Today’s birthday girl Angelina Jolie turns 45. Having been in the public eye for nearly 30 years, we’ve watched her grow from a 16-year-old girl into a mature woman who still dominates the movie screen and works tirelessly as a humanitarian. Over the years, she has gone from the ultimate red-carpet rebel to the ultimate icon. Her transformation has been in keeping with her work with the UN and her maturation into motherhood.

Although her red-carpet style has evolved radically over the years, Jolie still remembers her former fashion preferences fondly, saying. “At school I wasn’t that popular person. I was a punk. I loved leather, PVC, and fishnets. Those were my three favorite fabrics in my early 20s. I remember the first time I wore PVC pants. I was waiting for an audition, sitting in the sun in LA. By the time it was my turn, my pants had fused together. I didn’t get the part. But I loved those pants.”

In the gallery below, you’ll get a clear view of just how far she’s come and how much her red carpet style has evolved.
