Sure, Angie's leg and Ryan Seacrest's ashy tuxedo may have eclipsed the red carpet coverage of Gwyneth Paltrow's flowing white cape at the Academy Awards, however now that the dust has settled in the days since, we can turn focus back to the more important things -- Why the cape, Gwen? 

"I saw a pic of Jackie O in a white dress with a cape and it's been a while since anyone's worn a cape except for Superman," reveals Paltrow on tomorrow's episode of The Chew. "I tried on one dress. That was the dress and I thought, 'it's a little different but it's sort of a throwback.' "
