All eyes were on Gwyneth Paltrow as she made her first high-profile appearance since announcing her split from estranged husband Chris Martin.
The actress, who revealed on her lifestyle website Goop that she and Chris were “consciously uncoupling”, had travelled to Hong Kong to promote her online company. The blonde beauty also took the opportunity to slam reports that Goop was in financial trouble.
“Sheer” was the fashion look of the day, as Gwyneth opted for two dresses with transparent panels. Taking to the stage to deliver her speech, the Oscar-winning actress wore a charcoal, long-sleeved frock that featured lace detailing.

Gwyneth looked particularly radiant as she showed off her svelte figure and tanned legs, and completed her look with bright blue pointed stilettos. The mother-of-two seemed confident and completely at ease as she shrugged off rumours that her company was £714,000 in debt.
“Those numbers are based on filings from a couple of years ago, so you shouldn’t believe everything you read,” said Gwyneth, speaking at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
“We’re on the [verge] of a lot of changes at the website right now and we have some really exciting announcements coming up.”

As Gwyneth happily posed for photographs with organisers of the event, the press were quick to note that the Shakespeare in Love actress was not wearing her wedding band. She did however wear a large diamond ring on her right hand.

Gwyneth changed into her second outfit of the day, swapping her grey frock for a racier number. The blonde bombshell turned heads in her flapper-style, lacy black dress, which she paired with silver dangly earrings and black strappy sandals.

Earlier this week Seb Bishop, CEO of Goop, announced that he was resigning, following the news that the company would move from London to Gwyneth’s native Los Angeles.
Unsurprisingly, Gwyneth sidestepped questions about her personal life and instead spoke solely to promote her website and cookbook It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great. She did describe her lifestyle as “quiet and domestic” when responding to a question about Goop. “I really love my office job,” she said. “I started Goop because I had a lot of creativity and I wasn’t doing as many films.”
