  • Gwyneth Paltrow's latest premiere look – leather shorts!

    Gwyneth Paltrow was obviously in a brave fashion mood yesterday, stepping out for her latest premiere in a pair of leather shorts.

    A far cry from the star’s red carpet style of old – think that ultra-girly candy pink Ralph Lauren Oscar gown – she arrived at the Two Lovers premiere last night in high-waisted leather shorts, a gold lamé top, fitted black blazer and dove grey lace-up ankle boots.

    Clearly either unaware, or unbothered by the style bashing Keira Knightley received yesterday for her attempt at fashion-forward style on the red carpet, perhaps Paltrow was trying to steal the spotlight from her dishevelled co-star Joaquin Phoenix?

    Phoenix, who has been conspicuously absent from the film’s promotional trail, infamously announced he was quitting the film industry last year, to start a career as a rapper.

    And though he made a rare return to the Hollywood scene last night, all eyes were firmly on Paltrow (and those statement shorts!).

    We’re not convinced by this latest style incarnation, but let us know your thoughts on Gwynnie’s unusual premiere look in the comments box below.
