She burst onto the scene with her life-changing single "Hit Me Baby One More Time" and teenage girls the world over lost all chill. Today she celebrates her 33rd birthday and we celebrate not just her existence, but her style. She's had some serious fashion ups and downs, but she'll always be perfect to us.

In 2001 Brits and her then beau, Justin Timberlake, literally made fashion history when they showed up to the American Music Awards in matching black-tie-denim.

In 2001 the whole world became a slave to Britney Spears... including snakes.

Sheer and mini; it was her thing.

In 2003 the best movie that was ever created came into our lives (Crossroads, for those of you living under a rock) and Britney was rocking some kind of urban Barbie inspired look. It felt SO right.

LOW SLUNG DENIM SKIRTS WERE EVERYTHING.

In 2004 her love of small, glitzy red carpet looks became apparent. How did we not pick Vegas sooner?

What was meant to be her massive comeback turned into a sloppy, drunken performance in 2007. It's still one of the hardest things to watch on YouTube.

We could see the tracks in Britney's hair extensions for a good year or so post-shave. Do you think maybe the bad coat and tight mini dress was an attempt at distracting our eyes from her head?

Then in 2008, after a very rocky road and a divorce (PHEW) she made an impressive comeback, picking up a swag of awards at the MTV Video Music Awards and reminding us why we never lost hope.

Madonna even invited her on stage at one of her concerts, proving she was officially back in the building. And her style was coooooool.

Clearly Mads inspired her next reinvention.

By 2011 Britney's bod was banging, her hair was flowing and the body con dresses were strutting.

In 2013 she stepped out with her boys who are ALL GROWN UP WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN? They are definitely her best accessory.

Oh HAI, Business Britney! Britters looked AMAZING all suited up and with a sleek bob as she launched her very own lingerie line.

Last year she brought all of the glam to the Peoples Choice Awards.

But earlier this year it was RAINBOW HAIR DON'T CARE.

And Vegas has clearly rubbed off.

But just last week as she lit up the Las Vegas Christmas tree it was a textured bob atop a chic, black jumpsuit. The best part about Britney as that you just never know what's going to happen next. To be continued...
