We took a week off from major awards shows, but the latest Most Loved Look could have easily appeared on the red carpet of the Oscars or Golden Globes. Gwyneth Paltrow ditched her usual plunging necklines for a jaw-dropping Prada gown, and it paid off, landing her at the top of the Best Dressed list.

We agree with the 82 percent of readers who showed their love for this sequined pink dress, worn to the Golden Cinema Awards in Berlin, Germany. The shimmering material looks as if it were poured on her body, showing off every curve in the most flattering way. And in a dress that stunning, who needs accessories? Gwyneth wisely ditched any statement necklaces or bracelets, instead opting for minimal makeup and loose curls. In a word: perfection.

Following closely behind was Brooklyn Decker, who stepped out at the NFL Honors event in N.Y.C. in a crystal-embellished pencil skirt that we need in our closets ASAP. She paired it with a basic silk blouse and black pumps, plus some side-swept waves we’ll definitely be adding to our “Hair Inspiration” board on Pinterest.

Tell us: Is this one of your all-time favorite Gwyneth gowns? Or are you loving Brooklyn’s look more?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Not a Paltrow lover, but the dress is nice.

I actually think this looks horrible on her and doesn’t suit her at all.

lucee on

that looks great; the dress she had on when she won the Oscar is one of the worst-ever dresses on any celebrity.

Seabot on

I think it’s really boring.

Alice on

The dress is as boring as she

Eli on

I like the dress but as with a lot of her clothes, the bodice doesn’t fit properly. I know she has access to a tailor so there is no reason for that. It happens all the time with her. See also her pink Oscar gown and that unflattering Goth Oscar gown.

Love, love, LOVE!

Great dress

Carolyn on

The dress is ok, but what’s with this hairstyle that seems rampant on everyone? Parted in the middle with sort of corkscrew curls cascading down? Now that’s boring!
