Gwyneth Paltrow pretty in pink

Silver was the in-colour in Cannes but Gwyneth Paltrow looked pretty in pink at the National Movie Awards in London, making us think there is a new option for summer going out dresses.

Gwynnie turned up to the event at London’s Royal Festival Hall alone – no sign of her Coldplay musician husband Chris Martin. Maybe he was babysitting their two children Apple and Moses?

There are constant reports that the Oscar winning actress and her husband are on the verge of splitting up, but Gwyneth seemed as if she didn’t have a care in the world as she presented Tom Cruise with the Screen Icon award.

If there were awards for dresses, we would vote for the Iron Man 2 actress for the way she’s picked the perfect colour and shape for her complexion and figure.

For blondes like Gwyneth there’s a danger of appearing like a Barbie in pink, but you can choose from a wide range of pinks at Very – from light rose to dark cerise.

Pick one in a tight bodycon style, a floaty chiffon dress or a cut-out, cleaving enhancing number.

Here are three of our favourites at Very:

(1) Vila Catwalk Dress

(2) Holly Willoughby strap detail pencil dress

(3) Fuse by Fuse by Preen knot detail pencil dress

When his wife looks so pretty, why does Chris insist on shying away from Red carpet events? You’d have thought he’d be proud to have Gwyneth on his arm!

She turned up to the after-party at Claridges hotel, but only stayed for 30 minutes – barely enough time to eat one of the yellow fin tuna, battered prawn or chicken skewer canapes let alone one of the coconut macaroon desert canapes.

That meant more for us!
