Today is Victoria Beckham's 39th birthday! When we think of impeccably chic women, we picture Victoria strutting hard in a pencil skirt, sunglasses, and sky-high heels. The fashion lover-cum-designer has nailed her signature style and often leaves us wondering: how does she do it? If you've done your research, as we have, then you'll realize this is a woman with a serious commitment to her look. While there have been undeniable changes in her fashionable aesthetic (like breaking her own no-flats rule), VB never does anything halfway; she rocks it head to toe. Here's a fashion flashback dedicated to her on her big day. Happy birthday to the fashion artist formerly known as Posh!

Since today marks Miss Stewart's 23rd birthday, we're celebrating in a major way. We've already taken a look back at her red-carpet style — now we're wishing Kristen a very glossy birthday by peeping her most fashionable editorials.

There are two celebrity princesses celebrating a birthday today! One portrayed royalty on the silver screen, while the other went from film to the real thing — Anne Hathaway channeled a regular girl thrust into royalty in The Princess Diaries, while Grace Kelly starred in movies like Dial M For Murder, Rear Window, and To Catch a Thief before marrying Monaco's Prince Rainier III in 1956. They've also both experienced some sweet Oscar bliss; in 2010, Anne hosted the ceremony with James Franco, and in 1955, Grace won the best actress award for her role in The Country Girl. Perhaps most importantly, both leading ladies have risen to fame and subsequently become fashion icons of their days; not only do we have Grace Kelly to thank for the Hermès Kelly bag, but she was also the picture of poise, polish, and well, grace — something that 30-year old red-carpet beauty Anne Hathaway has also perfected. We're celebrating both birthday girls with photos of their unmistakable similarities and stately style — click through to see them all!
Can you believe Gwyneth Paltrow turns 40 this week? As gorgeous as she is, the actress has proven herself to be more than just a pretty face, having won an Oscar early in her career and turning in a variety of excellent performances.

Check out our favorite 10 roles.
Today is Beyoncé's 31st birthday! It's been a big year for the new mom, who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter back in January, but her superior style hasn't slowed down. Beyoncé Knowles has been bringing the glamour since her days as a Destiny's Child — but this is a star who continued to shine solo, both professionally and sartorially. Beyoncé's fashion persona has always been one of funky-glam, bright hues, and lots of embellishment, which she always rocks with the utmost humility and sophistication. This is a diva who stays true to her taste, but tweaks herself to the times, opting for sexy, swingy frocks, tailored blazers, and artfully draped gowns. Whether on stage, on the streets, or on the red carpet, B knows how to work it, own it, and leave us wanting more. In honor of B's big day, we're celebrating with a look back at 60 of her most memorable fashion looks.
Today may mark his 51st birthday, but in truth, Tom Ford doesn't look a day over 33. That's no small feat, especially when one considers the very busy life he's led: the 18-hour days as the creative director of Gucci, the five-year stint pulling double duty at the helm of YSL, the critically acclaimed filmmaking career, and — of course — the rise of his very own eponymous empire. Through it all, Ford's not only maintained his dapper sense of personal style, but he's also maintained his striking good looks. In fact, some may say he looks better now than ever. At the very least, he's definitely perfected his steel-eyed red-carpet pose.
But that's not all. Not even close. The man's also delivered his share of memorable quotes, more than possibly anyone else alive in fashion today with the exception of Karl Lagerfeld — and the Kaiser's had a 17-year head start.
So, in honor of the oft-controversial, always-entertaining designer's Aug. 27 birthday — not to mention his way with words and skill with a pose — here's a look at some of our very favorite Tom Ford quotes.
As an entrepreneur, mother, actress, musician, and red carpet glamazon, Jennifer Lopez is a force to be reckoned with. Her risk-taking style has served her well in an ever-growing career and business endeavors, but we can't overlook her bold, no-holds-barred choices on the red carpet, either. Who could forget the belly-button-baring Versace number she wore to the Grammy's in 2000? The gorgeous actress — who highlights her enviable assets in labels like Roberto Cavalli, Versace, and Zuhair Murad — is continually surprising us in bright color, all-over sequins, and body-conscious cuts. Today, the singer-actress-business-woman extraordinare is turning 43, we're celebrating the fearless, sexy style of Jennifer Lopez with a look back at some of her memorable moments on and off the red carpet.
It's hard to believe Heidi Klum has aged a day since her early fresh-faced covers for the famed Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, but the supermodel mom turns 39 today. In honor of the bombshell's birthday, we're celebrating with a look back at her sexiest editorials to date. Sure, "The Body" can carry a bikini like nobody's business, but the ageless Klum stuns in just about everything else, too. From beachy beauty to easy denim, click on to see just how versatile — and gorgeous! — the supermodel is in 25 of her best editorials.
It's been well over a year since Emmanuelle Alt took the helm of Vogue Paris, and while the aesthetic of that magazine may have changed, one thing's for certain: Alt's personal style has not. In fact, if there's one thing that can be said about Alt, it's that she definitely sticks to a look.
"Her style is her big shoulders, long legs, tight jeans, sleeves up to the elbow, one hip out. I personally like her. She’s a handsome French woman," Karl Lagerfeld has said of the minimalistic, admittedly low-maintenance editor in chief. "I don't look after myself. I don't do yoga, Pilates, those things. I hate physical effort, I don't run anywhere, but I am superenergetic. Makeup? I just black my eyes, and that's it. My hair? I get it cut on set. I never go to a hairdresser. I'm not sure I'm French," Alt has said.
Regardless, we think the überstylist's French appeal is quite apparent. So in honor of her May 18 birthday — and her refreshingly low-key chic — we've gathered up some of our favorite Alt-in-uniform style moments. Bon anniversaire!
