Gwyneth Paltrow: 40th Birthday Fun in NYC

Posted Thursday October 11, 2012 1:55 PM GMT

Making the most of her big 4-0, Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated her birthday with a delicious dinner out in New York City last Friday (October 5).

Joined by Cameron Diaz, the “Shakespeare in Love” lady hit up Elio’s restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper East Side where other friends like Beyonce Knowles, Chelsea Handler, Kristin Wiig, and mother Blythe Danner all gathered.

Meanwhile, Gwyn’s website has joined forces with Birchbox for a limited edition sampler set for ladies.

Birchbox’s Katia Beauchamp explained, "GOOP is a big brand now, but it's so cool that it feels small and special. It means we'll be reaching more people and our existing subscribers can be exposed to something new. Gwyneth is part of the team, and she's so involved in everything that is chosen. We sent products to her and she tried them."
