After all the rumors, photo evidence finally confirms that Gwyneth Paltrow will grace the cover of the June issue of Bon Appetit. Food blogger Pim Techamuanvivit tweeted the photo of a smiling Gwyneth in a light blue dress this morning and The Feast has an exclusive look at the June issue.
In his first completely redesigned issue, new editor-in-chief Adam Rapoport is signaling at least a small shift in editorial focus by having a celebrity on the cover. In his letter from the editor, he explains, "So putting people on our covers is something we feel good about. It's something we'll do a few times a year. Of course, they've got to be the right people, and they've got to love food. Paltrow is famous, but she also loves to cook for her friends and family; she's as comfortable and confident in her kitchen as she is on a film set."
The Gwyneth feature, titled "The Girl Can Cook" consists of an article, photo spread and several recipes. The June issue also features Chefs Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli's suggestions for Copenhagen and British chef Fergus Henderson and his wife Margot's instructions and recipes for a Sunday roast.

So, who is next? Sheryl Crow or Eva Longoria?
