Gwyneth Paltrow takes fashion advice from her daughter.

The 'Country Strong' star - who topped the best-dressed lists with her Tom Ford cape dress at Sunday night's (26.02.12) Oscars - admits seven-year-old Apple's opinion counts for a lot when it comes to dressing for the red carpet.

She said: ''My daughter loves a fashion moment. She weighs in very heavily.''

Talking about the unusual gown choice, Gwyneth - who also has son Moses, five, with her Coldplay husband Chris Martin - says she was inspired by a similar outfit worn by America's former First Lady, Jackie Onassis.

The 39-year-old actress told American talk show 'The Chew': ''I tried on one dress. That was the dress and I thought, 'it's a little different but it's sort of a throwback'.

''I saw a pic of Jackie O in a white dress with a cape and it's been a while since anyone's worn a cape, frankly, except for Superman.''

According to People Magazine, Jackie designed the ensemble in question herself for husband John F. Kennedy's inaugural ball in 1961.
