The apple does not fall far from the tree.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s 18-year-old daughter tried out one of her famous mom’s most controversial red carpet looks in recent times: the translucent black Alexander McQueen dress she wore to the 2002 Oscars.
After a fan asked Paltrow if her oldest child had access to her fashion archives, the “Shakespeare in Love” actress shared a photo of her modeling a translucent McQueen design in Apple’s massive walk-in closet.
The 50-year-old Academy Award winner spoke at length about the criticism of the Goth dress, which is considered her biggest fashion mistake; at the time it was seen as “modest” and “fashion disaster”.
“Everybody really hated [it]”Life in Look” video for Vogue in 2021 about looks, but I think it’s kind of silly,” Paltrow said.
“I had a weird hangover about it for a while because people were really critical of it. I think it was very Gothic back then… very difficult. I think it shocked people. But I like it.”
However, in the 2013 Goop Q&A, Paltrow admitted she had “a few issues” with the look.

“I still love the dress but I should have worn a bra and had simple beachy hair and less makeup,” she wrote.
“Then, it would work the way I wanted – a bit of a bummer at the Oscars.”
With her smooth ponytails and minimal appeal, Apple was perhaps making up for her mother’s style mistakes.
