Gwyneth Paltrow has backtracked on some remarks she made about the Met Gala event.
The Iron Man 3 star attended the annual affair earlier this month. Although most of the attendees had a blast, Paltrow wasn’t overly impressed with the shindig.
“Do you want me to be honest? It sucked. It seems like the best thing in the world. You always think this is going to be so glamorous and amazing and you’ll see all these people. But you get there, it’s so hot, it’s so crowded, everyone is pushing you. This year it was so intense, it wasn’t fun,” the actress explained following the event.
She added, “I’m never going again. It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all. I think we’re all a bit too old to dress up punk.”
Despite the negative remarks Gwyneth Paltrow made shortly after the Met Gala, it would appear that she has since experienced a change of heart. In her recent Goop newsletter, the actress couldn’t say enough good things about Anna Wintour’s party.
“The Met Ball, at NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year’s most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different,” Paltrow wrote. “The theme was ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ and when the house of Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri asked me to join them, I was thrilled to see what they would create with my right fashion hand, Elizabeth Saltzman.”
The praise didn’t end there. While Gwyneth originally felt everyone was too old to dress in punk-inspired clothes, she seemed to have no problem getting “inspired” around the Goop office. In fact, she even contacted a designer about how to incorporate the look into her wardrobe.
“We asked one of my absolute favorite Web sites, the most excellently curated SSENSE, to show us how we could work it into our spring/summer wardrobes,” the actress wrote.
