Taylor Swift is reportedly using Gwyneth Paltrow as her body icon when exercising.

Gwyneth has worn a string of fashion-forward looks lately, many of which have shown off her toned figure. She opted for a purple Victoria Beckham mini-dress for the opening of her trainer Tracy Anderson's studio last month and also wore a daring Antonio Berardi dress with sheer panels to the Iron Man 3 premiere in Los Angeles.

She has long credited Tracy with helping keep her in shape, and country singer Taylor is now determined to mimic Gwyneth's killer body

"Taylor thinks her legs are too skinny and her butt is too flat. She wants strong curves the way Gwyneth has," a source told Heat magazine.

"Taylor's really dedicated. If Tracy isn't available, she works out with one of Tracy's trainers at her home four to five days a week and when she's on the road she does it via Skype. She does 45 minutes of cardio dancing and an hour of Pilates toning and training. her body confidence has never been higher and she's so happy she took Gwyneth's advice about working out with Tracy."

Victoria Beckham is also said to be holding Gwyneth up as her body idol. There have been several reports that the fashion designer has overhauled her exercise regime in an effort to change her body, with Victoria said to be particularly keen to boost her butt.

She has been working with Tracy too and is concentrating on her quads and upper thighs. Her husband soccer star David has even downloaded some up-tempo tunes by the likes of Rihanna, Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z to help get her in the mood.

"Victoria runs but thinks it's changed the shape of her body - she doesn't like being straight up and down and wants toned, strong legs like Gwyneth," the source explained.

"[She does] hold-and-release butt burns [clenches], something she can do in ten minutes in the office."
