Kim Kardashian Turns 33: A Look Back At Her Once Enviable Fashion & Beauty Looks

Happy Birthday, Kim Kardashian! The most famous member of the Klan is turning 33 today. While haters have a thing or two to say about the over-sharing reality TV star turned entrepreneur, no one can deny that underneath that makeup, bleached blonde hair and, um, white onepiece is a true beauty and fashionista. Although some of her more recent choices have us believing otherwise, we've decided to instead focus on our favorite Kim K looks to remind us why we once loved her style.

Classic Hollywood glamour is Kim Kardashian's strongest look. Her gorgeous face and black locks are the perfect canvas for a body-hugging black lace dress, a little red rouge and an elegant chignon.

2. A Vision in Off White

In 2011, Kim Kardashian convinced everyone it was totally OK to wear a floor-length, form-fitting Antonio Berardi number to a daytime Vh1 awards show. Everything from her sleek ponytail to her simple white manicure said sophistication.

Kardashian covered all the basics in this look from 2009, from her Christian Louboutins to her retro updo. Although it is one of her most modest looks, we loved it.

Kim Kardashian owns the blazer and skirt trend in this pick from 2011. She manages to still make a flouncy, floral skirt seem sexy with black tights and a cropped tuxedo jacket.

5. A Parisian Beauty

Here, she kept things simple yet stylish while shopping the streets of Paris in 2011 in a gorgeous Carven frock, Christian Louboutin leopard booties and a quilted Chanel purse. Because when in Paris, do as the French designers do, right?
