Gwyneth Paltrow honoured her title of best-dressed woman in the world. The actress looked classy and stylish in a figure hugging white dress at a special event she co-hosted in London's Mayfair area.

The 39-year-old actress held the Obama Victory fundraising dinner at Mark's Club along with fashion editor Anna Wintour and respected fashion designer Tom Ford.

Last week Gwyneth was honoured by People magazine for being their best-dressed woman in 2012 for her "unexpected, yet chic looks".

The wife of Coldplay front man Chris Martin showed exactly why she was awarded the title with her seemingly effortless yet sexy ensemble for her event.

Also in attendance was Gwyneth's close friend actress Cameron Diaz who wowed in a chic and fashion forward jumpsuit to the dinner party.

The rest of the guest list read like a who's who in the fashion world with industry insiders including Natalie Massenet, founder of Net-a-Porter and new chair of the British Fashion Council in attendance.

Also joining the impeccably stylish crowd was British hit television series Downton Abbey's star Elizabeth McGovern and Elizabeth Saltzman, international social editor of Vanity Fair.

Gwyneth has had a string of hits in the style stakes recently. She was announced as the new face of Max Factor cosmetics last week and appears as the October cover star of In Style fashion magazine. In the accompanying issue Gwyneth spoke about how hard she works to achieve her seemingly perfect public image. The star explained how she is driven by a desire to correct her flaws she sees in herself.

“I’m hard on myself, so I’m working on shifting perspective toward self-acceptance, with all my flaws and weaknesses," she said. "The positive thing that drives me is a curiosity and momentum. The negative is a need to validate myself or feel special.”
