to dump the glam squadron.

Paltrow launched its lifestyle brand Goop in 2008 as a weekly newsletter.
She has turned it into a ‘wellness’ empire, including fashion collections, skincare lines, fragrances, furniture, brick and mortar, a magazine and a podcast.
She recently released a new show, The Goop Lab, on streaming giant Netflix.
The founder of Goop is the mother of daughter Apple and son Moses, 13, from her first marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 42, with whom she was married from 2003 to 2014.
