Gwyneth Paltrow attracts Fashion Police attention at Iron Man 3 premiere

When it comes to being over-exposed on the red carpet, Gwyneth Paltrow is… let’s just say she’s known to us. She has priors, basically. Her appearance at last night’s Iron Man 3 premiere in Los Angeles, however, was revealing even for Gwynie:

It’s an “illusion dress”: both in the sense that the white section at the front creates the illusion of a slimmer figure (not that Gwyneth needs to look slimmer, we hasten to add), and in the sense that when you just see it from the front, it creates the illusion of not being a complete crime of fashion.

Alas, when she turns to the side, the illusion is ruined and the whole look becomes about her bare ass. Awesome.

This is why we hate looks like this. It’s not about the dress, you see. It’s not about the style,. It’s definitely not about the woman wearing  the dress, which is what it SHOULD be about, if you ask us. No, it’s all about the bare butt. Which makes this the baboon of all dress, basically. Gwyneth’s basically running around the jungle here, showing her ass to all the other monkeys. Interesting.

We hereby christen this The Baboon Dress. We’d also christen it a crime of fashion, but that, of course, is up to you.

So, what do you think? Should we bring Gwyneth in for questioning, or let her go free?

    You don’t need to question her- just lock her right up!

    She’s naked under that! I would never run around without underwear. And I would especially never wear a dress that has sheer panels showing my keister. Why do they design dresses like that?

    It does answer the question “what do you wear under that” once and for all. 😉

      Yes, you wear one of these 80s-styled thongs which have the waitband around the actual waist – where the green satin sash is. This dress looks desperately attention-grabbing. As if she needed it!

    From the front the dress looks quite nice.

    This really is a beautiful dress.. that back panel just has to go out more. That’s just tooooo much skin.

    I actually really love this (and I hate sheer cut-outs; well really all cut-outs in general)! Yes I think that there’s a tad bit too much rear-exposure going on, but besides that the silhouette and lines that this dress creates on her body are quite beautiful and almost kinda mesmerizing. It really grabs your eye. And I’m really loving those sleeves!

    Imagine the same dress but replace the sheer panels with opaque. Okay. Now do you see it’s resemblance to a muumuu? Bad dress all around.
