What would Gwyneth wear? If she were a superhero, that is.

“Probably something like this. I feel like this dress is pretty superhero-ish,” the actress said of the daring dress she wore to last night’s premiere of Iron Man 3 in L.A. “[It's] couture superhero. The cut on top reminds me of classic superhero, but it’s also sexy with the sheer parts. It is pulling double duty.”

Though the Antonio Berardi gown may not be the most practical uniform, judging by Gwyneth’s toned legs and derriere — which were in plain view thanks to well placed sheer panels on the side of her skirt — she’s definitely in superhero shape. Good news considering that, in the third installment of the Marvel movie franchise, she gets to try Tony Stark’s armor on for size.

“In the first two movies, Pepper is more of a damsel in distress. It was really nice to see her self-realize, become really strong, step into her power and do all the action,” said the actress, who plays Stark’s girl Friday. “I got to do a little butt kicking of my own, thank God.”

Speaking of style, what was with those lederhosen Robert Downey Jr. wore to the Iron Man 3 photo call in Munich earlier this month?

“I wore them in honor of my mom,” said the actor, who is known for his offbeat red carpet aesthetic. “It was her birthday while I was there and she’s of German descent.”

As for wife Susan, Downey said she’s more into his superhero look. “The missus likes it when I dress up [as Tony Stark],” he quipped.
