Sharon Stone kicked off her career at the very start of the '90s opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in Total Recall, meaning that as she went on to become one of Martin Scorsese's leading ladies, nabbing an Oscar nomination for her role as a doomed hustler named Ginger, she ended up showcasing the best of the decade's style on the red carpet, too. Postcards from the Edge, for example, Mike Nichols's 1990 film with Meryl Streep, found Stone wearing mom jeans to the premiere, and which were followed by an array of motorcycle jackets, two-piece separates, cheetah prints, and headbands between Scorsese's Casino and Paul Verhoeven's Basic Instinct over the next few years. As the decade came to a close, though, Stone started to turn her back on looks leaning toward menswear and instead started pulling out the gowns, especially at the amfAR galas, where Stone's proved a frequent (and frequently glittery) attendee. Not that that means she's taking any less risks: there were no less than three cut-outs on her lower abdomen at the group's French edition in 2014, though that hardly compares to the literal pair of wings she wore to a gardened-themed gala in 2015. On the actress's 59th birthday, take a look back all that—along with her ever-changing hairstyles, from pixie cuts and heavy bangs to curls and a sweeping short updo—here.
