A Short and Spectacular Recap of Birthday Girl Kim Kardashian’s Style

You’ve come a long way, Kim K. Before she was one half of glossy power couple Kimye, the now 34-year-old Kardashian was just plain ol’ Kimmy—and her style was much different, to say the least.

But, hey, whose wasn’t? Everyone has (hopefully) changed at least a little bit since 2006, when young Kim K first hit the scene in knee-high boots, enormous hoop earrings, and cleavage-baring blouses. Ain’t no shame!

To celebrate the most famous (or infamous?) Kardashian’s October 21 birthday, here’s a short look back at her (semi) spectacular style evolution.


2006! Big hoops! Boots! Split shoulder seams!

A tonal, casual outfit complete with oversize aviators in 2007.


Oh, hello, 2008 white tank top and cropped vest combo.


Wearing a purple bubble skirt and belted leather jacket in 2009.


2011. Also known as the Kris Humphries era. This Givenchy genie dress was big news.


Doing a sleek yin-yang suit look with Kanye in 2013.


Kim’s understated minimalist phase in early 2014 was pretty stellar.
