Gwyneth Paltrow has worn some interesting outfits in the past (anyone remember this little number from the 2002 Oscars? Or more recently, how about this floral ensemble?)

But most recently, the dress she wore to the Iron Man 3 premiere in Hollywood, California last week has us scratching our heads.

The gorgeous actress, who was recently named People’s “Most Beautiful Woman”, wore a long, flowing,  colour-blocked dress by designer Antonio Berardi. While the oddly-shaped sleeves weren’t exactly flattering, they weren’t what really got people talking. The real attention-grabber? The sheer panels that left little to the imagination.

“Oh brother,” Gwyneth laughed when describing the dress on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I think there’s a lot of questions,” DeGeneres said. “And the question to me is…”

“Why is your ass hanging out?” Paltrow finished.

Well, you said it, not us.

Apparently she had a bit of a ‘disaster’ moments before hitting the red carpet.

“Let’s just say everybody went scrambling for a razor. So I went from being the ‘Most Beautiful’ to the most humiliated,” she jokes.

But in all honesty, despite the weird dress, how smoking does 40-year-old Paltrow look?  If we had legs like that we’d probably be rocking a sheer dress, too.
