Jessica Biel turns 32 today! Whether she’s working on her svelte physique, experimenting with bold makeup, or flaunting her incredible wardrobe on the red carpet–remember the matching suits she and hubby Justin Timberlake wore?–we can’t help but fall in love with the star’s every move, particularly Biel’s defining moment upon entering her third decade.

“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become proud of the traits that make me who I am. Maintaining my individuality is really important to me because otherwise I can easily slip into somebody else’s life,” Biel tells us. “So I’m getting better at it. It’s a process, but it’s getting simpler.” Cheers! In honor of the star’s birthday, take a look back at her evolving style, starting with this gem from 1998.
