Gwyneth Paltrow Sheer DressFrank Micelotta/Invision/AP

Gwyneth Paltrow, world’s most Googled star? Between nabbing PEOPLE’s World’s Most Beautiful crown and the jaw-droppingly sheer dress she wore to the Iron Man 3 premiere, we’d guess she’s well on her way.

For Wednesday’s Audi-sponsored event, she selected an Antonio Berardi dress that left little to the imagination — about how intense her gym regimen must be or whether she was wearing any undergarments, as the 360° view gave more than a glimpse at the star’s ridiculous derrière.

Why’d she pick it? “You have to ask my stylist,” she said. “I think because it’s sexy. You’ve got all the sheer bits but it’s sort of ‘superheroes’ on top.”

And of course, it shows off the body part that trainer Tracy Anderson calls “my masterpiece,” adding “I’m the most proud of her butt, that’s for sure. Because that was a transformation.” And today, we can all appreciate the results of all that hard work.

Tell us: What do you think of Paltrow’s daring premiere dress?

It’s too bad “People” doesn’t offer an emoticon reaction showing an eye roll….

That may well be the ugliest dress I’ve ever seen.

She’s cute, but in no way the most beautiful woman.

I’m not sure why People would chose Gwyneth Paltrow as “Worlds Most Beautiful”. I think she’s a pompous, spoiled, celebutante who got where she is because of her parents.

I’m really sorry, but she’s NOT a woman I want my 5 year old to admire! People=epic fail!

Not True on

First of all People’s editors have not seen everyone in the world. She is not the most beautiful, she’s average, remove the war paint and she looks like everyone else.

People Magazine’s issue should be HollyWorld’s most “beautiful” The world is a very big place and although Gwyneth Paltrown is not unattractive she is not the most beautiful woman in the world. She is your typical long blond haired female. This is nothing about her that is unique or stands out. She does look good and obviously works hard however I doubt that her days are like most working women. I work hard to stay and shape by I certainly don’t have a trainer or cook (if needed). To each their own however I find her eating habits to be a little

People Magazine’s issue should be called Holly World’s most “beautiful” The word is a very big place and although Gwyneth Paltrow is not unattractive she is not the most beautiful woman in the world. She is your typical long blond haired female. There is nothing that stands out or is especially unique about her look. She does look good and obviously works at it however I believe that she probably has more time than most working women. Also, to each their own but I find her eating habits a little rigid and boring. I am not a fan of the dress although she can wear whatever she wants but I prefer things that are more flattering and sophisticated. Money doesn’t equal great taste. I also think that most people in this business to some degree are narcissistic

Glad to know that I am not the only person that thinks she’s average at best..She will nevrr be near as beautiful as her Mom..I don’t care for that dress, the colors don’t work for me..She seriously needs to eat a couple of cheeseburgers…

Gwyneth was the least beautiful on a cover that included the POS Boston bomber.
