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!

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