'I should have worn a bra': Gwyneth Paltrow recalls her worst Oscar red carpet moments
She always looks effortlessly chic and sophisticated on the red carpet.
But Gwyneth Paltrow has confessed to having at least two face-palm fashion blunders at the Oscars on her GOOP blog this week.
The Oscar-winning 40-year-old, who skipped Sunday's ceremony, selected her worst-dressed years as 2000 and 2002, respectively.
The worst: Oscar-winning Gwyneth Paltrow wishes she'd worn a bra with this gothy Alexander McQueen gown in 2002 and called her 2000 silvery frock 'not Oscars material'
The best: The Royal Tenenbaums star credits stylist Elizabeth Saltzman for selecting her white Tom Ford Oscar gown and cape as well as her pink Prada dress at the Venice Film Festival
'The first is the Calvin Klein. It's an okay dress but not Oscars material. I chose it because I wanted to disappear that year,' the yoga-toned star said of the silvery cocktail dress.
'Also, the goth Alexander McQueen I wore a few years later. 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.'
Gwyneth added: 'Then, it would have worked as I wanted it to - a little bit of punk at the Oscars.'
The Royal Tenenbaums star has since relied on the keen eye of her stylist Elizabeth Saltzman, who's also styled shoots for American Vogue and Vanity Fair.
Heads up: Paltrow stats in the highly-anticipated action three-quel, Iron Man 3, due out May 3
'I think they are all pretty maje. I can say this because I have just about nothing to do with it,' Paltrow said of her more recent red carpet attire.
'Standouts for me are the pink Prada dress at the 2011 Venice Film Festival, and of course the white Tom Ford from the Oscars last year.'
Fashion experts have since called the angelic column gown and cape incredibly influential on all the white and light-coloured frocks at this year's Oscars.
Among the Shakespeare in Love star's favourite trend-setting fashionistas are designer Stella McCartney, funnywoman Rashida Jones, pop star Beyonce, and leggy Cameron Diaz.
'Stella McCartney always looks amazing. She has a way of making you covet her sweatpants and T-shirt, she just wears clothes so well,' gushed Gwyneth.
'I love Rashida Jones' hot nerd vibe and Beyonce’s playfulness in trying different trends. I love Cameron Diaz's ability to rock silver nails and layer tons of tiny gold jewelry. I am also very inspired by street style in London where I have lived pretty much for 10 years.'
The blonde Emmy winner has two films due out this year - the Spanish Picasso biopic 33 días and the highly-anticipated action three-quel, Iron Man 3.
Gwyneth has been married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for a decade.
She and the 35-year-old Englishman have two children - eight-year-old daughter Apple and six-year-old son Moses.
