Even paragon of perfection Gwyneth Paltrow makes red carpet fashion mistakes. And, refreshingly, isn't afraid to admit them, in her own newsletter no less.

In the latest issue of GOOP, Paltrow interviewed Moda Operandi's Lauren Santo Domingo (who is probably the GOOPiest person alive after Gwynnie), Indre Rockefeller and Taylor Tomasi-Hill about their background, style inspiration and runway favorites. In turn, they asked her a few questions, including if she's made any public fashion faux pas.

She answered honestly:

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. 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 makeup. Then, it would have worked as I wanted it to - a little bit of punk at the Oscars.

We can't disagree with her McQueen critique, but would the dress have been as memorable without the saggy nips? And hmm, why did Gwynnie want to disappear in 2000? Perhaps her on-off relationship with Ben Affleck was on the rocks?

We also wonder if that "punk" McQueen dress will in any way feature in the Met's upcoming “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibit, which Moda Operandi just happens to be co-sponsoring.

Regardless, we're all for this trend of self-deprecating honesty in Hollywood lately.
