Gwyneth Paltrow may be known almost as much for her iconic stick-straight, ultra-long locks as her landmark roles, so when the Oscar winner showed up to The Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards in London just hours ago in a new shoulder-grazing tousled do we couldn’t believe our eyes. We love how Gwyneth’s updated look lends her the same graceful elegance but with a modern spin — but we want to know what you think. Tell us: Do you like Gwyneth’s new shorter hair, or do you think she should have stayed true to her trademark style?

She looks gorgeous and totally modern! I think this hip, fresh look represents a new and exciting chapter for this A-List, Oscar Winning actress!

How can anyone hate long hair? It’s beautiful and romantic. In studies the large majority of men found long hair more beautiful than short hair. I think short hair can look great too but, usually if you picture a princess or a beautiful woman you picture long flowing hair. It goes back to our instincts and biology, long hair is a subconscious indicator of health and fertility. I’m not sure Gwenyth chopped off her locks or if she just removed her hair extensions. Either way it looks very nice and more suited for her age and for a mother but, I still like the long hair look for her. Gwenyth is exactly how I pictured Serena Van Der Woodsen, she was supposed to have very pale blond hair and Gwenyth is a New Yorker so a younger Gwenyth is my vision of Serena even though Blake Lively is doing a good job she’s not quite as ethereal as Serena is meant to be.

I love it, she’s not 21 anymore. It looks fresh and healthy

I think her best hair style was in “Sliding Doors” – short and cute!

I like the new tousled look on her. It almost looks like she is getting away from the middle part – which doesn’t flatter anyone.

Man, it just looks wonderful.

She could have taken it shorter. I hate long hair

It still looks like a hot stringy mess just a shorter version.

So much better! She’s looked like a cheap, bleached blond Morticia for years now.
