Gwyneth Paltrow - Met Ball 2012

Gwyneth Paltrow - Met Ball 2012

Gwyneth Paltrow shows off her gorgeous gams at the 2012 Met Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The 39-year-old actress rocked all Prada – shoes and a steel blue duchesse halter neck dress with inverted back pleats and macro-paillettes embroidered patch pockets.

The night before, Gwyneth came out to support pal Amanda de Cadenet at the launch of her new Lifetime interview series.

This year’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit – celebrating the opening of the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition – is co-chaired by Carey Mulligan, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and designer Miuccia Prada.

    can’t decide how i feel on this one. i wish she would do more with her hair and makeup.

  • BEAN

    She looks lovely

  • I Don’t Know

    side boob at at a ball?

  • twenty-two

    She forgot to put on a dress.

  • lovely

    G.P. went for trashy when classy suits her much better.

  • wren

    Has to stop going braless, she has the good mama droop. Droopy boobs make her look like the rest of us……

  • Jessica
  • Lindsay’s Tatas

    Still showing her titties.

  • janekay

    meh! horrible!

  • cheap

    She has nice legs but she looks like she’s wearing an apron.

  • Sad but True

    Not a fan but starting to feel embarrassed for her that she’s so desperate for attention.

  • tara

    I don’t really like her as a person but that dress is working on her… and it’s different!

  • gypsy

    It’s not much of a dress and her makeup looks horrible in the close-ups.
    Too bad because normally Prada makes beautiful gowns.

  • Gossipgirl

    Fug! Inappropriate for her age and ridiculous. Scarlett Johanson looked fantastic and very appropriate.

  • reba

    love the dress!

  • Nyc, fashionista’s crazy how the hate flows for Gwyneth! She looks amazing!! Perfect makeup for a slightly revealing dress – anything more would be overdone. Love it!!

  • Bravo

    One of the worst of the night. I’d say the worst but just saw Kristen Stewart.

  • Nyc, fashionista

    And #11 – get a life! You’re probably a mess!

  • greenfan

    Maybe Carey Mulligan could have pulled this off but Gwyneth looks sleazy in the dress. What a waste for a night of beauty and glamour.

  • mickey

    ugly chick

  • IA

    @Sad but True: IA, she is the poor man’s Heidi Klum. With 1/10 of the beauty and still trying to pass for a teenager.

  • SHO

    I remember seeing this woman wearing a diaper at an event so this doesn’t really surprise me although I will say she seems to be escalating. Before it was about showing her crotch. Now she seems to have thrown her boobs into the mix.

    I can’t imagine what’s next. Naked on the red carpet?

  • YUCK…


  • lola

    She always picks dresses that make her boobs look saggy.

  • YUCK…


  • ex nihilo

    the side boobage is WAY much for this event, I don’t care what your age is… on the flip side, awesome legs.

  • MaisyRL

    i actually don’t like Gwyn. i still think her oscar was undeserved. but i have to admit she looks good here. not exactly what you should wear at a MET Gala though. hollywood premiere or other red carpet event…it would work great. but this dress falls short of what a ‘gala dress’ embodies.

  • Lennie

    Below average.

  • goop
  • Annie

    Thier nothing special about the dress it look like a short version of the same type of dress she wears all the time. Meh

  • The Real Emma

    too much fake tan, but otherwise okay, she definitely has the best legs I’ve ever seen, especially her knees

  • anna

    @Sad but True:
    I agree that she is really desperate for attention.

  • N

    fancy as usual

  • Peapo

    @Nyc, fashionista:

    At last another person who appreciates Gwyneth for the stunner she is. I don’t know where all the hate comes from. I think she’s a glamorous star when she needs to be and a great down to earth fun Mom at other times. And an underrated actress.

  • Karina

    I think GP looks amazing. In fact, I love the Prada gowns worn by KB, CM, and GP. Very innovative style for the Met Ball.

  • bex

    wear a bra!



  • Christian

    Where are her eyebrows? She’s naturally brown hair.. Her eyes are expressionless because of that! Very insipid.


    Really frozen, she has too venom in her face.

  • Lia

    hum I’m not a big fan of her ! But … if Chris ( an amazing , talented , and sweetest guy ever ) married her, it must be for a reason why ?
    So I stopped hating her , and she looks pretty good for her age

  • Nan


    And so??

  • Marina

    She needs a mirror. I can’t believe she left her house looking like that! You need to have a gorgeous face for that kind of hairdo. After you have kids and your boobs go south you have to wear a bra, period. On the other hand, her legs look nice, and I am glad she covered her bony chest.

  • Lo

    Honestly, Kate Bosworth and Gwyneth Paltrow are the most annoying celebrities and narcissists in showbiz with an appearance of “simple woman”.
    There are many others actresses who are talentuous and not self centered as them. (EG: Kristen Bell, Nicole Kidman, Scarlett Johansson, Cate Blanchett, January Jones, Diane Kruger, Katherine Heigl, Cameron Diaz, … And many other, yes, those women are amazing and talented, not as Kate and Gwyn.)

  • ellie’

    What are you people writing..Gwen looks the best kick as* out of everyone..she gorgeous..Shes the best dress to me..

  • claire

    She’s lovely! The dress is a really difficult one and only a classy person with a perfect body like her can wear it! she is beautiful! you are only haters, you always criticize her without being able to really find a reason .. that’s sad!

  • LT

    @claire: No, people are pretty specific about their reasons for disliking her. They find her rude, snobby and she has put her foot in her mouth in many interviews. It’s her stans who seem to be in denial of why she’s one of the most disliked celebs.

    As for the dress, she doesn’t look classy at all.
    It’s an awkward fit at best.
