Gwyneth Paltrow Sports Questionable Jumpsuit For Book Signing (PHOTO)


Gwyneth Paltrow may consider herself a style guru, but she missed the mark with this one.

The 40-year-old "Iron Man" actress wore a questionable jumpsuit to a book signing at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on April 3 -- and while the all-white ensemble looked OK from the front, from the back it turned into a baggy, unflattering mess.

Paltrow paired the outfit -- which featured some rather odd winged shoulders and a sash -- with tortoiseshell sunglasses, black gladiator sandals, and of course, two bottles of (carb-free!) Smartwater.

The actress-turned-author, who was signing copies of her new cookbook "It’s All Good" for her fans, has been on the back-end of criticism lately over her high-maintenance lifestyle.

First, there was public outrage over the claim that she makes her kids follow a low-carb diet; then criticism over her blog Goop's 'must-have items for spring,' which collectively cost over $458,000.

We don't know how much Paltrow paid for this particular outfit, but we can assume it wasn't cheap. Check out the photo below and tell us what you think!
