Gwyneth Paltrow finds ‘perfect’ dress

Gwyneth Paltrow revealed designer Matthew Williamson has created the "perfect happy" dress of the year.

The actress shared her personal runway edit from the collections shown during the recent Fashion Weeks.

The 40-year-old star describes which designers have inspired her this season.

She also chose a creation by Matthew Williamson as her ultimate wardrobe item for the coming year.

"Matthew Williamson's black rose print dress is the perfect happy year-round office/meeting dress," Gwyneth shared on goop.

"I feel inspired when I see innovation in shape, lines and tailoring, making me see clothes in a fresh way. For example, the proportions of the dresses at Preen this season are very forward, while Proenza Schouler has a whole new take on the wrap dress, and Matthew Williamson brings new, bold and appealing printed fabrics."

Gwyneth says her friends inspire her fashions on a day-to-day basis. She named British designer Stella McCartney and actress Cameron Diaz amongst those she admires.

"I am most inspired by women friends who are incredibly stylish in their own way. Stella McCartney always looks amazing. She has a way of making you covet her sweatpants and T-shirt, she just wears clothes so well. I love Rashida Jones' hot nerd vibe and Beyoncé's playfulness in trying different trends. I love Cameron Diaz's ability to rock silver nails and layer tons of tiny gold jewellery," she gushed. "I am also very inspired by street style in London where I have lived pretty much for ten years."

The actress admitted she's suffered a few wardrobe fails in the past. Gwyneth says two looks she's sported to the Oscars were particularly cringe-worthy.

"Well, I started being photographed in the 90's so of course there are a few glaring ones. Two that come to mind are looks I wore to the Oscars in 2000 and 2002. The first is the Calvin Klein. It's an okay dress but not Oscars material. I chose it because I wanted to disappear that year," she confessed. "Also, the goth Alexander McQueen I wore a few years later. There were a few issues; I still love the dress itself but I should have worn a bra and I should have just had simple beachy hair and less make-up. Then, it would have worked as I wanted it to - a little bit of punk at the Oscars."
