Gwyneth Paltrow’s stylist said the actress “has taste” despite the uproar her Iron Man 3 premiere dress has caused.
The actress’ Antonio Berardi gown admittedly left very little to the imagination. The outfit was equipped with sheer panels that gave fans a good look at the length of her leg.
Although many thought the dress was a little too risque, stylist Elizabeth Saltzman thought Paltrow looked fabulous.
“Not only was it our first choice, it’s [also] beautiful, it’s cool, it’s daring in a no-daring way. Nonthreatening. Elegant. It looked great on her … it showed off her body. It’s spirit without being vulgar,” Saltzman explained to Us Weekly.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s stylist went on the insist the the actress has both “taste” and “confidence.” Saltzman added that she wasn’t trying to flaunt anything by wearing the revealing dress to the Iron Man 3 premiere.
She said in defense of the actress:
“And she’s not flaunting anything but the hard work that she’s put into being a happy body, happy person, healthy person. You don’t see a whole lot of false fakeness going on there like some other people. She’s always classic with a twist, classic with an edge.”
The actress discussed the fiasco during appearance on Ellen. Paltrow explained that the dress required her to go without underwear. She told 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.”
Paltrow has received quite a bit of criticism for her decision to wear such a revealing dress to the Iron Man 3 premiere. The Daily Mail writer Liz Jones said the outfit was “the most vulgar, look-at-me, attention-seeking dress I have ever reviewed in over 30 years of writing about fashion.”
