Many consider it an honor to be invited to the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, but after this year's Met gala, there's one celebrity you can expect won't be on the coveted guest list next year -- Gwyneth Paltrow. 

The 40-year-old Academy Award-winning actress said her experience at Monday night's star-studded event in New York City was nothing short of terrible and said in USA Today on Wednesday that she won't be attending the ball next year.

"I'm never going again," Paltrow said. "It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all."

While the actress didn't enjoy her time at the ball, she did confess to admiring fellow celebrities' fashion choices; the gala's guests had the option of wearing punk-inspired pieces this year in honor of the museum's "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition. Paltrow's choice for best dressed -- former Victoria's Secret angel Miranda Kerr.

"She was wearing a black Michael Kors dress that was sort of like a sparkling bandeau and her whole stomach was showing … It was really beautiful. It was a little punk-y," Paltrow told Entertainment Weekly.

Paltrow didn't exactly stick to the evening's dress code, opting instead for a dark pink, floor-length Valentino gown.

Last month, Paltrow was named the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" by People magazine. Later, she told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that she thought the publication was playing a joke on her.

"My publicist of like 22 years, Stephen Huvane, sent me an email and honestly I was like this is a joke," Paltrow recalled. "I reread it three times. I was like oh, he sent to this to the wrong client. Like there's no way."

Earlier this year, Paltrow was nominated as the most-hated celebrity in Hollywood, surpassing "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart.
