Anyone who is someone in Hollywood glammed up on Saturday night for Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk's black-tie engagement party - which was actually rumoured to be a secret wedding.

The lady of the hour arrived at the Los Angeles Theater in a stunning floor-length maroon gown that flashed a little of the 45-year-old's taut midriff. Her producer partner Brad, 46, arrived separately in a white tux.

The hoarding outside the theatre was emblazoned with 'GP loves BF' on one side, with 'BF loves GP' on the other.

Gwyneth previously opened up about her upcoming nuptials to Brad who she met on the set of TV show Glee, saying she was excited to plan her wedding.

"I'm excited about everything!" she told People.

"I've never had a wedding before. [Gwyneth and ex-husband Chris Martin eloped in 2003.] So even though I'm 45, I sort of feel like a 21-year-old."

The couple are yet to confirm if they married at their glamorous party.
