Gwyneth Paltrow: 'Met Ball was not fun'

May 08, 2013 | 8:34pm EDT

Gwyneth Paltrow has risked the wrath of the organisers of the annual Costume Institute Gala after declaring this year's (13) glitzy event "too crowded and un-fun". A host of A-list stars including Sarah Jessica Parker, Madonna and Nicole Richie were guests at fashion's biggest night, also known as the Met Ball, but the Iron Man beauty admits the high-profile affair wasn't her idea of a good time. She is quoted as telling USA Today, "I'm never going again. It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all." Paltrow ended up on critics' worst dressed lists after wearing a pretty pink Valentino Haute Couture gown to the punk-themed event, but she has defended her outfit choice to Vogue magazine, insisting, "I guess it's punk in that I've gone just totally classic on a punk night."
