Happy birthday, Sarah Jessica Parker! Even before she became known for her impeccable style and fabulous taste in footwear (hello, Manolos!), she was always a Girl Who Just Wanted to Have Fun. So, to celebrate her 48th year on earth, we’re taking a look back at how the Sex and the City star transformed from teen actress to full-fledged style icon. “Every picture I see of myself from [the ’80s] is pretty embarrassing,” the formerly big-haired star told InStyle. “But I find comfort in the fact that I looked like everyone else; I wasn’t alone in making those insane choices.” Click through the gallery to see her most memorable beauty moments.
