She needs no introduction or last name. When I saw photos of Gwyneth Paltrow in this dazzling green Elie Saab gown earlier this month, I changed my opinion of plunging necklines.
She wore this stunner to the Bambi Awards in Wiesbaden, Germany. I think she's got the perfect figure for it. Had she spilled out of the dress, it would have looked vulgar to me. Her Tracey Anderson workout routine, plus what's probably a natural, genetic predisposition with a thin frame, gave her the perfect body to wear the daring gown.
I think everything about her look was stunning. Her simple, characteristic straight blonde hair was a great contrast to the elaborate green sequins. After I got over the mechanics (how much fashion tape does it take to make the "V" stay put, as it did in all the photos?), my eyes fixed on her diamond necklace. If I were given the choice - gown or necklace - I'd choose the necklace, and then plot to have an event, even if I had to host a black-tie party at my house (which I did years ago, it was fun!).
Take a look at her makeup. Just as "simple" as her hair style, it complements the entire look. She appears to have worn natural eye shadow, flattering eyeliner and mascara, a peachy-pink natural blush, and the same peachy-pink tone in her lipstick/lip gloss. She wore no earrings to detract from that amazing necklace.
What do you think? Did you see these photos?
