As a diehard fan of pretty much anything Gwyneth Paltrow does (GOOP, cookbooks and awkward mom dancing included), I rarely—if ever—find fault with any of her red carpet style choices. It seems, however, that I am alone in that mentality, because the actress has stepped out in more than a few controversial looks during her several decades in the movie biz. So today, in honor of Gwyneth’s 41st birthday, I’ve rounded up 15 of her most daring ensembles to date. Whether they showed lots of skin, were disarmingly sparkly or, um, could’ve perhaps used a good bra, all of them prove that the star’s not above ruffling a few feathers every now and then. Happy birthday Gwynnie, you rule-breaker, you!
