Gwyneth Paltrow Swaps Rock For Pop Without Husband

She’s an Oscar winning film star and married to a Grammy award winning rock star but Gwyneth Paltrow harbours a secret love of cheesey pop.

Very spotted the clean-living Gwyneth shaking her body and dancing provocatively at Take That singer Gary Barlow’s 40th birthday in London.

And to add to the pop vibe, the wife of Coldplay’s Chris Martin was hanging out with Girls Aloud singer Kimberly Walsh. Talk about Something Kinda Oooh! different for the mum of two.

Gwyneth dressed for the gig at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire perfectly with a dress that was sexy but not too painful to wear to a sweaty gig.

After all, a girl has to be comfortable if she’s going to jump up dancing. It should be the music that goes pop – not her outfit!

Alesha Dixon and Claudia Schiffer were a couple of other famous faces in the audience as Gary performed Take That’s best hits with his bandmates  Jason Orange, Howard Donald and Mark Owen.

Bizarrely, Robbie Williams, who has only just rejoined the band, missed Gary’s birthday and sent a video message instead.

Given that Robbie also missed celebrating New Year in Barbados with the rest of the band, the future is not looking good for the band as a five piece.

They may be committed to a massive tour this year, but music insiders predict that Robbie will leave as soon as it’s over.

Some sources say this is because he wants to be a father now he is happily settled with wife Ayda Field, but others suggest he was surpised how different it is to work in a band and compromise rather than do solo songs.

But talking of flying solo, we’re surprised Chris Martin let Gwyneth go out alone to Gary’s gig as she looks so stunning.

There are a lot of new ways to wear brown this season. One of the top three is the new Holly Willoughby mesh insert shift dress – perfectly fitted so it slims down all unwanted lumps and bumps.

Check out the new South linen pencil dress, which has a similar flattering shape in a more chocolate colour

And if you want some more sparkle for a night out, then you’ll love the new South embellished ruched side tunic

Complete the Gwyneth look with a necklace like the Evoke 9ct gold teardrop pendant . You can now get this Hollywood look, which is 9ct gold, for just £65!

Finish with some dancing shoes like the Miss KG Hamilton jewelled platform shoes

It’s good seeing Gwyneth getting out more! Wonder if she’ll take her husband next time?
