After being seen as quite boring for a long while, Gwyneth Paltrow shook things up when she was promoting “Iron Man” last year.

The looks became risky as the hemlines and heels were higher.

We developed a girl crush – and heel fetish – during that time, and since then she’s kept things interesting on the red carpet.

Last night was a classic example when Gwyneth arrived at the “Children Of The City ‘Champions Of Hope’ Benefit Gala” wearing a bedazzling Preen Fall 2009 dress with a cut-out detail along the neckline.

With her hair styled in soft loose waves she paired her dress with black Vicini by Giuseppe Zanotti Design ankle boots and a kabbalah bracelet.

The rock chick vibe was toned down with natural make-up and no jewelry.
