Gwyneth Paltrow is bringing sexy to the red carpet of this year's Costume Institute Gala. The leading lady of "Country Strong" turned heads on fashion's biggest night of the year by rocking a mini-dress that shows off her back, ribcage and side cleavage when coming to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday, May 7.
The silver Prada halter dress Paltrow wore is short at the front and a little longer at the back. It also features soft blue paillettes pockets on the sides. The 39-year-old actress herself completed her look for the soiree with gunmetal grey peep toe stilettos, diamond hoop earrings with an emerald leaf design and a copper satin clutch. She also wore minimal make-up and put her hair up in a sleek bun.
Just a day earlier, Paltrow was criticized by several media outlets over her choice of dress at "The Conversation" Launch Celebration. Showing up at DVF Studio in New York City on Sunday, May 6 night, the Pepper Potts of "The Avengers" put on a little black dress with a sheer paneling that gives a square-shaped glimpse at her cleavage.
