It's actually funny to remember how we first came to know the name Nicole Richie. She was Paris Hilton's tanned and troublesome sidesick with a penchant for hair extensions and crazy eyeshadow. . . And while we loved that Nicole for all her fun and experimentation, we can't get enough of Nicole version 2.0. Over the past few years, she's morphed into a veritable hair and beauty icon before our eyes, mixing it up between sexy smoky eyes and old Hollywood curls, matte lips and rockstar hair, fresh glowing skin, topknots, coloured eyeshadows, black hair, blonde hair, extremely desirable hair — you name it, she's done it. Take a walk down memory lane with us, and see Nicole's most memorable looks since we've known her.

The all-American actress turned 34 yesterday, and to celebrate, we're taking a look back at some of her best beauty moments.

Drama aside, each week, fans of the show delight in glimpsing back into the lives of '60s-era movers and shakers. And just as costume designers help bring a script alive by outfitting stars with fashions to suit their characters' personalities and circumstances, hairstylists and makeup artists are tasked with creating specific looks to reflect a mood.
