When Gwyneth Paltrow visited Ellen for a sit-down, she couldn’t skirt the issue. “For some reason this outfit that you wore are the [Iron Man 3] premiere got a lot of attention,” Ellen asks, coyly. “Did you know?”
“I kind of had a disaster,” Gwyneth says. “Let’s just say everyone went scrambling for a razor.” It turns out that the actress, singer, and mom of two wasn’t aware that the sheer panel was going to be so…revealing when she initially ordered the dress. This is a totally normal thing, if you’ve ever ordered something online and were surprised that what you received wasn’t exactly what you expected. Just a side note: This isn’t the first time Gwyneth has had issues with mesh.
We would think, though, that since one doesn’t simply order a red carpet dress off the web, the gown’s designer, Antonio Berardi, would have thought to warn that underpants were a no-no with this style. Additionally, in true Hollywood style, Gwyneth slipped on her wardrobe change just before hitting the carpet, apparently leaving her staff scrambling to make the best out of it.
Ellen did share our concern over the razor comment, noting, “You certainly don’t take care of yourself. It was just the side of your leg! What is going on with you?”
Not missing a beat, Gwyneth responds, “I work a ‘70s vibe, you know what I mean?”
Thankfully, the actress kept the rest of the specifics to herself, requesting a topic change. Instead of struggling with switching topics, Ellen just opted for a commercial break. Awkwarrrd…
