For Gwyneth Paltrow, Change is Afoot

By Liz Kelly

We've lambasted Gwyneth Paltrow here -- at pretty much every opportunity -- for her insouciance, her doofy baby-naming habit (Apple, Moses) her proclivity for sticking her foot in her mouth (comments about preferring to live in England where people are wittier). But, strive as we must to keep everything in our shallow comfort zone, today's focus on Gwynnie is all about looks, baby.

Like a couture butterfly emerging from a hippy-dippy chrysalis, recent snaps of Paltrow are heavy on va-va-voom. She's turned in her long, straight, parted-in-the-middle hair-did for a flouncier, bouncier shoulder-brushing hairdo. Where she once exuded a quiet, granola-fied class -- Ralph Lauren meets hemp -- now there's nothing subtle or soft about her look. And she's been rocking some may-jor heels lately, even at the risk of towering over "Iron Man" co-star Robert Downey Jr. (Who couldn't possibly look more junior next to the statuesque Paltrow).

And, yes, we all have a right to change. But we are equally entitled to judge. So -- is she pushing it or do we like the new, high fashion Gwynnie 2.0?
