While the dress sparked mixed reaction online, Amy Poehler was a fan. "I can't stand next to her too long. She looks too good," the Parks and Recreation star joked to Seacrest.

Paltrow picked up an Emmy Award earlier this month for her guest-starring role on Glee, beating out Cloris Leachman (Raising Hope), Dot Marie Jones (Glee), Elizabeth Banks (30 Rock), Kristin Chenoweth (Glee) and Tina Fey (Saturday Night Live).
Twitter exploded after Paltrow hit the carpet at Sunday's show, which was broadcast live on Fox.
"I dream of Jeannie… I mean Gwyneth," joked Oprah's stylist and O magazine creative director Adam Glassman.
"MS PALTROW AS A BELLY DANCER?" he added.
