National Movie Awards: Gwyneth’s Black Dress

Gwyneth Paltrow is smiling because she looked simply sensational at The National Movie Awards in London.

She may not have won one of the prestigious awards but she won the approval of all the ladies in the audience in a stunning v-neck black dress. Most people had severe dress envy.

Here’s a close look at the gorgeous Gwyneth in all her finery.

We’ll soon be able to see the actress on the red carpet in more of a promotional role as Very can reveal that the last movie she shot is due for release at the end of the summer.

Called Contagion, it’s an action-thriller centred on the thereat posed by a deadly disease.

Bourne Identity King Matt Damon stars alongside Gwyneth, so you can guarantee intense drama – plus it’s got an appearance from Oscar winner Marion Cotillard. How can one movie have so many beautiful people in it?

But at the NMAs at London’s Wembley arena, it was Gwyneth’s night. She upstaged the host of the night, Daybreak’s Christine Bleakely, and she got even more applause than the teenage girls’ favourite group JLS!

If you’ve got a special summer occasion coming up then you need to take inspiration from the Iron Man actress to make an entrance.

Fortuantely Very.co.uk has some equally stunning v-neck dresses so everyone can follow Gwyneth’s style lead.

Black is always a beautiful colour for a formal occasion as it’s so slimming but you need some added detail like the v-neck to stand out from the crowd. There are so many bandeau dresses and prom dresses around right now that going back to a classic v-neck will make it look as if you’ve made an effort.

Try the gorgeous Holly Willoughby cross back fishtail dress for a v-neck dress that oozes class and elegance

Or the Joe Browns print dress is a great black dress for summer with it’s plunging v-neck and flower detail on the skirt

A v-neck maxi dress is equally lovely. Check out the stunning South drape maxi halter dress

Finish with some summer sandals to lengthen your legs and make the look more interesting, especially if you go for the dramatic but lovely Lipsy platform strappy tie sandals

As well as her movie roles, the hard-working mother of two is to record some more cameos in the hit TV show Glee. Can’t wait!
