It’s hard to believe that Gwyneth Paltrow has entered her forties!

The Academy Award winning actress and devoted mom turned the big four-oh on Thursday, and RadarOnline.com is celebrating her special day by taking a fashion flashback of her best and worst looks over the years.

Early in her career Gwyneth fell hard for Brad Pitt - as well as Calvin Klein – and it was hard to separate her from the two men on the red carpet and even onscreen! Throughout her movie Great Expectations, Gwyn modeled several of Klein’s designs, which impeccably graced her lanky figure.

In 1999 Gwyneth scooped up the Best Actress Oscar for Shakespeare in Love, in her most iconic look of all times. The red-lipped beauty stunned in a simply elegant, pink Ralph Lauren gown, which put her on every Best Dressed list.

Even though she has a natural grace and sophistication, Gwyneth has been known to show off her body in super sheer and tight ensembles - sometimes even resulting in R-rated style! From the New York premiere of Shakespeare in Love to a TIFF event in 2000, Gwyn walked the red carpet in super sheer attire, sans bra and not afraid of showing her assets!

Gwyn has always been a big supporter of her fashion designer pals!

In the early 2000s the actress was influential in launching Stella McCartney’s career, wearing her Chloe collection, and years later, her namesake collection to infinite events.

She has also rocked her fair share of pal Victoria Beckham’s uber-sexy dresses.
