Paula Abdul is known throughout Hollywood for her talents as a choreographer, dancer, singer, and television personality. She started her career as a cheerleader for the LA Lakers. In the 1980s, she was one of the most sought-after choreographers, as it was the height of music videos and her talents were just what everyone wanted.

She had some pop hits in the late '80s and '90s that put her on the map musically, but really came back into the spotlight in the 2000s when she took a judging role on American Idol. She left after the eighth season, but then went on to judge The X-Factor with fellow Idol alum, Simon Cowell.

Paula has had an adventurous style through the years, always keeping us guessing! Every once in a while she shows her true fashion know-how, but it's clear she prefers the wild and wacky to the demure or simple.

Abdul turns 51 today, June 19th, and in her honor, we took a look back at her style through the years.
