A-list actress Gwyneth Paltrow looked far from forty when she enjoyed the third leg of the festivities marking her milestone birthday in New York. Topping off her other events in Italy and London, Gywneth chose to celebrate in style her celebrity friends in the Big Apple at Italian restaurant Elio's in Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Radiant and joyous, the actress teamed her sleek high waisted black trousers on the night with a monochrome strapless top, showing off her svelte figure with sophistication, and finished off the look with simple black stilettos and a black jewel-encrusted clutch.
Not far behind her friend, singing sensation Beyonce stepped out of her customised black people carrier in an all-black ensemble of skinny jeans, knee-high boots and a black long-sleeved top.
Also having turned forty this year, best friend Cameron Diaz laughed and joked with her friends in a figure-hugging black dress with a contrasting nude clutch bag. Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig was also ready to party in her bodycon black skirt and shocking pink high heels.
Director veteran Steven Spielberg also joined in his god daughter's celebrations with wife Kate Capshaw. And of course, the party would not be complete without the attendance of Gwyneth's acting mother Blythe Danner, who bucked the all-black trend and wore a chic red and black short sleeved shift dress.
Rocker hubby Chris Martin did not join in the celebrations on this occassion, but was seen having intimate celebrations with his wife on the date of her birthday in Portofino, Italy.
