The rail thin divas both turned heads with their slender figures and Paltrow shared a photo on twitter with the caption: “Say whaaat?”
“I wanted something a little bit like Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface,” the much-thinner singer said of her racy ensemble, which featured a high slit and exposed her bare back.
Paltrow, who normally attends the show with her bff Beyonce (who was a no show show this year along with her hubby Jay-z) was on-hand to introduce Adele’s performance of “Rolling in the Deep” and the actress’ gown was designed by Stella McCartney and included cut-out details and a gold belt.

The “We Found Love” singer, 23, completed her look with matching gold accessories, including a diamond and gold snake armlet and triangle earrings from Neil Lane, Jacquie Aiche body necklaces and a Jimmy Choo clutch.
