Gwyneth Reflects On Her Best — And Worst — Fashion Moments

Gwyneth Paltrow has had her fair share of 1% moments, be she hanging from the air in the name of youthful beauty or injecting her face with snake venom. But we have to commend Her Royal Goopiness on this latest feature, in which she — in collaboration with the inspiring women behind Moda Operandi — goes back in time for a critique of her very-own red carpet style, in a most humble fashion.
It has to be said that Gwyneth has never looked really, truly bad on the red carpet. But if you've gotta put 'em in order somehow, this is probably the way to go. Of course, she credits her best-dressed moments to an amazing stylist (well done!), but those dresses just wouldn't have been the statements they were without Gwyneth's reputation, style profile, and radiant good looks. We'll call it a team effort, then.

In Calvin Klein at the 2000 Oscars: "It's an okay dress but not Oscars material. I chose it because I wanted to disappear that year."

In "goth" Alexander McQueen at the 2002 Oscars: "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."

This Tom Ford number from last year's Oscars is another favorite part of a winning streak: "I have to say that since I started working with stylist Elizabeth Saltzman and have put my red carpet looks in her hands, I think they are all pretty maje. I can say this because I have just about nothing to do with it."

So, what's next? Gwyneth put this Rochas gown on her list of picks from Moda Operandi's current selection. We can totally see her slipping into it for her next red-carpet event — maybe she'll finally achieve what she hoped for with that Alexander McQueen number!

Rochas Strapless Silk Faille Gown, $6,300, available at Moda Operandi.
