Kim Kardashian West has come a long way (sartorially) since her bandage-dress-wearing days. But she definitely still lives by the popular fashion rule, “When you find something you like, buy it in three colors.” Below, we look back at Kim’s style evolution over the past decade, in honor of the star’s 35th birthday. (You’re welcome.)

The Bandage Dress Phase: Let’s face it. Her body was built for bodycon. And she spent most of 2006 and 2007 wearing the trend.

The Twinning with Paris Phase: We like to think that Kim and Paris were the inspiration for the dancing twins emoji. (And yes, they went to Oktoberfest together in 2006 and wore matching dirndls. It’s never too soon to resurrect this Halloween costume.)

The Sweater Dress and Boots Phase: Don’t lie. You were wearing the same looks, before you had OOTD inspiration on Instagram.

The Runway Phase: Remember Kendall, Kim had some catwalk model moments too. She didn’t make it to Paris Fashion Week, but she did walk in late Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier’s 2007 show, modeled for Marceau during L.A. Fashion Week in 2007 (holding a guitar!). Then there was that time she brought the matching tracksuit to the forefront of fashion on the 2B Free Spring 2008 Collection runway, her Heatherette moment in 2008 and, of course, when she walked in the Red Dress Fashion Show during NYFW in 2010.

The Tailoring Your Own Clothing Phase: Because we’ll never forget that time Kim cut a Dior tress in two pieces, and actually used the hashtag #DiorDressICutInto2Pieces.

The Turtleneck Dress/Coat Combo Phase: Kim exclusively wore this look in the winter of 2014. And it was the most covered up she’s ever been.

The Underwear as Outerwear Phase: We don’t know which style move Kim K loves more: Baring her abs in crop tops or baring her undies in see-through dresses. But the latter look is NEVER going away.

The High-Fashion Phase: Thanks to her husband Kanye West, this is more than just a phase, it’s a lifestyle. Above, Kim’s three famous Met Gala looks. We can’t wait to see what she’ll wear to the tech-themed ball this year. (Full robot suit, obviously.)

The Athleisure Phase: In March 2015, Kim’s favorite outfit was a mesh crop top and knit pencil skirt.

The Borrowed from the Boys Phase: Correction, borrowed from Kanye. Kim dedicated a whole blog post to stealing clothes from her husband’s closet.

The Pregnancy Fashion Drape Phase: The expectant mom finally revealed the secret behind all those long coats: “To cover my fat arms and ass! It’s such a trip how your body grows and changes, and at the end of the day, you have to wear what you are comfortable in and what you feel good in.”
