Leighton Meester Country Strong
Gwyneth Paltrow Country Strong
Going for a playful, girlie look, Gossip Girl Leighton Meester was popping in a wow-some fashion forward SS11 ensemble in a flirty and floral Christian Dior minidress and vibrant pink Lanvin wedges. She added a pop of pink to her lips working the Spring Summer 11 trend for paintbox pouts and in a nod to the country theme of the movie, wore her luscious locks loose and wavy.
And not to be outdone by her co-star, Gwyneth Paltrow was picture perfect in a jaw-dropping Emilio Pucci floor-length ice-white gown with seductive side slashed criss-cross lacing. She added just a touch of frosting with a pretty gold cocktail ring by Sutra. Keeping to the minimalist look, Gwynnie wore her hair centre-parted and poker-straight.
Gwyneth plays fallen country music star Kelly Canter who with the help of a hot new songwriter played by Garrett Hedlund tries to resurrect her career. And who better to help Gwyn tune up for the role, than hubby Chris Martin!
Gwyn told press: 'He was so helpful, so sweet and encouraging, It's embarrassing to be playing in front of your husband, especially when he's in one of the world's most successful bands.'
And her musical career doesn't just end with Country Strong. Having received rave reviews for her role as substitute teacher in Glee, it's been announced that she is to reprise the role and start filming next year.
Could this be the start of a new musical Gwyneth! We hope so.
