From Scrunchies To Shoulder Pads, Paula Abdul Is Forever Our Girl

She's danced her way into our hearts.

If there's one thing about Paula Abdul we can all agree on, it's that she never, ever plays it safe when it comes to fashion. (OK, and she has killer dance moves).

In the '80s, the brunette singer favored feathered bangs, shoulder pads and scrunchies. In the '90s it was all about double-breasted suits, bold colors and midriff. And today, the pop icon continues to pack a punch in bodycon dresses and beautiful blowouts.

To celebrate Abdul's 54th birthday on June 19, we're taking a look back at all her wild, wacky and wonderful looks over the years. Straight up, this might be the best style evolution ever.
