Gwyneth Paltrow - Gwyneth Paltrow's 'maje' red carpet wear

Gwyneth Paltrow thinks she looks ''maje'' on the red carpet.

The 'Iron Man 3' actress is delighted with her recent formal looks, which she credits to her stylist Elizabeth Saltzman.

She said: ''I think they are all pretty maje. I can say this because I have just about nothing to do with it.

''Standouts for me are the pink Prada dress at the 2011 Venice Film Festival, and of course the white Tom Ford from the Oscars last year.''

However, the blonde beauty admits she hasn't always got it right, recalling two ''glaring'' fashion faux pas she has made in the past.

Of a diaphanous silvery Calvin Klein dress that she wore to the 2000 Academy Awards, she said: ''It's an OK dress, but not Oscars material.

''I chose it because I wanted to disappear that year.''

And of her 2002 gothic black Alexander McQueen design with a sheer bodice, she admitted: ''There were a few issues. I still love the dress itself, but I should have worn a bra and I should have just had simple beachy hair and less makeup. Then, it would have worked as I wanted it to - a little bit of punk at the Oscars.''

Gwyneth - who has children Apple, eight, and six-year-old Moses with husband Chris Martin - looks to her famous friends for inspiration for her day-to-day style.

She explained in her Goop newsletter: ''I am most inspired by women friends who are incredibly stylish in their own way. Stella McCartney always looks amazing - she has a way of making you covet her sweatpants and T-shirt, she just wears clothes so well.

''I love Rashida Jones' hot nerd vibe and Beyoncé's playfulness in trying different trends. I love Cameron Diaz's ability to rock silver nails and layer tons of tiny gold jewellery. I am also very inspired by street style in London where I have lived pretty much for 10 years.''
