Gwyneth Paltrow talks Oscars style

Gwyneth Paltrow's Oscars dress was inspired by former First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

The Hollywood star turned up on the 84th Academy Awards red carpet wearing a stunning white Tom Ford gown that came complete with a detachable cape. She dazzled in the unusual ensemble and completed the look with minimal accessories.

Gwyneth Paltrow chose the dress after garnering inspiration from Jackie.

"I tried on one dress. That was the dress and I thought, 'It's a little different but it's sort of a throwback,'" she said during a taping of The Chew on Thursday.

"I saw a picture of Jackie O in a white dress with a cape and it's been a while since anyone's worn a cape, frankly, except for Superman."

Gwyneth is possibly referring to the white ensemble Jackie designed herself for John F. Kennedy's inaugural ball in 1961.

Gwyneth says the removable cape was the idea of Ford. However the mother-of-two's seven-year-old daughter Apple did have a say too.

"My daughter loves a fashion moment," she said. "She weighs in very heavily."

The episode airs in the US tonight on ABC.
