Britney Spears turns 32 today! The singer has brought plenty of hotness since hitting the scene in 1999, including endless amounts of ab-baring ensembles and multiple envelope-pushing dance moves.

This time last year, the world was shocked because Hannah Montana had grown up and chopped her long, blonde locks off. Fast forward 365 days, and it's clear that we had no idea what we were in for when it came to one Miss Miley Cyrus.
It's impossible to deny that she's the biggest celebrity of the year, talked about across the globe for her music and performances, but also firmly planted on everyone's radar thanks to some stellar — and some crazy-in-a-good-way — hair and beauty choices. Ever-present are a set of bold red lips (her signature colour) and a cheeky smile or poked-out tongue, while her hair can be slick and sweet one day, spiked and wild the next, but usually somewhere in between.
As this talented lady turns 21 today, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to look back over her changing beauty looks — from the innocence of 2006, right through to the dark and dangerous look of last week at the Bambi Awards. Click through for a mind-blowing trip down memory lane!
Miley Cyrus may only be turning 21 today, but she has packed quite the career into that short amount of years. Miley first burst onto the scene in 2006 when she was only 13 and landed the role of a lifetime in Disney Channel's hit show Hannah Montana. Since then, Miley has had her career ups and downs, including twerking on stage at the MTV VMAs and lighting up a joint at the MTV EMAs this year, but she managed to come out of the child-star machine as a bona fide pop star.

Dubbed a chameleon by Dominco Dolce from Dolce & Gabbana for her ability to know how "to play with her image," we've seen Scarlett Johansson pull many style switcheroos throughout her time in the spotlight. The Avengers actress is renowned for rocking a red lip as well as her ability to be both sweet and feminine and an ultimate bombshell. To celebrate her 29th birthday today, we're taking a trip down memory lane, charting her beauty looks over the years.
Despite turning just 29 today, Hollywood starlet Scarlett Johansson has spent nearly two decades in the film industry. To celebrate the A-lister's birthday, we're taking a look at her movie roles through the years.

Take a look to see Scarlett Johansson grow up on screen over the years!
Rachel McAdams turned 35 yesterday, and to celebrate, we've compiled some of her sweetest and most smiley moments! The Canadian-born actress has quite a lot to grin about these days with the recent release of About Time. Over the years she's won praise for her roles in Midnight in Paris, Mean Girls, and who could forget her breakout part in The Notebook? In honour of Rachel's big day, click through to see some of her happiest moments!
Of all her titles — author/ presenter/ model/ It-girl — ‘style icon’ is probably the one used most frequently to describe British beauty Alexa Chung. And at the Tunnel of Love Fundraiser in London, she delivered proof, adding casual-polish with pointy flats and a quilted Chanel chain bag.
Alexa's enigmatic sense of style and freakish good looks ensured she was destined for life in front of the (street style) camera. And with a Mulberry bag named in her honour and three British Style Icon of the Year Awards under her belt, it's fair to say Alexa is officially one of fashion's modern muses. Put simply, whatever she wears, we want.
Take a look at the quirky queen of chic's most stylish moments in the gallery.
Oscar winner Anne Hathaway didn't always love to exercise. But ever since training for her role as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, Anne (who turned 31 yesterday) has been a fan of fitness and clean eating (her month-long starvation diet for her Les Misérables role notwithstanding, of course). How does she do it? Here's how Anne stays healthy, happy, and fit.A new love: Before training for The Dark Knight Rises, Anne Hathaway didn't exactly love to work out. In fact, she said she hated exercising but eventually changed her mind. "There's a workout hump where you're so weak that you hate everything, and everything's painful, and you look like an idiot," she said about her training regimen. Now Anne's "that person" who loves to exercise and likes to do Bikram yoga to stay fit.
Fitness dedication: To get in shape for her Catwoman role, Anne did stunt training five days a week and danced for an hour and a half daily. She also lifted weights and practiced martial arts and yoga. Her intense regimen helped her realise that even in Hollywood, it's not always about your dress size. "I've always thought that skinny was the goal, but with this job, I also have to be strong," she told Harper's Bazaar in 2011.
Her diet: When she's not depriving herself to drop 11 kilos in just over a month — as she did to portray dying prostitute Fantine in Les Misérables — Anne's diet is a lot less dangerous (about her two-week starvation, Anne said, "I don't recommend [it]. . . . You can be too thin.") Except for a stint eating meat in her early 20s, Anne Hathaway usually sticks to a plant-based diet. The "commitment-shy" vegetarian sometimes struggles with sticking to her convictions, but since reading Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer, she has become even more dedicated to her vegetarianism. When Anne wants to indulge, she turns to vegan desserts — she's a huge fan of vegan New York City bakery Babycakes.
Being comfortable: Getting older has helped Anne feel more comfortable in her own skin. "I'm turning 30, and — I hope this isn't obnoxious to say — I feel prettier and much more myself. I guess I just feel much more satisfied with less now," she said in Vogue in 2012.
