Gwyneth Paltrow Takes the Plunge - Again and Again. Are You Loving This Look On Her?

Does anyone love a plunging, sternum-baring neckline more than Gwyneth Paltrow? That’s the question we asked ourselves after seeing the actress and lifestyle guru step out in another deep-V ensemble Tuesday night. We took a look back at some or her most noteworthy d├ęcolletage-revealing looks from the past few years and discovered that she may have the market cornered on this silhouette.

For Tuesday’s Stand Up to Cancer event, Paltrow selected a cobalt blue neoprene David Koma dress with a unique cutout neckline and leather trim. (The bold design has PEOPLE readers in a heated “Love It” or “Leave It” debate.) Earlier this month, the star left little to the imagination, putting her best chest forward (couldn’t resist) in a long-sleeve black Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit at the designer’s exhibition in L.A. That look totally reminded us of the Boy. by Band of Outsiders onesie (with satin lapels!) that she wore to a pre-Oscars party in 2012. (The woman can’t say no to a plunging jumpsuit. We bet there are a few more in her closet for date nights with Chris.)

Perhaps her most buzzed-about low-cut ensemble ever is the emerald sequin Elie Saab gown she wore to the Bambi Awards in 2011. And finally, Gwynnie proved that she doesn’t always follow the rule “If you show if off on top, cover up on bottom,” selecting a super-sexy deep plunging Roksanda Ilincic LBD at the National Movie Awards in 2011.

Which look is your favorite? Think Paltrow should mix it up a bit?

She can take “the plunge” there’s nothing to fall out.

Diana on

She has no significant figure on her chest. Ridiculous to wear such garments.

holly on

What is she trying to prove? Save that look for 20 something actresses that have more curves to flaunt. This looks like a cry for attention

Eliza on

She is only 41? She looks fifty!

Nancy on


Kate on

I love it! I think this look is great on her!

Sophia on

She always looks gorgeous. I love her style, effortless chic.

Katie on

She looks fabulous! Her smaller chest is the only reason she can pull the look off as well. Eliza- what a ridiculous comment, there is no way you can actually think she looks 50, she barely looks 30 in the pictures…somebody sounds like their hating!

I personally think it’s great that Gwenyth Paltrow recognizes what works for her frame.

She is very fit and not very curvy with a small bust. Therefore, she realizes (or has been instructed by her stylist:) that the best looks for her to give her that curvy feminine shape need to be dramatic and deep cut at the bust.

On long or short silhouettes, this helps create the illusion of a more lush frame.

nothing sexy about her.

Amy on

Bony chest.

Poppy on

Oh honey, the look works much better when you have breasts to show off.

Rhonda on

She needs to stop showing her bony (no breast) chest. I don’t care if you’re well endowed or as flat as a pancake, the dresses that she’s wearing are showing way too much!

Rayna on

I like the first pic. It’s harder to tell she doesn’t have cleavage.

Lolo on

Frankly, she looks ridiculous. The empty space on her chest distracts from the outfit.

oldilocks on

In order to be “d├ęcolletage-revealing,” don’t breasts have to be involved?

nic on

She doesn’t have to much to cover anyway !

Guest on

So unattractive. Yawn. Why won’t she go away. She has no career so I don’t know why she keeps popping up everywhere.

guest on

Cover it up noone wants to see that boney boys chest.

Elina on

It would look better if she didn’t have the chest of an 11 year boys. Not sexy at all.

Nancy on

Too much time on her hands! She’s already won an Oscar, written books, married a rock star, had kids. Do something more important and shop focusing on yourself, Gwyneth.

claire on

She needs to hire a hair stylist and make-up artist or fire the ones she has and get new ones.

giraffeh2o on

She has the chest of a prepubescent boy. Don’t really understand why she thinks this is attractive or worth showing off.

Sherrie on

So gross! She is as flat chested as a little boy.

smithy on

In the most recent picture (all the way to the left), she looks like she’s done something not so good to her face.

Dixie on

She is a very homely woman and apparently didn’t get the change required to become a boy. These dresses do not appeal to her skinny figure. I don’t really understand why she is even newsworthy other than her mother is very beautiful and a wonderful actress, and her husband is a cute rocker.

Trailrunner on

The thing I don’t get is why she wants to show a bony sternum. Gwyneth would choose this style if she believes it’s sexy, but trust me, it’s not. The middle picture (black pants) looks attractive with the long necklace, as it covers up the bony structure, but otherwise I don’t see the appeal. She’s pretty and looks great for her age, but I certainly don’t think she looks 30, and I can think of a number of different ways a designer could beautifully dress her trim figure without drawing everyone’s attention to her chest bones.

Carol on

Ewwww – what a ghastly look.

Kinda fits her cold and hard personality, tho.

shanna on

I don’t know why…she looks like sh!#

Danni on

Beautiful, as always!

fifiwereking on

i love it…. plunging necklines look best on smaller breasted women like gwyneth…a curvier woman in these styles looks saggy or sleazy…

Raffaele Zccaro on

Whats your criteria for posting??? Does thr truth count?

maxine on

the waif look went out a long time ago.

rocknmovie on

She looks great for her age. But she is overdoing it with the plunging necklines, mostly that she doesn’t have much to show. I do think that small breasts look best, but hers are a bit too small.

Jerry Langhofer on

She needs a boob job first.

Hotgal on

Her tiny boobs are perfect for the look.

EddieD on

The look is good. She does it at a
time when she is not all flat and dried out and doesn’t need implants.

ImALadyToo on

She is just obsessed with herself. And, she has no chest, so I’m not sure what she is trying to show off.

mitchg on

Plunging neckline and no chest? Waiter? Check please.

cin on

Enough already..can you say mid life crisis
