Ellen Degeneres' Style Evolution (PHOTOS)

Ellen DeGeneres' love of menswear began years before it became trendy, but it doesn’t mean she always got it right. The Louisiana comedian and talk show host wore high-waisted, baggy and unflattering suits throughout the 90s. Even her casual outfits exuded a masculine vibe -- roomy vests, white sneakers and blazers with wide lapels.

Thankfully, DeGeneres has refined and streamlined her style. She still wears suits, but they’re sleeker, fitted and more feminine. While she definitely wouldn’t be caught in a dress or skirt (unless it’s for a laugh), we think that DeGeneres should invest in suits by Tom Ford and Rachel Zoe. Both designers have created menswear styles that would fit DeGeneres’s aesthetic like a glove without going overboard.

Take a look at DeGeneres’ suit evolution as she celebrates her 54th birthday this Thursday with her longtime partner, Portia de Rossi.

Meanwhile, check out this video for a look at DeGeneres like you’ve never seen before.
