Gwyneth Paltrow bares her assets on the red carpet

London: Gwyneth Paltrow is known for her elegant but safe fashion choices on the red carpet but the actress decided to spice up things by opting for a daring white backless dress, which left little to the imagination.

Paltrow looked demure and stylish as she arrived in a white floor-length Emilio Pucci gown for the premiere of her movie `Country Strong`.

But as she turned around, most of her back, hips and legs were on display in the dress, which was slashed right down over her hips, held together only with bits of criss-crossing tie, the Daily Mail reported.

The slit then continued right down her leg, giving onlookers quite an eyeful reminding Elizabeth Hurley`s famous black Versace outfit in 1994, which was held together by golden safety pins.

The 38-year-old actress teamed the white dress with some matching criss cross black shoes.

Paltrow was joined on the red carpet by her `Country Strong` co-star Leighton Meester, Garrett Hedlund and Tim McGraw.

Hedlund plays a rising country singer in the movie, who teams up with Paltrow`s fallen star Kelly Canter and helps her make a comeback while ensuring his own fame along the way.

But their partnership ends up creating romantic complications.
