IN or OUT: Gwyneth Paltrow in Antonio Berardi

Posted on April 25, 2013

Whenever two of our cats are fighting with each other* and we’re forced to separate them, we use a line from the camp classic Drop Dead Gorgeous. No, not “JESUS LOVES WINNERS!” although that would be pretty funny. What we say instead is “I know, dear. We all hate her.” It tends to work really well on hissing cats.

So Bitter Kittens, we say to you after yesterday’s news: We know, dears. We all hate her. Now let’s vote.


‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ Gwyneth Paltrow attends the premiere of ‘Iron Man 3’ in Los Angeles in an Antonio Berardi top and maxi skirt paired with Christian Louboutin sandals.

At first glance, we loved it; all the competing lines and shapes, the stark black and white, that industrial green.; a perfectly sci-fi, machinery-esque look for the premiere of Iron Man 3. “Excellent genre-dressing,” we intoned.

But Gwynnie being Gwynnie, she just had to go and show the WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL ASS to everyone – and by that we mean her actual buttocks, because we realized after typing “WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL ASS” you would all assume we were talking about Gwyneth herself.

To be honest, we groaned when we saw how much real estate she was putting on display but it’s the Iron Man 3 premiere and that does tend to call for thinking outside the box, dress-wise. We’re so enamored with the sci-fi/superhero qualities of the dress that we find ourselves harrumphing less and less over the tacky sheerness every time we look. Love her or hate her, she’s a movie star and she’s wearing a dress that works best on movie stars and models, at a venue for which it’s perfectly suited. We’re gonna have to suck it up and call this one an IN. Could’ve been a WERQ if she’d done something with that godawful hair of hers.

And you, kittens? Have you the ovaries or testicles to overcome your distaste for THE WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN and her ass cheeks?

Vote Now!






Lena Dunham got a VERY STERN TALKING-TO by the Bitter Kittens, who rose up practically as one giant Bitter Kitten to vote her ballerina dress OUT.


* Is that a perfect opener for this post or what?

    I am a not a Gwyneth hater. I actually subscribe to goop. But that dress is ASS in more ways than one. She needs to put it away, for god’s sake.

    PS love the cat anecdote

  • Meg

    If I can see actual ass cheek, then there is no way in hell that I’m giving this an in. OUT.

  • Oh, hell NO. This is an OUT, not because I hate her guts (I’m kind of neutral on that) but because it’s an ugly, overworked, “throw everything in” dress.

  • I see London, I see France, I see she’s no underpants!

    If the side panels had been lined, this would have been SUCH an in. But…no. I didn’t need to see that much of the World’s Most Beautiful Ass. OUT.

    • Sobaika

      Exactly. I was loving this until I noticed the sheer panels. And then there was the shot of her walking from the side and it all went to hell. Out.

      • mshesterp

        I think many of us are going to be in agreement. “It was good until…oh, COME ON.”

      • barbarienne

        Yes, that walking side view is the needle scratch.

        From the front, or even the straight-on back, it’s like, “Okay, this is really cool, and those sheer bits are pushing the envelope but they work.” And then you see the 5th picture and it’s all, “My eyes! My eyes!” and recoiling in horror.

        • makeityourself

          The dress is ugly. I knew that from the thumbnail. Then it went beyond any ugly dress we’ve EVER seen on a celebrity into some unknown territory not even visited by Heidi Klum. I’m not trying to be funny . . . this is seriously desperate and gross. Is Elizabeth Salzman still her stylist? If so, she has steered her client into some unfathomable asshattery that I cannot defend in any way.

    • Yes, this. Would have been an odd but solid IN, especially because I love me some sci fi and superheroes. But we need to stand together against tackiness and Sheer Panels in Wrong Places. Out.

    • Tigrrl

      It’s just not flattering from the side, no? If it was a more narrow panel and showed her cheek, maybe. But the hip bone showing just makes it look like she forgot something.

    • H2olovngrl

      She loves showing off her lack of undergarments. “Look at me! See the clean line of skin going all the way up from my impeccable toenails to my glittering blue eyes? That’s right, I am all woman under here, boys! Suck it ladies!”

      • Carla_Charlton

        Am I too square in saying that I don’t like when people (men or women) are really in-your-face about the fact that they’re not wearing underwear? I just don’t that should be the first thing that pops into the viewers head when they look at someone; really takes away from the clothes. By the way, the shoes, when coupled with the shear, look trashy.

        • H2olovngrl

          Maybe she is just really insecure….hahahahaha!!!!

        • She’s wearing shoes? I was too busy thinking about the side fart vents to notice…

        • As a child I watched a talk show where Sean Connery said he never wore underwear and I’ve thought him disgusting ever since.

    • drdarke

      Beat me to it, @Stella Zawistowski!

      Well played, M’Lady…. ::bows formally::

    • jetpackdino

      The only POSSIBLE way this dress could cover enough Gwyneth ass to be acceptable? Would be if it covered the one on her shoulders, too.


  • ThatPeterG

    OUT, too tacky, too Gwynnie….

  • Folk Devil

    Ew. Sartorial overshare.

  • Take away the sheer side panels and it’s an IN, but in the current state it is completely OUT.

  • RebeccaKW

    I really dislike the sleeves. I might like the dress if the panels weren’t so sheer, they might as well not be there. I mean, I don’t need to see the crick of her thighs where they meet her hips, I don’t need to see all of her butt minus crack. If she’d worn a bikini, it would show less skin than this thing.

    Also, may I just say how squicky I think it is to wear a BORROWED dress with no undies? I mean, ew.

    I have to go with Out here. It might work with some adjustments, but as is, I feel like she’s an evil space villain in a porn.

    • I’m so glad you said this. My first thought was that they got this costume from some insane sci fi sexo.

    • Lori

      Oh god, I hadn’t thought about the fact that the dress is borrowed. Going commando in borrowed clothing is just nasty.

      She needed to heed the wisdom of Joey Tribbiani— “I’m not going commando in another man’s fatigues”

    • aeb1986

      haha, i was thinking that too! is she not wearing underwear and then returning this tomorrow…ick.

    • I’m choosing to believe that she is wearing underwear — a thong. We can’t see the waistband, after all. Yes, that’s what I will believe.

      • Sarah

        Yes, but that begs the question – how is wearing a thong any different than rubbing most of your junk on a borrowed dress any less indecent than going commando? But, I believe the point is moot, because we are to understand her nethers are solid gold and free from any contaminants, are we not?

        • hac51

          Jimmy Kimmel’s Fake Coachella Bands: “Solid Gold Nethers.”

        • H2olovngrl

          I am sure she has a much cleaner butt than us mere mortals.

      • Nope. Have you seen her on Ellen talking about this? No undies.

    • Spicytomato1

      It can’t possibly be borrowed, can it? Not when it’s been tailored so specifically to her shape? Or if she had originally wanted to borrow it, I’m imagining the designer striking a deal along the lines of “you bare ass it, you buy it.”

      • RebeccaKW

        True. But still, I wouldn’t want to wear my own dress bare assed. I don’t know about other ladies, but my fine china gets…um, warm, I guess is a good term, when I sit for too long, and I don’t need any evidence of that showing up on the skirt I’ve worn when I leave the theater 3 hours later or whatever.

  • NO. I don’t want to see your ass, Goopy. I don’t care how beautiful it is.



    sorry, I had to let that out.

    • Ditto, and I actually think the sheer panels look worse on the front. Not that I don’t mind the rear view.

    • mshesterp

      I really loved it…until I got to the side shot. Her gams/ass are enviable, but only for Chris Martin’s eyes.
      STOP THAT, GWYN. STOP THAT, NOW. Tacky town.

      • I think we’re going to have to build a whole new section of Tackytown for dresses like this.

        • I haven’t ‘kued in a while so here goes:

          Sheer fart-a-licious
          Go work that milkshake girlfriend
          Quilted breastplate queen

          Twirl your metal sleeves
          And enjoy a good cream rinse
          But no cup o’ soup

          • I love it when you ‘ku.

          • I’m just glad I could get in a cup o soup reference after she’s said “I’d rather die than have my kids eat a Cup of Soup.”

          • H2olovngrl

            Regarding cup o’ soup, (awesome haiku btw) obviously said by someone who has never had to rush to get her kids to piano lessons, soccer practice, swim lessons, band and preschool. Let’s also keep in mind she has never ever had to worry about money and as I am sure has been noted here in in the past, has zero concept of what it is actually like outside her moneyed walls.

          • Thank you. The ‘kus and various poetries have helped with an assortment of things for a few months. Not in importance– my writer’s block, my husband’s illness, the loss of my beloved dog, and both my parents’ ailing… my teaching responsibilities… everything hit at once, and I used these little poems as a way to sort through words, feelings, and imagery, and just to be creative and expressive. Sometimes I’ve tried to be funny, other times to tap into something else, but always with a feeling of something inside.

          • Thanks for sharing that. It’s a unique and lovely way you chose to deal with those trials.

          • This made me do a completely humiliating snort-chuckle at my desk at work. Well done!

          • I hope the milk didn’t come out your nose.

          • Thankfully, no! (And it would have been Diet Pepsi…ouch.) I did get a side-eye from my coworker at the strange noise I made though 🙂

          • /having nose snorted diet coke and pepsi AND coffee with skim and splenda… give me the soda anytime. The coffee always seems to have solids. ewwwww…

          • librarygrrl64

            This is everything.

        • drdarke

          Speaking of Fashion Disasters on the IRON MAN 3 Red Carpet – where’s what Robert Downey, Jr. was wearing…?

        • DebbieLovesShoes

          Stop it. I can’t breathe.

          And now I have the tune to “Take Me Down to Funky Town” running through my head, only with the word “Tackytown” in its place. haha.

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        Kiltdntiltd and mshesterp are knocking it out of the park, here. Snort-laughing. (Needed that after a bad day).

    • Girl_With_a_Pearl

      The single most egregious over use of Gwyneth Paltrow.

      • I’m not in the Gywnnie hate camp, but hell yeah. Too much of too much.

        • Girl_With_a_Pearl

          Oh, I don’t hate her either, but the People thing is so over the top and she’s so overexposed – literally so in the above photos. Loved your comment BTW.

          • Aurumgirl

            I also do not hate Gwynnie, and who even reads People at this point? Still: is that your ASS I have to look at now? That can never be right.

      • I thought you meant the uncles’ use and I was going to agree with you.

        Uncles: PLEASE NO MORE GWYNNIE FOR TWO WEEKS (at least). I insist on a strict diet of Solange for the rest of the day.

    • drdarke

      I see England
      I see France
      I see Gwynnie with no underpants!

      WTF? I am never mocking Heidi Klum’s fashion choices after this, because it’s clear however she wants to remind us She Still Has It that Heidi’s nowhere near as desperate as Miss Paltrow is.

      I’m past snark to a sense of great sadness that Gwynneth Paltrow’s recent choices have revealed a desperate need for outside validation. It makes me wonder what kind of inner emptiness she must have that she would send out such blatant cries for attention….

      OUT…. In case it wasn’t clear from my comments.

      • H2olovngrl

        That would imply that she has some sort of inner self awareness, which I highly doubt!

        • drdarke

          Which is even sadder actually, @h2olovngrl:disqus .

      • I seriously wondered why the hell, if she was lent the dress, the designer would want it back knowing there was nothing serving as a barrier. For causing me to wonder that: OUT!

      • demidaemon

        I don’t believe the bot mocking Heidi’s fashion choices. You know you just can’t help yourself.

        • drdarke

          Ya caught me out, @demidaemon:disqus !

    • carolynmo

      Kiltdntiltd for the win!

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      Fuck her!

  • Ms. Schmidt

    The outfit is an OUT. The bodice is particularly hideous.

  • OUT. Too, too, too much ass and thigh.

  • ali meowmeow

    I don’t understand why there’s a seam down the middle of the sheer. That shouldn’t need to be there.

    I was so ready to give this a pass because it is pretty sci-fi and I like that, but that seam ruins it for me. Out.

  • Carrieanno

    “Hate” is such an ugly word. But I hate this outfit (double hated when I assumed it was Stella). Out.

  • clevRcat

    Oh come on! Yes, she is beautiful and fit but that is an OUT.

  • kipper

    HEY! I’m wearing underwear.. how cool am I ? and I’m not on the I hate Gwyneth bandwagon at all – (how COULD you hate Blythes daughter ?) but this dress? full out sand in the bath tub hate….did she sit down , at all ??

    • Jangle57

      I’ve always loved Blythe Danner, ever since 1776. How she could have raised such an obnoxious child … but Gwynnie says she was a Daddy’s girl so maybe that explains it. But those sheer side panels – eeeek! OUT

      • H2olovngrl

        To reference Mad Men, there is a difference in starting out with nothing than inheriting everything. And I am aware she is a decent actress in her own right, but she also had the right parents. I think this comes up in season two, regarding Jai Alai. Anyone remember the episode?

  • Too much skin, plus, even though the dress has excellent sci-fi qualities, the fabric looks like it came from an episode of the original Star Trek series that had its budget painfully cut. Or maybe it’s some sort of packing material? OUT

  • OUT – I was right there with her, on her side, until she showed her side, then I had to bail.

    Uncles, please tell me you have seen the clip of a trailer for Drop Dead Gorgeous that has been dubbed over a bunch of Disney clips? It is spot on brilliant!! I love that movie so much, and knowing you do too, has made my damned day.

  • Deac82

    I love the front and the back, but hate the sides. Still, because its an impact look and she’s dressing for the venue, I give it an “in”

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Gwennie continues to make an ass out of herself…..OUT

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Trashy with a capital T. OUT.

  • Lose the peplum and the ridiculous sleeves and it’s gorgeous.

  • I surprise myself by giving this an IN. I freaking love a kimono sleeve.

  • GorgeousThings


    Sweet Jesus on a stick, I cannot abide that woman.

  • Little_Olive

    Sideass + droopy boobs + the green thing was a good idea but notsomuch in practice+how cool she feels in it = OUT.

    • Introspective

      “+how cool she feels in it”

      All of what little olive said but especially this. cause sideass is NEVER cool

  • Barb Ray

    OK then. . . she’s not only smug and pompous, but delusional too apparently. Wow.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Vulgar. I really hate this.

  • I don’t like the dress at all, there’s too much going on (apart from being able to see her ass).

  • Diego!

    I don’t hate her, and it’s an IN for me. She looks stunning!

  • msdamselfly

    The dresses on the runway are lovely

  • decormaven

    Ok. You got The Most Beautiful Woman In The World award. Don’t press your luck, hon. Wear a tasteful outfit, and reign from on high. It’s hard to reflect upon the wonderfulness when the humanity is shoved in our faces.

  • surfergirl70

    The top alone with a skirt that was lined would have been fab. As is, she looks vulgar and desperate.

    • H2olovngrl

      I thought so too, until I went back for a second look, and now, I dunno, that seems like a lot of side boob, as well.

    • makeityourself

      Vulgar. That’s the word I was looking for.

  • geans

    It’s a rare sideways fug.

    • Yes – excellent. I was trying to think of a type of fug.

    • gsk241

      Yes! Profile fug!

  • Hillary Meredith

    Out Out Out! I love the sheer panel part of the top, but not only is it ass cheek, it’s also suprapubic flashing. Not ok!!

  • Out. The ass doesn’t bother me as much as the hip indentions seen in the sheer front panels. Like, ew.

  • Cynica

    That is just vulgar. OUT.

    • makeityourself

      Let’s just change her title to “The World’s Most Vulgar Woman.”

      Does young Apple have a little-girl version?

  • AnaRoW

    OUT! And I’m not even saying that because it’s her. The dress is butt-ugly on the models too (no pun intended).

  • zenobar

    Oh for the fuck of shit. OUT.

  • mmc2315

    Oh. I was ready to sign on (interesting dress!) until I saw the side view with the sheer panels. Deal breaker. OUT.

  • N a

    Hell NO! Actually, with her ass showing like that, this dress is literally and figuratively a Freudian slip! 😉

  • I just can’t with her sinewy haunches.

  • OMG – OUT. Sorry to shout there. Waaay too much sheer with a seam down the middle – ugh.

  • C. C. Winslow

    Holy crap, scroll-down-super-fug. Out.

  • 3boysful

    OUT simply for (Vugar) Overuse of Illusion. Otherwise, I really like the dress, especially the sleeves (think I am in the minority here). But I also think it would look better on a brunette.

  • carnush

    I can’t get past the nakedness. I don’t want to see that much of her. OUT.

  • Faux-modesty, no knickers. OUT.

  • Liked it until I scrolled down to the sideways shot, which elicited an “OH PLEASE NO” out loud comment from me – and I’m at work!

    Oh so very OUT.

  • Oh so very OUT.

  • Jessi03

    I love it from the front. Then she turned….and it can be nothing but OUT.

  • I was in love with this until she turned sideways. It’s WAY too much side-ass, and it would have been so much less jarring if there were an inch or two showing, as opposed to six inches of side-ass. So, because of the gratuitous side-ass (how many times can I write that in one post), I’m giving her an OUT.

    • Spicytomato1

      Yes, exactly. OUT by a couple of inches.

  • AlisonS

    If she had worn the skirt that was intended for the top I’d have no reservations what so ever giving her an IN but god, my god she’s heading into Haley Berry territory with the full cheek hanging out of her skirt there.

    I don’t think I have a problem with the pieces together, just on her. I think I’d like it if ScarJo was wearing it. I haven’t been looking at her ass for almost 3 decades.

  • j_anson

    OH lordy. NO. OUT. It’s not even the amount of real estate she’s putting on display, which is entirely up to her; it’s that the sheer panel material looks so CHEAP, like it’s made out of used sheer nylon material, with a giant messy seam down the middle.

    It’s too bad, because from the front it was totally awesome sci-fi princess fun.

  • You know, I’m probably going to get jumped for this, but I think the Gwennie hate is just…over for me. People take it to a level of rage that I don’t understand. She’s no more out of touch than practically anyone who has been relatively famous for several years. In fact, I almost like that she doesn’t hide it behind a lot of false “I’m just like you, guys!!1!” Yes, her interviews are eyeroll-inducing, but so are approximately 95% of all celebrity interviews. Yes, she goes on about how special she is and what a good homemaker she is, but there’s no indication that it’s lies. She seems to be telling the truth.

    I can’t help but see a lot of the hate creeping into a lot of internalized misogyny from the women and some out and out misogyny from others. I’m not comfortable with it. I’m not saying that I love her, because I don’t. But the anger and nastiness I see directed towards her seems extremely disproportionate to her “crimes.”

    That said, I wish the side panels would have been lined and I would have LOVED this. Still an IN b/c of how perfect it is for the venue.

    • zenobar

      I won’t jump you; I agree with you 100% regarding the girl-on-girl-hatred (even if Ms. Paltrow is frequently insufferable… but we all have our “special qualities” do we not?) However I have to respectfully disagree with your “IN” 🙂

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      I don’t think it has anything to do with internalized misogyny than, say, hating Bieber has to do with hating Canada. I can identify as a feminist and still disdain certain women.

    • I don’t think it’s misogyny, at least where I’m coming from. There are just some people – celebrities and mortals alike – who have their heads so far up their asses that they don’t see or don’t care how they come across to the general public, yet at the same time tell/beg the public to “love me because I’m so awesome.” I fee that way about Gwynnie here. I also feel that way about Tom Cruise and Justin Bieber. They all elicit the same “UGH, can’t they just go away” reaction from me.

    • Spicytomato1

      You’re not alone. I have been marveling at the hate for a while and occasionally pointing out that she seems no more insufferable than most celebs. But mine seemed to be the lone voice in the darkness. Until now. 🙂

    • TheAmericaness

      I love how this outfit has been put up for a vote… as if the combo of GPaw & sheer side panels would garnish anything but a BK hate fest… hmmmm….

      • formerlyAnon

        The uncles throw us a metaphorical bone to gnaw every now and then. I think the vet told them it was good for us to have an outlet.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      I’m no Gwynnie hater either. As I’ve pointed out before, if I were her(she?), I’d be way more self-satisfied and obnoxious than she is…..but I still didn’t need to see this much of her 🙂

    • Sunraya

      So because I find her arrogant and a know it all who hasn’t earned her right to preach to parents and women, I am a misogynist? Really, your logic is faulty here. I think she is obnoxious. I also dislike Tom Cruise because he, too, is convinced of his superiority. The people are actors, not curing cancer. I don’t need some entitled rich woman preaching at me on how to feed my kids, and how bad I am because I feed them cup of soup once in a while. I guess I am just a misanthrope.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      “Yes, she goes on about how special she is and what a good homemaker she is, but there’s no indication that it’s lies. She seems to be telling the truth.”

      I’m sorry, how exacly has she proven that she is ‘special’?

      “She’s no more out of touch than practically anyone who has been relatively famous for several years. In fact, I almost like that she doesn’t hide it behind a lot of false “I’m just like you, guys!!”

      No, you are right, she doesn’t hide it behind a lot of “I’m just like you”, she goes the other route. The “I’m superior to you and let me show you the truthful, Gwyneth Paltrow-endorsed way, you poor uncivilized plebians” route. And yes, all celebrities are out of touch but no celebrities (except maybe J-Lo) are so seemingly unaware of their privilege like Gwennie. That *is* why people can’t stand her.If you want internalized misogyny, read a Paltrow interview.

  • LeSourire

    I was about to say in, and then I saw it from the side. Dear God, OUT!!!!

  • IN! i’m not a fan of her’s by a long stretch but i think the dress is interesting and cool plus she certainly has the body for it. although, yes i could have done with a little less butt cheek.

  • I was THISCLOSE to calling this a big IN until I saw her ass. Too bad.

  • crash1212

    Total IN. In every way. Perfect for her body. Perfect for the venue/event. I’m usually not a sheer-loving person, but this works on every level. The hair is the hair – we must accept.

  • Nikko Viquiera

    ughhhh. I’m giving her a very, very angry IN. grr.

  • I begrudgingly loved this until she turned to the side. At which point I involuntarily groaned at my cubicle causing a prairie dog-like response from the co-workers. Whoopsies. The jig is up. So, yeah, that’s an out. For the crimes of ass-flashing and shoes with clear plastic. No, no, a thousand times, no!

  • NO. no no no no NO. OUT. too much sheer, too much ass.

  • Jecca2244

    I think it would have been sexier to show less cheek. It is too much. plus the sheer looks cheap. in other shots ive seen it puckers to the point of making her look like she has cellulite.

  • gabbilevy

    So torn on this one. I love the dress except its sheernees. And you’re so right– it’s perfect for the venue. But the gratuitous display of assery is so SO tacky… mild in.

  • The sheer sleeves appear to be melting down her arms and I don’t want to see that much of anyone’s thighs or ass, I don’t care how beautiful they are. OUT

  • Sunraya

    Nope. It’s ugly as hell . and I do not want to see her asscheeks, beautiful or not. And honestly, she has a head that is narrow on top and wide at the jawline. Like Mr. Potato Head.

  • Guess who isn’t wearing underwear? OUT.

  • CCAdams

    Please Gwyneth, fire that stylist and never wear this dress or any similar again. Remember, undies can be your friend—OUT!

    However, keep the hair and makeup crew. They served you well.

  • BrooklynBomber

    I was about to say I almost really like this dress in this long version, that something about the colors is off, but otherwise. . . and then I scrolled down. And now I fully believe that anyone who had any involvement with this–from designing to producing to selecting to wearing to disseminating photographs of–has committed (or is complicit in the commitment of) crimes against humanity, and should be arrested and sent to the Hague to be tried.

  • ChaCha_70

    OUT! Like TLo, I thought this was a total IN based on the first photo. Then, I saw the pic from the side. Ugh, horrible! No! Why???

  • Cathy S

    I was going to say, “That’s interesting.” And then she turned sideways, and no fucking way. Awful.

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    Love it from the front. Love from the back. HATE from the side. I agree with the whole “if the side panels had been lined” comment.

  • Anathema_Device

    Out. I really don’t like that dress at all. It is ugly even before you get to the ass panels. And then it gets REALLY ugly.

  • O.U.T

  • stacey avelar

    this dress is so ugly I thought at first it must be a Stella McCartney. And someone kill the sheer thing NOW!

    • Right?! I was sure I was going to see Stella’s name when I scrolled down! LOL

  • My kingdom for a slip! OUT!!!!!!!! Side panel fug!

  • StellaZafella

    Gertrude Stein dress: There’s no “there” there. out.

  • barbarienne

    One of those times where you say, “Is it still good, despite that one crazy thing?” or “Does that one crazy thing look even worse, because it’s part of something that is otherwise really awesome?”

    So sad. If the side panels were lined, or perhaps only 2″ wide, that would have been a killer dress.

    I will go with OUT, because once you see those side panels, it’s like Toto pulling back the curtain on the Wizard. What was once impressive becomes utter humbug.

  • Lori

    Out, obviously mostly because of the ASS, but not just because of that. I actually don’t think the two piefces she chose work all that well together. The not matching, but also not contrasting enough whites are fighting with each other. Both the top and the skirt were more interestig in the runway looks. Not good exactly, but interesting. I also hate her shoes. That clear plastic piece looks cheap as hell and like it would slice into your foot every time you took a step.

  • l_c_ann


    I’m torn between saying the dress is not perfect enough for her and saying that her thighs and buttocks are not perfect enough for the dress. Or both.

  • I’ll forgive the sheer side panels because she is working the hell out of the rest of the dress.
    In terms of hating her…she used to really bug me but then she became so ridiculous that I started liking her because of it. So now she just makes me laugh with her antics.

  • It was great ’til I saw her ass. OUT. I’m sorry, but there’s such a thing as taste.


  • Eva_baby

    OUT. that is all.

  • pattyw

    Am I the only one super psyched that puckers in the skirt’s side seams are giving her faux cellulite? Otherwise, I hate to admit, damn, girl can carry off a sheer dress.

  • OrigamiRose

    IN. I hate it but she does wear it well.

  • TAGinMO

    If the lower section were lined, I’d actually give it an in.

    OUT. Also, in the words of Michael Kors: “Slutty, slutty, slutty!”

  • I’m gonna give this an IN. It’s definitely too much, but, hell – she’s gonna be with Bob Downey all night. They’re basically my favorite only-slightly-talented narcissistic duo at the moment. Also, girl looks good.

    Pepper Potts has such gorgeous strawberry hair – can’t she learn a thing or two?

  • OUT! OUT! OUT!

    I adore this on the model with the shorter skirt that doesn’t display actual ass. But Gywnnie went and ruined it with that tacky as hell skirt. We all know you have great legs, Gwynnie, we didn’t actually need to have personal knowledge of how tight your ass is.

  • rloliveira

    This is awful. You would never let your daughter out of the house with this on. It is the worst taste in the world.

  • Kate4queen

    Out, like you it was an in until I realized that wasn’t a wrinkle in the lining of the dress but her ass hanging out!!

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Out. I would have loved this ensemble if the sheer panel was greatly reduced or wasn’t sheer at all. I sincerely hope she didn’t actually sit in this thing…could be real unhygienic.

  • Janet B

    The green and black are great, the white part is okay, but the sheer sides (!?!), ick.

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    Oh for goodness’ sake – put some underwear on!


  • lalahartma

    Oh, HELL, No!

  • DinaSews

    I agree with every OUT here. OUT.

  • MoHub

    There are so many things wrong with this that I’ve run out of fingers and toes to count on.

  • sleepycat

    God no, OUT

  • Lilithcat


    My first reaction was that I loved the top but would have preferred it matched with a solid colored skirt. Then I saw the side view and ran screaming from the room. Honestly, that seam looks as though she’s wearing hose with seams and they got all twisted on her.

    Still adore the top, though.

  • Tatiana Luján

    I hate the sleeves and no matter what movie premiere she was attending, showing your butt and your pelvis with a gown is vulgar. This skirt is Heidi Klumm’s dream.

  • Carol

    +5 points: the dress has beautiful lines, and I love the colors. -Inf: WTF shear panels the show off the “World’s Most Beautiful Ass”! OUT.

  • Ziuskin

    As a lady who loves ladies, even I am saying OUT. Out out out, there is
    just unflattering, now matter how great she may look overall. Also,
    tasteless and terrible. Gwyneth, no. No.

  • GoryDetails

    So very OUT, and all due to those awful sheer side panels; before I’d scrolled down that far I was liking the look a lot. Ah, well…

  • OUT! Dear god woman! You have no shame.

  • Me too… but now everytime I hear the line “Mom still cries everytime she sees a fat lady in a tube top,” I’ll think of Gwynnie.

  • tereliz

    It’s tacky and I hate it.

    Shame. It had so much potential from the front.

  • Outer space so far out!

  • aj_hawks


  • Judy_S

    I too liked it OK until I saw the sheer side. It’s not just that it’s revealing but that there’s too much already going on with that dress, colors, cutouts, sleeves, faux peplum. The nekkidness should be a focus, not a distraction among other distractions. OUT.

  • meant2bee

    Horrible. Looks like an enormous panty liner is stuck to her dress.

  • N as for Berardi…. There are enough ideas in that one dress for an entire SI-FI collection !

    • formerlyAnon

      Exactly right.

  • MilaXX

    OUT! Hell to the No! That is FUG and LEE! If she had worn the look the first model is wearing I would have given it an IN, but this version I hated even before I saw the ass hanging out. I swear it’s Gwynnie saying, “Yal might have voted me most hated over Chris Brown, but I just scored People mag so eat it.”

    • filmcricket

      I was thinking the first model version was quite nice too, if a bit office-y for a movie premiere (if you call a sheer couture blouse “office-y”).

      I could deal with the current skirt if it just had tiny side panels like Taylor Swift’s Golden Globes gown, but this is just horrific. Congrats to Gwynnie and Tracey Anderson on the state of her derriere, but I don’t need to see it. OUT.

  • I really liked it a lot until I saw the sheer ass panel.

    The world must rise up as one against sheer ass panels.


  • notterriblybitter

    My immediate reaction to this dress was “rubber gasket and quilted paper towels.”

  • ginnyt20

    Yep…Out…I don’t ever NEED to know someone’s got no panties on.

  • julnyes

    So far OUT that it would take Iron Man jetting into outer space to bring her sheer butt back.

  • Lizzyisi

    OUT! My thought upon scrolling to the runway shots was “I like the short skirt better” Then I scrolled past to the ass shots and thought “Dear god, no.”

  • snarkalicious

    HELL NO. Entirely too stiff and bizarre. Also: ass cheek.

    But I was pleasantly surprised to note that the World’s Most Beautiful Woman has a bumpy forehead just like me.

    • Fordzo

      Bumpy as in cro magnon or bumpy as in blemishes? Because if you are pointing out her blemishes, you should know that those are just toxins being released as a result of the perfect lifestyle she leads. Goop doesn’t get blemishes.

      • snarkalicious

        Well played, Fordzo. My slightly-blemished forehead has been put in its proletarian place.

        • Fordzo

          Peasant pimples. You can’t help it. You probably don’t have an wood burning outdoor pizza oven, either. Gwynnie has two.

          You need to do the Master Cleanse until you hallucinate, and then take a sauna to sweat out the toxins.

          Or you can come sit next to me and drink toxins and snark about Goop. Your choice.

  • Kimberly Southern-Weber

    Hell. No. Blargh.

  • another_laura

    OUT outoutoutoutoutout OUT!!! Sheer side panels destroying an otherwise (I think) interesting and attractive dress.

  • Blair Sylvester

    It manages that rare feat of being both tacky and matronly. Those sleeves were done better by the dowager countess of grantham. I always think black mesh sleeves read elderly widow. But thankfully to sex it up you can see the sides of her hips and legs and her butt. This is an out but not because I hate her (I dont really she amuses me/ at least she doesn’t pretend to be your every day girl) but I hate this dress and can’t and or don’t want to overcome that hate

    • formerlyAnon

      “tacky and matronly” EXACTLY its sin, IMO. It was a cool dress – but then she turned it into a very unsexy boudoir gown with the excess of sheer. Though I was thinking more a ’50s sci-fi Grande Dame of the High Council of Something-or-Other-Off-Planet than dowager duchess.

      • Blair Sylvester

        That makes sense I just couldn’t resist the contrast between the dowager countess and sheer side vents. I guess some of the younger women on Downton Abbey wear the sheer sleeves shaped a bit like that

  • Not only does it scream tacky, it’s pucker is giving The Worlds Most Beautiful Thighs wrinkles. OUT.

  • nannypoo

    Oh for god’s sake. I didn’t even like the front view, but when you see it from the side it’s just plain eye-searingly bad. This bitch is out of control.

  • random_poster

    Out. Lined side panels would have made the difference. We cringe at side boob, so side ass is a whole new realm that we don’t really need in our lives.

  • Anna_Cecilia

    In. Not because I agree with the choice or like the dress all that much, but because Gwyneth is simply doing what Gwyneth does best: serving up a declaration of her superiority over everyone. She’s tall, thin AND toned enough to make this work, and she’s added even more height with those heels. She is showing everyone her ass because she doesn’t eat carbs and according to People, she’s the most beautiful.
    I personally think she’s the most fun when she’s at her looking down on the rest of us disgusting carb-eaters best! We wouldn’t have any contempt to direct towards her if she WASN’T insufferable.

  • estella_nyc

    Ugh, no no no! OUT!

  • MissAnnieRN

    In. I think this is really interesting. I do not care for the sheer side panels. But it doesn’t ruin it for me.

  • NO. The top looks so great on the runway with that solid skirt, and the skirt looks pretty great with that darker top, but the two together are one big clashy ass-flashing mess. As the Fug Girls would say, leave the demi-nudity to Bai Ling, Gwyneth. You’re supposed to be better than that.

  • jw_ny

    I like it until I saw the side sheer panels on the skirt. OUT!

    I’m actually kind of glad the sheer panels are there, ’cause It would have pained me to give her an in.

  • Melanie

    I think this is really vulgar. And I don’t ever want to hear her say again that she hasn’t had work done. In that third photo of her, you can see that her transformation into Kelly Ripa is nearly complete.

  • So funny, gentlemen, that you even put this up for a vote. Just trying to get all your bitter kittens hissing at GOOP?

  • MyrtleUrkel

    If only the sheer side panels had a few more layers or was only slightly sheer….but alas…OUT!

  • Fordzo

    Wait. Didn’t she just brag last week that all her friends, as well as strangers on the street, tell her she has the a$$ of a 22 year old stripper?

    …Not from what I can see.

  • What I want is for her to step on the hem and rip the skirt right off so that all she is left with is a top and plastic stripper shoes.

    Wow! I have to go look at some McQueen to get this bad taste out of my head.

  • Tracy_Flick

    OUT. The heavy white fabric is causing the black illusion to wrinkle, which makes it look ill-fitting. I love the lines, but the fabrics kill it. And I GASPED when I saw all the nakedness.

  • Dammit I loved it until she turned sideways! Bah. Meeeh out. It’s so awesome from the front and back it makes me sad to say out.

  • lilibetp

    Out. With a long version of the white skirt, it would have been GORGEOUS. But that was tacky, inappropriate, and declasse. And there were children at the opening, so it’s NOT perfectly suited to the venue.

  • Oh my good golly, no. outoutoutOUT. We know she loves short skirts; why couldn’t she have just worn the ensemble as it was on the runway? I would have actually given her an in for that version.

  • Emily Giovanni

    You can see the spots where her thighs meet her stomach. Awful. Out.

  • kmk05

    OH HELL NO. From the front, it’s stunning. And so is her face. And everything else. But the sheer panels destroy the entire thing. It’s not just the tackiness. It’s not just the sheer. Its… just… no.OUT.

  • colleenjanel

    This sideways fug is a HO NO!


    I do like the look from the front. If those skirt panels were opaque black, I’d have been impressed. As it is, I am nauseated.

    • makeityourself

      I DONT like the look from the front, and I’m nauseated too. That makes us friends.

  • Qitkat

    It was *one giant Bitter Kitten* that tipped it over the edge for me. I will be snickering about that one all day.

    OK, we’re supposed to vote. I’m afraid I will have to go with my initial gut reaction, which was that this is a very intriguing dress, and I liked it. In. But with reservations, because I didn’t see THE GIANT SHEER ASS PANELS initially either. So tasteless and vulgar and tacky. Hmm, I have changed my vote, it has to be an automatic OUT if you can tell someone is truly *buttnekkid*.

  • SugarSnap108

    Of F’in Course. More evidence sheer panels ruin everything. If those panels had been solid fabric, or lined with something other than her bits, this would have been striking and lovely.

  • bellafigura1

    IN. I love this dress straight-on and don’t hate her ass enough to vote it Out. I agree about the shape, the geometry, the colors. Sophisticated!

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    I don’t hate you, Gwynnie, like the other bitter kittens here. Really I don’t. But I didn’t need to see that much of you — EVER — so OUT!

  • Julie Fountain

    Well I didn’t want to see her ass, but that’s not the only reason this gets an OUT… I really hate those sleeves too

  • RinPauler

    Front, very cool and beautiful in a strange way. And then when she turns to one side, my eyes turn off their functions

  • the puckered seaming on the netting makes her look like she has cellulite and some fat ass thighs.

  • fringebenefit

    OUT. I don’t hate her at all. But OUT.

  • I do love the overall effect, and in contrast to everyone else, I actually love Gwynie (it’s the both complete narcissism mixed with self-awareness and a sense of fun), but I can’t get behind the side panels on the skirt. If they were black and not see through I would be clapping my hands with glee but I going to vote OUT just for that one part. Spoils the overall look.

  • twocee

    No. Just no. I actually like GOOP but this is just so freaking ridiculous.

  • theblondette

    Hahahaha. This is hilarious. I’m going to give it an IN, because it’s perfectly suited to its premiere. The Iron Man franchise: idolising of technology, rampant casual misogyny, paternalism and jingoism, all smoothed over with cute Tony Starkisms and Pepper getting to be sassy! This dress encompasses it ALL! Good work, Gwynnie.

  • MK03

    Gwynnie, we know you’re proud of your gluten-free/dairy-free/food-free lifestyle, but we don’t want to see the direct results of it. Put some damn panties on.

  • Oh God, OUT. Like everyone else, I had the same reaction–I liked it until I saw the awful sheer sides. Good, lord, woman.

  • txngyrrl

    I loved the front, and then I saw the side shot and had an immediate WTF reaction.

  • susan6

    This time RDJ took the conservative dressing route, and Gwyneth went for Wackadoo Road. Those side panels could not possibly be flattering to anyone, no matter how skinny. Why put in sheer panels if you’re going to have a seam through the middle of them AND put them in places that will inevitably pucker? I…..I just don’t understand any of the possible thought processes of the designer.

  • Belvane

    IN. And I don’t hate her. I used to, but then I saw that series on traveling in Spain that she did with Mario Batali and actually came to like her quite a lot. That said, a sleek little topknot would have been good here. Otherwise, it’s sci-fi superhero’s girlfriend cool.

  • alyce1213

    We don’t ALL hate her.

    I do hate that dress, though. If the awful sheer parts were done in solid black, it would be killa, absolutely a knockout.

    • SewingSiren

      They only say that to appease the indignant hissing cat that just got pulled out of a good fight.

  • unbornfawn

    No. OUT.

  • LuisaNL

    ok, THAT’s tacky. Gwyn, hun? We don’t really want to see your ass. I don’t care how fabulous it is. OUT.

  • ConnieBV

    When I have to worry about seeing hair, it’s gone too far. Out.

  • butterflysunita

    I call the model, Sung Hee, in the short version of the dress a WERQ. I have no problems with calling Gwyneth an OUT.

  • OUT. So, so, so tacky.

    • Also, why is there a SEAM down the sheer panel? Did they run out of shear mesh?

  • This is just trashy. And GOOP isn’t trashy right? Pink Himalayan sea salts and $5k bags for spring Goop? NEVER. But fact: when I can see your ass, it’s trash.

  • First I was a little bugged that the textures of the white fabrics did not match, but I liked the overall shape. I especially liked the top because it had a different shape than normally seen. And then like everyone else, it seems, I saw the walking photo from the side. Too vulgar! OUT!

  • hellkell

    HELL NO. I can smell the desperation.

  • kikisayshi

    ooohhhh, I liked it until I saw the model with the short skirt, which was so much better. Then I saw the side view and gasped. I was almost gonna say that no one else could pull this off, which is probably true. Unfortunately neither can she. OUT OUT OUT!

  • lucyloo222

    OUT! Outtie out out with out sauce. NO ONE who just got voted “most beautiful” could possibly be that desperate for attention.

  • ovarB

    NO!! Ass cheeks peeking out of anything can be scary!! Hospital gowns, assless chaps, Gwynnie’s dress. The back of that dress looks like a shit shield ready to serve and defend against the tyranny of Gywnnie’s no carb low carb diet. But more important that peeky cheeks…
    “And that’s why we Lutherans use grape Kool-Aid for the blood of Christ.”

  • Rand Ortega

    I was so loving the look thinking, “Pepper’s BRINGIN’–” then saw the side shot & realized, “Pepper’s bringin’…EVERYTHING”.

  • Watts

    OUT. The pulling on the side seam in the sixth picture at first glance gives the appearance of cellulite. Which rather defeats the purpose of showing so much skin.

  • stubbornthoughts

    No hate for Gwennie here. And I love this dress for this premiere, but those sheer panels are way too much.

    I so badly want to rank this an “In” despite those horrible panels. Oh fuck it – IN.

  • Um, out. I kind of wish she had worn the shorter skirt that matches the top. Could have shown off her legs still.

  • Peeve

    I like the two models’ dresses much better. Don’t like it much even from the front. Then Gwynnie turns and throws a hip out of joint for a picture, and it’s “Oh, hell to the NO!!!”.Definitely Tackytown.

  • Amy Lashmet

    JLo is super jealous. Why did Goopy get this dress and not me?

  • poggi

    While I really like the gown and short dress on the models (the sheer panels seem quite a bit slimmer on the model’s gown), on Paltrow this crosses the line between metaphorical pole dancing and actual pole dancing. Out.

  • snarkykitten

    I think this dress would like like ass on anyone.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Nice until you get to the side view. So that’s an OUT from me.

  • Out, although the original short dress is kind of cute. And she’s certainly a beautiful woman, but dresses like that are just tacky and a little desperate.

  • nnbb

    Just ugly. Inside and out.

  • SewingSiren

    The dress is so beautiful from the front and back, but the side panel is just horrid. Super ugly.

  • TheAmericaness

    IN!!!! WERQ IT! She looks good and it’s perfect for this venue.

  • It’s not just the sheer panel. It’s that the sheer panel has a seam! WHY O WHY.

    This might work for me with seam…nah, it wouldn’t. I don’t need to see that much Paltrow.

  • M. H. Leader

    I’m screaming in pain here. I don’t like it from any angle, any direction, any perspective.

    My eyes hurt.

    (Can I vote OUT a few more times???)

  • MartyBellerMask

    Too much, way too much. Big old OUT.

  • trisker

    OUT. Tasteless exhibitionism.

  • IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3

  • H2olovngrl

    That is too much sheer side panel. Good from the front, not so much in that side view. Regardless of how far my eyes roll back in my head just thinking about her, I can actually look at her and begrudgingly decide whether she looks good or not, and for me, the giant panels killed it. OUT

  • I can’t be mad at her. She is rocking this dress in a way very, very few others could. I like that she is a risk-taker on the red carpet, and doesn’t shy away from challenging dresses, so I give her a Brava Darling even though that is a whole lot of (very sculpted) ass cheek.

  • Pennymac

    Thank Jeebus her hand is where it is in picture #6 or we’d all have been treated to more of the worlds most beautiful ass’s ass than we could handle.
    OUT based on the sheer LOOK AT ME NO UNDIES panels alone….

  • Brooke Patterson


  • korilian

    Gorgeous, but yeah, that side panel is just a bit too much.

  • TSkot

    Loved from the front, but once I saw the sides? OUT

  • In, actually. She’s rocking kind of a kimonoesque vibe (you can see the obi and the wide sleeves; you can see the lines) and for once she doesn’t look like she’s dying.

  • Jon

    If the sides weren’t completely sheer, this would be fantastic. Blanchett-level fantastic. With the sides bare, I…have questions.

  • Aly Light

    *eyeroll* OUT.

  • maggiemaybe

    Eeew. Just stop it.

  • Guest

    I might be alone here but I say IN…very few people could pull this off but she is one of them

  • Beverly Kozma

    OUT. Orca.

  • It reminds me of a giant maxi-pad.

  • LaSylphide


  • BazoDee

    No, just no. There are no words.

  • MerBearStare

    Out, out, out. Those sheer panels are tacky, tacky, tacky.

  • IN IN IN! Love this!

  • Lisa_Co

    Those sheer side panels? No. OUT.

  • frederieke

    I like it. I don’t know why. I even like that her ass is almost showing….I must be high.

  • pivia

    Out. Was debating an “in” because the lines of the dress are shapely, but the sheerness overrides that. Ergo: O.U.T.

  • harlowish

    It goes against everything I usually find beautiful and/or tasteful, but for some reason I love it. IN.

  • CommentsByKatie

    I love it, actually, but I have always had Kayne’s taste in clothing. I don’t even mind the side panels; what i DO mind is the SEAM RUNNING DOWN THE SIDE PANELS. I am a seamstress and I am sure that the seam was unnecessary; the hip angle could have been absorbed into the other two nearby seams. Plus silk chiffon stretches, so that would help ease the hip angle. The sheer legs are eye-rolling on their own, but the seam totally ruins the sheer eleganza effect. Still an all around IN for me, though!

  • rkdgal

    Can’t endorse this one. Too much LITERAL hot buttered ass for me. Gwynnie, they make curling irons and bobby pins, you know — look into them for a change!

  • I’m so tired of lady stars having to show up in clothing that either explicitly or mimics being visibly nude at events. It’s getting worse and worse lately, and to me, it’s a sign of the inequality that continues in Hollywood and elsewhere. If a man were to show up in so much as a shirt that was made out of sheer fabric, he’d be considered ridiculous, but an Oscar-winning actress is pretty much expected to at least show her legs on the red carpet, and now being able to see everything from ankle to shoulder is considered chic.

    It’s disturbing.

    • formerlyAnon

      I’d like this multiple times if I could.

    • Sunraya

      She oesnt have to show up half asked. Plent of. Actresses would refuse to be caught dead in this. She wore it because he wanted to show her ass.

  • Chantry Banks

    Oh, I kinda really, really love it. But I might have terrible taste in everything. So, it is an in for me.

  • 909girl601world

    No. This ish is horrid.

  • fashionzombie

    I do not like the sheer panels of doom, but I still have to say IN. That’s a weird dress, and she looks really great, although I wish I wasn’t seeing so much of her ass. As stated by Uncle and Uncle, it works in a scifi setting. And it’s Marvel, folks, so the tackier the better.

  • Out. I have no distaste for her as a human but that’s just vulgar.

  • anotherkate

    I had the same reaction as TLo–love the weirdness of the shape, love the colors, love the effect…then NAKED! AS for me, I don’t think I can get over how naked it is. I don’t mind sheer panels as a concept, but I really don’t ever want to know with such certainty that a person is not wearing underwear.

  • Joyce VG


  • As I’m scrolling… “Why isn’t this a WER…Ohhhhhhhh.” Still love the front more than I hate the overuse of sheer, so I’m going with IN, but barely.

  • Well, I hope she either a) didn’t stay for the actual movie, or b) was allowed to change before watching said movie, because wow would I not want to sit through a 2 hour-plus explosion fest wearing no underwear and with my (World’s. Most. Beautiful.) buttocks in contact with a movie theater seat.

  • jennifervney

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NOOOOOOOOOOOO! SO vulgar!!! Without the sheer panels this would’ve been so awesome.

  • JauntyJohn

    IN. Bottom line: (see what I did there?) she looks amazing and it absolutely suits the occasion.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I loved it until she turned around. However, using your venue criteria you’re right, it’s an in. I want to hate her but she’s a damned find actress and with me, talent is always beautiful.

  • Sadie-Ann

    Didn’t we just see a tiny teenager at this event? I feel like this is the wrong place for so much skin.

    Anyway, I always have trouble with my dresses twisting some when I move or sit down. Imagine that happening in this dress.

  • rainwood1

    Hate the sheer, hate the seam, hate the lack of boob support, hate the satin, hate the green, hate the shoes, hate the hair. OUT, far OUT.

  • MoHub

    What really scares me is that the Fashion Police will probably like this.

  • Sally Brownson

    OUT. It was so good, and then she went and ruined it with those damn sheer panels. The model doesn’t have those, so why does she?

  • ringthing

    Any dress where both your pelvic bones and your ass are showing get an OUT.

  • My first reaction: Is it a vase or is it two profiles? Still can only see it that way. HATE the sheer sides and find them tacky. It has nothing to do with it being the despised Gwyneth. I’d hate them on anyone. Best seen only head-on and asking, Is it a vase or is it two profiles? I can’t decide.

  • Buffy

    If the sheer panels had been more like a sheer ribbon… maaaayyyyyybe. But as it stands now, it’s an OUT.

  • I don’t love the side-butt, but she gets all the points for wearing it. And it was designed to be worn. So, IN.

  • I don’t fancy myself a prude, but OUT. It’s just far too much ass.

  • in the immortal words of Men on Film: “HATED-it”! in spite of the appropriate sci-fi-ness, all those odd curves and lines and multiple textures just look awkward to me. as for the peep show, it’s the most entertaining part of the look. in a totally inappropriate way.

    • l_c_ann

      Points for remembering In Living Color.

    • formerlyAnon

      Man, now some of their little back-and-forths are playing in my head. This is a new category of earworm, for sure!

  • The sheer is wack for sure but the straight on look is so good it has to be an IN.

  • bailey debruynkops


  • Oh man, I was all set to like this despite my general disinterest in not-as-cool-as-Margot-Tenenbaum Gwyneth because the dress looked so cool, but then I saw it was sheer all the way down. And that just grossed me out. Too much, needed a lining or something. Out.

  • Slutty Soap Opera Penguin.

  • Dagney

    IN!!! A fun and vibarant risk. Love.

  • jetpackdino

    Q: When a lava lamp gets really really sick, and has to wear a hospital gown to get colonoscopy, what does that gown look like?

  • Carla_Charlton

    COMPLETELY AGREE with you! When I first saw it, I appreciated that she was doing something different and that she hadn’t gone for super short, but then I saw the butt and thigh and, honestly, I felt very annoyed. I really wanted to like this, but she had ruin it. Just as Halle Berry can look desperate to show how hot she is, this is saying the same thing about GP.

  • jmorino08

    I was all, “That’s kind of interesting…. I don’t hate it… Her face is good…” RECORD SCRATCH “Whaaaa!?!?! Dafuq????”


  • pop_top

    LMAO at how she looks in the 6th photo. A resounding OUT.

  • subwaycars

    IN, for sure. It’s stunning and different and interesting, and it actually isn’t scandalous despite my expectations when I saw a “gwynnie doesn’t wear underwear!!!” headlines

  • I hate to do it, but this is an IN. Amazing dress that few women can pull off. I didn’t think it was in her wheel house, but gotta give her some credit. How do you compete with RDJ’s red carpet wear? This.

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    OUT. OUT. OUT. If she had stuck to the first outfit as modelled by Sung Hee, this would have been an in. But paring the top with that skirt… this is just Heidi Klum territory.

  • Dam_Angel

    In. But I have never seen her so thin and it pleases me to know she must be very hungry.

  • Front was pretty palatable, but the side is hid-e-ous. Hell to the no, and OUT.

  • formerlyAnon

    OUT. I liked it till I got a gander at her haunches. Then it just looked like the world’s least sexy boudoir gown.


  • Sunshine16

    How, oh how, could my uncles give this a grudging in?! I give it an ass-tastic O.U.T.

  • Imasewsure

    The most beautiful woman in the world is OUT…

  • embers618

    OUT. Does there really have to be a SEAM in the middle of the sheer panel? I’m a rudimentary seamstress at best, but surely it would not have been that much more difficult to put this dress together without putting a huge line through it. I could (maybe) have gotten on board if I hadn’t seen that side shot, but the view from the side is an absolute dealbreaker.

  • I was in until the sidebutt.

  • OUT. First, it’s the belly flap (it’s like a super flat fanny pack! Only fashiony!). But then? Butt? NO. I don’t care if it looks great, ain’t nobody got time for your butt. PUT IT AWAY. If you were trying to get rid of the haters, you failed, Gwynnie. No poop from the Goop.

  • World’s Most Beautiful Dress on the train straight to Tackytown.

  • Plus also, I didn’t know Louboutin made stripper heels.

  • frannyprof

    Sheer side panels always = OUT

  • Snailstsichr

    instead of scroll down fug, it is turn around fug. OUT for the sheer panels. just UGH!

  • girliecue

    I’m all IN for voting her World’s Most Beautiful Ass! Wait, what….that’s not what we’re voting on? In that case, this is a big ol’ OUT. I don’t care whose ass is in this monstrous concoction or how beautiful their ass is. I don’t want to see it. Especially in this abomination.

  • appliquer

    Could it be any more out? And please do something different with the hair!!!

  • VicD

    The empress has no clothes – at least, not enough clothes where it counts.

  • blueberrypanckae

    the side view looks like cheap panty hose…and I am not sure how it is making her legs look so big..and the stripper heels…overall NO!

  • Oh, dear.

  • imspinningaround

    A great dress, good hair, and well-chosen accessories are part of a WERQ. But nothing truly MAKES a WERQ like attitude, and the attitude this ensemble is demonstrating is “Yes, I know you bitches hate me and my impossibly toned legs and my vanity cookbooks and my mealymouthed husband but MY SHEER SUPERHERO SEPARATES AND MY GRANITE-HARD GLUTES AND I GIVE NOT A SINGLE FUCK WHAT YOU THINK, PEONS.”

    Unmitigated, unqualified WERQ.

  • H2olovngrl

    I just realized I am also getting an “Emporer’s New Clothes” vibe off this as well.

  • Anniebet

    LOL, over 300 comments already. Chiming in to say OUT. That tacky side panel is made even tackier by the seam running down the middle of it.

  • OUT, OUT, OUT. That skirt is beyond tacky.

  • Spreecord

    This is one of the worst things I’ve seen in years. It would be awful on Florence Welch, it would be awful on Helen Mirren, and it’s offensively ugly on Goop.

  • Wendi126

    Fuck no

  • There’s out of the box and there’s beyond the pale. This is the latter. WAY tacky and no, Gwynnie, not everyone wishes to see your ass no matter how good you think it is.

  • And the fancy lobster bib sucks too…

  • She’s way too vanilla to pull off a dress like this. It’s wearing her.

  • prettybigkitty

    Jesus Christ on a cross that is one hidey dress!

  • out.
    i don’t like the weird peplum in the front, or her hair or her asscheeks. Maybe I’m being bias because she’s equivalent to light Mayo to me, but regardless, I don’t like it.

  • KayEmWhy

    I don’t even like sheer curtains! NO! OUT!

  • Elleachaudaucul

    Out. She’s a character from the fake movie in Argo who hatched from a L’eggs egg. The ass cheeks are just too tacky.

    ETA: The more I look at it, the more I like it. No! Must Resist!

  • Mimi

    OUT! Loved it till those awful side sheer panels – takes it right into Stripper Town.

  • I felt bad for hating Gwyneth so much yesterday and I came hear ashamed “like a wet kitten”, as we say in my native tongue., when I looked at the pictures. And then I saw the pictures…Now I feel vindicated! OUT

  • Carly Warnock

    no. you can almost see her whole ass.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Sheer side panels. The World’s Most Beautiful Ass is OUT.

  • a_liking

    The skin-baring is ridiculous, sure, but I can only DREAM of being confident enough to go out in public with no undies and my whole side showing. Honestly my biggest criticism of this is that the top makes her waist look…. wide? which I don’t think is true or the desired impact.

  • Holy Mole, that is some dress and some body. Though a little over the top w/the sheer side panels, but she can work it.

  • Good Lord, MY EYES. That is entirely too much information. OUT.

  • conniemd

    After the first pic and the two models, my thought was a tepid in, since it looked kinda star treky, but I thought the short skirt looked better with the peplum and sleeve details, but then I saw the side view and I literally did a WTF and yikes. My hubby loves women without underpants, so this would get a rave review from him I’m sure.

  • conniemd

    Oh and that was an OUT!

  • patticake1601

    Its so….vulgar. It goes beyond tacky.

  • HELL, no. Put it away, Lady Godiva.

  • MandyM

    OUT! I would have voted out on this dress no matter who was wearing it. That is too much real estate on display. But I hate her too. Just saying.

  • NO.
    But I do agree with TLo that at first glance I was ready to jump on board. Even with bad hair and shiny forhead. But then she turned and no. She is not Cher. This is not 1985.

  • Hate the sheer panels. This is a big OUT for me.

  • dalgirl

    PLEASE. No………….!

  • elzatelzabelz

    Maybe she’s contractually obligated to wear this by Tracey Anderson? OUT b/c desperately tacky JLo adjacent.

  • MissMariRose

    Oh heeeyyyy-ellllllllllll NO!

  • Coldie

    that smile says “I’m a legend in my own mind”

  • I love it. Would have preferred grey silk on the side panels. Which idiot decided to run the seam lines through the sheer panels? It ruins the flow of the skirt.

    Incidentally, this is also the outfit Pepper Potts wears when made an honorary Asgardian in Avengers 2.

  • ankali

    I think TLo, in an effort to be fair to Gwynnie, is actually overcompensating here. Yes, the dress is totally interesting at first glance, but the sheer side panels absolutely and incontrovertibly destroy it. Tacky, tacky, tacky, my stars!

  • Trisha26

    OUT. Good Lord, TLo – what is wrong with the two of you? This is Hideous, Horrible, Heinous AND whore-ndous, This is adult video awards disgusting. I’m taking a shower now.

    • DeGuz

      Yeah, that.

  • Louise Bryan

    I want to like her, but I don’t like the dress, and the side view was downright shocking. I suppose Tony might like to see Pepper dress like that, but I can’t imagine Pepper would do so of her own volition. OUT!

  • Slowfish57

    Only in a “world” that doesn’t include Fan Bingbing.

  • SophieCollier

    Oh Pepper Potts, you cheeky girl. IN. I prefer the short skirt that the runway model wore, but I actually kind of like the insanity of this ensemble. The hair is sad, but I still say IN.

  • At the risk of sounding unsophisticated, I don’t get this top and skirt at all. I think they’re atrocious. This outfit is one of those designs that would earn a low grade by a student or a competitor but since this is a runway look designed by a designer, we’re supposed to fawn all over it. This doesn’t flatter Gwyneth. She looks like a clown.

    I never realized until now how much responsibility and pressure come with an awarded title. The hair makes everything worse. Nothing more to say. I think I’ll read the comments of others to make sense out of all this.

  • akprincess72

    That’s tacky AND fug.

  • That dress now has to be incinerated for having direct contact with Gywenie’s non panty covered cooch & crack. Love the dress, loathe the woman wearing it.

  • IamstillAnonymous


  • That is some tacky shit.

  • AutumnInNY

    Everything about Goopy is just hideous. Period. She must pay her publicist a fortune. Nobody listens to what People Magazine says and it won’t make anyone forget she got the title she deserves last week. She’s still “most hated celebrity” to most of us and that’s a title she well earned.

  • MiriamMc75

    Good god NO! Tackier than all hell. OUT, OUT, a thousand times OUT!

  • MaryAtRealityTea

    Oh good god – OUT! Let’s not condone her narcissism!

  • I cannot be objective and look at the dress for what it is without thinking of her complete lack of self-awareness (and, increasingly, self control). People find her annoying because she can’t stop talking about herself and then she walks down a red carpet with her butt hanging out? Get a hold of yourself. OUT.

  • aykhan

    OUT – say no to visible ass cheek on the RC. This could have been a really good look if the side panels were opaque.

  • Gott in Himmel, NO…big fat OUT. Much prefer that top with the short skirt…better proportions and the sheer crap on the sides? Pfft tacky tacky tacky and just way too much going on. OUT OUT OUT

  • demidaemon

    I actually like this straight on from the front and back, but that side view is really almost out-worthy. I’m torn. But, she is serving, so I will give her a marginal IN this time. Don’t get used to it, though.

  • Seriously? Sheer ass panels and a neck growth do not an IN make, even if said neck growth is (appropriately, for its host) diamond-encrusted. OUT. And ick.

  • No. Oh no.

  • Despite the sheer side-panels, I like it. IN from me.

  • I’m gonna give her an IN. Although can I also just say she looks way better with the redder hair she has in the whole franchise …. because the blonde washes her out badly. Does she have eyebrows.

  • So, does her dress look like a vase or two silhouettes facing each other?

  • IN IN IN! I don’t care what anyone else says, I LOVE her.

  • ItsDicey

    Exactly! OUT.

  • lizajane1776

    My thoughts when I saw it from the front was “Nice dress…for TILDA!” And then she turned around. Tacky. Out.

  • StrandedFashionista

    I’m going to pretend that the sheer panels only look like they’re revealing far too much of her leg and ass by some trick of the light and they’re actually tastefully lined somehow. So, on the architectural merits of the dress, IN.

  • Alyssa

    Out. I would have said IN until I saw how much of her goods she has on display. I prefer the old adage about leaving some things to the imagination…

  • PeaceBang

    *Groan of pain* There I was all ready to be generously pro-Gwynnie and then I got the rear view sheer nylon butt shot. HELL. NO.

  • guest2visits

    This is just a brand new ugly. From the massive see-thru pantyhose-like panels complete with seams; to the worst
    configuration of peekaboo panels – very unflattering for Gwyneth; not to mention how home-ec project this looks.
    She does look like someone hired to stand at the door to a second rate sci-fi event, though. So tacky. OUT.

  • LC3203

    I don’t understand why she had to get all matchy match with the separates when the original look was varied. Also? She’s somebody’s mother now. I don’t care how great your ass is. You’re not 25. Grow up. Out.

  • littlemissstrange

    Ummm…. aren’t the Iron Man movies kind of marketed towards kids? This may be the sluttiest dress I’ve ever seen at a kids’ movie premiere. Showing your bare ass to children: OUT.

    Also that dress is ugly and cheap-looking in any setting. And I hate her.

  • Sure, why not. IN. Appropriate to the venue.

  • OUT. I hate the skirt and definitely TMI going on.

  • I am just so incredibly BORED by her. She sucks the life out of everything. She makes me want to pound my head on my desk.

  • MzzPants

    Good God, OUT!

  • phrenk

    I don’t like the stomach or sleeve things, but I like everything else. IN.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Just saw a different set of pictures of the same outfit and she is wearing 2 different earrings. There’s the big open-work dangly one in her left ear and a big solitaire stud in the other,

  • IN, If you got it, flaunt it.

  • I can’t do it I already have enough trouble accepting the common use of leggings as pants with no shirt to cover someone’s bum let alone actually showing your bum.

  • ccm800

    OUT. I wonder if red carpets smell like a women’s locker room

  • librarygrrl64

    It was a mild “in” at first (mild because I think the top could fit better), that changed to a raging “OUT!!!!!” as soon as I saw the sheer skirt panels.

  • samo_samo

    Had she chosen the short version, I think I would have said IN, but I’m saying OUT to the long version. I’ve seen too much…much too much. Literally and figuratively overexposed.

  • OUT.

  • Eric Stott

    As soon as I saw how sheer it was it went from Wow! to Whore!

  • Thathoodwink

    Don’t nobody want to see some ass from some old hag! Stop kidding yourself and leave dat to the younger crowd, ya dope ya.

  • I think its lovely from the front but kind of desperate from the side. I don’t get it. Out.

  • mhlmh

    OUT. It had a lot of potential, especially that green. But the sheer panels are way too much. It would have been an in otherwise.

  • Kristy Evans

    I prefer “girls, you’re both pretty” to end fights, especially if it’s two men. As for the dress…I like the idea of it. But that is a LOT of ass. If the panel was a little smaller, I could maybe get behind this. Hahahaha behind! Okay, I’m done. OUT.

  • Melizmatic

    In, just for the ‘sheer’ high-interest factor of the design.

    Pun intended.

  • I know I’m way late on this, but i like it – plus she looks like she’s having fun – which is kinda rare

  • Gatto Nero

    The other separates as paired on the models work much better. As a conceptual look this is sort of interesting. But that’s just way too great an expanse of bare acreage on view — and with a tacky seam running right through it. It actually makes me feel a bit sick — but whether more for her or for those of us who are witnessing it, I’m not sure. This is so far out she’s a mere speck in the distance.
