From stealing our hearts as goth teenager Lydia Deetz in Beetlejuice to starring in cult classic Heathers to her famously sticky fingers in the early-00s, to reviving her A-List status as a retired and ragey dancer in Black Swan, Winona Ryder is an irrefutable big screen queen. We adore the doe-eyed lovably-looney actress and can think of no better way to celebrate her 40th birthday (Yes, 40. We’re all old farts.) than to take a trip down memory lane.

Since Gwen Stefani‘s days as an ab-baring, hair-dying, Spiderweb-walkin’ frontwoman in No Doubt, this birthday girl has been turning heads.

Let’s celebrate the bleached-blonde beauty’s 42nd birthday by taking a look back at her most classic, and sometimes questionable, fashion moments. [Photos: Getty Images]

A star of the boob tube since age 18, Heather Locklear is one of Hollywood’s ageless wonders. The feather-haired actress turns 50 today and looks as sexy as ever. From her early years on T.J. Hooker, Dynasty and most famously Melrose Place, to revisiting Amanda Woodward on the recently revamped Melrose Place, Locklear brings her fresh-faced glow to every role she touches. To celebrate this ever-hottie heading over the hill, let’s take a look back at Heather through the years.
Perhaps now the poster child of the massive “boho chic” trend, birthday girl Nicole Richie hasn’t always been so glam. Her days palling around with Paris Hilton not only led to plenty of debauchery, but dread-like colorful extensions to boot. After a scary thin streak in her mid-20s, Richie found her hubby Joel Madden and motherhood has treated her well since. Kids Harlow and Sparrow have inspired a healthy lifestyle, permanent glow and icon-status style. Check out the dramatic transformation of Nicole Richie below.

From Baywatch to countless boob jobs, Pamela Anderson has always had a knack for keeping us on our toes. While the sheer mass of her chest is enough to startle any living creature, the girl is a legend tried and true. Appearing on more Playboy covers than any other model, Pam’s career with the magazine spans over three decades. Just when the world thought her iconic red bathing suit and beloved slow-mo run down the beach, hair ablaze with wind, was more than anyone could possibly ask for, Pamela Anderson has given us a career rich with television genius, literary mastery, regular nudity and her very own vegan milkshake.
To celebrate Pam’s 44th birthday, check out these photos of the evolution of our favorite beach babe’s career.
From the earliest days in their joint role as Michelle Tanner on Full House, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have been starlets with ‘tude. Though rarely seen on screen since their years in the TGIF line-up, the scrunchied, pouty-lipped duo made a killing on Full House syndication and their seemingly-hundreds of videos of capers and sleepovers, and the subsequent soundtracks and books. Remember “I Am The Cute One?”
These days the billionaire twins spend their time as businesswomen with a successful clothing line and while the Olsens often still coordinate outfits for events, gone are the days of clones in denim and hair bows.
Want to join us in celebrating the Olsen twins’ 25th birthday with 25 photos of the fashionistas growing up? You got it, dude! [Photos: Getty Images]
