In Honor of Gwyneth Paltrow's Birthday, a Look Back at Her Most Provocative Looks

Happy 39th birthday, Gwynnie! Yes, it's true, Gwyneth Paltrow turns 39 today. She has a lot to celebrate: amazing acting career, two gorgeous kids, newly-discovered singing talent, popular cookbook, devoted GOOP following. While she's usually charaterized as a blue bloody girl-next-door type, when you look back at her fashion choices, she's anything but prim. Gwyneth is not afraid to show some nip on the red carpet (even while posing with a First Lady), and we salute her for it.
