too crowded and un-fun

Gwyneth Paltrow has heaped praise on the Costume Institute Gala in New York just days after slamming the event in several interviews.

The Shakespeare In Love star was left unimpressed by fashion's biggest night, also known as the Met Ball, branding this month's (May13) gala "too crowded" and "un-fun".

The Oscar-winner also blasted the glamorous event's punk theme during a radio interview, insisting that many of the A-listers present were "a bit old to be trying to dress punk" - but she's now backtracked on her comments.

In a post on her lifestyle blog, Paltrow praised the event's "incredible fashion" and hailed the bash as the highlight of the style calendar, writing, "The Met Ball, at NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year's most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different".
