Michael Kors on Date Gwyneth Paltrow: "More and More Beautiful"

Michael Kors may have received the Lifetime Achievement Award last night at the CFDA Awards at New York City’s Lincoln Center, but he created the most buzz in the room with his date for the evening — a dazzling Gwyneth Paltrow clad in a sparkling one-shoulder black dress with sexy geometric cut outs made just for her. “Yes, we custom made the dress for Gwyneth tonight. One fitting,” Kors told PEOPLE. “My favorite thing is a woman who knows what works for her. Comfortable in her own skin. She wanted to be glamorous and comfortable.” And Paltrow looked not just comfy, but like she was having a great time as she ordered herself a martini with three olives at the bar. “I’ve known Gwyneth for a long time,” Kors told PEOPLE backstage after accepting his award. “She gets more and more beautiful. She’s a woman who can juggle everything and do it all beautifully, perform onstage and screen, a great mom, great wife, great business woman.. .. and she’s curious.” And did we mention glamorous in that gown? — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg; Reporting by Jeffrey Slonim

She is no beauty and is very full of herself. A mediocre actress with mediocre looks. Big deal.

Anyone who’s ever seen “Shakespeare in Love” and “Proof” would never say that she’s a mediocre actress. She’s amazing. But I’m not wild about the dress. Those horizontal lines aren’t flattering.

That’s all very nice to hear, congrats to Michael Kors on his Award!

Mr. Kors: You obviously need glasses. She’s not beautiful. She’s an average looking girl, and your dress, by the way, is a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being great.

Gwyneth doesn’t strike me as confident in her own skin. She may be “curious” but I think that’s because she’s always trying to reinvent herself.
She just comes off as neurotic.

I agree with Donna. But I do like MK.

sorry but michael kors is a very average designer as is Gwyneth as an actress. She is skinny and very blond but even with good looks there is an insecurity and an ugliness about her in her website and her acting.

I’m sure she is a great mom and has a lovely life but she didn’t to stop preaching to others and get some humility.

I like her, she offers some cool tips, etc. on her GOOP site, I think she’s a classy chick who values her privacy and is not a media ho, and she does look very pretty in the dress.
