Gwyneth Paltrow wore ruffled, sheer Fendi to the Golden Globes: tacky & cheap?

It felt like people legitimately gasped when Gwyneth Paltrow came onto the Golden Globes red carpet, and the gasps were not because Gwyneth looked amazing. In fact, I’m struggling to even remember a moment in the recent past when Gwyneth walked a carpet looking great. But this was something else… this was Lena Dunham-esque fashion trolling. This was “look at me, I’m so avant-garde, you don’t even understand what I’m wearing.” Either that or Gwyneth has zero style and her stylist absolutely loathes her. Her hair stylist and makeup person must hate her too, by the way.

Gwyneth wore this Fendi gown and it was entirely inappropriate. It was completely unlined, and I feel like the matching “panties” were sheer enough that we could make out everything too. The back view was a giant YIKES. Gwyneth probably thinks that she can wear anything off the runway, but there’s a reason why so few actresses do that – most women don’t WANT their ruffled ass hanging out at the Globes.

Goop was there as executive producer on her husband’s show, The Politician, where she also has a supporting role. But she also got to present Best Supporting Actress to Laura Dern, and it was just… Peak Nemesis, or something. Ugh, I’m so mad about all of this! It drives me crazy that Gwyneth thinks her brassy blonde hair still needs a center part. Her makeup is awful too.

Zoey Deutch also wore Fendi. I’m not in love with this either, but imagine a Sliding Doors situation where Gwyneth wore this instead. People would have loved it.

    I’m in love with Zoey’s gown. Imagine that on my skin, Lupita or Solange would’ve looked lovely.

  2. Feebee says:

    Well she looked great! We can all see how great she looks because there’s not much we can’t see. That dress is god awful.

    Her stylist must hate her. It’s the only explanation. Friends just don’t let friends walk out the door looking like that.

    • minx says:

      It’s hideous.

      • Lady2Lazy says:

        She did no one any favors last night in that dress except to make those who were on the fence of so-so look better. She is delusional to me.

    • Jane says:

      I think the brown dress is glorious! But I hate the bra straps! To go so far and then have such a lame mistake!!

    • Bella DuPont says:

      Gwyneth probably thinks:

      “That b-tch J.Lo, thinks she can pull off playing a stripper (at 70!) and now she’s running around for an Oscar?! Hold my cleanse….”

      • Antonym says:

        “Hold my cleanse…”

        OMG this is literally the funniest thing I’ve ever read here. I’m going to be chuckling about this for quite awhile and am probably at risk of using it at some point (which I’m sure will get me odd looks from non-CBers).

      • Trillion says:

        Bella DuPont FTW!

    • Look up pic of Rose Leslie and Kit Harris at Golden Globes. Now there’s a woman who gets it right with a sheer dress every single time. Goop’s is just a mess.

  3. Lou says:

    Is it an absolutely tacky outfit? Yes. But can I still give a *golf clap* for Gwyneth’s bod looking like that at 47?

    • Kasia says:

      That’s the sole purpose of this outfit. To show off her insane body.

      • stormsmama says:

        the reason she wore that was so that she would be a topic of talk today
        HER BODY does look amazing and she wants us all to see it (insert eye roll)

      • Bella DuPont says:

        Yup exactly. A nice, savvy way to audition for any “super hot milf” type roles that may be going around, by stealth.

        Genius infact.

      • Nikki* says:

        Too true, but she looks like a bad I Dream of Jeannie.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I don’t think the dress is flattering to her body at all. The color is so drab and….waste-like, but the cut and excess fabric are terrible too. The area around her waist makes her look wide when she totally isn’t.

  4. vexa says:

    So many ‘top tier’ women showed up looking terrible, and Gwyneth was absolutely the worst of the bunch – I truly cannot understand what she was thinking with this…. on the otherhand, I thought Zoey looked fabulous!

  5. Carmen says:

    I love the yellow color. Not crazy about the balloon sleeves.

  6. Caitlin says:

    Does Goop have a good body? Absolutely yes. For any age her body is banging. But that dress? It’s just every direction YIKES the colour? OMG the colour. Would it have been better in any other colour? Like pink? Yeah a tad but it’s still terrible and completely inappropriate, the underwear was still sheer too. Zoey looks great, she’s absolutely stunning. Her jumpsuit is perfect for a girl her age and her slim frame. It’s fun and different without being a total sack like Jodie Comer

    • Eliza_ says:

      The dress was anti-GOOP brand. Tacky. Thirsty. Desperate. If GOOP is supposed to be the coolest girl in school, this dress proved otherwise.

      • Bella DuPont says:

        @ Eliza

        Au contraire. I actually quite like the wild aggression here. This was a statement of intent for the starting decade to the younger actresses. I imagine it’s like taking a shoulder-fired, rocket-propelled grenade, to a local street corner knife-fight.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        For your enjoyment I invite one and all to enhance the picture where Goop is walking in and take a good look at the staff lady’s face. I feel she speaks for us all when she sees Goop walk by. That dress is a mid life crisis come to life in a bathrobe that was attacked by a buzz saw. My God.

    • MC2 says:

      The underwear was the worst! And the bra straps from the back being neither the color of the dress or sheer?! Ugh! Seeing the bra straps from the back makes this look sooooo tacky & cheap to me. I guess her butt was supposed to distract, but it didn’t work for me.

    • Modiglia says:

      Does she have a great body though? “Naturally thin woman is thin”. Helen Mirren, for example, has a rockin’ body. Rachel Weisz, same. Gwyn was tall and thin and still is tall and thin.

  7. Talita says:

    That’s her way of saying “Look at me, my body is this good at 47! Life without ice cream is so worth it!”.

  8. Kay says:

    On a positive note, both ladies have fabulous jewellery! I especially love Zoey’s pieces.

  9. Boo says:

    Surely GPs outfit is evidence of narcissistic tendencies?! I mean that slightly tongue in cheek but really! It’s see through!! Just so incredibly self congratulatory and attention seeking.

    • Modiglia says:

      I do feel so sorry for her daughter. I know people say that often about celebrity children, but imagine being raised by that narcissist – one who degrades working-class women and values thinness above everything else, including health.

  10. Polly says:

    Gwyneth’s body looks awesome in that hideous dress. I don’t mind a centre part on her.

    Zoey reminds me of a yellow Gumby in this jumpsuit but still manages to pull it off somehow.

  11. Annaloo says:

    “I need attention, so I can act like I don’t need tattention” -Goop logic

    • lucy2 says:

      Everything about it is hideous, there’s no way she actually liked it, but just wants the attention. Ugh.

  12. My3cents says:

    That’s Goop for you. Even her dresses are passive aggressive.

    • K says:

      Ha, yep. She thinks she’s got “cool girl” down pat, but she’s actually the “mean girl.”

  13. Arpeggi says:

    So the empress was naked. Even if GP’s body is great (even if it wasn’t toned/slim/whatever, if it gets you where you gotta go and do what it ought to it’s a good body anyway), she shouldn’t impose its view to the rest of us. It’s too exhibitionist, like an unsolicited nude pic, and it’s a god awful dress!

  14. smcollins says:

    My main takeaway from looking at this dress is that Fendi should stick to handbags

  15. Bitchy architect says:

    Wow- this just reeks of mid- life crisis level desperation. I mean she’s already been on a million magazine covers and her new husband has posted multiple photos of her in a bathing suit- that she still feels the need to do this is crazy toxic level narcissism and sad. I guess that whole thing about aging and things other than your looks becoming more important was just bull shit….now if Helen Mirren or Angela Bassett or someone without the ideal Hollywood body wore this I would have thought it was amazing.

    • Ali says:

      If my body looked like that I’d be really tempted to wear the same thing if my stylist said a bikini wasn’t appropriate. The brown color keeps her earth mother loves to run around barefoot hippy vibe going while showing off her centerfold body underneath.

    • stormsmama says:

      Angela Bassett has an AMAZING body — not sure what you meant??

      • Christina says:

        Bitchy artist, your racial bias is on display. Black doesn’t equal old or unfit. It equals marginalized, as in comments like yours. And old doesn’t equal a crappy body. Morten has a better body than a lot of women in Hollywood. She is fit with big boobs. She is older, but she has a Hollywood body.

        Paltrow is dressed for the music business. This would work at the Grammys on a pop star. Maybe in a more vibrant color.

      • bitchy architect says:

        Agree with you that both Angela Basset and Helen Mirren have amazing bodies and amazing style but because of their age they are not considered”hot”. My wording was terrible.

    • Christina says:

      And Bitchy Architect, you are awesome! Thanks for making me believe in you and your kindness, and your bitchiness, too!!! Not like you need my approval, but I appreciate your coming back and actually understanding what we wrote. XO

  16. Lena says:

    Who wears a brown gown anything? But like the above poster said in any color it would have looked ridiculous for this event. I wish she would get a side parted pixie or at least a shoulder length bob. She would look so much better. I think some women just hang on to the flowing hair like they had in their youth like it makes them younger or something, not what’s most flattering.

  17. Big Bertha says:

    The top part of the dress would have been beautiful in black, paired with a black satin sash and tuxedo pants, emerald green mules and gigantic green jade hoops. I love Zoey’s dress, but would have looked better on Goop.

  18. Bookie says:

    The necklace underneath was the worst part of an already tacky outfit.

    • dlc says:

      I liked he necklace underneath. I…sort of liked the dress? It’s 5 years behind the trend, but I like the weird brown color and My GOD her body. But she seemed try hard and uncomfortable at the same time? I’m unsure of my end opinion.

    • Scal says:

      Those diamonds deserved better. If I was bulgari I’d be so angry she wasted that necklace.

    • Ali says:

      And then she went home and banged her husband while wearing just the necklace. That’s why it was underneath the dress lol.

    • prettypersuasion says:

      ugh same. it really bothers me.

      • amayson1977 says:

        WHY IS THE NECKLACE UNDERNEATH???? Yes, I’m shouting. Why bother wearing that beautiful necklace underneath that fug mess of cheap brown sheer curtains?? I’m such a peasant.

    • tiredTreaded says:

      I wore things like this in my druggy daze- thankfully pre-social media, so I only admit in anon posts. What’s wrong w Goop?.

  19. Alberto Delano XO says:

    So, funniest of things, Gwyneth’s stylist is the same as Saoirse Ronan’s, who always kills it at the Globes. Somebody either didn’t pay attention to sound advice or someone got tired of Gwyneth’s shit.

  20. Anne says:

    Zoey looked fabulous and I like the combination of blue stones and yellow dress.
    As for GOOP, my only explanation is that she really wanted to show us her abs for some reason.

  21. Gatorlover says:

    Why does GOOP bother with the ‘dress’ getting in the way? Why not just own it and do a full-up Cher?

    • Christina says:

      I agree, Gator. If she wants to be Cher or Rhianna, grab the bull by the horns and just go for it. Rihanna does it beautifully because she knows when and where to do it. The Globes isn’t the Grammys or the MTV Music Awards. If she was at some Fashion gala, sure! But this event is about “the work”, not her abs. Unless she was Cher. If Cher is there, that’s her aesthetic, so it works. She was criticized for doing it when she did do it, but many of us remember Cher’s Oscar race fashion fondly because she didn’t cover up for the movie people. She dressed as a musician/pop star.

  22. Soupie says:

    Ugh both the dress and the jumpsuit are strange. The yellow number could be ok in a different color or black. Gwyneth’s dress should stay on the runway or in a magazine.

    Gwyneth Paltrow and Lori Loughlin: same vibe, same facial expression, same delusional narcissism.

  23. Genevieve says:

    Just because you are thin, doesn’t mean you can wear everything. Seeing here ribcage wasn’t flattering —> GP I’m talking to you…..

    I didn’t understand the dress.

  24. Other Renee says:

    Goop should have said no to the dress.

  25. Marianne says:

    I really liked Zoey’s outfit especially with that pop of blue in the necklace.


  26. Sarah says:

    Gweneth looks like she’s wearing my Nana’s shower curtain from the 70s over my Nana’s lingerie from the 70s.

  27. grumpyterrier says:

    Strangely, I love Gwyneth’s dress. I love the color, how sheer it is, how the necklace is underneath, all the weirdness is somehow very pretty to me.

  28. Amanda says:

    That is such a *terrifyingly* bad dress and the slicked down hair is even worse. All the money in the world and this???? I honestly feel like she used to have a generally chic if simple style, fifteen or twenty-five years ago. But this is just so so fugly.

  29. JulieCarr says:

    I love Gwyneth’s dress, and I really love the way it’s styled with the necklace underneath.

    This kind of dress is why I like red carpets. For the bold, weird, silly, ugly dresses, not the safe, pretty, refined dresses.

  30. Giddy says:

    Goop’s dress was absolute proof of her narcissism…as if we needed more. The naked dress moment is usually brought to us by a plus one bit “actress”, not an A-lister. Goop probably thinks she was doing a public service by sharing her naked body. No thanks Goopy.

  31. Talie says:

    I think this was just Gwyneth flexing on everyone that she can still pull looks right off the runway even though she’s no longer considered an actress anymore. She knows the fashion press will fawn over her and the mainstream media will clown her – but still give her more attention than anyone who took home an award.

  32. BK says:

    This looks like something you would wear to Coachella prom

  33. Boo says:

    You could see her whole ass. It was awful.

  34. JanetFerber says:

    Agreed she wanted to show off her toned bod and maybe tacky was the look she wanted. Jennifer Lopez, with an even better super-toned bod (and slightly older than Goop) has killed it with a number of dresses without looking tacky (I’m thinking particularly of those two green dresses, Gucci?)

  35. Lala11_7 says:

    I have to say this is a WHOLE WORLD OF NO for me….

  36. kerwood says:

    Somebody bribed her stylists. In fact, Gwynnie’s been so bitchy to so many other actresses that they probably had a whip-round to come up with an extra BIG bribe.

  37. HK9 says:

    Her house must have no mirrors.

  38. Bahare says:

    I’d go naked if I had to get to wear the jewelry on Zoey.

  39. BANANIE says:

    My sister told me Goop’s look was “haute roach” And now I can’t get that out of my head!

    • Redgrl says:

      Haute roach! That’s hilarious! I personally thought it looked like an unflushed toilet,
      so your comment is way classier than mine!

  40. Nicegirl says:

    Yep, tacky & cheap.

    Gosh Zoey is pretty. I’m loving that her look is a jumpsuit, gimme that in black.

  41. judith a reeder says:

    That dress is horrible!!!

  42. Mar says:

    Her poop colored dress was like Little House on the Prarie on acid.
    She will be sure the worst dressed of many lists.
    The necklace it to die for though.

  43. ChillyWilly says:

    Dear God, Goop! What even is this color? Sepia? Ugh. And her ass cheeks are out! And is that necklace under the dress? Fug and tacky AF.
    Zoey looks great! Love the pop of blue in the jewelry.

  44. SM says:

    Imagine being so far up one’s own ass that you are convinced that coming to awards show with your ass hanging out is high fashion. Sometimes I would love to have some of that confidence for sure

  45. A says:

    This dress would have looked good on someone with sex appeal. She’s basic therefore cannot pull it off

  46. Annaloo says:

    Pantyhose! Pantyhose dress!

  47. iconoclast59 says:

    Best reader comment on Goop’s outfit: “Why was Paltrow cosplaying as white toast? Weird.”

  48. Veronica S. says:

    Honestly? I could dig a dress like this in a different color in a very different venue. Rihanna has pulled off similar clothing in different ones – the difference being that she chose an appropriate venue (fashion) where she was already meant to be the center of attention.

    What really makes this tacky isn’t the nudity, IMO, it’s the intent. We can talk about her great body, sure, but should we be talking about her great body in a venue where other people were supposed to be the center of attention?

  49. Mar says:

    I think she was channeling Lizzo.

  50. Earthbound says:

    I like it when people wear something memorable though, good or bad. Why does it seem usually its gonna be bad if its memorable? For a weird see through thing ….its not horrible. Yes prairie lingerie weird but I’m here for it.

  51. Cara says:

    I can’t stand Gwen, so seeing her look like a total jackass was terrific. Honestly, that woman is her own worst enemy sometimes. The acclaim she seeks gets in the way of all her assumed sense.

  52. Skatrine says:

    Looks like a diarrhea dress to me

  53. jenner says:

    She looks like a brown turd. Maybe it’s meant to symbolize the latest goopy colonic she’s hyping.

  54. Nikki says:

    I….actually loved the dress? I mean, I can’t stand her and it confuses me to type this, but I loved her dress, her look, she looked amazing….


  55. Katebush says:

    It’s truly terrible . I can’t understand anyone saying it’s fashion cos it really isn’t. I don’t understand the point of it and to those who says she has a great body .. doesn’t everyone in Hollywood??
    In my humble opinion her body ain’t that great …she’s just skinny lol so what?!

  56. Peter says:

    the dress is really ALL about the BODY. SO THIN .

  57. K says:

    She looks like a poop emoji in that thing. Goop as poop. I’ve been annoyed by her for over 20 years.

  58. Alex says:

    I wonder if Gwen’s dress is supposed to be a call back to that one gauzy sheer one she wore to….what, the Oscars? like circa…’99?
