Antonio Berardi On Gwyneth Paltrow In THAT Dress: 'She Makes Things Look Iconic!'

Coming off the back of being rated the Most Beautiful Woman in the World by People magazine, Gwyneth Paltrow stepped out last night for the Iron Man 3 premiere in Hollywood last night, in a dress which proved exactly why she deserved her accolade. With sheer panels down both sides of the ankle grazing gown, Gwynnie drew blushes as it was immediately apparent she was going full-on commando.

So which designer was responsible for the partially see-thru red carpet winner? The answer is our very own Antonio Berardi, the British designer whose Sicilian background has inspired him to make frocks with a heavy dose of feminine va va voom.

So how did Berardi feel about Gwyneth working his dress on the red carpet? The designer tells us exclusively, 'Gwyneth manages to bridge the gap of glamour and modernity. She makes things look iconic!' Where did Mr Berardi get his inspiration from? 'The dress she is wearing is from my AW13 collection,' he tells us, 'and the architect Oscar Niemeyer is the inspiration – allowing me to create pieces that celebrate dramatic silhouettes, whilst in-keeping with my love for hourglass aesthetic.'

And what of the racy sheer panels? 'I adore the side panels in this dress – they make everything a suggestion; just a flash of a curve, and a hint of leg movement, embodying a sensuality without any vulgarity,' he explains.

Antonio Berardi has become quite the red carpet favourite with fans including Frieda Pinto, Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Richie. So does he design with the red carpet in mind? 'My dresses are not, on the whole, created with the red carpet in mind, although they do lend themselves perfectly! I really look to create pieces with a point of view, which embody my signature style whilst expressing modernity. I want my dresses to push boundaries, and I think that’s why they work for event dressing – they are not just another red carpet gown, there is always a twist and a hint of something more.'
