Michael Kors may have received the Lifetime Achievement Award last night at the CFDA Awards at New York City’s Lincoln Center, but he created the most buzz in the room with his date for the evening — a dazzling Gwyneth Paltrow clad in a sparkling one-shoulder black dress with sexy geometric cut outs made just for her. “Yes, we custom made the dress for Gwyneth tonight. One fitting,” Kors told PEOPLE. “My favorite thing is a woman who knows what works for her. Comfortable in her own skin. She wanted to be glamorous and comfortable.” And Paltrow looked not just comfy, but like she was having a great time as she ordered herself a martini with three olives at the bar. “I’ve known Gwyneth for a long time,” Kors told PEOPLE backstage after accepting his award. “She gets more and more beautiful. She’s a woman who can juggle everything and do it all beautifully, perform onstage and screen, a great mom, great wife, great business woman.. .. and she’s curious.” And did we mention glamorous in that gown? — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg; Reporting by Jeffrey Slonim
