Gwyneth Paltrow is still talking about the Met Gala.

Only now the Goop gal seems to have changed her tune about the glam event she openly dissed it last week.

After candidly telling the hosts of Australia's The Kyle and Jackie O Show that the annual gala "sucked" during her now infamous interview, and after saying she's "never going again," she's taken to her lifestyle site to write a rather glowing account of the annual fashion fete.

 "The Met Ball, at NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year's most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different," she gushed in today's Goop post. "The theme was ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture' and when the house of Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri asked me to join them, I was thrilled to see what they would create with my right fashion hand, Elizabeth Saltzman." 

The Iron Man 3 star then goes on to share pics from of various fittings of the pretty pink Valentino gown she wore, as well as shots of her getting all dolled up for the gala. We couldn't help but notice the martini—as in the drink that caused her loose lips during her radio interview!—amidst the various makeup brushes and hair products.

And though the final result wasn't very punk, Gwynnie nevertheless tries to convince us she's all about the edgy style.

"We got all inspired in the goop office about punk making a comeback through subtle influence and thus, we asked one of my absolute favorite websites, the most excellently curated SSENSE, to show us how we could work it into our spring/summer wardrobes," she writes. 

Um, really? Because we could have sworn you told the Aussie hosts you sat down with, "I think we're all a bit too old to dress up punk."

Pretty contradictory if you ask us. Could the Goop post have been a stab at a bit of damage control?
