Not only is Solange Knowles an actress, DJ, mother, and aunt — to quite possibly the most famous baby in the world — but she's also a budding style icon, making waves in the fashion industry with her quirky, covetable looks. To say that Solange has confidence is an understatement; she rocks bold colours, big hair, and beautiful ethnic-inspired prints, all with a sophistication and effortlessness that quickens our heartbeat. She's a veritable mix-master with the uncanny ability to blend downtown cool-girl with well-travelled aplomb, pairing embroidered separates with attention-getting heels, printed turbans, and chunky beaded jewellery. In honour of this one-of-a-kind fashion maven's 27th birthday yesterday, we are celebrating Solange with a look back at some of her most style-setting looks to date. — Additional reporting by Brittney Stephens
Arguably the most fashionable twins on the planet, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are celebrating their 27th birthday today. Hard to believe considering they've jam-packed so much into their young lives already. Actresses, authors, fashion designers and style icons, the dynamic duo have always been quite different in their hair and makeup aesthetic with Mary-Kate being more daring with her hair hues and Ashley preferring a more polished look. Take a look back at the birthday girls and their boldest beauty looks throughout the years.
It's Kristen Stewart's birthday today! The girl with the sultriest eyes in the biz turns 23 and to mark the occasion we've trawled through her beauty files to chart her highs and lows. The poster girl for porcelain chic, her glam-grunge look is a hit with her many Twilight fans. Click through to see her beauty evolution.
Birthday girl Olivia Wilde is undoubtedly one of our favourite style-setters — the actress, producer, and philanthropist isn't one to shy away from dramatic dresses on the red carpet (remember the stunning Marchesa gown she wore to the 2011 Golden Globes?) — but she also seems to have a soft spot for the classic, quintessential black dress. When it comes to dressing up, Olivia isn't afraid to take risks with cut-outs, open backs, or shorter hemlines, but she looks just as comfortable keeping things sleek and sophisticated in a full-length gown or ladylike pencil dress. In honour of Olivia's 29th birthday yesterday, we're celebrating with a look at her captivating and not-so-basic black dress looks over the years; click through to see them all now!

Take a look through her best beauty looks to date, and join us in wishing her a happy birthday!
Today, Australian actress, model and all-round nice girl Jodi Gordon turns 28! Jodi burst onto the modelling scene as a leggy 13-year-old (yep, 13!) and ever since then she's been on a career trajectory that's taken her overseas and crossed over into the TV world. She starred in Home and Away for five years and has been in three films, not to mention numerous modelling gigs. Better still, she married the love of her life, football player Braith Anasta, in a beautiful sun-soaked ceremony in Bali last year! Often spotted laughing together on the red carpet, or sharing romantic pics on Instagram, Braith and Jodi are the real deal and one of our favourite Aussie couples. To celebrate her birthday, we've found some of their cutest pics — click through to check them out, and happy birthday, Jodi!
The US might be getting ready to officially welcome President Barack Obama back for another four-year term, but today we're celebrating another milestone: Michelle Obama's birthday. Yesterday, the always-chic First Lady turned 49, and we can't wait to see what she's got in store for us (style-wise) in the year ahead. Her campaign ensembles alone are worth a closer look. From her Michael Kors burgundy brocade dress — a dress she's worn twice before — to her now-iconic pink wallpaper Tracy Reese dress, Michelle was spotted rallying by her husband's side all over the country, clad in her signature mix of high-low wares. Think knee-length dresses, cute cardigan sets, eye-catching costume jewellery, and classic pumps. We've rounded up the Michelle's best fashion moments from the campaign trail and throughout the years, so keep clicking. Happy birthday, Michelle!
Let's all just take a moment to admire Amanda Seyfried's hair, again. It's her 27th birthday today and we're taking a look back at her beauty looks over the years and, as it turns out, she's got the best hair we've ever seen! With her a coveted cosmetics contract with Clé de Peau Beauté under her belt, Amanda stays true to her signature style of long blonde locks and nice and safe neutral eye makeup. But let's not to discount her dramatic makeup moments. She ramped it up with an up 'do or two while promoting Dear John, along with some seriously shimmering and smoky eyes. To celebrate her birthday, we're tracking her beauty style from the Mean Girls days to now.
When you think of a true Aussie survivor, chances are you'll be thinking about one Miss Kylie Minogue. At the age of 44 (and looking better than ever!), Kylie is still at the forefront of style, particularly where beauty is concerned. Whether she's been rocking a mad '80s perm, donning a peroxided 'do or pulling off '50s curls, Kylie's hair has been copied the world over — not to mention her always-gorgeous makeup looks. But aside from surviving some more questionable 'dos, our Kylie has also pulled through something far more serious: breast cancer. Never once losing her grace, charm and effortless beauty, we've always been in awe of Miss Minogue's strength. October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we thought it would be a great time to celebrate Kylie's best hair and beauty moments with a retrospective gallery, spanning all the way back to when she first burst into our lives in 1988. Click through the slides, and enjoy the many looks of our very own princess of pop!
