We have mixed feelings about Gwyneth Paltrow (should we hate her because she’s beautiful, and talented, and rich, and has an incomparably awesome life and we don’t?), so it follows that we have mixed feelings about the sparkly green dress she wore when she went to the BAMBI awards last night.
The BAMBIs are Germany’s answer to the Emmy awards, recognizing international excellence in being on or helping to create television for a living. For the occasion, Paltrow slipped into an art deco dress that looks as if it were created using the whole of NATO’s strategic reserve of kelly green sequins. If that plunging neckline hadn’t been so plunging, this dress alone probably would have sent the entire green sequin market into economic shock.
Yet for all the green sequins, we really admire the sparkly vivaciousness of this dress — to say nothing of the way it fits her frame. We’re a little more concerned about that chunky Ericson Beamon-looking diamond necklace of hers, though. Visually, it’s chopping her head off her body. And that’s never cute. (Also never cute? Whatever Justin Bieber was wearing at the BAMBIs. You’ll see what we mean in a sec.)
But that’s just what we think. Take a look at the outfit below and tell us what you think.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
