While Nina Dobrev's gown had jaws dropping, Gwyneth's Emilio Pucci number had eyebrows raising, thanks to the bare midriff and open back – a bold pick for the mom of two. While we're still split about whether exposed abs belong at a black tie event, we all agree that if anyone can pull it off, it's Gwyneth.

They may have "consciously uncoupled," but Paltrow and Martin still stick together when it comes to family matters. The exes reunited in New York City for a festive pre-Thanksgiving dinner with their two children, Apple and Moses, where all four appeared "super happy" and "chummy." Friendly relations between the two are nothing new, though: Just days after announcing their separation, the couple headed to the Bahamas together (along with the kids), and have continued to meet up for family dinners. Paltrow even called Martin "father of the year" in a recent speech, appeared on his band Coldplay's new album, and took Apple and Moses to see to see Coldplay play in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where they stayed in the same hotel as Martin. Perhaps there's something to "consciously uncoupling" after all.

They were the Golden Couple of the 1990s, but after almost three years together, Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow suddenly ended their engagement. "They were so much in love the day they were here. He was holding her hand the whole time. They were looking at her [engagement] ring," Paltrow's hairstylist Laurent told PEOPLE at the time.

Not one to miss any alternative beauty trend, the Goop guru uses coconut oil – for just about everything. But her favorite place to put the all-natural product? Inside her mouth. (Yes, you read that right.) "I just started oil pulling, which is when you swish coconut oil around [in your mouth] for 20 minutes," she told E! Online. "It's supposed to be great for oral health and making your teeth white."

It's unclear whether any hypnosis took place when the 2001 film's costars, Jack Black and Gwyneth Paltrow, reunited at photographer Rob Reynold's L.A. art show. Paltrow posted this picture to Instagram in May 2015 and included "#oldfriends" and a heart emoji in the caption.

Just like angst-ridden teens, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow tried the goth thing at the 2000 and 2002 Oscars, respectively. Though it was par for the course for Versace-clad Jolie, who at the time was wearing Billy Bob Thorton's blood in a vial around her neck, it marked "a pretty major fashion misstep" for Paltrow, who later admitted as much in her GOOP newsletter.

Both Gwyneth and Monique Lhuillier have enviable outfits at the star's Goop boutique opening in Dallas, but it's the movie star's look we dare you to try. The one-shoulder jumpsuit, sparkly-heeled pumps and unexpected Jennifer Meyer turquoise danglers all add up to a flattering, and subtly spirited, ensemble.

We rarely wear our plaid button-downs with anything besides dark skinnies. But Gwyneth gives the boyish shirt some feminine flair by complementing her goop x Band of Outsiders top with a flared skirt. A vibrant Valentino purse and metallic-accented Saint Laurent shades punctuate the ladylike vibe.

For The Imagine1day Gala in Beverly Hills honoring her workout guru Tracy Anderson, Gwyneth wears a white crop top and black skirt (fun fact: her Alice + Olivia design is connected in the back by a lace panel!) and flaunts a sliver of incredibly toned abs (courtesy of the night's honoree, no doubt). She tops it all off with red lipstick and a coordinating clutch.

A month before turning 22 on Feb. 27, Chelsea looked at ease – alongside Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna – at a 2002 Versace show in Paris. Between whispers with her front-row pals, she exclaimed "wow" as models sashayed down the runway. But it was the former First Daughter – debuting a sleek new bob, smoky eye makeup and a chic Versace pantsuit – who sparked that reaction from the fashion in-crowd.

If Paltrow and Martin are the example of what conscious uncoupling looks like, well, it doesn't look so bad. Just one day before the couple of 10 years announced they were separating on March 25, 2014, they headed off to the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas to escape the limelight. "I just thought they were on vacation," an observer at the North Eleuthera airport told PEOPLE. "They didn't seem happy or unhappy."

Gwyneth Paltrow shares the restorative recipes she turns to when she needs to lose weight and boost her energy in her book It's All Good. That means cutting out foods that are deemed bad: bread, deepwater fish, chicken eggs, sugar and red meat.
THE PLAN: Gwyneth kicks off every day with a green juice pumped full of kale, apple, lemon, mint and ginger. Lunch could be a beet-greens soup, followed by a snack of almonds soaked in water (which digest better than raw) and then a BBQ chicken dinner using her own paprika-spiced recipe.
