Gwyneth Paltrow Shows Off Her Animal Instincts In The March Issue Of Harper's Bazaar

In the March 2011 "Fashion to Music" issue of Harper's Bazaar (out on Thursday), Gwyneth Paltrow opens up to the magazine about Beyoncé, her new film Country Strong and her love-it-or-hate-it newsletter Goop.

Most importantly - at least to us - the actress looks pretty amazing channelling her inner sex kitten in the accompanying shoot, photographed by Alexi Lubomirski.

Wearing designers like Gucci, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana and Louis Vuitton, Gwyneth embraces the '70s look with her voluminous blowout, smoky eye makeup and animal-and-exotic-skin print outfits.

In one photo, she lounges on a red chair in a snakeskin print dress with cut-out panels, while in another, she leans back precariously in a red velvet chair, wearing a glamazon zebra-striped jumpsuit and red peep-toe heels, with lashings and lashings of gold jewellery.

Paltrow looks so fierce and fabulous, in fact, that we're reminded of her recent red carpet outing in that super-revealing and sexy, white, backless Pucci dress.

Wild thing. Alexi Lubomirski for Harper's Bazaar

One thing's for sure: Gwyneth has quite the wild side. And we can't wait to see more of it.
