Tatyana Ali's Style Evolution From Scrunchies To LBDs (PHOTOS)

It's always fun to look back on our favorite childhood TV stars to see what they've been up to all these years.

It's also fun because we get to relive all the ridiculously awesome clothes they -- and all of us -- once wore.

Tatyana Ali, who turns 34 on January 24, rose to fame in an era of scrunchies and floral bobby pins as Ashley Banks on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Starting in 1990, she hammed it up as the baby of the family in plaid dresses, oversized tees, Doc Martens and yes, the occasional scrunchie.

The beloved sitcom ended in 1996, but Tatyana's stayed on trend, whether it was high-waisted denim in the late '90s or knee-high boots in the early 2000's. The same holds true today as Tatyana returns to the red carpet sporting sleek LBDs and cutout gowns to promote her latest gig, "Second Generation Wayans" on BET.

Which means we'll finally be getting more Ashley Banks -- er, Tatyana Ali -- in our lives! Fingers crossed there's better on-air fashion this time around...
