I have a well-documented love/hate relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow. The Iron Man 2 actress is the quintessential icy blonde. Too perfect to live, yet alive and blogging about how she can “do ridiculous things like be a 37-year-old mother of two and wear shorts.” Wow, so crazy of you, you old bag! When I think of G-dog’s hair, I immediately think of the immaculate mid-length blonde… But do you remember her Brad Pitt-era pixie? The brunette phase of the late ‘90s? The braided updo that was a big freakin’ deal at the 2002 Oscar Awards? Ah, memories. Let’s take a look back at Gwynie’s hits and misses. You be the judge which is which.
Gwyneth is an extraterrestrial a blonde through-and-through. But in 1999, she was briefly a mere mortal.
I’m so use to seeing Gwyneth with that just-past-her-shoulders length on the far right, but she wore a short style in ’97 and a super looong look in ’07. Which is your fav?
Gwyneth wore her hair super straight, wavy, and curly–all in 2009. (While simultaniuously contracting her abdomen muscles + silently judging you.)
Gwyn looks like the lost Spice Girl with this high ponytail in ’99 and a more elegant in a pony with volume in ’04.
There is the Oscar dress of shame from 2002, a super cute bun from ’06, and a chic French twist from ’08.
