Gwyneth Paltrow Shows Humility

Gwyneth Paltrow, in an unlikely turn of events, showed humility when she confessed to her fashion missteps in her latest GOOP newsletter. GOOP is Ms. Paltrow’s website in which she shares her favorite things to do, eat, and wear, all of which are terribly expensive. Naw, but I can’t hate, if I had her money I would probably be out-of-touch with the common people too.

When asked,

Any fashion faux pas?

The A Perfect Murder star answered,

Well, I started being photographed in the 90′s so of course there are a few glaring ones. Two that come to mind are looks I wore to the Oscars in 2000 and 2002. The first is the Calvin Klein. It’s an okay dress but not Oscars material. I chose it because I wanted to disappear that year. Also, the goth Alexander McQueen I wore a few years later. There were a few issues; I still love the dress itself but I should have worn a bra and I should have just had simple beachy hair and less makeup. Then, it would have worked as I wanted it to – a little bit of punk at the Oscars.

I think we all remember the McQueen one in particular.

I remember her being relentlessly mocked for this dress. It got to the point of, “Oh my God, chill out everyone. Let’s not get all Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery on this.”

Anyway, super cool of the A Perfect Murder star to be real and own up to her embarrassing fashion moment.

Yes, I love A Perfect Murder. “We’ll work it out? .. You work it out on your f-cking own!!!” So good.

  • I just can’t believe that these people don’t have friends, family or stylist to tell them they look like shit before they walk out the door in front of a million camera and we see those pictures will live on forever ! They pick these dresses out weeks in advance and no one had the balls to tell her it’s awful !
