Actress Gwyneth Paltrow deliberately refused to conform to celebrity party expectations recently, by showing up at fashion designer Stella Mccartney's party wearing barely any make-up.

The SLIDING DOORS star arrived at the star-studded bash looking less than glamorous, to prove busy mothers can still look good without overdoing it.

She says, "The other night, I had to go to a Stella McCartney party. Stella was naughty and said, 'Yeah there's going to be a couple of photographers there.'

"So I arrived and there was a bigger press line than for the premiere of my new movie PROOF.

"I didn't have any hair and make-up, I'd just done it myself - some concealer, tinted moisturiser, blusher, mascara and that was it."
