Julia Roberts has been a Hollywood fixture since the late ’80s. Born in Smyrna, Georgia in 1967, the movie star had her big breakthrough moment when she starred in Mystic Pizza—the Donald Petrie-directed film—with Matt Damon (blink and you might miss him). Following the 1988 hit, Roberts nabbed leading roles in movies like Steel Magnolias, Pretty Woman, My Best Friend’s Wedding, and Notting Hill, cementing herself as one of the most sought-after actresses in the biz.
Throughout Roberts’ decades-long career, she’s managed to win multiple awards, get involved in several charitable causes, and, of course, wear some of the most fashion-forward ensembles along the way. From her oversized ’90s suits to her sleek black designer gowns, Roberts’ versatile looks are still emulated today. Ahead, we reflect on her style evolution through the years.
