Get The Look For Less: Gwyneth Paltrow’s Statment Pink Oscars 2015 Dress
Gwyneth Paltrow stepped onto the 87th Annual Academy Awards red carpet in a statement pale pink dress.
Paltrow was wearing a couture inspired piece by Ralph & Russo, made of silk that included a gigantic flower on the shoulder. The monochromatic, one-shoulder dress was a gutsy move by the Oscar winner, who is known for her unique style risks. The gown was adapted from a look from the Spring/Summer2015 runway. The dress became one of the more controversial looks of the night with some people applauding the fashion choice and others were unimpressed, liking it to a bridesmaids dress and calling it “Dynasty Spring Formal.”

Paltrow was very eager to wear the custom creation, stating, “Pink is my favorite color,” which appears to be the case as she wore a similar shade back in 1999 when she won her Oscar for Best Actress, as Viola De Lesseps in Shakespeare in Love. Currently you can catch the 42-year-old in the film Mortdecai, starring Johnny Depp, Olivia Munn and Paul Bettany.
You can get this look, but without the dramatic shoulder flower at Nordstrom, in a similar hue. This draped one shoulder short-sleeve dress features a loose fitting sash at the waist and a more relaxed fit. This dress is more romantic and understated with still being “girly.” To add a little more charm to the look, add a set of garnet drop earrings that will make elevate the beauty of the dress and of your style.
