Gwyneth Paltrow Makes Red Carpet Comeback At The Met Gala 2017 Despite Previously Slating The Event

It’s been four years since Gwyneth Paltrow walked the Met Gala red carpet.

And despite previously slamming the event, saying it was ‘un-fun’, the 44-year old is back.

Gracing the red carpet at the annual fundraising gala last night, Gwyneth was all smiles arriving at the event.

In an interview with USA Today in 2013, the foodie deemed it ‘too crowded’.

She also said that ‘she was boiling’, and ‘did not enjoy it at all’.

But the blonde actress, who won an Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love, didn’t stop there.

Talking to Australian show KIIS, Paltrow said,

[It] sucked. It seems like it’s the best thing in the world, you always think, ‘Oh my god, it’s gonna be so glamorous and amazing and you’re going to see all these people’ and then you get there and it’s so hot and it’s so crowded and everyone’s pushing you.

Yet it seems Gwyneth has had a change of heart, stepping out in a Calvin Klein dress at the 2017 bash.

Her lifestyle company, GOOP, has recently teamed up with Anna Wintour – the event chair – and Condé Nast.

Paltrow and Wintour are consequently launching a quarterly edition of Goop magazine as of September.

So it seems she’s putting her differing opinions of the Met Gala aside and getting on board with all the fun.


Her custom Calvin Klein gown from Monday night’s event pays homage to Gwyneth’s first ever Met Gala appearance.

The Glee actress teased a Met Gala comeback on her Instagram recently.

Posting a throwback photo of her on the red carpet at the 1995 event, Paltrow hinted at her highly-anticipated return, saying,

Wintour, Vogue‘s editor, has said of Paltrow,

‘I’ve long known Gwyneth to have wonderful taste and vision — but with Goop she has built something remarkable, a thoroughly modern take on how we live today.

This year’s exclusive event held the theme ‘Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between’.

It celebrated the work of Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo.
