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?
