Gwyneth Paltrow, 2002
In contrast to the pretty pink ballgown in which she won her 1999 Academy Award, Gwyneth Paltrow
chose an sheer black Alexander McQueen
top, gathered taffeta skirt and stiletto boots. Although she received lots of criticism for the style switch-up, the designer was pleased with the effect. "She looked incredible," he said of the look, which was altered from a long-sleeved fall 2002 runway design.
