Her husband Chris Martin was headlining the Emirates Stadium in London with Coldplay but Gwyneth Paltrow flew to Paris to support their close pal Jay-Z on his Watch The Throne world tour yesterday.
The 39-year-old actress showed off her enviably long legs, encased in short red shorts as she stepped out of her chauffeur driven people carrier to see Jay-Z perform with Kanye West at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy.
Gwyneth, who also wore a black blazer, left her long blonde hair loose and sported dark eye make-up as she made her way into the venue.

Paltrow attended the concert with Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce Knowles and her Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland.
Former X Factor judge Kelly sported a dark beige top and seemed to be wearing one of the many wigs she is famous for as her hair appeared longer than usual.
Kelly was in good spirits, waving to gathered fans and photographers and was clearly looking forward to a girlie night out.

The three women were spotted singing along with a proud Beyonce cheering on her husband. One person who was noticeably absent was Kanye’s girlfriend Kim Kardashian, who attended the London shows but has now returned to Los Angeles.
Gwyneth, who ditched the blazer and tied up her hair once inside and 35-year-old Chris are good friends with the hip-hop superstar and his wife so it is understandable that the actress chose to represent the Paltrow/Martin family while her spouse is otherwise engaged.

Justin Bieber and Spike Lee also attended last night’s gig while producer Hit-Boy crowd surfed and became the second guest to ever to join Jay-Z and Kanye on stage on this tour, following in the footsteps of Rihanna.
Beyonce missed the London shows last month as she was preparing for her first live performance since giving birth to the couple’s daughter Blue-Ivy in January but jetted in for the Paris concerts.

Paltrow has been extremely supportive of the Watch The Throne tour, even taking her children Apple, eight, and Moses, six, along to see their ‘Uncle Jay’ perform at London’s O2 arena.
