One just got her AARP card, one’s had it for nearly half her life and one’s TV alter ego sometimes dresses like she might be up for her card soon. But these three very different women share one thing in common (besides Jan. 17 birthdays): They all have their own unique sense of style, which we’re celebrating today.

First up, Zooey Deschanel, who’s 34 today. The New Girl star has made a name for herself with her trademark nail art, A-line dresses and ever-present black tights, though she did take a few risks in 2013 (well, sort of). She and her New Girl character Jess Day do share some of the same twee style, but we say “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” — more often than not, we find ourselves asking “Where’d she get that?” of her perfectly girlie looks.

Next is Michelle Obama, who’s ringing in the big 5-0 with a bash thrown by her husband at the White House Saturday. She already went through her “midlife crisis” (bangs) and she’s entering her second half-century looking chic, put-together and as fit as ever. That fitted midnight blue dress she wore just yesterday is already on our lust list.

Finally, Betty White, who’s 92 years old and still going strong. Though she’s become associated with her Hot In Cleveland tracksuit, White always looks perfectly put-together at awards shows — favoring pantsuits with sparkly tops that we can’t wait to wear once we’re beloved TV icons and national treasures. Hey, we can dream.
