IE9's new look cribs heavily from other browsers that have gone minimalist. The search bar has been removed, and the search features in the location bar are more robust than before. The Command bar is now hidden by default, and its options have been folded into the Tools menu. The Status bar is off by default, too.

There's also an updated New Tab landing page, one that favors favicons for easy identification over screenshots for your most frequently visited sites. It also has links to previous sessions, closed tabs, and InPrivate browsing.
