It's what you might call having a wacky moment.
As she collected her daughter from nursery, Gwyneth Paltrow clearly decided to take a leaf out of Michael Jackson's book. 'Wacko Jacko' is known for covering his children's faces with veils in public, but the Hollywood actress went one step further, hiding both herself and three-year-old Apple under a long black shawl.
But if Gwyneth, 34, hoped to avoid attracting attention as they left the building in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, she failed. One parent said: "It was really odd. She couldn't see where she was going because the shawl was so tightly wrapped around their heads. They were actually drawing more attention to themselves."
Gwyneth's husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin, chose a more down-to-earth disguise for the nursery collection trip, wearing a dark blue hoodie and shades.
Michael Jackson regularly masks his children - Prince Michael, Paris and Prince Michael II - with veils. The singer claims that he has to disguise their faces as a security measure because he fears they could be a target for kidnappers.
