Lea Michele: Style Evolution (PHOTOS)

In 2006, actress Lea Michele was relatively unknown — at least off of Broadway. She was the star of the hit musical Spring Awakening, long before she was the star of one of the biggest shows on T.V. today. In other words, Lea was a true "Gleek" long before it was cool to be.

Lea turns 25 today and already she's had a whirlwind of a career, both on stage and off. Along the way, she's also gained fame as a sartorial star. Her look is a far cry from the buttoned up, cardigan-wearing Rachel Barry she plays on Glee. Lea's grown into a true Hollywood glamour girl, with some of the world's most coveted designers itching to dress her for the next Emmys, Golden Globes or Grammy's. Oh, and did we mention she's on the September cover of Harper's Bazaar?

We'd like to send a Birthday shout-out to our favorite Glee girl and take a look back at some of her most fabulous attire, on every red carpet from Broadway to Tinseltown.
