Gwyneth Paltrow’s dress for the Iron Man 3 premiere in Los Angeles on Wednesday night left little to the imagination.
The 40-year-old turned heads and raised eyebrows when she sauntered down the red carpet in an Antonio Berardi gown with sheer side panels that left part of her butt on display.
Speaking about the gown on Friday’s Ellen (viewable below), the star admitted she “kinda had a disaster” when she realized the dress would prevent her from wearing underwear. Paltrow, who earlier this week was named the “Most Beautiful Woman in the World” by People, told host Ellen DeGeneres:
“I was doing a show and I changed there and I [realized] I couldn’t wear underwear. I don’t think I can tell this story on TV […] Well, let’s just say everyone went scrambling for a razor […] So I went from being the most beautiful to the most humiliated.”
When Ellen asked, “It was just the side of your leg! What is going on?” the actress quipped back, “I work a 70s vibe. You know what I mean?”
With the Gwyneth Paltrow dress already set to go down in the pantheon of (in)famous red carpet gowns (see also: Liz Hurley, Lizzy Gardiner, and Lady Gaga), the Internet has been critiquing the actress’ look; and none too kindly, if we’re honest.
“Despite being named People‘s Most Beautiful Woman earlier this week, Gwyneth Paltrow has committed what is quite possibly her worst fashion faux-pas to date.”
Meanwhile, Liz Jones at The Daily Mail harrumphed:
“This has got to be the most vulgar, look-at-me, attention-seeking dress I have ever reviewed in over 30 years of writing about fashion […] Its space-age bodice and peculiar shade of bottle-green would normally be sufficient to offend, but the netted panel that stretches all the way up both sides rudely exposes the side of her bottom, proving — no doubt intentionally — that Paltrow is not only fearless, she is knickerless!”
What do you make of the Gwyneth Paltrow dress, readers?
