Gwyneth Paltrow  In Alexander McQueen - Gene Siskel Film Center Gala Honoring Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow was the honoured guest at the Gene Siskel Film Center Gala, as she received the Renaissance Award last night in Chicago, Illinois.

For the occasion, the actress wore a creamy ivory Alexander McQueen Fall 2013 dress that wasn’t nearly as leggy as some of her recent entrances.

The strictly structured, cap-sleeve bodice gave way to a looser pleated tennis skirt, while the frock was elevated by a regal brocade, tone-on-tone print.

She added some sparkle to the demure ensemble with two rows of Pomellato’s signature supersize link-chain bracelets along with shiny gold peep-toe pumps.

Her centre-parted, straight hairstyle, which we know all too well, appeared again here. With the high collar of this dress, a swept-back updo couldn’t have hurt.

Do you like Gwynnie’s look, or are you too distracted by her déjà-vu ‘do.
