Eve's Style Evolution, From Ruff Ryders' First Lady To Red Carpet Rebel

We can always count on Eve for gritty-meets-glamour style inspiration.

There is so much more to Eve's style than the paw print tattoos on her chest.

When the Philly-born star first exploded on the rap scene in the late '90s, she stood out with her electrifying hair colors, super-tight mini skirts and diamond choker necklaces. When Eve transitioned into the acting world, the glamorous gowns she wore always had a bit of edge.

Fast forward 10 years and Eve is now a wife and stepmother living in London. While her fashion choices are a bit more elegant, she knows how to effortlessly blend sex appeal with sophistication.

As moviegoers head to theaters on April 15 to watch Eve reprise her role as the only female barber Terri in "Barbershop: The Next Cut," we take a walk down memory lane with her shocking style evolution.
